I had several teeth extracted here all at once. It was quick and painless. I was very pleased that doctor Saxe took lots of time to explain everything and he even advised me on the correct partial I need, not to wear down my bones.
I asked him to make sure the ligaments were all out in order to prevent any cavitation (not to be confused with cavities), I was very grateful he listened to my request and showed me all the extracted teeth with the ligaments still attached.
He even took my blood pressure before starting, which was strange to me. I pointed out I never had my blood pressure taken at a dentist before and he said that it means they're not very good at what they do...which made me laugh.
The real star here was Lisa. I was extremely upset at my mom (who was not present) for not concerning herself with my well-being throughout my life and therefore letting me lose a total of 8 teeth. I was crying my heart out for having to lose 3 at once (one being visible).
Lisa closed the door, provided me with tissues, quietly listened and gave me all the extra time I needed to calm myself. It took me quite a long time to be able to do that, but she made it happen in private.
I believe she even held my hand while he was extracting which was extraordinary.
What I was very impressed with was that when it was all over not only did Lisa accompany me out the back door but she also quietly waited there as my ride picked me up.
She made sure I safely got in the car and I just didn't believe my eyes when I turned around and there she was...waving at me (!!!) all the way until I was out of sight, it made me feel like she was an angel looking after me. Wow!!! I was so very touched by that gesture because I had never experienced that kind of attention and level of service in my life by any medical assistant or even most people, really. I was truly impressed! Highly recommended! Office staff was really great, helpful and kind, too. :-)
