Can’t say enough nice things about Mission Valley Oral Surgery, from the person who made the appointment, the assistant who took us back into the room and took down all of our information, and especially Dr. Hammond.  He is the most kind, caring, and thorough dentist you will ever meet.  He spent so much time going through my husband’s complex history and was able to perform a CAT scan right in the office.  Highly recommend Dr. Hammond and his staff.

A beautiful office with amazingly helpful and kind staff all around! Would trust anyone in there to care for me or a loved one.  Would highly recommend choosing them for your oral or facial surgery needs!

Would give 10 stars if I could! This is the most professional, organized, and friendly office I have ever been to.  I wish all healthcare and dental facilities were like them.  I had 2 extractions and 2 coronectomy.  I was very nervous at first but I could tell I was in good hands as all the staff were very friendly and courteous.  During my consult, Dr. Riding explained everything to me, and spend time answering all my questions and validating my concerns.  He didn’t rush me out of the office as some Drs. do. Dr. Smith performed my surgery, and he and his staff did everything possible to make me feel comfortable and happy.  After the surgery, April took care of me in the recovery room and I had one on one uninterrupted care.  The entire process was smooth, and organized, never had to wait on hold to get someone to answer the phone.  MVOMS is a stellar facility, and should be used as an example for all other facilities to strive for.

I was terrified to have my tooth removed (by the way, I’m 67).  However, Dr. Brislin made me feel so comfortable and the nurse even asked me what type of music I would like.  Furthermore, I had NO pain whatsoever.. NONE! They gave me pain meds but I didn’t have to take ANYTHING, not even Tylenol!! Thank you to all, at this wonderfully professional and friendly practice!

I waited until three weeks after my surgery to write this, and I just had my final check up.  I had not been looking forward to having my remaining three wisdom teeth removed.  I had actually put it off for quite some time.  When push came to shove, I finally made an appointment.  I had a consultation with Dr. Hammond, who took the time to thoroughly explain how the process would go, to listen to my fears and concerns and put my mind at ease.  I was still nervous but not terrified like I was pre-consultation. When they came for my surgery, he once again reassured me that everything was going to go smoothly and painlessly, which turned out to be rue.  Everyone’s healing process is different, mine luckily went smoothly.  I appreciate having the same doctor throughout the process including during my final check up.  Once again Dr. Hammond listened to everything I had t say and addressed my concern about the gap left by my bottom wisdom tooth, it turns out it takes a little longer for the gums to fill that in, so I’m glad I asked.  No, I hope to never need oral surgery again, I will not hesitate to come here if I do ever need it!

Wonderful experience here. The staff is extremely welcoming and helpful and the doctors are amazing. I came here for a coronectomy and wisdom tooth extraction.  I had been avoiding it for years but I’m so glad I came here to do it. 10/10 would recommend!

I have been going to the Mission Valley Maxillofacial office for years.  I have consistently been treated by the absolute best, including both doctors and staff.  Everyone is friendly and helpful, and the surgical care I have received is top quality.  I would most heartily recommend this office to anyone needing their services.

Dr. Smith has done 2 implants on me. Both went perfectly.  His entire staff is courteous and professional.  I highly recommend his excellent care.

Dr. Hammond is a great doctor. He is very professional, caring and friendly. I went to his office for a wisdom tooth extraction. Both before and after the surgery, he took the time to sit down with me, listen to my concerns, and answer any questions I had.  Also, he did a great job extracting my tooth painlessly.  I highly recommend Dr. Hammond! Furthermore, a special mention to all the staff (from the front desk to the staff who took care of me before/after the surgery).  The whole team goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and cared for.
