Patient Experiences

“I had to have a tooth removed and all the staff made the experience not as scary. Everyone was so nice and helpful. They even called me that night at home to see how I was doing. I would highly recommend them!!”

“My daughter had her wisdom teeth extracted last week by Dr. Pliske and is doing great. She was very nervous and the dental assistant and Dr. Pliske made her feel very comfortable. She was in and out in no time. I highly recommend South Central Oral Surgery for all of your oral surgery needs.”

    Our office has always followed all OSHA, CDC, WHO and ADA protocols governing our health care facility. Staff have been vaccinated per protocol (hepatitis, flu) and have always been advised not to work if symptoms of illness are present.

    All instruments are sterilized after use and all treatment areas are aseptically treated and wiped down. Each night common areas (waiting rooms, hallways, business offices, patient checkout, bathrooms) are aseptically treated.

     We are now going above and beyond what is required to eradicate this COVID-19 viral pandemic by utilizing hospital-grade Ultraviolet C (UVC) light disinfection. This is not UVA or UVB light, which is known to be dangerous to our bodies/skin. The effectiveness of our UVC device has been proven through years of research in hospital environments and is the only device that is FDA approved.

    We can control our office staff and environment but cannot control patient behavior patterns before entering our office. Therefore, we obtain personal medical histories and NOW obtain travel history for 30 days in order to minimize contact per CDC/WHO recommendations.
