Our staff here at Simply Wisdom Teeth is devoted to you as the patient! When you walk in the door you will have an experienced staff member walk you through the entire procedure. We have a Licensed General Dentist, a Anesthesiologist and a Nurse on staff to provide the best possible care we can. Before we take you back for surgery we will go over the entire procedure with you and answer any questions that you have. Our goal is to make your surgery as comfortable as possible.

At Simply Wisdom Teeth we work only with highly trained Anesthetists. We have a great team of highly skilled professionals. You will be sedated by either an MD, Anesthesiologist, or a CRNA, Certified Nurse Anesthetist. All of the anesthetists that we work with are below. If you prefer to be sedated by an Anesthesiologist as opposed to a CRNA please let our staff know and we will gladly accommodate that request. Below is a Biography of our Dentist and Nurse Anesthetist on staff as well as our other staff members!
