Dr Davis was awesome! He explained all options to me very thoroughly and explained to her exactly what was happening during my tooth extraction. He's the most calming doctor and his assistant Kalen was over the top kind and knowledgeable. It was a great experience.

As a health care professional, retired, they clinical team was professional, caring, clear communication, data driven, conservative and engaging in all facets of dads dental care, age risks and stewardship of his well being. I considered Dr. Davis, and excellent MD surgeon on communication skills in this consultation.

The dental assistant was VERY accommodating to my requests. I wish I remembered her name. I needed the numbing agent without Epinephrine, I listened to my music on headphones - which were kind of big, and requested laughing gas. I felt like I was being demanding, however, the assistant did not make me feel demanding at all. She was very accommodating. Dr. Davis was also very accommodating to take a break when I asked or answer my questions. He took the time to review the area in my mouth to make sure the procedure would actually be successful.

As a senior on Medicare it is hard to find Dental care that is covered by my insurance. I called my insurance and got 4 Oral surgeons with in 50 miles. I have given this information to my Dentist office to help others with a big recommendation for Dr. Davis at Dental Specialists.

Dr. Was very knowledgeable. Even though my daughter had missed mymedication, he was able to ask the right questions due to my age to determine that I should follow up with my Rhuematologist regarding a hold for a week on my medication. Good catch.

I was there for an implant consult, and dr. spent a lot of minutes up front talking about a flipper, bridge, etc. and that's not what I was there for. Once the implant was addressed, there was a lot of information to digest. And even more to digest when the plan and estimate was received.

Post op instructions varied greatly depending on the source (assistant while walking out the door, written information, assistance I spoke with when I called in with a questions/concern). Please give the post-op information to parents earlier so they can have all items on hand. Getting when you have a child in pain and then have to stop for multiple things is not helpful

I would have liked to know that there was a possibility the procedure would last longer than anticipated. I realize that sometimes things don't go as planned, but I ended up having a 3 hr procedure when I was told to expect about 1 hr when scheduling my appointment.
