I had a great visit! I was prepared for an overwhelming appointment since it is wisdom teeth extractions. However, I was explained everything thoroughly and understood what was going to happen and what the recovery steps were. I didn’t leave with any questions or concerns and I can’t not thank the staff enough for being so good to me.

I just want to Thank everyone involved this morning during my oral surgery. I was pleasantly surprised that the surgery itself went extremely well without any obvious pain. Dr. Kortebein and assistant Ashley did an extremely awesome job during the surgery process. I can say that from the moment I had arrived, everyone was so professional and friendly which made the whole surgery process a worry-free comfortable one and assured me that I was in good hands. Dr. Nancy Lawson was right on when she had previously informed me that you are all great people in what you do. Thank you all once again for a great job well done and an awesome painless experience! Take care!

What an outstanding group of dentistry professionals. I was referred by my general dentist of 25 years to Dr Kortebein and OSA. I required an emergency extraction. I was treated with a great deal of empathy and professionalism and was in their office in less than 24 hours in spite of the staff being booked for days. The entire procedure of extraction was completely painless and completed in just a few minutes. Oral surgery is serious business and you should seek out demand the best care for yourself. The entire staff at Oral Surgery Associates provides that type of care and experience.

I had a great experience with Dr. Kortebein extracting my 4 wisdom teeth. I had been procrastinating this procedure for some time but after meeting with him and listening to all the options I felt very comfortable knowing I would be in good hands. I decided to do the nitrous gas because I didn't want to completely be out for the procedure. Dr. Kortebein and his team were very kind with making sure I was doing well throughout the surgery. He is extremely skilled, professional, and knowledgeable in his expertise. I couldn't believe how quick he was able to extract all 4 wisdom teeth. I didn't experience any significant pain during or after the procedure which was a plus too. I would definitely recommend this oral surgeon to others who are looking to get their wisdom teeth removed.

I have a confession to make: Dr. Kortebein is my brother. However, when he was done extracting the tooth I asked him, "So are you ready?" to which he replied, "I am finished". Pain management is, apparently, his strong suit. That and I really enjoyed, being part Irish, the low-key and friendly staff in Oak Creek. One more thing, his newfangled x-ray setup was very comfortable (no bitewings!).
