– Laurel Windsor

Dr. Haggerty and his staff are amazing. I had to have an emergency tooth extraction performed and they worked me in over their lunch break. This is the second time I have seen Dr. Haggerty, he pulled all four of my wisdom teeth which went flawlessly. I was never treated like a last minute inconvenience. Everyone was as caring and compassionate as you could ever ask for. If you need dental surgery and you do not go see Dr. Haggerty and team you are doing yourself a great injustice.

– Shane Morse

I was afraid of having a procedure because of painful experiences at other dental offices (not associated with this office). I had a cyst removed and a bone graft placed. Dr. Haggerty reassured me during the consultation and procedure that he understood my fear and concerns. The procedure was less painful than that of the other specialist and this involved stitches. I cannot say enough about how happy I am with Dr. Haggerty and his staff. This was in February and I continue to improve. Unfortunately, I’m currently dealing with an unrelated root canal. My dentist, whom I’ve seen for years and refereed to Dr. Haggerty, doesn’t seem to understand how difficult it is for me to stay numb. I’ve been in constant pain for a week. Dr. Haggerty understood this issue. Others could learn from him.

– Teresa J

I’m petrified of the dentist. These wonderful women and Dr. Haggerty made this an absolutely wonderful experience for me. From the moment you walk through the door they treat you warmly, like family. I was as comfortable as I’ve ever been in a dental office and the joy these ladies feel doing their jobs is genuine. I laughed and enjoyed myself for the hour and a half I was there. Dr. Haggerty was kind and thoughtful and caring. It was a pleasure to meet him and his entire staff. Thank you all for my best dental experience.

The procedure went very well and the doctor and staff walked me through the whole process. They made sure to let me know what all they’d be doing to me every step of the way.

“We had to call today because my husband, who is a cancer patient, was having an issue with his mouth. They told us over the phone what to do and call back if we need to see him. Then my phone rang and Dr. Haggerty was on call, he said why don’t you go ahead and bring him up to the office and I will see him so you won’t worry all weekend. Such kindness and true altruistic attitude.”

I cannot recommend them enough!”

Dr. Haggerty reviewed everything he planned to do with my tooth extraction before he started, so I knew exactly what he planned to do. Very kind and gentle doctor. Both him and his assistants gave me a chance to ask all of my questions, and reviewed everything I needed to do post operation! Would recommend to all of my family and friends!”

– Stephanie Allen

“Doctor Haggerty removed 4 impacted wisdom teeth yesterday. His office and staff are truly amazing! They scheduled my appointment very quickly which was wonderful due to the level of pain I was in. Like most people, I have very bad dental anxiety. The doctor and nurses were very calming – from the gentle tones of their voices and being thorough in explanation of steps which furthered my ease through the process. The surgery itself was very quick, and while I am sore today, I can tell the recovery process will go quickly. Plus the staff has called both myself and family a few times to check on how I have been doing through the healing process. I HIGHLY recommend Dr.Haggerty and his staff! Thank you all again for such a pleasant experience.”

I would definitely recommend Dr. Haggerty to friends and family.”

The experience I had having my four wisdom teeth removed far exceeded both mine and my wife’s expectations! As many people are, I too was considerably nervous about the procedure and anesthetics. However the professionalism, attentiveness to my needs, and and genuine passion behind Dr. Haggerty and the staff’s work was very evident throughout my entire experience. A more granular breakdown of my experience is as follows: Sense of value: 10/10 Friendliness: 10/10 Professionalism: 10/10 Comfort Experience: 10/10 Modernness of Technology: 10/10 Overall Experience: 10/10

“I just want to say that this was an excellent experience for a wisdom tooth extraction. The post procedure instruction they provided worked to perfection.”

– Dylan Wilson

My dad was a patient here first, and he spoke so highly of his experience that there was no question where my husband should go. From beginning to end, the service was exceptional. Dr. Haggerty and his team took care of my husband’s extractions with ease. Pre and post-op, they kept us informed as to what to expect and how to take care once we got home. We had an excellent experience, and should you need oral surgery, I give them my highest recommendations.

– Samantha Wheeler

Had two wisdom teeth removed a few months ago and the staff and Dr were great! The nurse made me feel comfortable and the Dr was friendly and went over everything before doing the procedure. After I woke up he personally came in to make sure I was ok and helped me to my car (which my husband drove ;)). They were all extremely nice and knowledgeable. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Relaxing and refreshing place to wait for your loved ones. Hot coffee and tea while you wait. Everyone made sure all our questions were answered. Dr had a wonderful bedside manner and even walked my daughter to the car. It is worth your drive if you are far from them. I have already recommended them to others.”

– Diane Davis

“Don’t wait until you are 30 to get your wisdom teeth out. Seriously do not.

The care at Lakewood Oral was 2nd to none. Look at all the 5 stars and you will see.

My surgery was about 4 hours with very impacted teeth. My wisdom teeth would flare up every few months and leave me in terrible pain. The after care was brutal. Because my wisdom teeth were so impacted it was very close to my nerve in my jaw. It has been almost a year and I still do not have portions of feeling back in my lip. Not sure if I ever will.

I do not know what I would have done without the constant follow ups with my Doctor. They understood the tremendous amount of pain I was in and helped me every single steo of the way during that brutal recovery.

Do not wait to get your wisdom teeth out. Do it ASAP. If they hurt, get them to cut them out because time only makes it harder. The place to go is Lakewood. Trust me, I am a fool who waited a decade too long and the results could have been so much worse.

You will be 100 percent taken care of here.”

– Adam Snell

The procedure itself took less than 1 hour, was completely painless and stress-free. I am currently following the recovery protocol and it is way better than I was anticipating, mainly due to the great work of Dr. Haggerty and his team!”

– Zach Brady

“My son, being only 7 and this being his first “real” experience, I was a little nervous. We had a great experience and would highly recommend this office. Very informative and patient!!”

– Courtney Wilson

The surgery itself was very quick, and while I am sore today, I can tell the recovery process will go quickly.”

– Jordan Leah Hale

“I have never experienced a more personal, caring staff than at Lakewood. I have a lot of anxiety with dental procedures and I was crying. I felt so embarrassed, but couldn’t help it. The doctor and assistants were very comforting and understanding. I had my upper wisdom teeth removed under general anesthesia and never had any problems. I never even had to take a single pain pill. I will be using them in the future if myself or anyone in my family needs dental surgery.”

– Kenya Ryan

“I have never been a big fan of the dentist but I had to get my wisdom teeth out. I was sent here to get this done and it changed my outlook on the dentist. They were very nice and Dr. Haggerty made it a easy process. He definitely took the stress of getting this done. Thank you very much for that.”
– Jeremy Jones

“Fantastic place to go to. Surgeons are friendly, everyone has smiles, absolutely superb experience. I would recommend anyone to go here. Even after I got my wisdom teeth pulled they were courteous and able to help me afterwards, even to the point of me coming back immediately no questions asked to make sure everything was healing well.”

– Christopher Abuhl

“Had a broken tooth that had to be pulled and a crown made. The people at Lakewood OMFS were awesome. They explained my options, and worked with me to figure out the best solution. The price was lower than I expected, and all of the procedures were completed as promised, with very little discomfort. I would highly recommend them for any oral procedures that you need.”

– Robert Stephanek

Chris and his team are amazing! Chris is very calm and always makes you feel so comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone!
