Dr. Michael Foster is one of he greatest professionals I have ever met. Dr Foster performed an extraction, bone graft and implant plus found a problem with another tooth that no other dentist ever mentioned but the problem is clearly visible on my past x-rays. Dr. Foster and his team are the best in all aspects from the first appointment to follow ups. If you need an oral surgeon or a second opinion that you can trust then I highly recommend Dr Foster and his team.

Had oral surgery today and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had with this type of dental procedure. I get very nervous and anxious when at the dentist, let alone, oral surgeon. The staff is amazing and I unfortunately did not get Dr. Fosters assistants name but she was awesome. So caring and compassionate and funny. Really helped me to relax and have a few laughs!

I have used AOIS and Dr. Jason Pickup on two separate occasions - (both times - tooth extraction and implant) and very pleased with both procedures. I was informed of everything that needed to be done and the steps that needed to be taken - they were very accommodating to my schedule. I would highly recommend Dr. Pickup - I can't say anything about any of the other doctors - he is the only one I've seen - and want to see.

We had a very traumatic experience where our daughter's head was split open and needed a decent amount of stitches. It meant a lot when Dr. Wells and the Staff greeted us with warmth and confidence that everything was going to be ok. We had limited waiting time and they quickly moved us through the entire process in a calm and professional manner. Our daughter's head was stitched up quickly and even she was surprised at how quick and painless the process was. Thank you Dr. Wells and staff!

I have had teeth removed & several implants installed by Dr Pickup and his staff. I am very much pleased with the work performed by Dr Pickup & his staff. They took the time to explain the pros & cons and answer all questions I had. I highly recommend Dr Pickup and his staff for any oral or implant surgery that you may need. Many thanks to you and your staff & I very much appreciate what you done for me!!! If you read this and have any question about who to see, this is the place to go! Thanks!
