Patient Review by DEBBIE M
I would highly recommend this office to anyone that needs surgery. They fit me in to an already busy day due to my cracked tooth with a nerve giving me pain. Dr. Dean or just Dean as he said to call him, informed me that he would be taking me in for surgery later that day. I was so elated to think I could be without this pain. He told me that with the nerve pain I was already feeling that he would sedate me first knowing I had been through a lot and the best way to ease my pain and be able to pull the tooth was by sleeping through it. A very kind, compassionate and skillful doctor! A++
