Patient Experiences

The staff are very helpful and friendly. Dr Howell was so nice and kept reassuring me I was doing well during the whole procedure. Dr. Howell himself called me that same evening to see how I was doing. I have never had another Dr. call to check up himself and I thought that was a very kind gesture and I appreciated it. I recommend South Central Oral Surgery to everyone I know… I felt like a person and not just a number, a little kindness sure goes a long way. If you want a professional and thorough dentist you want to call South Central Oral Surgery and get the job done right.

I can’t say enough about these doctors and this staff. As a dental assistant for many years, I knew which office I wanted my son to see. Dr. Pliske did his extractions. He was extremely professional and completely trusted. My son has leukemia. He had some complications with clotting and healing because of this… The level of care, and peace of mind that came with it, is worth more than I can express with words.

I admit I was apprehensive having my wisdom teeth removed. I was surprised and pleased that my actual experience was did not mirror my concern. Dr. Howell and his staff were professional and caring. Everything was explained well and my options presented. Dr. Howell personally followed up me after the procedure and during the healing process. I lost some bone from a neighboring tooth from my procrastination in addressing what needed to be done. He was able to provide a treatment to encourage new bone growth in the area and it worked! I would highly recommend this group!
