    Wisdom teeth removal. This is the third child of mine that he has removed wisdom teeth. Absolutely incredible. He is without a doubt the NICEST doctor/dentist I have EVER met! He spent so much time with me in consultation. Friendly, genuine, and it's most obvious he loves what he does.

    I HAD ORAL SURGERY TO REMOVE INFECTED TEETH IN THE BACK OF MY MOUTH AND TEETH IN THE FRONT WHERE I BROKE MY BRIDGE. THE PAIN WAS NOTHING EVEN AFTER THE SURGERY, JUST MILD DISCOMFORT. MY SURGERIES WERE SUCCESSFUL. DR. HARRIS HAS WONDERFUL CHAIR-SIDE MANNERS. HE IS COMPASSIONATE AS WELL AS PASSIONATE FOR HIS PATIENTS. HE IS ONE OF THE BEST ORAL SURGEON'S THAT I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH AND IT WAS A PLEASURE. EVEN HIS OFFICE STAFF HAS THE SAME MANNERS AS HE DOES. THEY MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR AT HOME, AND THAT'S WHAT MADE ME FEEL SO RELAXED DURING MY WHOLE FEW WEEKS OF PROCEDURES. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. HARRIS TO MY FRIENDS AND OTHERS WHO ARE IN NEED OF AN ORAL SURGEON. THANKS AGAIN. ROGER PAULMENO

    About Front Desk: THE FRONT DESK STAFF WAS GREAT. WHEN YOU WALK IN THE DOOR THEY SAY HELLO TO YOU RIGHT AWAY. EVEN FRONT DESK STAFF MAKE YOU FEEL RELAXED. IT'S A GREAT PLACE TO GO AND HAVE YOUR TEETH TAKEN CARE OF. THE ATMOSPHERE IS LIVELY AND THE PEOPLE ARE GREAT!!!!

Meds had to be readjusted greatly, went back in two weeks never felt a thing tooth out blood pressure great, real scarey when u r away from home and need help, I wish I could take him back to New York ,also this is the very first time I have used a computer to rate or talk about anything, over 55 and learning lots

    At 81 my mouth looked like I a face-full of Roquefort cheese. I decided to get bridges that required having 3 molars pulled. Since I have clotting problem because of a low platelet count Dr. Harris requested additional blood work so he felt comfortable extracting my teeth. His due diligence took some extra time. It was a bit frustrating , but long story short, it was well worth the time and effort everything went well and Dr. Harris and I survived the extractions !! He is a very caring and professorial young man. I would recommend him very highly.

    I had my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Harris a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't be happier! Painless procedure and quick recovery. I have and will refer everyone that needs their wisdom teeth removed to him. He genuinely cares about his patients, explains everything in depth, and always makes sure I understand everything. I wish all of my doctors were just like him! He is all around the BEST!!!!

    My neighbor used Dr. Harris a few years ago for her two teenage children. He removed the teenage son's wisdom teeth and replaced the teenage daughter's damaged front teeth with implants in an emergency situation, as she injured her teeth in a fall. My neighbor was especially impressed with the professional comfort and support Dr. Harris gave her daughter in this stressful situation. In the last month I was told by my dentist and endodontist I needed to have a molar removed. Dr Harris went over my X-ray with me and confirmed that my tooth needed to be removed. He explained the procedure and answered my questions. His kind and patient manner helped lower my anxiety. He explained everything during the surgery and kept checking to see if I was ok. The procedure was much easier than I expected. I had moderate pain the first night and I have improved each day. Everyone in the office was friendly and helpful. Dr Harris, thank you for making something I was dreading not so bad.

    The overall experience was above average. From the initial consultation through the 1 week post-op, Dr. Michael S. Harris and his staff provided professionalism and caring. The office and the procedure room are very clean and tidy. My stepdaughter had 4 wisdom teeth extracted and we waited in a post-op room that provided a relaxed environment. They had coffee, water, soda, and also a TV.I would highly recommend Dr. Harris to anyone needing oral and maxillofacial surgery.

    About Front Desk: The front desk staff are exceptional in all aspect of their job.

    Dr. Michael Harris saved my life. Not an exaggeration. Dr.Harris was treating me for infection of oral surgery performed by my periodontist. The infection caused an edema if my mouth and throat, restricting breathing. When I went to Dr. Harris he immediately recognized a life-threatening situation. He arranged for his staff to accompany me to Wellington Hospital and arranged for pre-admittance. I was x-rayed and in the operating room within hours. Dr. Harris performed removal of a cyst in my lower jaw. I was in ICU for five days, and Dr. Harris visited every day, including Sundays. Most important he recommended an infectious disease physician for a follow-up 6 week IV treatment of antibiotics. His follow-up with all my medical team; primary physician, periodontist, dentist, ENT MD, as well as my wife, was outstanding. That praise was echoed by the physicians themselves.
