What do clients have to say about you?

“Broke a crown off at the gum line of a front tooth. Due to the discomfort I was experiencing I was able to get in an was seen by Dr. Sock. WOW what a great doc. He explained in detail was he was going to do. He extracted the remaining tooth. Absolutely no pain or discomfort. I feel better now with it out. Highly recommend this practice and Dr. Sock in particular.” – Frank M.

“This was my first implant—and from what I’ve heard people can and do have a lot of anxiety. BUT the experience I had of getting an implant from Dr. Sock and his staff was absolutely amazing!! AND I do not say that lightly. I had been to another professional, highly ranked oral surgeon prior to seeing Dr. Sock-and that doctor, after observing bone loss around my missing tooth, did not feel I could safely and reliably have an implant inserted-that it would fail and my best bet was a bridge. ENTER Dr. Sock!!! He used state of the art 3-D imaging full dimensional scanning and imaging as well as experience to first plot careful reconstructive bone-grafting to the area. Then he verified the secure healing and strength of the area- and only then used carefully, computer guided precision drilling and insertion. It was pretty painless, quick—and YEAH! -PERFECT!!! Dr. Sock and his wonderful staff are worth every bit of your time and money for a perfect and practically pleasant solution to oral surgery! THE VERY BEST-A+++++!!” Ted R.

“Both of my children recently had their wisdom teeth out together by Dr Sock. It was an amazing experience from start to finish! We were there at 8 am and out the door by 9:20 with both kids! My children were awake( but a little drowsy) and very comfortable. The post op course was uneventful. I had a few questions and Dr. Sock and staff responded quickly. Totally impressed and highly recommended! Thank you ( and the kids thank you) Dr Sock!” – Carol A.
