Dr. Kortebein was great, the assistant seemed new and somewhat nervous but still did a good job. It was my first experience with nitrous and everything went fine, worst part was the shot and after that didn’t feel a thing.

Very damaged tooth that I thought would be difficult to remove. The procedure went very well. I am completely pain free less than two days following the extraction. Scheduled with them because they got me in in a timely manner. They come highly recommended due to complete pleasurable experience.
