Dr. Edward L. Lechtenberg's Ratings
I tried three oral surgeons before I found this highly skilled and compassionate person. He was very empowering. He gave me a choice between no sedation, IV Valium, and Brevital Sodium. The procedure was conducted perfectly--no bone spurs, dry socket, or other nasty complications. He prescribed plenty of pain medicine (Percocet) and even gave me some advice on how to take it: "Don't let the pain build up on you--take the pills as soon as you feel pain." Neither did I have any damage to any facial nerves, though Dr. Lechtenberg was careful to say that was a possibility. This surgeon made what is an awful experience for many people really quite tolerable. A+!
