Dr. Andrews truly does life changing work! He performed upper and lower reconstructive jaw surgery on my son over two years ago. I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Andrews professionalism and the extreme care he shows his patients. Because of Dr. Andrews skill and knowledge, my son's life was transformed both physically and emotionally. We will always be grateful for Dr. Andrews!

Patient Review

Never once did I have any anxiety about having my wisdom teeth removed. Dr. Atwood was very professional and did an amazing job on removing my teeth. I couldn't have asked for better care and service. The only thing I wish I could have changed, was how crazy I was and the things I said when coming off the anesthesia.

Friendly staff, minimal wait times, worked well with my referring dentist so X-rays didn't have to be repeated. Dr. Andrews and staff made getting my wisdom teeth out as comfortable as possible.
