I was a little skeptical because I read all the reviews and there were a couple of bad ones. But my experience with Dr. Nash was fantastic. I told her I was a little scared to get my wisdom teeth removed and she told me there was nothing to worry about and explained the whole procedure to me. I had been directed to her through my dentist because my extraction was a bit complicated because my tooth was too deep into the nerve so I needed to see a specialist. She gave me a pamphlet that explained how the extraction was done and how to handle the aftercare and left me with it so I could read it calmly for a few minutes. I took pictures with my phone on the relevant pages and they have been very helpful. She then came back and we went over the procedure and she explained everything and diligently answered all of my questions. She was incredibly delicate with my mouth and allowed me to listen to my music with my headphones which were really soothing for me. The extraction went like this: First, she used some topic numbing gel for which when she used a needle to put in local anesthesia I didn't even feel it. She then extracted the tooth, I felt some pressure but absolutely no pain. I was very impressed by how fast the actual extraction went. She then put some local anesthesia on my top gum (I got 2 wisdom teeth extracted on the left side) and extracted it even faster. Only with the second tooth, I felt a little bit of pain as she injected the local anesthesia but it was very mild and lasted 1 second. She gave me ibuprofen and antibiotics for the pain and to prevent an infection. Only 6 hours after the procedure my face is not even swollen! I am incredibly happy with doctor Nash and would definitely return if needed in the future. I didn't have insurance and they told me the cost at the beginning and charged me exactly as we had discussed. When I was seating, after reading the pamphlet, I asked Dr. Nash if she was going to sedate me (in addition to the local anesthesia) and she said that in her opinion it wasn't necessary and expensive. I asked how much it cost and she answered and reassured me that it wouldn't hurt and that I didn't need it. I really appreciated her honesty. Although I didn't have money I was in a vulnerable position because I was scared and she could have taken advantage of it. Also, her assistant was marvelous! She also helped me and walked me all the way through. She knew Spanish which was super helpful because she talked to me in my native language. I absolutely recommend Dr. Nash! She is amazing, professional, nice, and gets the job done uneventfully. Also, although it is a lot of money, her prices are very fair given her level of professionalism and even convenient, comparatively speaking! If you have no dental insurance don't despair, Dr. Nash is the best and will get the job done outstandingly and it is worth the investment! Also, her office had good COVID prevention.
