This was the second tooth extraction I've had done here and like the first it was done in a matter of minutes. Although the waiting was could make one anxious. Staff was very friendly and supportive. I would definitely recommend them. In fact, for this visit I traveled 250 miles to come back to this office since I moved to northern Wisconsin and offices there either could not get me in for weeks or would not take me without a referral.

Every thing went so smoothly and didn't even feel the tooth being pulled. Dr. Kortebein was great and Ashley the assistant was a delight.

Oral Surgery Associates is the best. They talk you through what will be happening and everything that will be going on. I have a pretty high anxiety when I go to the dentists and usually require nitrous oxide, but the dentist and staff talked me through it and I did it just fine without. They are very caring and answer all questions. Highly recommend!!

Pleasant experience - despite the procedure. Surgeon was very patient and Linda (the assistant) was so sweet. She helped keep me calm as my anxiety was through the roof. Will definitely be back for a 2nd implant in the near future!

Tooth extraction would not be described as pleasant, but this place actually was, they are cautious, caring, comprehensive, and quick! Take advantage of filling forms ahead of time online, if you are able

Super fast to get an appointment and to get admitted once there. The staff was very friendly. Security metrics in place with covid-19. I felt no pain. I couldn’t have rated this higher.
