I had a wisdom tooth decide to give me a LOT of pain- and of course over a holiday weekend- 5 days total. I called at 8am- they got me in that same day and did the x-ray (digital image of entire mouth), consult, payment plan, and procedure within an hour and a half. Not having dental insurance was pricey, but the procedure was worth it. Also 3% discount for cash payment (at least something off) All friendly staff- Dr Smeltzer was all business, but kind. I was very nervous since I had never had anything worse than the flu or fillings done. Staff helped me by keeping me distracted. Surgical suite was nice. Partially strapped into the chair for sedation. Am afraid of needles so Dr Smeltzer kept me distracted while putting in the sedation needle. Then got fuzzy and next thing I knew it was all over and I was in recovery. Very nice nurse. Went over all after care with my husband- he pulled around the car and she wheeled me right out. 2 small wisdom teeth on one side and one slightly impacted wisdom tooth out on the other. That one had to be cut out- he used dissolving stitches so those don't have to come out - a big plus. also numbed my mouth before coming out of sedation so no pain. So far so good! No pain and no problems!

after an unsuccessful root canal i needed to have a top molar tooth pulled. the staff was very friendly, helpful and considerate. they called a couple days later to see how i was doing. the doctor was very knowledgable and compassionate. if i have to have to have this done again, i would return. he did a great job.

Both kids have had wisdom teeth removed and he is very expensive compared to other oral surgeons but close to us and preferred by dentist. I can say that if our youngest needs to have teeth out in a few years that we won't be back here. The follow up lacks and they don't even call to check on kids after surgery nor do they remind you of basic instructions for after care. The surgeon is in and out very quickly with little info provided and makes you feel like you are bothering him to ask questions. I'm just glad we didn't have problems with the proceedures but it it pretty straight forward pulling wisdom teeth.

This doctor had a very gentle touch and alleviated a lot of my anxiety once he started working on me. He explained exactly what he was going to do before he started the surgery and addressed all of my questions and concerns . The office staff and his assistants were all extremely attentive and reassuring. The follow-up calls were made frequently to make sure that I was o.k.

Dr. Smeltzer was great!!! He was kind, and caring, and listened to what I had to say. I have anxiety and he made sure I was comfortable. If you need to have extractions this is the guy to see!!

He seemed to know what he was talking about, but explanations to me as a patient were ackward. he literally used the phrase "you know" every other word. it was, you know, kind of distracting and, you know, made me not feel comfortable with his plan of treatment.
