Patient Review by Jo Ann P

This was my first visit with Orlando Oral & Facial Surgery for a consultation with Dr. Whitman. I was cordially greeting with a welcoming hello and how can I help you by a staff member. I found each staff member very knowledgeable and cordial. Dr. Whitman was very informative about the procedures that I would be receiving under his care for the dental extractions and implants. He also has a jovial nature!
