i am the mother of a 17 year old daughter who was absolutely terrified of having her wisdom teeth removed. Dr. Smith did an amazing job helping her understand exactly what the procedure was going to be and set her at ease. I received excellent feedback throughout her surgery, to ease my own anxiety. I feel compelled to say that contrary to the previous post, I found Dr. Smith to have excellent bedside manor. There was never an inkling of condescension in his mannerisms. My daughter is adopted, and on Medicaid. I know that he received very little in reimbursement for her procedure, but we were given top notch care. Personally, my daughter was grateful to forget the experience, she recovered quickly, with no major discomfort. How many people desire to have memories of a major surgery? Not me. We will be back to see Dr. Smith...we have four children behind her!

Dr. Smith is a good surgeon. BUT, he has ethical issues. He is condescending in attitude and evasive in answering questions. He, and NONE ONE ELSE at that practice will tell you that you have other options in anethesia selection. He tells EVERYONE you need to be IV sedated and its actually for HIS own conveiniance. What you also will NEVER be told is the drugs you will receive in the IV. The main drug used to sedate you is called "Versed". He also injects Nubain and Phenergan. Google Versed side affects and read for yourself.
Versed is know for causing amnesia. You may forget some or all of the visit. It is also known as a "compliance" drug. It forces you to be quiet and cooperative. This is why he uses it.
When pinned down and forced to admit it, he says EVERYONE who goes there gets it. You should have informed choices, not be forced to receive Versed. I am disgusted with myself for allowing him to decieve me.

The next problem you will have is they force you to pay out of pocket UP FRONT for initial consultations and xrays even though you have good insurance. You will have to fight hard to ever get a refund. They don't want to refund. In my opinion, There are better doctors to go to for help. They may be good doctors but the deception and trickery totally over rides that.

When I had my wisdom teeth pulled in 2002 I chose Dr. Shehan. My dentist at the time referred me to him, telling me that he did wonderful work. I was petrified to have my teeth pulled as this was my first time, and he made the experience less stressful for me. I came out of the surgery healing fine, and actually healing quicker than what Dr. Shehan had expected. He did a wonderful job, and I would highly recommend this practice and Dr. Shehan to anyone who's nervous and or needing to have teeth pulled.
