Patient Review By Jamie M

This was my first tooth pull and implant so rather nervous. My experience throughout the whole experience was very positive. The staff are super friendly and everyone is very knowledgeable and tentative. Strongly recommend and would definitely come back if needed.

Patient Review By George B

Dr. Hummeldorf and staff were incredibly professional. They were all very pleasant and made me feel very comfortable. I would recommend. I also received a call the night of my procedure from the Dr asking how I was doing. This was very comforting to me. I know I made the right choice,

I don’t really know where to start. The ENTIRE staff, from the administrative staff welcoming you into the office to the support staff assisting Dr. Hummeldorf in my dental implant procedure to Dr. Hummeldorf himself, is AMAZING! Dr. Hummeldorf’s office is truly the GOLD standard when it comes to oral surgery. Many thanks for taking such very good care of my teeth.

Patient Review By Krista P

I’m very dental-procedure anxious. I needed 4 extractions and 2 bone grafts. I was super nervous about my appointment… but the staff and Dr Hummeldorf quickly got to work. I woke up about an hour later and was all done. I expected pain and was prepared to take the pain medicine. However i experienced no pain, no swelling, no bruising, just a little bleeding. The days after were completely pain free too. (I know, i was surprised too!) I would give that experience a 10/10. (The suture removal, 3 weeks later) was very fast and hurt a tiny bit for a few mins). Overall this was my best dental experience I’ve had. I’m so thankful for Dr. H and his team for helping me through it all.

Patient Review By Carolyn L

While I was excited to finally have my tori removed, I was a little nervous about the procedure. Dr. Hummeldorf and his staff were wonderful. The doctor was very thorough in explaining everything and addressing my questions. Although a difficult removal, all went well. I really appreciate Dr. Hummeldorf calling to check on me. Everyone was very supportive and kind. Thank you so much!

Patient Review By Irina Dorfman

Dr. Kurt Hummeldorf is a gem! In today's world of commercialized medicine, true personal attention and genuine care for a patient's well-being are becoming a rarity. But Doctor is a fortunate exception. He is a talented and experienced doctor and a true specialist in his field! No less importantly, he truly does all in his power to help his patients. He is superbly attentive and caring. I am profoundly grateful for his care and for figuring out a course of treatment that made sense in light of my medical condition and personal circumstances. Thank you! Irina Dorfman

Patient Review By Sil S

I was referred to Dr. K Hummeldorf by my primary dentist for 4 wisdom teeth extractions. I was extremely nervous, hence the YouTube videos I’ve watched prior to my surgery. I anticipated a lot of pain and discomfort but to my surprise, the actual procedure was not even a fraction what I expected, no lingering discomfort nor pain. The staff is highly profesional and friendly and it reflects on the doctor. I am very pleased with my experience 🙂
