I'm very scared when it comes to going to the dentist, even being 6' 6"" tall. I want to relate that this was an emergency wisdom tooth extraction (within a day referral). I was told due to the last minute referral, I may have to wait a minimum 2 hours. They saw me almost immediately (30 min mostly). Dr. Hughes introduced himself and was very concerned about my level of anxiety and even said that most of his patients had to be sedated to the procedure. I told him I was willing to do the local anesthetic instead and he complied with my wish. The dental assistant was very understanding about my anxiety level and she agreed to inform Dr. Hughes about my wishes of not being informed of what was being done as well. He numbed the area thoroughly and this is the FIRST oral surgeon who was very good at numbing the area, he was extremely gentle compared to what I had heard. My tooth was extracted and he allowed me to wait 20 minutes to relax because of my anxiety and the shock that it wasn't even as bad as I had expected. I HIGHLY recommend this oral surgeon to others who get easily scared by simple numbing, he is outstanding! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me. I'm the biggest ""baby"" when it comes to dental procedures. By the way, my tooth was extremely sore before it was extracted and I was terrified that the numbing would hurt when he used the needle, I was happily wrong. The staff and Dr. Hughes need to be commended for their efforts and patience with me.
Pros: simple rooms, numbing is done well, quick procedures
Cons: It's in an old building, lots of people waiting
