"Great office! I got my wisdom teeth extracted here & go for my cleanings regularly. Oral surgeon was very informative of the procedure and helped me make an educated decision on what route to go. No bruising, no swelling, and got all four removed in less than 30 minutes!!"- A.S. / Yelp / Sep 03, 2018

"Took my son to get all of his wisdom teeth extracted. The entire staff from the reception area to the dental & surgical assistants were extremely warm, helpful & knowledgeable. One even offered my son a snack when they found out he had fasted that morning & didn't need to! He got pizza & it impressed me that they would be concerned enough to squeeze in a "last meal" for him knowing he'd be on soft foods for awhile post-procedure so that he wouldn't miss out! Dr. Alalawi was great! They offer very affordable rates and the level of care is excellent. I will be returning to this office for any future care."- L.C. / Google / Jul 14, 2018
What to Expect
Our dentists will make molds of the patient's lower and upper teeth and take oral X-rays, which will be taken to a dental lab near DentalWorks - Crystal Lake.
