Our Testimonials

My Son had his wisdom teeth out six days ago and so far, I cannot say enough great things about Dr Haggarty and his Assistants! Every single person we have interacted with thus far has been phenomenal (which isn’t always what you get at Doctors Offices) – they all – from phones, to front desk, to assistants – all so warm/friendly, competent, helpful, and just so good to my son and our Family. I was a nervous Mama to the excess and each of those who spoke with us or cared for our Son went out of their way to give us the very best attention. We felt like the procedure went as smoothly as it could have and we received phone calls to check in on us afterwards. Madison also really took the time to talk with me following the surgery when questions arose. She also had such a great rapport with my College Kid so I think that also really put him at ease. We really are so pleased with the care and professionalism our Son got at this Surgery Center! Dr Haggarty even walked us out! They’ve got a good thing going at that Clinic! They know how to treat their Patients!

I’ve taken my granddaughters there several times. Some needed baby teeth pulled for braces and 2 had wisdom teeth removed. Dr Haggerty and the rest of the staff were wonderful every time. I would highly recommend them!

– Terri Swartwood

Everyone in the clinic was amazing. They were all very friendly and took the time to keep me well informed during my family member’s procedure. They were also kind and patient with us. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

– Alexis S.

Had a wisdom tooth pulled yesterday. Everyone was extremely nice. I waited longer than the actual procedure. Procedure took like 5 min. When told they were done I didn’t believe them. Everything was great.

– Hunter Solomon

I had my wisdom teeth removed with local anesthesia, the procedure was quick and fairly painless. The staff was very kind and personable.

– Mikki Kimbrell

My son had his 4 wisdom teeth pulled. The team at LOMS were exceptionally friendly. Our overall experience was fantastic! I would highly recommend them. Even the doctor walked us to the car after surgery!

– Casie Davidson

This may end up being a lengthy review, however I think everyone should be aware of this outstanding practice in every aspect.

I am petrified of anything having do with dentistry. When I was told by my dentist I would have to have all four of my impacted wisdom teeth removed by an oral surgeon, I was horrified. I did a random google search and came across Dr. Haggerty. I saw great reviews and called the same day I discovered them in my search. They were extremely accommodating, seeing as how I live an hour away. They were so friendly even on the phone, I felt somewhat at ease about the whole situation. The day of the procedure, I was a nervous wreck. Keep in mind I had NOT been to the office at this point, I did my consultation and procedure in one day. The front office staff were very nice, got me checked in promptly and I was called back right on the dot of my appointment time. Amber called me back and had me do my X-Rays, and she could tell I was nervous. She instantly made me feel better. She walked me through EVERYTHING and made sure I knew what was going on. Dr. Haggerty came in and was the nicest man. He explained what was going on with my wisdom teeth and why taking them out would be the better option. It was at this point that I felt completely safe. I am not the biggest fan of being put under but they all made me confident I was in good hands. When I came to, I vaguely remember Amber talking with my husband and my mom, apparently I was giggling after ever bit of instruction Amber gave (sorry about that) and once she was through, the nurses AND the doctor walked me out to the car and buckled me in. My main point here, is that if you have dental anxiety and are on the fence on who to entrust with your oral surgery needs, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Haggerty and his team. They are the sweetest people and really take care of you. This practice is excellent and I am so grateful that I found them! My mom (who lives 3 hours away) was so impressed with how they handled my appointment she even says she would come here for any oral surgery!


– Andrea D.

I had a tooth pulled at Dr Haggerty’s office and it was such a great experience! Everything from the front desk, to the assistants, to the Doctor exceeded my expectations. The facility is gorgeous as well. During the procedure Dr. Haggerty was so reassuring and made me feel very comfortable the entire time. I would recommend this office to anyone needing any type of oral surgery!

– Kathryn Minturn

Wonderful Surgeon. Very Caring.

– Marlene Slominski

Dr. Hagerty did an excellent job with my wisdom teeth extraction; I didn’t even need a Tylenol. This was quite a bit different than my first two wisdom teeth extractions, which had occurred 20 years earlier, and at which point I refused to let anyone extract any more teeth. It turns out that that it isn’t so bad if one has a good surgeon. Pick this one.

– John Delich

Staff and doctor had their eye on the ball from walking in the door to leaving. Each step was explained through the process, taking the stress out of having oral surgery.

– Cathy Engle

This place is AMAZING! Every single person on staff here is so kind, patient, and caring. My wisdom teeth removal went so smoothly and quickly that I was surprised to be leaving so soon! Dr Haggerty is a true professional.. he really took his time making sure this pregnant mama was comfortable!

– RaShod  Parsons

Staff was very helpful with any concerns I had and they made me feel very comfortable the entire time I was there. Also I appreciated how they checked up on me after the procedure.

– Aspen Sinclair Gates

From the minute you walk in the office door you are greeted by positive, caring, compassionate people. The office atmosphere could not have been more welcoming. Dr. Haggerty is an excellent communicator to his patient and he is respectful of his team. The teamwork was remarkable. I would give my experience a 5 star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️plus

– Linda Broyles

Very nice facility, nice staff, helpful nurses and great doctor. I would recommend them to anyone!!

– Andrew Martin

Wonderful office, staff, and Doctor. Called 2 times to check on my son. My daughter was also a patient and had a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.

– Tracy Bivins

I had a wisdom tooth extracted three days ago. I’m an older patient and have heard all my life that such extractions can be miserable, so I was prepared for an ordeal. However, I don’t think it could have been an easier experience! The actual extraction took less than five minutes. Except for a little pressure, there was no discomfort at all. I had just a local anesthetic, and have only taken Advil (for the swelling) in the past three days since the procedure. I’ve had almost no pain at all and the area is healing very well. Dr. Haggerty and his staff are the best–kind, professional, and caring. I highly recommend this office!

– Judi King

From start to finish it was a very pleasant experience. I was very nervous about having teeth pulled and having an implant done to replace one of the teeth. They are very professional and at the same time very compassionate! I would recommend this practice to anyone. If I am ever in need to this type of service again, this will be the place I go!

– Becky Beatty

Great experience, explained everything thoroughly, felt well taken care of.

– Monika B.

This place is fantastic. Extremely organized and customer friendly. Dr. Haggerty makes everything easy and was more than willing to listen and respond to my many questions. I couldn’t be happier with my experience in using this office and will do so again when I need more work done.

– Steven Twombly

Procedures were explained very well and executed flawlessly. I will definitely be returning if I’m ever in need of more dental work.

– David Amaro

Dr. Haggerty and his staff were amazing today! I had a tooth pulled and I was honestly very nervous about it, but they put me at ease. The assistants were all great and Dr. Haggerty talked to me during the entire procedure and let me know what was happening and reassured me that I was doing great. I highly recommend this office for any oral surgery needs!

– Hailey Terrazas

Going to the dentist just got easier, with Dr. Haggerty and his terrific staff . professional, courteous and caring they take the fear and loathing out of going to the dentist.

– Mark A. Kimball

Wisdom teeth being taken out is never fun but it wasn’t scary and we had no issues! Staff called to check in a couple of times and took the time to answer all questions. Highly recommend.

– Heidi Gutru Newlon

Dr Haggerty was a perfect fit for my daughter. He is soft spoken and calming to an anxious patient. He did a great job removing my daughters wisdom teeth with no complications.

– Reba Jaynes

I had a very positive experience with Dr. Haggerty, given that I was there to get my wisdom teeth extracted. Hailey at the front desk walked me through the paperwork. Kelsi did my prep and was very kind and made sure I was constantly aware of what was going on. Dr. Haggerty came and met with me prior to the procedure to introduce himself and reassure me that the outlook was good. Once the doctor and nurses returned for the procedure, I got the general anesthetic and next thing I knew we were done. A couple of the nurses helped me out to my ride and the deed was done. All that is to say that Dr. Haggerty and his staff were incredibly cordial and professional and made a scary experience much less painful than I thought it would be.

– Daniel Lance

A+ Very professional ,pleased with the experience.

– Joseph Danner

I had my wisdom teeth removed yesterday and it was a really great experience even doing something like that. They were extremely friendly I loved everyone there and they did a wonderful job. The place was extremely clean and well taken care of very updated.

Most likely some of the nicest staff I have had for any procedure both medical and dental. They were very transparent about the procedure and answered any and all questions I had. They were awesome.

– Aaron Swanner

Very professional and efficient. Very clean facility.

– Rachael Branson

They were all so pleasant and explained every detail. Made a not so fun experience the best it could possibly be. They were exceptionally comforting from start to finish. Dr. Haggerty explained every little detail of exactly what would take place and what he was planning to do. The office staff called to check on me the afternoon of my procedure and the morning following.

– Teresa Lamaster

The staff at Lakewood is fantastic. They explained everything to us in detail and called to check on my daughter after she had her wisdom teeth out 2 days in a row.

– Tammy Atkins

Love, Love, Love Dr. Haggerty and his amazing staff. From the time I walked in the door until I left…super amazing staff. Dr. Haggerty explained everything so wonderful. Words is not enough to tell you what a wonderful experience I had with this amazing office.

– Patricia Ward

I had a great experience. Staff was friendly and informative. And the procedure was quick. Filling out the paperwork took a little longer then I cared for but I was a new customer. They should make a lot of that stuff available via internet so it can be filled in prior to getting there. Especially with the advances in eSignatures.

– Jonathan Roman

The office was very clean and the staff was top notch. Felt like they went above and beyond to make sure it was a successful procedure for my son. Would definitely recommend.

– William Eggleston

I had 2 wisdom teeth removed and they were able to get me in right away. The office is very clean and beautiful. The staff is also very friendly and nurse amber was very good about keeping me calm durning the process. Dr. Haggerty was kind and patient with me. Would highly recommend him! The staff has been excellent about calling me after the surgery to check on me and see if I have any questions.

– Elle Trumble

I had a great experience with Dr. Haggerty and his staff! They all took the time to explain every detail regarding my procedure, they are also the most compassionate group of people I’ve ever met. I had two teeth extracted, bone graph done, then lastly two implants put in. It was a long process, but I feel confident I’ll be happy with the end results. I would highly recommend Dr. Haggerty at Lakewood Oral and Maxillofacial to anyone.

– Nancy Struewe Hall

Got all 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted this morning and my recovery has been amazing! Dr. Haggerty and his staff were amazing. They explained the procedure in great detail to the point that I felt completely prepared. I was in and out within an hour and a half. Would definitely recommend Lakewood Oral and Maxillofacial for anyone who is looking for a similar procedure!

– Breeanna Marie

The workers are very nice here and very understanding about my concerns. They took note of my anxiety and hearing impairment and worked around it to make me feel comfortable. Would recommend this place to anyone.

– KT Baker

Wonderful as usual…my family have been clients since 2011.

– Grace follows me

I was recently seen at the Lakewood Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery office to get my wisdom teeth removed. The day of the surgery left me very impressed with not only the doctor himself, but also the comforting and clean office atmosphere, front office staff, nurses, assistants, and everyone else in the building that were immediately welcoming to me and every patient they had on this early Friday morning. The procedure itself went very smoothly, and afterwards I was taken into the recovery room where all post-op care was discussed with myself and my driver. I felt comfortable calling the office afterwards and asking to speak to one of the nurses regarding post-op care and instructions and knew that if there had been any problems that they would have been addressed and taken care of appropriately. I would urge anyone who has even the slightest concern or anxiety over an oral procedure to go see Dr. Haggerty and his team.

– Brittany Hayes

It was a very good experience. The office was very clean and everyone was very friendly. I got in quickly and was taken care if very efficiently. A very good experience and would highly recommend this office.

– Kathy Frerking

Prompt service, pleasant professional and caring staff. Pleasant and comfortable facilities. Painless extraction!!!

– John Dow

I was very surprised by the genuine help of the receptionist. I did not have insurance but they were very helpful in providing me with the care credit option and I was approved! Scheduled an appointment and they got me in immediately. Once I was there the staff was exceptionally nice, and Dr. Haggerty did a great job reassuring me I would be just fine! Wonderful experience.


Chris Haggerty is a great Dentist. So professional and so polite. Oh did I mention his staff is wonderful. And yes he just pulled my tooth and did an awesome job. Thanks to him for being kind and caring.

Very nice staff. They were professional & attentive throughout my entire procedure. Dr. Haggerty is an excellent Oral Surgeon & I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

Debbie Thompson

For what I had to have done, it was a great experience. I was made to feel that the staff was truly concerned about my comfort. I will return to Lakewood Oral office if I need this service again in the future.

Terri Martin

Had my wisdom teeth pulled on Friday, and the service was great. From scheduling the initial appointment to being called with an update of my expected out of pocket cost, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience in planning my wisdom tooth extraction. Every step of the surgery was explained to me thoroughly to make sure I was comfortable. I was provided guidelines for the days following the procedure and received calls to check up on my progress and to see if I had any questions. It was a great experience, which can’t be said often of teeth extractions, and I will choose this office in the future!

Sudie McCaslin

Very kind and informative, didn’t rush through anything and made sure I understood everything about my procedure.

Rebekah Ryan

Very nice office with nice people

Briana Robinson

What an amazing and compassionate group of people. I was so impressed with their staff, that I brought my daughter and mother to their office for services. Thank you Dr. Haggerty and team!! Michelle Angotti

Joe Angotti

Dr. Haggerty was amazing, very calming and even helped me to the car after the procedure. Loved the entire staff. Will recommend to others.

Malissa Gallup

Very professional staff. My son had four wisdom teeth removed and the procedure was quick and completed with very little discomfort. This was not the first experience with Dr. Haggerty. My son had reconstructive surgery for an orbital blowout 5 years prior. Great to see that he is close to where we live now! Thank you Dr. Haggerty and staff!

– Joshua Buehre

I had a tooth removed and my son had all four of his wisdom teeth removed in June 2018. We were both very pleased with all of the staff at Lakewood. Dr. Haggerty is very competent and has a professional yet caring demeanor. I highly recommend their services.

– Yvonne Galusha

My daughter had all four wisdom teeth removed. The staff took the time to discuss everything with us and make sure we understood the process and the follow up. My daughter did have some follow up that needed to be completed due to dry socket and pain. Again, the staff was great in taking care of my daughter and ensuring a good outcome. We had some concerns about one staff member being too aggressive. Kelly, the office manager quickly addressed our concerns and informed staff and physician about outcomes and the process. We could not have been more impressed with the extra care and attention the staff took to ensure a good outcome. We would recommend this office to all our family and friends.

– Caroline Hammond

I highly recommend Dr. Haggerty and his staff!

– Bridget Honeycutt

Dr Haggerty and his staff are totally amazing! Great experience all around! My daughter had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled on the same day and did not have any issues at all. They called several times to check on her and that’s not something you get nowadays!

– Rob Behler

Dr. Haggerty and his staff are top notch. I’ve had to have some rather unpleasant work done and I’ve felt no pain. His manner is gentle and always takes the patients well being into account first and foremost. If you are trying to make a decision based on these reviews, look no further. I highly recommend Dr. Haggerty and his facilities !!!

– Craig Yancey

I want to give a shout-out to Dr Haggerty for today’s procedure. I was here 4- years ago to get 5- lower jaw implants. Here in the last two weeks , one implant came loose and infected. Called for an appt. Got one the following Friday, TODAY 04/25/2018. I was in MISERY, could NOT wear my dentures, pain, pain, and more pain.!!!!!!! Liquid food / could NOT chew anything. Came in this afternoon , got deadened an hour later the Dr. Haggerty was Unscrewing the implant, less than 5 minutes, done. I hate any kind of a needle with a passion !!!! Major stress for me, Dr. Haggerty took care of my stress, calmed my nerves w/ his assistant, could NOT ask for a better surgeon . I just want to say THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your expertise , re-assurance and taking care of business. No one needs to go any where else, this is the place for your surgical needs. AWESOME chair-side comforting !!!!!!!!!!!!!!Thank YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

– J.B.

Fantastic doctor and very patient. Thanks for everything!

– 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.

– Kurt Franta

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. I’m not sure if the doctor is the one managing this place, but whoever is, is doing a great job! It was a good experience for me definitely ☺️”

– Katherine Henshaw

Then again today!”

– Kristy Amen

“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.”

– Tanya Lobb

“I went in to have a tooth extracted and the staff and Dr Haggerty were extremely patient with me and all my concerns. He didn’t dare start any procedure without me fully understanding all my options as well as what was about to be done. Dr Haggerty’s bedside manner was amazing and his work was very fast but yet extremely thorough. I would highly recommend this office.”
– Latonya Smith

“Dr. Haggerty was extremely clear and concise on what would happen in the surgery. He walked me through the whole process in plain English, and answered any and all questions. The staff was very friendly and worked like a team on getting the process done as quickly as possible. When they administered the anesthesia, I was out of is and woke up in what felt like a few seconds to the same group of friendly people making sure my recovery went as well as possible. I cannot recommend them enough!”

– Jon Eaten

“This is the 2nd time I have been here to have children’s wisdom teeth removed. Great Staff, Great Doctor, Great Experience. Very friendly when we arrived, didn’t wait more than 5-10 minutes, they explained everything in full detail, offered me drinks while I waited for my son. Perfect example of great medical care! Defiantly would recommend this place!”

– Peggy Renfrow

“Really can’t say enough good about Dr Haggerty and his staff. Always very professional. Always on time. Dr Haggerty and his team took care of my implant.

– Sherri Matchell

“Had a wonderful experience today at Lakewood Oral! Dr. Haggerty and his assistants were very professional, and quick with my procedure. 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!”

– Morgan Mengel

“Wonderful staff and very patient and kind doctor. Worked us in quickly and very professional. I have already recommended to many friends”

– Dori Luzum

“Our 15 yr old daughter’s wisdom teeth were removed today by Dr. Haggerty. Needless to say, she was frightened and nervous. The treatment received by Dr. Haggerty and his team was exceptional! The first thing she said in the post op room was how nice they were to her. Job well done!”

– 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.”

– Denise Shockey

“I had a wonderful experience here last week. I was extremely nervous about having my wisdom teeth extracted, and Dr. Haggerty and his staff made me feel very comfortable.

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

– Amber Deets

“I went in very concerned after having a bad experience with my son’s wisdom teeth at a different practice. But just walking into the office felt different. Very friendly and professional. Dr. Haggerty was very informative and caring which put myself and my daughter at ease. Then when we got home the two calls were a great touch. I have already referred this practice to several friends with teens that need teeth pulled. Great experience.”

– Darla Zimmerman

So professional, kind and caring in the process of removing my son’s wisdom teeth. What a great team! Thank you so much!

– Julie Mewes

All around professional starting with my call to them. Everyone was very nice, concerned and always wanting to make sure you were comfortable with every step to include the surgery. Entire facility was immaculate. Dr. Hagerty and his entire staff was very humble, caring, professional and made you feel welcomed and comfortable. This is by far the best experience I have ever had in my life. Thanks for a great experience and meeting all my needs no matter how big or small the needs were. Respectfully,

– Cody Bloom

My 93 year old Mother who is confined to a wheelchair Nd has Alzheimer’s needed a wisdom tooth removed. The care and compassion by the entire staff was amazing and made my Mother very comfortable and secure that everything would be fine. She can out of surgery smiling and comfortable. I cant say enough about the entire staff. Bless you all. Posted for Caroline Maxine Detillier

– Paulette Detillier

Best extraction ever! I know that sounds crazy, but Dr H. is very good at what he does. Since none of us goes to an oral surgeon for the fun of it, we might as well go to one who is well trained and kind hearted.

Dr H gave me the 3D tour of my tooth and explained my options in detail. He and his assistants made sure I was comfortable throughout the proceedure and called the next morning to ensure all was well.

The wound is healing nicely and I’m totally pain free. I really couldn’t ask for a better experience.

– Cynthia Coer Butcher

The staff and Dr. Haggerty were very friendly and helpful. It was nice having follow up calls to check on my son after his procedure. From start to finish we felt very comfortable and well taken care of.

– Tammy Hicks Warson

AMAZING! Definitely would recommend! NURSES are a WOW! They treat you like you are the only patient in the building! Dr Haggerty went into detail on my daughters procedure. She was one of 8 patient having her wisdom teeth removed that day, and took all the time we needed. They called for 2 days after the surgery, and made us feel very appreciated. They care about their patients! Thank you to Dr Haggerty and all the staff!

– Stephanie Kane Parrish

Service was wonderful. Staff kind and compassionate. Very thorough explaining every step of the process. Doctor Haggerty conducted the procedure. Highly recommend him and his staff!

– Kimberly Kruse

Dr. Haggerty was super nice and very informative on the whole procedure of getting all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. Morgan was his assistant and she was super nice as well. I was super nervous about the whole thing and they managed to calm me down a little bit. Very helpful and nice staff. My face was only swollen a little bit for the 2-3 days after the procedure. It isn’t swollen anymore and it’s only been 4 days since I got them removed. 10/10 would recommend.

My entire experience with Dr. Haggerty and his team was wonderful! They are friendly, professional, courteous, and you can tell they truly enjoy what they do. I had my wisdom teeth extracted, and the entire process was effortless. Their guidance and compassion was invaluable, as I’ve never had any major medical or dental work done. The procedure was painless, and recovery was a breeze. I’d give them 10 stars if I could. Trust this office, you won’t regret it. Thanks Lakewood Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery!

– Chris Paschall

First of all, you will not find a nicer staff or doctor. But here is what is so amazing. I had to have 2 upper teeth pulled on Tuesday. I have had zero pain, zero swelling. It’s as if they were never pulled at all. How does that happen?!! If you need teeth extracted don’t go to anyone but Dr. Haggerty! My equally great dentist, Ross Morrison, referred me.

– Ann Williams

Excellent care from walking in the door upon arrival to walking out the door to go home. Very caring, friendly and professional staff

I had a tooth pulled by Dr. Haggerty today and it was a great experience! I was honestly nervous to have my tooth pulled but the doctor and his staff put my mind at ease. The assistants were great! Dr. Haggerty spoke to me the entire time he was doing my extraction and reassured me everything was going well. I highly recommend this office!!

– Hailey Minturn

Great experience! I had a negative experience with a prior wisdom tooth extraction, so I was a bit apprehensive. From when Dr. Haggerty began work on the tooth, it took maybe 90 seconds to complete a clean extraction. His entire staff was very pleasant and professional as well. Would highly recommend!

– George Creason

Dr. Haggerty and his staff were great. I had a dental implant placed and from the tooth extraction last summer through placement of the implant and post op care I always felt like he cared about my well being first and foremost. Would recommend this practice.

This by far was the best experience at I’ve had at any dental office. Dr. Haggerty and his staff were so professional and organized. They practically treat you like family straight at the door until you walk out. I was well pleased with the clean, yet relaxing atmosphere. I highly recommend Dr. Haggerty and his staff. He is proficient and very informative. I appreciate how well you took care of me even with a phone call the next day to make sure my oral surgery went well. Thank you! Thank you!

Dr. Haggerty and his team were amazing and easy to work with from the beginning to the end of my procedure. The office is clean and modern, and the room in which my procedure was done is spacious and comfortable. I wouldn’t trust anyone else but Dr. Haggerty with my oral surgery needs.

Olivia Jones

Very informative, and reassuring through the whole process. Had 4 wisdom teeth removed with local numbing and it went quick and painless (minus the numbing shots) but they kept me calm and talked me through it.

I can’t say enough about the great care that my daughter received at Lakewood. Dr. Haggerty was wonderful to explain each step of the surgery. From the ladies at the front desk to the nurses that assist Dr. Haggerty, everyone was so caring through every step of my daughter’s surgery.

Lisa Stoll

Everyone was very kind and attentive without ever feeling rushed or worried. Doctor Haggerty has a very calm demeanor and voice, as well as excellent technique. I had virtually no pain getting my cracked wisdom tooth pulled. They even showed me the xrays and the tooth afterwords. This is an office that cares about making what should be uncomfortable experience virtually stress free. Thanks to all the staff.

My daughter had a procedure this week and Dr. Haggerty and team were great. She was nervous as to be expected but the process was efficient and calm. Definitely recommend this team for children and adults. The office was clean, staff were friendly and visits ran on time. Great job!

Sarah Darby

I was extremely nervous for my wisdom teeth removal but the second I walked in it was bright, people were helpful and very clean atmosphere. The doctor and all the women working there did a fabulous job making me comfortable and telling me exactly everything that will happen. Definitely worth the drive out to Lee’s Summit to get a marvelous doctor. Would highly recommend anyone and everyone there. Had a great experience.

Jordan Preece

I was treated for a bone spur in my lower jaw. The procedure was very fast & efficient. The word “nice” doesn’t do justice for him and his staff. They were beyond nice. He & his staff go out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible. If possible I would give them a 10 star rating.

Scott Grasher

My experience at this office was great. The staff were all very friendly and professional. They listened to my concerns over issues I have had in the past and handled it accordingly. I would definitely go there again.

Debbie Osburn

Dr Haggerty and his team are wonderful! Had a procedure there and experienced no issues. They called me multiple times to check in to see how I was recovering. They also worked with me and my crazy schedule during my follow-up appts.

The removal of my son’s wisdom teeth went smoothly. Dr. Haggerty answered all of my son’s questions. Staff was very helpful and professional.

Denise Bricker

Today I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed. With it being my first time having any type of surgery I was very scared and nervous but Dr. Haggerty changed all that. He was very nice and explained everything to me. He would let me know what he was doing before he did it and made sure he had my approval before doing it. He let me know that I would be fine and I was in great hands. His staff is amazing they are very nice and did everything to make sure I was comfortable. The best service I ever had. I was definitely in great hands. Thank you for everything you’ve done.

– Blair D.

“Dr. Haggerty and his staff are amazing! Both of my kids had their wisdom teeth pulled on the same day. It was a Friday morning and they called to check on them and see if I had any questions multiple times. They even called on Saturday! When I did have a question about some pain my son was experiencing they told me to bring him in and they would see him right away! Highly recommend Dr. Haggerty and his wonderful staff!”

– Amy Wilbert

“Everyone was so wonderful! I really felt they cared about me and my family. Dr Haggerty went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable, and not self conscious.

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 

– Jordan List 

“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!

– Rachel Cunningham

– Laurina Ford

“My 20 yr old daughter had all four wisdom teeth pulled and our first impression of their new location top notch and great location. All staff very helpful and friendly. 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

“Excellent and courteous staff. Any questions were explained in detail. Will highly recommend this office for dental needs.”

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

“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.”

– 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!
