What are wisdom teeth?
Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.

Patient Review from Mayah M
I had an appointment scheduled for a week out when I started getting pains from my impacted wisdom tooth. I ended up breaking off a piece of my tooth on a Friday, and my appointment wasn’t until the next Thursday. I called them and they got me in the same day no questions asked. Just wanted to say thank you to all of the staff. They were all very caring and nice individuals. Thanks again Dr. Paul for getting me in fast, and doing a great job!

Patient Review from Tyler W
Dr. Wagner and his staff are the friendliest, kindest, most caring people I have ever met. They are very personable with good sense of humors and will make you feel at home. On the day of my surgery, the staff knew how to keep my mind off of it by striking up fun conversations that really helped me feel at ease. Dr. Wagner did a phenomenal job with my procedure as my recovery has been extremely good. He even called me the next day to see how I was doing! If you are here reading reviews trying to make a decision on who to go to, I highly recommend giving Dr. Wagner's office a call, I promise you will not regret it.

Patient Review from Tyler C
The whole process was seamless. I am very thankful that I was able to quickly get in for my consult appointment and then schedule surgery less than a week later. It really helped reduce the amount of time I’d have to sit in anticipation anxiety. Staff was so friendly when I arrived and distracted me with fun conversation and before you know it I was awake again after the procedure and ready to go! I usually can’t stand being in any time of dentist or other oral health offices but Dr. Pamula was wonderful and very comforting. So far there have been no complications with the procedure and this good experience has definitely helped me reduce some overall anxiety for seeking care in the future.

Patient Review from Melissa B
Extremely professional and courteous staff both in person and on the phone. Staff were very helpful in scheduling a timely appointment that worked with my schedule. My dental assistant was very patient and calming in answering all of my questions and helping ease my anxiety. Dr. Wagner is incredibly kind and knowledgeable. He even personally called me on the day after my oral surgery to check on how my recovery was going and to ask if I needed anything further or had any questions. Outstanding service and compassion! Thanks for making a potentially scary procedure, a positive experience!

Patient Review from Jazmin C
I do not even know where to begin. I have so much respect and appreciation for Dr. Wagner and his staff. I went in for my wisdom teeth extraction with fear at the top of my list. Everyone was extremely understanding of my fears and walked me through every step. They were very calm and patient with me. To top everyone's professionalism, Dr. Wagner himself, reached out to see how I was feeling after the extraction. No amount will ever express my gratitude to Dr. Wagner and his amazing staff. I am very grateful to everyone at Dr. Wagner's and will definitely recommend his office to everyone. Thank you so much to Dr. Wagner and his staff.

Patient Review from Chuck C
Although I suffer from severe odontophobia (fear of dentistry), my wisdom teeth had to come out. Dr Wagner and the staff were kind, understanding, compassionate and professional. I'm glad I went through the procedure with Dr Wagner instead of anywhere else. He called me personally the next day to check on my status, and was genuinely concerned for me. I hope I dont ever have to go for further major oral surgery, but if I did I would return to Dr Wagner's office without hesitation.
