Patient Review By Jesus E
Was first professional oral procedure and it could have not gone any better. Dr. Hummeldorf and his staff makes the process very easy and calming with their welcoming and playful attitude from the scheduling, to the waiting, and surgical procedure. Overall, my experience was super positive and would definitely recommend to anybody who needs a procedure done! And I think the marketing of Dr. Hummeldorf overall brand is the best I’ve seen in any oral surgeon, I know.

Best Dental visit ever even though I was in pain everyone was courteous and provided excellent customer service. Dr. Hummeldorf said he would call me that night to check on me and he totally did so. I was very surprised. I even received a get well card in the mail from him. Super awesome!

Dr. Hummeldorf literally saved my 16-year-old daughter Ashley’s life! When Ashley went in to get her wisdom teeth removed in Feb 2021, Dr. Hummeldorf spotted a small bump on her upper right back palate that was not there during the initial consult 3 weeks earlier. Dr. Hummeldorf performed a biopsy and also did a CT scan on his own and discovered an abnormal area between Ashley’s palate and sinus area. Unfortunately, it turned out to be salivary gland cancer, and we got Ashley in for surgery ASAP at UCSD to remove the affected area. Ashley is recovering ok now and her prognosis is good. If Dr. Hummeldorf had not spotted and acted on Ashley’s abnormality, she would still have a cancerous oral tumor continuing to grow. Thank you Dr. Hummeldorf!

Dr. Hummeldorf and his staff were very helpful and eased my nerves prior to the procedure. The office staff made it very easy to schedule appointments/follow ups and were upfront about the total cost of the surgery. They also worked with my insurance to make sure everything was covered beforehand. The surgery itself was very quick and went well (I had all four wisdom teeth removed). I had no problems during recovery. Would definitely recommend.

Patient Review By Dan G
I was referred by a friend who, over the years, has had 2 very successful implants done by Dr Hummeldorf. I just had an EXCELLENT 2nd opinion- where Dr H took great care and ample time to Explain why I should NOT have an implant done! Thank goodness I cancelled my previous appt with the Dr my dentist wanted me to see— already scheduling me to have my tooth extracted!!! (And my dentist would make the revenue from the Unnecessary implant!) There is a reason that many dentists list NOTHING about their education, training and experience in their websites.. beware. Look into qualifications— as you would any physician. Dr. H has a long list of education, certifications, accomplishments, AND recognized expertise— as a Instructor of Dentistry. He’s honest, and highly skilled— and PUTS HIS PATIENTS FIRST! Thank you Dr. Hummeldorf!

Patient Review By Kimberly P
The amount of nerves I had going into such a lengthy and involved process, was immense. I cannot thank Dr. Hummeldorf enough for being patient, understanding, and easy to get ahold of if I had any questions during this two-year journey. The staff are overly welcoming and very accomodating with my schedule while I'm still in school. Overall, I'm overjoyed with the end result!
