Patient Review by Barry A
My husband and I were somewhat panicked, when we were having lunch and a back crown broke at gum level. It was December 29th and we were leaving for Peru December 30th. We contacted the Oral-Facial Surgical office in Stuart, after discovering our dentist's office was closed for the holidays. The staff and Dr. Strauss at Oral-Facial Surgical Assoc. could not have been better or more accommodating. They gave us an appointment for 2:45 PM the same day, and x-rays showed extraction was required. The procedure took approximately 45 minutes. Before we left the office an assistant explained the follow up care for the wound. Unfortunately, there was a lot of bleeding and I had to get in touch with the office at 5:45 PM. The attentive support was superb. "Ali" I believe was still working, and after listening to my concerns, connected me with the after hour emergency doctor. He walked me through the steps of using a Tea Bag wrapped in gauze and applying pressure directly to the wound, which did stop the profuse bleeding after 40 minutes. ( Seems we weren't putting pressure directly on the wound, which is necessary). The same doctor called me that evening to make sure all was okay, and again this morning, which I found astounding. Bravo to this excellent facility, the staff and doctors are excellent. Thank You!
