Patient Review By Richard B
Dr. Pisano was very good at explaining everything he was doing, and was very friendly. I felt like I was in really good hands during the extraction and then the implant placement. The assistants were also very friendly. I highly recommend the Center for Oral Surgery and Dental Implants for anything that requires an oral surgeon.

Patient Review By Nancy P
No one is excited to go to the dentist. This office had a relaxed atmosphere that did not cause anxiety. So, if I ever need to visit the office in the future, I will not have any worries about this.

Patient Review By Theodotta S
Doctor and staff tried very hard to make an unpleasant experience as pleasant as possible. Although I hope I never have to come back, I would strongly recommend this office for anyone who needs a tooth extracted.

Patient Review By Deb T
I had Dr.Billups remove a tooth a couple years ago and then last week Dr. Van Heukelom extracted two teeth. I have to say, I will never go any place but here for oral surgery. I have already recommended them to my sister. There is a very kind, caring and calming atmosphere in this office. Both Dr. Billups and Dr. Van Heukelom are great. They explained the procedure and asked if I had any questions. Both of them were very considerate of my health issues and took this into consideration with the procedure. This is the only place to go if you need oral surgery work done.

Patient Review By Ashley H
Both Dr. Rosie and the staff were very friendly! Everyone made me feel very at ease before and during my procedure. I was rather nervous but Dr. Noordhoek assured me being nervous is normal and that everything was going to be fine, and it was! I would highly recommend these services to a friend or family member!

Patient Review By Mary W
I was so nervous but everyone in the office was calm and non judgmental. The office called me the next day to check on me, I had no issues with the biopsy site at all! If anyone is fearful about dental procedures, this is the office for you! I really can't say enough about how good they are!

Patient Review By Lynne B
Dr. Rosie is cheerful and pleasant; none of the stuff that she said "could go wrong" did; my tooth was out in a "flash"; no pain throughout -- whatsoever. For me, I would have liked to know of the x-rays in advance -- I would not have worn jewelry. For me, the instructions regarding the mouth rinse were confusing -- different in the written, the prescription, and the bottle; today it's been 3 weeks; I have a small amount of rinse left; I will NOT use it; although it leaves my teeth feeling clean, it makes my tongue feel funny -- almost as if it went to sleep on the end.

Patient Review By Leah A
I felt so safe with this organization. From the staff, to the Doctors. Dr. Panek's work was simply flawless... I did not even need to take pain medication after he performed a cyst removal in my jaw along with a wisdom tooth extraction. I was quite nervous for the surgery and he was so comforting and professional. My husband and I are so grateful for Dr. Panek!

Patient Review By Betsy T
I felt so comfortable and welcomed there. I was greeted by a smiling face with every turn I took in that office. Dr. Emily Van Heukelom .....you have met your calling. Couldn't have asked for a better oral surgeon. You are so calm and it transferred over to me during the procedure. Most importantly, I didnt feel judged by anybody in the office because of the condition of my teeth. The focus was on having a healthier smile. I can't thank you enough!

Patient Review By Diana B
Dr. Panek is definitely a man doing what God created him to be. His knowledge in oral and maxillofacial surgery is exceptional; in addition, very rare in Michigan. By the time I heard of Dr. Panek, I had already exhausted many specialists. A sinus lift with 4 implants already failed from another dentist. I had no bone in my mouth and my arch of my mouth was little to none. No matter how my dentures fit, I could not keep them from falling out. I was without teeth for a year before I was informed of Dr. Panek. He was very patient, compassionate, and understanding. He listened to my story and then tried to explain my predicament. I did not know anything at the time of zygoma implants, however he stated that it would be the best way and actually the only way of guaranteeing me to have teeth. He would do 4 zygoma implants. All the way through surgery, as well as the six months of healing, Dr. Panek and his assistants were nothing short of courteous, considerate and caring, going above and beyond the call of duty. It was as if they were traveling with me on this new journey. Dr. Panek is truly gifted. I can honestly say that a day doesn’t go by without my utmost gratitude for Dr. Panek and his assistants. I would still be toothless today if he would’ve been like all the rest stating, ‘There is nothing more we can do for you.’ But instead, he did an extremely difficult surgery, flawless and with brilliance. Dr. Panek, without a doubt, is # 1 in my book!
