I got my wisdom tooth taken out here - I was a little nervous, but Dr. Gocke extracted it so fast that before I had time to be nervous it was over! After the numbing shot wore off 4-6 hours later, I was surprised to find that I felt no pain in the next few days where the tooth was extracted. Will be coming again.
Went in for a consultation to get a tooth removed since it was cracked. Dr. Gocke was able to get it done within the same visit. Everybody there is super nice and kept me informed the whole way through. Highly recommend Dr. Gocke and his team
I tend to have a lot of anxiety when I walk into Drs offices. However, Dr. Gocke is so calm and collected, he made me feel very comfortable in making the decision to go into surgery for my wisdom teeth removals. The day of my surgery the front desk rep was so kind and supportive I had no second thoughts in turning back. Kylie is Amazing!! She answered all my post op questions with no hesitations. I have been recommending this practice to all my family & friends!!
Early Examination = A Healthy Future
There is a “window of opportunity” while wisdom teeth are new and the root systems not fully developed when the teeth are easiest to remove and will have the fewest complications. The longer you wait, the greater the risks of complications. We recommend that an evaluation at age 16 to check on root development and the likelihood of impaction.
