Ratings for Dr. Darrell Gotaas
Had my wisdom teeth out 4 weeks ago and I am feeling great! No nerve damage, never got an infection, no dry socket, recovery was smooth enough! The anesthesiologist and the nurses were all very kind to me and made sure I felt good and educated before I left. A few minor notes, I only saw Dr. Gotaas for all of 7 minutes and it was a brief conversation. I'm sure that they were trying to move along quickly but it felt a little quick. It didn't cause any problems though, I still felt very much cared for. Overall an experience I will look back on only with positivity.
Dr. Gotaas recently extracted 4 teeth of mine. I was extremely impressed with how friendly and knowledgeable he was during our consultation. I originally wanted to only remove one problem tooth, but he explained in detail the risks of not treating the others. His helpful staff worked with my insurance company and came up with a very affordable plan to have all of the work completed. I felt little to no pain following the procedure, and received multiple follow up calls to check on how I was feeling. I would highly recommend this surgeon to anyone.
I had a problematic wisdom tooth which was very close to my facial nerve and Dr. Gotaas was highly recommended by my family dentist to extract this tooth. Unfortunately, this was a procedure that came with risk of facial paralysis. I was also informed that the majority of patients attending this Clinic for wisdom tooth extraction are usually put under general anesthetic. After being informed that this was only a 20 minute procedure, I chose to not subject myself to further risk while being a 65 year old woman. While I was extremely nervous, I am so glad that I chose this route. The freezing which consisted of two needles which were uncomfortable for a few seconds, the extraction was performed very quickly and I did not have to contend with post anesthetic symptoms. I cannot say enough about the level of professionalism and the gentle manner in which Dr. Gotaas performed this extraction while I was fully awake and alert. I would highly recommend this dentist to extract any problematic tooth without anesthetic.
Two days ago I had Dr. Gotaas remove 4 wisdom teeth as well as remove some soft and hard tissue in the back of my gums. The pre-surgery consultation went very well. He was very friendly and made me feel at ease. Naturally I was asleep for the procedure. My post-surgery experience has been excellent, therefore I feel that he was extremely careful and gentle during the surgery. His staff told me that he is a perfectionist! I would recommend him to friends and family.
Got my wisdom teeth pulled 6 hours ago this morning! Absolutely amazing experience. Im laying down already eating soup and drinking gatorade, laughing and smiling watching movies. Zero complications besides a bit of pressure which is normal! I would Recommend Dr. Gotaas to anybody. He has so much knowledge and is so nice and caring. The nurses were comforting as well and very funny before they put you under. My procedure was only an hour and 10 minutes. And I came out fine! If you are thinking of getting your wisdom teeth pulled by anybody, get it done by Dr. Gotaas. I promise you wont be dissapointed
