Patient Review By Leah M

Dr. Noordhoek was very friendly and made me feel comfortable during my procedure, this really helped me not be nervous about having all four wisdom teeth removed. My doctor and her staff made sure that I was well informed on how to take care of my teeth after the removal, giving me both verbal and written instructions that I was able to take home. The meeting a couple of weeks before the actual procedure was also very helpful because it allowed to me know how the procedure would go and allowed me to prepare the necessary supplies for my recovery. I also liked that I was given options on how I wanted my procedure to be carried out. Lastly, I love that they let me keep the teeth that were removed and they put them in a secure bag.

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 roxanne s

I have been to this office twice and Dr. Billips has made it really easy for me. I am afraid of a dentist and she talks and asks if I'm ok all the time she is working.She makes me comfortable with her. Thank you Dr. for everything you have done for me. 6162134750 cell for any text

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!

Patient Review By Audrey S

Dr. Noordhoek was AMAZING. Friendly, upbeat, funny! All characteristics I value when evaluating an individual operating inside of my mouth! Nothing but positive things to say about the staff, surgery, and facility. An overall great experience for a not-so-fun procedure, but I was more than well taken care of (to say the least!), and I would 110% recommend to anyone!

I would definitely recommend Grand Rapids Oral Surgery and Dr. Billups. They eased my anxiety and were very informative. I received a call the day after my biopsy to check on how I was doing, which I thought was great!

Patient Review By Lori W

There is no way to thank Dr Panek and his staff for all the work, that was done for me. I hope sometime in the future I can pay it forward, to some one else. Thank you so very much. And to the girl who handled that huge camera, that took the finished pictures, great job!!!

Patient Review By Jamie L

To say that I was terrified to have my two impacted lower wisdom teeth removed at the age of 34 is a gross understatement. My anxiety was through the roof and despite my fear, the staff and doctor made me feel so incredibly comfortable throughout the entire process. I cannot thank them enough for the professional, kind manner with which they treated me while doing their job so effortlessly! Before I knew it I was done and on my way home. Thank you all for making this a smooth, experience for someone who is always so plagued with anxiety! I highly recommend this office!

I am extremely impressed by the entire experience. I felt very supported prior to, during and after my procedure. Dr. Noodhoek and all staff worked very hard to attend to my care. I was provided options for pain management and given excellent information related to after care and the healing process. I would definitely recommend this practice to friends and family.

Patient Review By Lloyd L

It has been 2 weeks now and my pain is going away. Again i am very thankful to Doctor Panek and staff for taking care of me and following up on my surgery. Also for giving a little break on the cost. Don't know if it was a Veteran discount but this old Army Veteran is grateful.

Patient Review By Jane L

It took me 2 referrals to get to this point, beginning with my own dentist, then for a possible root canal which couldn't be done..then to Oral Surgery. I am still in the healing process, but after discomfort and bleeding issues the first day, I am following my instructions and doing great. My husband called the afternoon of the procedure because I couldn't get the bleeding to stop, using the gauze pads I'd been given. My husband left a message but we received a call back in a very short time. The old tea bag trick worked, interesting because we had both heard of that but didn't think of it. We appreciate the followup and would certainly recommend Center for Oral Surgery to our friends and family. Thank you for your professionalism and caring attitude

Patient Review By Darlene B

I was very nervous about this extraction. I knew the tooth was cracked and there was some infection in the gum. But everyone was so nice. Tried to make me feel comfortable. Follow-up phone calls were so-o appreciated. Discharge instructions were very thorough and easy to understand. I am now not so nervous about having the implant put in.

Patient Review By Dan S

What a wonderfully diverse and talented team of surgeons...and staff too! And they are every bit as friendly as indicated on the website. I live in Caledonia, but eagerly (yes, even for an extraction) drove to Plainfield and Five Mile for my two office visits. I had never been there or met anyone on the team before my visits, but I HIGHLY recommend them now!

Patient Review By Chadwick B

Dr. Panek performed wisdom teeth extractions for my wife and daughter, and he recently extracted the remains of a tooth for me and replaced it with an implant. We all have had a great experience with Dr. Panek! In each case, the procedure itself was painless and recovery time was short and without complications. Our experience with him and his staff was overwhelmingly positive!

Patient Review By Kayla V

Dr. Noordhoek is an amazing doctor! Her personality is amazing. I was a bit nervous before my procedure, but as soon as she entered the room, I knew I would be alright. She is very calming and relaxing. My coworker said the exact same thing! The staff was also very nice, kind, and understanding. They treated me very well. I would not be afraid to return again. They are very welcoming and I could have not had a better experience. .
