I just had all four of my wisdom teeth extracted this morning (one emerged, one partially emerged, and two totally impacted). During the consultation he answered all of my questions, and just a few minutes ago he called me to see if I had eaten, if the bleeding was easing up, and if I had any questions. As a person with debilitating anxiety including a pretty severe phobia of the dentist, I’d been putting this surgery off for about three years. Dr. Welch did an amazing job making me feel better, informing me about the pros and cons of the surgery and how to take care of myself post-op. This was the best possible experience for something that was so unbelievably terrifying to me. Dr. Welch and his entire team were so professional and nice! I was very nervous so they prescribed me a sedative to take this morning before I came and instead of counting down after giving me the IV sedative, Dr. Welch just asked me questions about my hobbies and interests until I passed out essentially. I am in the older range to get my wisdom teeth out (21) so the roots of all of my teeth were totally formed. Dr. Welch told me that he could do a coronectomy on my lower right impacted tooth and probably have to come back a month later to get the roots of the teeth removed but he waived the fee for another more intensive form of x-ray to decide between that and risking nerve damage in my jaw. I appreciated that he gave me the choice instead of just telling me the one side because it established so much trust. Besides, every single person in the office that I had the pleasure of talking to, even if it was just for a few seconds was unbelievably nice. If you have to get any sort of oral surgery, especially extractions, and *especially* if you have dentist anxiety, I 100% recommend Dr. Welch and his team.
