Our Latest Patient Testimonial

Dr. Paxman and the staff were very kind and professional. My wisdom teeth extraction went by like a breeze — I felt so comfortable going into and coming back out of it that I was like, "Hey, that was great. Let's do that again!" In the recovery area, one of the nurses and I went over what the recovery process was like and answered any questions I may have had. They provided me with a tropical smoothie, a take-home kit that proved very useful, and a set of clear instructions that left me feeling confident in my recovery. The next day, they even called to check in on how I was doing. Any discomfort or inflammation I felt over the next several days was minimal and easy to manage. Overall, I felt incredibly well taken care of throughout my first surgical experience. Thanks Janice, Tabitha, Lauren, and Dr. Paxman!

I was treated so well by the staff and Dr. Paxman. Everyone was friendly and professional. I have complete confidence in Dr. Paxman and all. I really appreciated the delish smoothie I was given when leaving the office. They even provided a Lipton tea bag to take home. Thank you all for the wonderful treatment and your professionalism.

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Jeffrey Paxman and his amazing staff at the Redlands office. My initial consult and my tooth extractions were completed in a most timely fashion. All staff are extremely professional and personable. They explained the process with great clarity. I had my tooth extracted today. The process was comfortable, efficient, and extremely caring. A fruit smoothy before leaving was a most wonderful surprise!!!! If all dental offices were this comfortable I would have gone more often. Many thanks to ALL of you!!!
