Something I dreaded was really OK! They are genuinely concerned about comfort and care, and am totally pleased with my experience. The blast of cold air at the IV site is a great idea. I would definitely recommend this team. BTW I had Dr. Howerton, who had the graciousness to laugh at my jokes. (So did the rest of the staff, when we talked about peanut butter oreos -- ugh). Blessed be all of them.
Very friendly staff, made me feel very relaxed and comfortable and made the process fast and easy

- JACKIE R
Excellent experience. Staff is superior from front office to operating room. Dr. Howerton with Brandy , Cindy and Kat made this procedure very smooth and put me at ease with the extraction. Highly recommend this office.

I highly praise this group of oral surgeons. I have had Dr Clark on two occasions to remove most of my teeth in preparation for dentures. Dr Clark has such a great personality. He put me to sleep and when I awoke it was over! I am 67 years of age, but I am a tuff old bird! Thank You Dr Clark

Overall, the surgery went well and I haven't had any complications so far. However, the prep for the surgery in the office was kinda overwhelming for me because there were too many things happening at once. There were four different people in the room for prep, one taking my blood pressure, one putting oxygen over my nose, one putting on EKG strips, and one trying to put an IV in my arm, all at the same time. One at a time would have been much more manageable, but all at once was really overwhelming, especially for someone like me with ASD and an anxiety disorder. However, when I mentioned that I was anxious because I couldn't see the person with the IV because of the oxygen tube on my face, they removed it so I could see when they were going to insert it, which helped some. They were all very nice and helpful, but for other patients like me, maybe a slower-paced pre-surgery experience would help decrease feelings of being overwhelmed. Other than that, I had a pretty good experience, and I love the massage chairs in the waiting room.

Practice was great, sent me patient portal prework to have done so I wouldn’t have to fill out at appointment. Consultation for extraction was direct educational and to the point. Didn’t keep me for anything that wasn’t necessary. Set follow up to extraction within reasonable amount of time. Kid friendly as I brought my two kids they were very accepting and made us all feel welcome.

I had a wonderful experience here. Everyone was kind, and obviously knowledgeable for their position. I had every one of my questions answered. Dr. Kennedy listened to my concerns and reassured me that he would have my problems fixed before he was done with me. From beginning to end, I was well taken care of. I highly recommend them for any dental care needed.

Very kind and professional

Dr Howerton is an excellent OS. I had a sinus lift, bone graft and two implants placed. I experienced minimal discomfort. The final outcome was very successful. Thank you. Dr Howerton.

My husband and I were greeted by a friendly Receptionist (Rena? who was wearing purple) and taken care of by Blake & Echo. Tammi did a "purr-fect" job of giving injections & said I was relaxing well. Dr. Howerton had wonderful bed-side manners & we're glad he removed the tooth that day instead on making another trip from Toledo. He repaired a broken jaw of Steve & Jennie's son 30 years ago. We're pleased a letter from OHP said extraction was covered. He sure took good care of me!!! Thanks, Roberta

Would definitely recommend to others. Extremely courteous and professional staff. D

I am completely satisfied with the staff and services provided by these oral surgeons. Unfortunately, I needed to have a molar extracted due to an infection. Dr Kennedy was able to do this nearly painlessly, and inserted an implant so the tooth can be replaced. Dr Kennedy and the staff were very friendly and thoroughly professional. Hopefully, I won’t need them again, but wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

Dr Kennedy did tooth extraction bone graft and implant on me and it was such a comfortable process that I dread cleaning more than I ever will the work he did, my comfort was his priority and his staff was super courteous and professional overall it was honestly enjoyable even the conversation with Dr Kennedy was more like talking to a friend!! Thank you

Many thanks to Dr. Kennedy and his wonderful staff at OMS. They are very professional in each aspect of their service, from the front desk, to each clinical staff member. Every staff member went out of their way in a kind and friendly manner to make sure that I received the proper care needed for my procedures to remove a very painful fractured tooth and prepare a bone graft with resulting implant. Every step of the process was explained by Dr. Kennedy or his staff to assure that I understood, and was comfortable, with what they were going to do. Dr. Kennedy's approach instantly puts you at ease during a painful experience. During the implant procedure, Ruby was excellent all along the way. As an RN for many years, I was interested to observe the sterile technique that the staff used to prepare me for the surgical implant. It was perfect. The follow up calls, appointments and attention to the healing process of the implant by Dr. Kennedy was very reassuring. I did not have any complications. The Albany facility is immaculate with state of the art equipment. You can be assured of the highest quality dental surgery care by the OMS team.

Very nice doctors that made me feel totally comfortable and relaxed before my procedure.

I cannot say enough good things about this place! I was 2000 miles from home on vacation when one of my teeth caused me some problems. I was in excruciating pain, and I had nowhere to go for help. This company welcome to me with understanding and kindness, from the women at the front desk to Alexa and Ruby and Dr Clark. All of them had compassion on me, which is very comforting being so far from home and in so much pain. Dr. Clark was very knowledgeable and extremely careful in removing my tooth and part of my bridge. His procedure was done very quickly and smoothly, and my pain immediately went away. I will forever be grateful to Dr Clark and this company and the way they treat patients with care.
- Jacqueline D
Thank you from an old girl who has always been afraid. I am humbled by your kindness and care. Thank you

- Charity J
Excellent experience with very first implant. Care was very good and there were no problems. 10 out of 10 would do it again.
- Patrick S
I had two mesiodens taken out by Dr. Clark and his team. Before I went in I was scared, but they were really nice to me. They had lots of experience, they explained everything to me so I wouldn’t be scared, and it was easy! They even gave me a balloon (and my teeth)! Ben (10yrs old)
This was my first tooth extraction since I was 12 years old. Because it was expected to be complicated I was referred to Dr Howerton by a former patient of his. Dr suggested general anesthesia and I felt comfortable from the get go. He has a very efficient and competent surgical staff. I was totally relaxed during the intake interview and throughout the entire process. Everyone was approachable and kind. I hope I don't need him again, but would not hesitate to go if I had to, nor would I hesitate to refer anyone to the office.

The thought of a dental implant scared me to death. I have had a lot of dental work done and some of it has been painful and unpleasant. However, the staff and Dr. Hopkin immediately gave me confidence and put me at ease. There was in depth explanation about what would occur and I felt a part of the team. Dr. Hopkin has a very nice manner and also gave me a lot of confidence. Each staff member treated me with courtesy, friendliness, helpfulness and efficiency. I have recommended him and his office to many friends and will continue to do so. Thanks, Dr. Hopkin and staff in the Salem office.

I have had six children have their wisdom teeth removed over the last ten years from all three doctors. This last June, my youngest son had major jaw surgery. We were nervous about the whole procedure, but confident in the surgeon, Dr. Howerton. He has had so much experience in doing these procedures that we felt comfortable with the outcome. My son came through with flying colors and we can say that it was a resounding success. The office was very helpful with insurance issues and the assistants were all pleasant and professional. We would definitely recommend all three doctors to anyone.

I want to thank you for the outstanding care and compassion you and your staff gave to my daughter. She had a great experience considering she was petrified to have surgery. She is doing great today with no bruising, absolutely no pain and no recollection of surgery. I appreciate your professionalism as well as the follow up call last night. Many thanks.
