We have been to see Dr. Shaikh three times now, twice for wisdom tooth removal and once for a broken orbital bone. I would never go anywhere else. He and the staff are super kind, efficient and helpful. I highly recommend this office!

Years ago I had a minor cosmetic surgery unrelated to dental. I interviewed 3 surgeons. I chose the one who could best explain the procedure to me. I figured if they could tell me clearly in layman’s terms what they were going to accomplish then they could have the best chance of properly performing the procedure. In 2017 I interviewed three oral surgeons for a bone graph/implant. I chose Dr. Zakir Shaikh because he seemed very confident in his ability to get the job done and he did a good job explaining to me exactly what he was going to do. It is been one month since my bone graft and so far so good! I’m looking forward to getting my implant done early in 2018. Will keep you posted! Mike

I was really nervous when I went in because it was my first time getting any type of surgery, but you guys made my first experience pleasurable. Definitely going to recommend Orofacial Waterford to friends and family that need any oral surgery. Thank you so much for everything Dr. Z. Shaikh. I’ll be sure to come back for my next extraction in January.

Great consultation experience with Dr. Shaikh and the staff. Professional, courteous and on time. They were informative and I left feeling completely aware of what to do next and what to expect. Now I'm not apprehensive about getting my tooth pulled out! Thanks

As a native of Florida, and having lived in Orlando for four years now, I needed someone to pull my wisdom teeth. My dentist recommended Orofacial & Dental Implant Surgery. The initial consultation was quick and comprehensive, the actual procedure was very quick, and my recovery time was less than I thought it would be (I was back to work the next morning). Dr. Shaikh was absolutely awesome, and I would recommend him because of his professionalism and efficiency in his practice. (And I'm one of those people who really doesn't like writing reviews)
