Why people love AV Dental Surgery Center

Dionn F.

I cannot recommend this practice enough. I had two badly decayed top wisdom teeth and they booked me same day I called, extracted the two teeth and sent me on my way all within 90 minutes. It was literally painless and I cannot say enough how caring they were!! The front desk lady was so kind and helpful as well. I literally wish I could give this practice 10 stars. If you are wondering who to see to get wisdom teeth extracted, AV Dental Surgery is the one!

Fiona G.

I’m more than happy having visited av surgery center. Their doctors are gold-handed professional perfectionist. Being scared before the operation as I had quite a serious problem I was pampered by his friendly caring staff. The atmosphere of this beautifully designed office played additional relaxation role! I wish we had more such wonderful doctors!

Gary R.

I had a wisdom tooth extraction and consult regarding some joint problems with Dr. Nakano. The doctor was clear, detailed, and comprehensive with his diagnosis and proposed treatment plan. The procedure was quick and virtually painless. The office manager was also attentive to all my needs. I was impressed how accommodating they were, considering the difficulties of the pandemic. I look forward to returning in the future.

Johnathan S.

During the height of the quarantine, I had a wisdom tooth emergency. Thankfully, Dr. Lopez was there to save the day. Not only was he empathetic enough to help me during this time, he was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and thorough. His office is run by an exceptional manager went out of her way to check on me before and after my appointment. During such a chaotic time, this office was calm and responsive, putting me completely at ease. I could tell they actually cared for my well-being. They resolved my emergency and I cannot thank them enough. I highly recommend.

Cristian M.

They are excellent. Called for an emergency.... was available within the next pair of days. Consulted & extracted. I was super nervous but they were so good that I couldn't even tell it happened. Only complaint is that they did not have a payment plan... so no good insurance? Pay up front. But overall...I'm extremely satisfied.
