Patient Review by Melissa E

I had my wisdoms teeth removed by Dr. Whitman and let me tell you, I would recommend going to him for this type of procedure. I was very nervous about the surgery and he made me feel very comfortable and relaxed, he engaged in conversation with me and also made me laugh. The staff was also very welcoming!

A Staff that is exceptionally great to see and talk with. They try to work with whatever best fits your needs. The Drs have a great personality. They explain everything they plan to do and love to listen to your questions. The best Dentist I have ever had! 8 months later you go back to see him for your 2nd time and he remembers who you are!! It feels great!

Patient Review by Patty B

We have been treated here multiple times over the past couple of years for an ongoing seriously complicated injury/restoration. Dr. Whitman has done an amazing job. His skills as an oral surgeon are very apparent. Couldn’t be more satisfied with the outcome so far.
