What Past Patients Are Saying…

My daughter was referred to Dr Ferdowsmakan for impacted wisdom teeth. She had an initial consult with Dr F, then we scheduled the surgery for when it was convenient for us. Before the surgery, the nurse called in prescriptions for antibiotics, steroids and painkillers, so we were able to pick these up from our pharmacy before the day of the surgery. The staff was very friendly, the office was very clean, the surgery went well and on time. My daughter had no bruising and no swelling. Dr Ferdowsmakan even called me himself during the week to see how she was doing. The follow up visit was also on time and I felt like the staff was really there for anything we needed. I would recommend this doctor to everyone!

I am in the Air Force and they required that I have my wisdom teeth removed. Well, my brother had his wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Ferdowsmakan so I came highly recommeded. When I came in for the consultation he was very nice. He explained everything very well and made me feel comfortable. On the day of the procedure his whole staff put me at ease. Afterwards I had little to no pain. Overall an AWESOME experience. I would recommend him to ANYONE. I actually already have!

Dr. Ferdowsmakan did an incredible job with our daughter, Meghan. Meghan had braces for years trying to fix a serious overbite. It came to the point that it was determined braces were not the end all solution. We came to Dr. Ferdowsmakan’s office and we were so pleased with him and his staff. Everyone was so kind and gentle with Meghan. Meghan had her surgery in May of 2013. She had her lower jaw brought forward, and had a small implant in her chin to help fill out the look. Her teeth now line up correctly so that eating is easier, and her speech is clear. The additional benefit, is now everyone can see what a beautiful young lady she is, with a gorgeous smile. We were impressed with Dr. Ferdowsmakan’s thoughtfulness with Meghan. His was the first bouquet of flowers that she received at the hospital. He came in to check on her daily, even though his wife had just had a baby. When she went home, he continued to check on her progress.
