Was in today for a much needed extraction. I arrived in allot of pain and in really bad shape. Dr Pack and his team to care of it quickly. They were all very respectful and kind concerning the shape I was and waiting so long to get this taken care of. I’ll be returning next month to start a plan to get my oral hygiene in check.
