Another Miracle Worker at Berks Oral Surgery
I had a good feeling about Doctor Fred. Perhaps it was because he recognized the genius of Nikola Tesla, the inventor without whom we would have had the nationwide power grid a century after we began using it. Every faultless drop-in carbon button in our telephone handset uses improvements conceived by Tesla. But the world knows little about Tesla; perhaps Nikola didn’t work well with others. At the age of 74, and still recovering from cognitive and balance problems, I needed a wisdom tooth removed, so I asked for Dr. Fred. Dr. Fred saw me at 1:40 for tooth #1, a wisdom tooth that had frequent fillings and was sensitive again, but my restorative dentist declined to do another filling. A tooth with the entire crown essentially filling, and new decay along the gum line is not a good candidate for a simple extraction with its three roots. Plus elderly patients often have poor ligaments (PDLs). My ligaments are good, so Dr. Fred pressed against the face of the tooth first; the crown didn’t break off. Next this gifted surgeon pressed the other way, perhaps repeating the process. Ok, he said, it looks ready to come out… and it did! With a slightly pink gauze pad pressed against the socket I drove home; it was 2:40. A nice clot had formed despite the 81 mg aspirin I took that morning (I skipped my Omega 3). I pressed the nice reusable ice pack in the comfort bag they gave me against my cheek then and again before bed. I also took 1,000 mg acetaminophen an hour before bedtime. I dozed on the couch for 2 hours, then went to bed at 10:00 and awoke at 4:00 to void (8 hours). I took a little sliver of 5 mg Ambien (about 2 mg) and returned to bed for another 4 hours. Since my stroke, 10 hours after a hard day usually refreshes me. I was ready to go again the next day with 12 hours sleep, less a short interruption. I’m eating solid food two days after having a wisdom tooth removed. Amazing! Almost forgot. Berks Oral Surgery takes your BP before and after procedures. I’ve been bother by elevated BP since the weather turned cold; I blamed it on lack of aerobic exercise. Kendall, Dr. Fred’s assistant asked me if I could remove my fleece lined outer shirt, which I did. My BP was 140/72… sitting in a dental chair awaiting surgery! Afterwards it was 141/73. My BP has been elevated because I’d been taking it with a wooly shirt every time. (Nurses in doctor’s offices don’t ask you to remove anything; 120/72 every time. Yea, right.) My PC always takes mine himself after we’ve chatted a bit. (Last night my relaxed BP was 112/69 (without my wolly shirt), back to where it should be.) Thanks Kendall… and a big thanks to Dr. Fred.

Great to find Berks Oral Surgery in Exeter Twp. and now Hamburg too
Since Berks Oral Surgery was recommended for removal of our children's and my wife's third molars, I have been there a half dozen times. Fred Ciabattoni removed a flap of oral mucosa that had been biten inside my mouth; it never bothered me since. But the most amazing feat of dental legerdemain was when John Ciabattoni (they call them Dr Fred and Dr John) extracted tooth 17, commonly called a lower third molar. He reached inside my mouth and said "Let's see how this is.", then whipped his hand around his back. I said "Oh, it feels better already." He showed me the tooth and told me that I had good ligaments (the connective tissue that holds your tooth in place). That was it; I hardly felt a thing. Stephen Fallon is my current dental surgeon. He has done three extractions, two implants and an apicoectomy. (My whole extended family has few natural teeth left) I've seen doctor Fallon for consults as well and he always has the right answers. I still lose teeth occasionally, but at least there is now a permanent solution. My reconstructive dentist is great, but there is a point where she asks me if I want to make an appointment with Berks Oral Surgery. Update: The week before Thanksgiving I lost a crown and post on tooth 15. Our reconstructive dentist looked at it and I was scheduled to see Dr. Fallon the following Wednesday when he is ordinarily in our area; the day before turkey day. Aside from the 10 minute wait for the local to take effect, I was in the office about 10 minutes. One crack to separate the roots and I felt him draw one side out then the other (two roots). This is an upper tooth half way in the back! You might think something that easy could be done by anyone, but just the opposite is true. Dr. Fallon's experience and skill is what made it go so quickly. With no 'fooling around' I had almost no discomfort on Thanksgiving day, and no swelling, and will very likely not have any discoloration. I had candied sweets, mashed potatoes, soft filling with gravy, cranberries and 'uncle' Richards turkey that almost falls off the bones. Update 2: Back to Doctor Fred; he was in the Exeter office when I needed help fast. There's not much I can add to my review above: Dr. Fred put me at ease immediately and took an interest in me personally. The whole staff at the new Exeter location is great. Dr. Fred's explanation of the procedure was through, and I was able to get an appointment with my restorative dentist, Kathy Gurski-Becker before the procedure. so an appliance to fill the gap in the front of my mouth would be ready when needed. I had a front tooth break off at the gumline fifty years ago, but I was 25 years old; a lot of children get teeth knocked out. Adults don't have missing teeth unless they don't have good insurance or a personal relationship with dental practices. I have both and it is a great comfort to me.

Professional, Caring, Compassionate
I will be the first to say, I am not a fan of Dentists. But it is one of the necessities in life we cannot do without. I believe that most of us have a slight fear of going there. Not because the Physicians are mean, or the staff. But because we just do not like people poking around in our mouths. I will say the staff at Berks Oral Surgery made me feel very comfortable. The Physician was Caring and explained each step of the process. The procedure on a scale of 1 to 10 for Pain, was about a 1 - even the local anesthetic wasn't bad. My wife and children at one point in life had to use their services. All of them we're pleasant experiences. Though the check-in staff said they would return my x-rays to my Dentist with a Thank You letter for the referral - what they did not know is that Berks Oral Surgery is the only Oral Surgery I will use or bring my family to. We have several "chain" Dentistry's within a 1 mile of our home. Berks Oral Surgery is an 18 mile drive. They are worth that 30 minute drive.

Very Pleased
Dr. Sibley did a great job (coronectomy) removing the crown of my wisdom tooth and avoiding injury to the nerve. He and his staff explained everything thoroughly and were very competent, kind and friendly.

Competent, quick and professional
They were able to accomdate me in the shortest time in comparison to other local oral surgeons. Office is beautiful, staff friendly, everything explained as it went along. Had a tooth pulled and was in and out in 30 mins. Felt nothing.

Professional and friendly
This was my daughter's first experience with having her teeth pulled at BOS. All the information that the staff provided to her was based at a level a child could understand. This definitely helped to put her at ease. I was 100% confident and pleased with the whole experience. Thank you to everyone.

Best dental experience ever
I have been terrified of having any dental work done my entire adult life because of bad experiences I had as a child. Needless to say that when I had both lost a filling and suddenly broke a tooth, I was panicked. When I called Berks Oral Surgery about my situation they were able to give me an appointment within 3 days. They were friendly and professional from the receptionist to the doctor. I was well informed of my options for care, the pros and cons of each, and their related costs.Their good humor put me at ease while prepping me for surgery. I chose general IV anesthesia (even though my surgery was relatively minor) so, of course, I neither heard or felt anything during the procedure. #1 priority in my book! They sent me home with meds and methods to control the few days of post-op pain, and had me back in a week for a follow-up appointment. When I showed up at the wrong office for that appointment they offered to squeeze me in there rather than have me drive a half hour to the correct office. I now have no apprehensions about going back for any other oral surgery I may need in the future. Thank you BOS!

Good service
It seemed like I had to wait awhile for the CT scan.

Tooth extraction review
Handled professionally, had confidence throughout. Gold crown that was removed, does it have any value?
