Wonderful team and staff here!
From start to finish, everyone at Lehigh Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery was amazing and helpful. I just got my wisdom teeth out and had never had any other surgery before so my anxiety was through the roof. Each one of the staff made me feel comfortable and right at home, even up to the music playing before I went under. I can't thank them enough for answering all of my questions and a follow up phone call to make sure everything is still ok. Thank you! Highly recommend Dr. Bender as well. Straight to the point and tells you like it is. Wonderful team and staff here!

Lehigh Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is the absolute best. I had a great experience getting my wisdom teeth removed. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and welcoming. They took care of all the paperwork I needed for work and communicated with my insurance company flawlessly. Alyssa, Yaya, Taylor, Carmen, Hailey, and Dr. Wolf made surgery day a piece of cake. The girls were all so sweet. Dr. wolf called me a few hours post op which I really appreciated.

Dr. Kakar and staff were excellent. My son needed 3 baby teeth removed and while it was routine to them, my son was very anxious. They took the time to talk to him and explain everything to him so he understood what was happening and put him at ease. Carmen, who was his recovery RN, was wonderful to him and had him laughing as he left. Thank you for such great care and for going above and beyond.

Dr. Johri and his staff were amazing with my son. They got him back on time and everything went so smoothly. Directions before the surgery and after the surgery were so clear. Carmen did wonderful helping in recovery and making sure my son was comfortable. If we ever need oral surgery again, I'd definitely go back to LOMS!!
