Oral Surgery Associates of Milwaukee, S.C.
Very thorough and professional in the consultation visit giving me confidence in selecting Dr Kortebein to go ahead with the wisdom tooth extraction, which was completed earlier this week. Procedure went very well. Same thoroughness by both the Dr Kortebein and his support staff. Super follow through providing instructions, soliciting questions, and following up by phone the day after. Also worth noting was that there was a question on an adjacent tooth condition and potential extraction necessity. This second tooth concern actually drove the need for the wisdom tooth extraction (a 64 year in the making issue). Upon removal of the wisdom tooth, only normal dental repair will now be required on the adjacent tooth. Hopefully I will never need an oral surgeon again.....but if so I will be returning.

This is the first time I have ever had a tooth extracted. I was terrified!! But I was in a lot of pain for months so I knew I had to have it done. From Alyssa (the receptionist) to the assistant and the Dr. they were all patient, kind and understanding. Dr. Kortebein did an excellent job! The procedure was no where near as bad as I thought it would be. I had the extraction yesterday, had very little bleeding and today I am sore but finally relieved of the awful pain I had been dealing with. I will certainly recommend oral surgery associates to anyone who may need oral surgery.
