We count ourselves lucky to have received care from Dr. Yetzer. He was very caring, showing concern to my 17 year old daughter who had had a very rough 3 days with a lot of wisdom tooth pain because of an infection. He walked through our options and his recommendation at the surgical consult and also the day of surgery when there were some complications. We would recommend this practice and especially his expertise.

The procedure was an extraction that took a fair amount of force. The way in which the doctor communicated with me during the extraction to keep me calm and reassured was very appreciated.

Dr Yetzer and his Assistant are wonderful! I opted to stay with him, even after finding out he was out of our Health Insurance Network, because I felt very comfortable in his care! And He didn't let me down! My Surgery recovery has been wonderful! No Pain what so ever!! They did an excellent job setting me at ease prior to the procedure and the care they gave was amazing!! Thank You!!

Dr. Yetzer had not been informed my orthodontist had quite and there was an interim orthodontist that had taken over my case. As soon as Dr. Yetzer was made aware of this fact he got on the phone right away to go over the treatment plan with the new treating orthodontist to ensure they were both on the same page. I was hesitant about getting two of my pre-molars removed to begin with and was put at ease knowing both my orthodontist and oral surgeon thought it was the best route to take in my treatment plan.

Really there was no explanation of other options or discussion of the treatment plan. The doctor came in and performed an emergency extraction. The doctor was friendly and competent and quick. I had the treatment done and was on my way very soon.

Best dental professional I've ever encountered - hands down! He took the time to give a thorough and honest evaluation that didn't make it seem like the "sky was falling" in needing to get started with a treatment as soon as possible.
