What a great visit! I was in pain and being referred by my dentist as he could not finish an extraction, my first. He worked on my tooth for an hour and a half and my jaw was traumatized. But you guys finished getting to tooth out and it was fast and painless. I will and have already referred someone to you.

The staff were kind and sensitive and gave great care. I would recommend this group to anyone looking to improve their life by fixing their teeth. They were helpful and the process was clear and well discussed. Dr Kortebein is a true professional and made me comfortable from the moment I met him through the procedure and in follow up.

Overall everything went well, the doctor & staff were very kind which is great because the anxiety of having an infected tooth pulled is not fun. Sarah was my favorite, put me at ease, told me everything she was doing, just a kind soul!

I don’t like the Dentist, however, this was the best experience I’ve ever had getting a tooth extracted. The Dr. was very professional, attentive and gentle. The tooth was out and I didn’t even know it. I would recommend them to everyone needing oral surgery!

My visit with Dr. Kortebien was better than I could have hoped for. I was scheduled within one day of my referral. The Dr. And his assistant Linda made my experience as palatable as possible, and my recovery was practically overnight. Thank you very much for a great experience!
