Can anyone recommend a good oral surgeon on STT? I need a wisdom tooth removed and I dont have insurance. Thanks for the help in advanced.

Donald Pomeranz was highly recommended to me and he has a good oral surgeon he recommends. His number is 775-1826

You can also try the East End Medical Center in Tutu Mall in the Food Court. Because you don't have insurance, they have a sliding fee schedule. I know someone who got a wisdom tooth pulled there and had no problems with good service.

Dr. Pomeranz , who I have used for over 30 years as my primary Dentist - and who I have great trust in - sent me to Dr. Griffith for a double extraction - it went well under the circumstances - not cheap - cash upfront - no followup - be prepared to deal with the after effects on your own and take particular care to keep it clean and heal properly.

Do you really need an oral surgeon to pull wisdom teeth? I'm pretty sure I just went to my regular dentist. Been a while, though, so maybe I just don't remember.

No follow up with Dr. Griffin? So if you have a problem, you have to pay for a complete new visit? Seems odd, and greedy, particularly since it's now inexpensive to begin with.

My experience with Dr. Griffith was great -- whole procedure mapped out start to finish, including all costs and follow-up care. He's very meticulous about his work; I'd recommend him to anyone. It's not cheap, but good dental care shouldn't be.

Juanita -- I meant I had no followup work to do and that you should pay attention to the recovery process so the healing occurs. My experience was as positive as a double extraction could be I think.
