Patient Review By Gwen R
I came in with an abscessed tooth, that was making me sick I knew it needed to come out. I have not had great experiences with dentist, so I asked for sedation. Fred made me fill right at home. The day of the procedure went so smooth, I could not believe it, I had no pain after the procedure at all. I was amazed

The entire staff was fantastic. My son had his wisdom teeth extracted and it went smooth. The assistant, Jessica was amazing as well. She went over the post op instructions thoroughly, and Dr. Hill also called me later on to check on Gavin as did Jessica the next day.

When it comes to going to the dentist I can be apprehensive but as soon as I walked in the door I somehow felt at ease; everything was going to be ok. I was greeted quickly and kindly by the front office. I was called to the back by Jennifer and given an xray. She was very nice. Dr. Hill came to see me, did an exam and explained the procedure(s) to me and assured me everything would be ok. I let him know I tend to get somewhat nervous when I can hear what's going on so he suggested going under anesthesia. (I also had an infection and he explained that sometimes local anesthetic can be difficult to accept in the area). I made the choice to go under and it was the right decision. Fred had me laughing before I was knocked out and continued his jokes after I was awake. He's a very sweet man and has compassion for their patients. I was in a lot of pain going in and came out with very, very little. I'm so happy that I chose Dr. Hill and if I ever need oral surgery again, this is where I will go. Thank you Dr. Hill and to all your staff, you're awesome!!

I was so worried walking into the office to get all four of my wisdom teeth extracted. As soon as Fred brought me to the back, I was laughing so much. Fred is so amazing, he makes you feel so comfortable and he's hilarious. And, once I met the Dr. Hill, I was in even more ease. Both of them together made this such an amazing experience for me. I went into the surgery laughing and came out of it laughing. Its been 3 hours since I've gotten all for of my wisdom teeth extracted, and I feel amazing. The only thing I wanted to do as soon as I got home was write this review!

I recently had two teeth extracted at Sierra Foothills Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Natomas. In spite of my fear of the dentist, terrible gag reflex, and the shame I feel after years of neglecting my teeth, I can’t say enough good things about my experience here. The front desk staff are welcoming, flexible, honest, and kind. The assistants are friendly, funny, respectful, and very good at what they do. Prior to each procedure, the staff and the doctor clearly laid out the details of the procedure and payment options. I felt like they did a great job explaining everything and offering professional opinions without applying any pressure or judgement. I’ve spent most of my time around Dr. Hill unconscious but he definitely does a great job, listens to patients concerns, is sensitive with regard to pain management, and called me later in the day to check in after each procedure. I highly recommend this office for anyone in need of oral surgery. Knowing that every person on the staff is great at what they do AND friendly is priceless!

Ran behind schedule which was annoying, but it's a doctor's office so that's inevitable

I hate needles, and jump every time I get stuck. This doctor gave me an IV that I didn't realize he done it until it was over, outstanding!

I needed a tooth extraction ASAP and had know appointment. My oral surgeon doctor called your office after the root canal he performed showed that I needed to get my tooth extracted. He called your office at 11 am and you took me in at 2 pm!!! Your office really helped me out at a time i was in great pain with my tooth. Dr Wes Hill was excellent and was the entire staff during the extraction of my tooth. I received (2) follow up calls from Dr Wes Hill to check on my status and also received a call from his staff to check on my status of my tooth extraction. I would highly recommend Sierra Foothills to any of my family and friends. Cant thank you team and staff enough! Sincerely, Will Schwenning Jr.
