Came in to have a back molar removed and the staff and Dr Matt are all excellent, amazing people. I didn't get my assistant's name but she went over all my post op procedures and answered my questions. The procedure its self was painless and quick! Dr Matt always checked on me during to make sure I was ok and called that evening to make sure I was recovering well. Very thoughtful, genuine, caring staff! Oral surgery is not fun, but this office will do everything to make it a smooth experience! Thanks Dr Matt and staff!!

I have been meaning to get this darn tooth pulled for 2 YEARS NOW. The bonus of being a total procrastinator is that I got to interview 4 different oral surgeons. Dr. Mynsberge was the 4th surgeon I spoke with and totally made me feel comfortable enough to finally bite the bullet! I am so glad I went with Dr. M! I not only needed the tooth pulled but also a bone graft. I was in and out in 45 minutes, which felt crazy fast considering how gentle and patient her was at getting the tooth out. He "stretched" the tooth out, instead of yanking it out. I don't know if oral surgery could possible feel any less painful. The rest of the staff is super nice and professional as well, my husband even made a comment about how nice everyone was to him when he came to pick me up. I will be going back to Dr. M when I need to get my implant.... and I wont put it off for years, now that I know I don't need to be so scared 🙂 Thanks Doc!

I had to have an abscessed tooth pulled. Not fun, but what a wonderful experience it ended up being. I have always had a fear of dentistry, plus having a very bad experience recently. Dr. Mynsberge and his staff really make you feel like they care. Each bed has it's own widescreen TV the Dr. can show you Xrays and 3D scans on to explain what is going on, then during the procedure the Dr. logs into his own Netflix account so you can choose what you want to watch! I can't say enough. I have no insurance and they offered an easy payment plan, and he prescribed me the more affordable antibiotics since I was on a budget. After each visit the doctor personally called me to see how I was doing. I cannot say enough about these guys.

Two days ago Dr. Mynesberge performed an emergency extraction: my lower 2d molar had cracked deeply. I wish every doctor were as careful and meticulous in his/her practice. Although I couldn't have made an appt, Dr, Mynesberge spent time conferring with my dentist and oral surgeon, collaborating in the decision to extract (vs. save the tooth...for awhile,) His manner was confident yet very empathetic. Many doctors condescend, acting like benevolent patricians. Dr. Mynesberge was perfect: he assumed I was intelligent and explained the procedure thoughtfully and efficiently. Regarding the extraction, Dr. Mynesberge is nothing short of gifted. I felt like a partner. He picked up my discomfort immediately and made adjustments. I felt absolutely confident I had the best. I thought he should be teaching residents but I'm glad he chose private practice. I must note, his staff is superb. Sorry I've forgotten his assistant's name but helping in the room, she was a brilliant translator when my mouth was stuffed. She concisely, effectively communicated follow up care instructions, taking the time to call prescriptions in to a new pharmacy. I can't recommend Dr. Mynesberge highly enough.
