So, I was stupid and ignored my wisdom teeth until I was in too much pain to sleep. My dentist gave me two referrals in Redmond. One of them (we'll call it "Not Appearing In This Review, DDS") couldn't even see me for 4 weeks. Dr. Eggert saw me the very next day, and by the end of the appointment I had a good understanding of the procedure, all of the potential risks, and the things I could do to make my recovery more pleasant. What's more, his office got me a surgery appointment the next morning.
As for the surgery - as far as I can tell, Dr. Eggert and his staff are awesome. I was completely knocked out for the procedure, but ever since the first thing I can remember post-surgery (getting out of the wheelchair and into my wife's car) I've had no tooth, socket, or jaw pain whatsoever. My swelling and bleeding were gone after 6 hours. Obviously everyone's experience will differ, but I'm pretty sure an experience like this one is impossible without a very talented surgeon like Dr. Eggert.
I went from being in too much pain to sleep to pain-free within 48 hours! I'm very grateful to the wonderful people who work here, and I'll recommend them to anyone who will listen.
