    Procedure: Dental implant

    Dr. Song and his team of professionals were very helpful and the quality of care was excellent.  It's been a few months since I had all four of my wisdom teeth extracted, and the healing process was as smooth as can be.  By day three the swelling went down significantly and I ceased taking any medications for pain.  I was nervous because I am in my mid-thirties and a little late in the process of getting this done, but I am glad that Dr. Song was there to perform the surgery.

    Dr. Song and his whole staff are professional, trustworthy and extremely kind! I was at ease every time i was in the office and that is hard to come by at an Oral Surgeon! I was recommended by a friend who had been a patient there and I am so glad I took his advice! I had 3 impacted wisdom teeth removed and was terrified! The whole procedure was short and I was surprised with how normal I felt when I left even after being put to sleep! My pain was minimal and my expectations were blown away! I would recommend him to anyone! Thank you to his wonderful staff for being so sweet and attentive!

    My 13-year old daughter had oral surgery with Dr. Song to expose an impacted tooth in her palette. I thought he did a great job and he was easy to deal with. He's got a low key demeanor and I never felt as if he was  being condescending the way some medical professionals can be. An altogether positive experience.

    Would definitely recommend DR. Song for a wisdom tooth extraction. Got mine taken out 6 hours ago. Basically no swelling, no pain, and the bleeding has stopped already. Dr. Songs staff is great at getting you over your anxiety. They are kind and courteous. They also give you a bag full of stuff to hold you over until you can make a trip to the grocery store. Very pleasant experience.

    Superb in every aspect! I had a severe bicycle accident resulting in a ER visit. I was referred to Dr. Song by my dentist, Dr. Robert Ho. I called, they got me in ASAP and were so very helpful. I had a few surgeries and have made a  full recovery. I was given support along the way and although we waited for almost a year for all the claims to be finally paid, Dr. Song's office stayed in touch and never once asked for more $$. The staff and Dr. Song showed compassion and professionalism at every step of the way. Thank you so much!!

    I would recommend Dr. Song to anyone. He and his staff are committed to making this process as easy for the patient as possible.

    I had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Song a couple of weeks ago.

    The consultation: They took a panoramic x-ray and gave me insurance quotes on my extraction. I was sick that day so they scheduled the extraction 3 weeks later to make sure I was well for surgery.

    Day of Surgery: I was nervous, but Dr. Song expertly extracted all 4 teeth, and afterwards, I was relieved it was over with.

    The healing process was quick, and mostly painless (nothing a little ibuprofen couldn't fix). You'll be happy you went with Dr. Song as your oral surgeon.

    Dr. Song and his staff are amazing!!  I went it to get all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled and they made the whole experience as painless as possible.  Dr. Song is seriously one of the nicest people you will meet.  If you need any kind of oral surgery do not hesitate to call them.

    I would recommend Dr. Song to anyone! All the staffs are very nice (especially since it was very early when I went) and made it less of a terrifying experience.

    I've heard my friends talk about their wisdom teeth surgery and how painful the aftermath was. I am happy to say that everything went swimmingly. I was given General Anesthesia so everything went by for me.

    Dr. Song and his staff are what I would consider the best practice for how a doctor and his office should operate. I got all of my wisdom teeth removed, and apparently my bottom wisdom teeth were pretty challenging to take out, but I felt no pain by the second day, and had no swelling.

    I cannot say enough about Dr. Song! My daughter had an odd growth in her mouth we needed to remove and biopsy. I was first referred to one place--horrible experience, second was UCSF, appt okay but the office staff was such a mess, I thought I would lose my mind

    I was referred to Dennis Song to get my wisdom teeth out. His staff is awesome and personable. He is super professional and to the point. He is also in-network for Delta Dental which is perfect for me :)

    I don't know if he is an awesome oral surgeon, or if I just was an easy case but my post-op was nothing like I have heard other people who have had wisdom teeth out say. I stopped taking my stronger pain med (vicodin) the day after surgery and just kept taking ibuprofen to help with swelling (which was minimal). I'd like to think it is because he is a top-notch oral surgeon. If I had any more wisdom teeth to be removed, I'd go straight to him. Alas, I have no more left :)

    I highly recommend Dr. Song and his team! I had my wisdom teeth extracted by him recently and the recovery was amazingly fast and I barely had any pain or swelling. The anesthesiologist was also really great and he put me at ease right away. The front desk staff are patient and don't mind you asking lots of questions. I would tell anyone who needs a dental surgeon to go here!

    The front office staff is amazing. They handled my many insurance questions and rescheduling with grace and never made me feel as high maintenance that I was being. Doc called us day before to talk about anesthesia- answered all questions and was reassuring. Going for dental surgery is never fun - especially when it's for your kid - but they made it relatively painless.

    Dr. Song may have saved my life --- and this is no exaggeration!  I had a dental implant done by another dentist, which ended up getting infected.  I was seeing the first dentist about three times a week for over two months and was at a complete loss about what to do.  Luckily, I was referred to Dr. Song by another dentist I knew.  As soon as he saw me, he scheduled me for immediate surgery, as he said what I had was "life threatening" (I had been told the same thing by a Kaiser doctor).  As it turned out, I had a HUGE sinus infection (although the first dentist was insistent that this was not the case).  Dr. Song removed the implant and cleaned out the sinus infection, and there was 100% improvement.  Eventually he redid the implant, which took about 20 minutes (with perfect results) --- whereas the first dentist took almost three hours to do the procedure.  It's very scary to think what might have happened if I hadn't connected with Dr. Song.  He is absolutely the best!

    I was recommended by my dentist, Dr. Pastel, to remove four wisdom teeth.

    I understand, the surgery is not a pleasant experience; however, Dr. Song made it as easy as possible. He took a really good care.

    And in results - very fast recovery.

    The staff is very friendly and organized. What else can you ask from a dentist office.

    I highly recommend Dr. Song.

    I had all four wisdom teeth removed 2 months ago and can't say enough about the awesomeness of Dr. Song and all of the staff at Song Oral Surgery. All of my questions and concerns prior to the procedure were thoroughly addressed. The surgery itself went super smooth and had zero complications post surgery. This place is setting the standard for sure.

    Just had my wisdom teeth removed and I'll have to say that the horror stories I heard beforehand were nothing like the experience I had. The staff is all very very friendly and helpful. I didn't have Dennis Song, but I had Suzim Um and she was perfect. I had all four wisdom teeth taken out- 3 of which were impacted and one was infected when I first had them looked at. I had them put me completely out - and I don't even remember being put to sleep. I think I went to sleep cracking jokes and woke up laughing. The pain was minimal, and they prescribed me the good stuff (aka vicodin) as well as ibuprofen and I barely even used half of it. I had some jaw stiffness but I'm pretty sure that was a normal part of the healing. I got no infections and thanks to my insurance, the cost didn't knock me on the floor. I HIGHLY recommend Song Oral Surgery - Suzim Um and her staff were wonderful.

    I cannot say enough good things about this place. Coincidentally all of my visits have been last minute pseudo-emergencies and the staff have been more than accommodating and advising what is best for my health. After one of my wisdom teeth poked through I began to feel a bit ill and finally called Song Oral Surgery for a consultation that my dentist had recommended 6 months prior. They said it sounded like I might have an infection and scheduled the consultation the next day, and after that the surgery two days later. I was very lucky there was no waiting period as this was the cause of my discomfort which immediately got better once the teeth were extracted. I had all four pulled out at once and full anesthesia. I was most surprised when I got two follow up calls from the doctor afterwards to make sure everything was going ok. They really made an unpleasant experience bearable and were extremely professional and kind.

    Could not have asked for a smoother experience, though my daughter might say otherwise.  She needed wisdom teeth extracted so we were referred to Dr. Song.  The office is small, but very professional and clean.  After our consultation, we scheduled the extraction on a Monday, had a follow up on the Friday after, and now she is as happy as can be.  Ok, not really because she's still adjusting to eating solids, but she'll get there.  For a quick, gentle procedure, I highly recommend Dr. Song.

    I knew my wisdoms teeth had to be removed, found their office on yelp! It was easy to make an appointment, they took my insurance, which is a plus! He office is very cozy, clean and comfortable. The exam rooms are spacious and they do an incredible job of sitting you down to explain your options and the procedures. I have an appointment scheduled now for January, I am at ease going into this appointment. They also referred me to a general dentist across the street, whom I just went to and they were awesome! Thank you

    This was my first experience with oral implants. Upon entering the office I noted it was clean and calm, and the surgery room was immaculate.

    The extraction of my broken molar was painless with no after-swelling and bleeding at all... which speaks to Dr. Song's skill.  Since I was on Fosamax (for bone density), he required a 3-month cessation period before beginning the process.  Another 3 months wait after the extraction for the healing and bone graft to take.
