I was a bit nervous about having all 4 wisdom teeth removed, plus a couple of torn from my lower jawbone, especially since so many people told me their stories of pain and being out of commission for several days. I didn't have to worry at all! Dr. Shaikh and the staff took good care of me, and I was back working the very next day. No pain, and barely any swelling. I highly recommend their practice. Thank you.

Everyone was nice, Dr. Shaikh is the best! We were so nervous about getting our daughters wisdom teeth removed. It was so easy.

My experience was amazing. Dr. Shaikh was knowledgeable and very welcoming. The procedure was very quick and seamless. I’m on day 2, after 4 tooth extractions with minimal pain and swelling.

My 7 year old child was seen today at Orofacial & Dental Implant Surgery for Oral surgery. All my fears were put to ease by the helpful staff and doctor. It can be nerve racking knowing that your child will be put under general anesthesia, but the staff took all the necessary precautions and seemed the best of their field. I personally believe that you get what you pay for, so when I came to this office, I did not come for a discount, I came for quality. They completely delivered with above and beyond skills and hospitality. I would recommend the Waterford Lakes location and Dr. Shaikh and his team for your next procedure.

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
