I've had two wisdom tooth extracted (when I was a teenager by a dentist) and that took me a while to heal. Dr. L. Douglas Israelsen extracted one bottom back tooth three years ago and I healed quick. I was awake during the procedure, I was completely numb, he was very polite, answered all my questions, talked me through the procedure and it was quickly done. I have two friends that are dentists and they've told me that a skilled surgeon's patient usually heals fast due to their great skill and technique. He knows what he's doing and he does it well.
Spend a little more money and go somewhere else where you will get treated right. This guy is a joke and he runs his office like an assembly line. Get them in and get them out. He showed very little concern for what my wife wanted to know before the procedure was done on our son and his staff kept giving my wife the run around until my son was ready to go.
You know the sign of a good doctor is when you don't have any pain afterwards...Dr. Israelsen is that doctor! I had an implant done and have had NO pain whatsoever and I am now 5 days post procedure. I was super nervous going in but the Dr. and staff put me at ease - and they got started immediately so I didn't sit there too long before I was asleep, another plus! I highly recommend Dr. Israelsen!!
Dr. Doug Israelsen is not providing the finest, top not, up to date, state of the art equipment with the best possible bed side manner and staff money can buy because he HAS to. Entirely the opposite. His 9 offices are beautiful. Oral surgery with these folks is generally only EARNED
Removed my son's wisdom teeth without waiting for him to become numb. My son was awake and absolutely miserable throughout the entire ordeal. It was a horrible experience. The doctor never came out to meet me and showed a serious lack of compassion for my son. The staff and nurse were great, Dr Israelsen was terrible!
Totally amazing experience. Daughter went in for 4 wisdom teeth to be removed. The staff was top notch. Dr. Israelsen came out to talk for a few minutes. Staff filled me in on post op procedures and had prescriptions filled out and ready to go. Daughter went back at 10:04 am and at 10:24 staff came and told me my daughter was done, that all had gone well and to pull my car alongside the curb and that they would bring my daughter out. Staff member wheeled her out and helped her get in the car and we came home. Amazing staff and service and professionalism.
