Wisdom Teeth Johnston RI
What are wisdom teeth?
Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.

Patient Review by S. P
I could not have asked for a better experience. The staff and Dr. Young were great throughout the procedure. Dr. Young took the time to call me later in the day after my procedure to make sure I was doing ok which was very thoughtful. I had a great recovery and did not have any complications. And i can't say enough great things about the girls who were at reception every time I went in, for the x-rays to the day of my procedure. Thank you for your great service to me and being so incredibly helpful. You all made this whole process so seamless and comfortable for me.

Patient Review by Karina R
I was very nervous about getting my wisdom teeth extracted. From my initial visit to the office Dr. Young and his staff were very welcoming and outgoing. The office itself is very clean and organized. All my questions and concerns were answered during my visit and the surgery itself went very well. It is rare to walk into a office setting and have all the staff be so caring and friendly as the staff at this office. On a scale 1-10, 10 being excellent my experience was a 10!!! I will definitely recommend friends and family to this office and let them know about my experience.

Patient Review by Jill L
I am a mother of three boys, my eldest needing his wisdom teeth removed. I was so impressed with the care and kindness shown to us. I felt like my son was the only patient there (although there were definitely others) they truly made us feel special. Maria was actually sitting with my son helping him relax, you could tell that she really cared about him. I would recommend this office to anyone. They made what I thought might be an unpleasant experience a favorable one. Thank you to all of the staff for watching over my son.

Patient Review by Darlene S
My daughter had her Wisdom Teeth extracted at this office. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Young and staff. Naturally, prior to having your Wisdom Teeth removed, you are nervous. Dr. Young's office quieted all of our fears in a caring, nurturing manner, while, at all times remaining very professional. The surgery was done in a timely manner, in a clean, professional environment. As a Mom, I was able to walk right in and sit with my daughter in a very comfortable, private, recovery room, immediately following the surgery. One nurse, in particular, stood out as a source of comfort to my daughter...prior to, during and after the surgery. Her name is Maria. Maria, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your dedication to patients is evident in your kind, caring demeanor. You are an asset to your profession, and Shannon and I feel truly blessed to have been in your care today.

Patient Review by Ebony S
I would recommend this office to ANYONE! I got my lower impacted wisdom teeth removed. I was VERY anxious thinking about the procedure so I researched a few places and finally chose Dr. Young. They made me feel very comfortable and my stitching was basically perfect. I have almost no swelling and I didn't need to use any pain medication afterwards. (Not to say that swelling and pain will be the same for everyone!!) Anyways. I am EXTREMELY happy with their office, attitude and professional service. Choose them!!!

Dr. Young explained the procedure in the first appointment and indicated choices for anesthesia. After the procedure, the office staff sent home instructions to follow for the first 24 hours after surgery and thereafter. Would recommend this office.

Patient Review by Richard C
I can't believe I was nervous about getting my wisdom teeth out but they assured me that there no reason to be nervous and they were completely right. This was the best visit I've had with a dentist and it was supposed to be the worst. I would recommend him to anyone who has to get any type of oral surgery he is the best in his field. This goes along with his amazing stafff that makes you feel like your the first and only priority.

Patient Review by Lily F
I usually hate going to the dentist so I try to take care of my teeth. However, my experience at with Dr. Steven Young and the staff members were very pleasing. Dr. Steven was very easy-going and professional. He was very careful with each injection. The operation itself only took a few minutes. The staff were super friendly and very personable both over the phone and in person. They were very professional and had a very upbringing energy! I love how you'd just know that they genuinely enjoy and proud of what they do.

Patient Review by Elsa S
Dr. Young and his staff maintained a quiet office during the procedure to remove our daughter's wisdom teeth - a request we made since she would be experiencing pain and we wouldn't want it to be a worse experience in any way. In addition, Dr. Young checked the results of his work in a follow-up visit, and it provided us with added relief that all was well.

Patient Review by Ryan F
Prior to visiting Dr. Young I had a bad experience with having a tooth extracted. I made Dr. Young and the staff aware of the anxiety I was facing about having all four wisdom teeth removed. Before rushing into anything they took the time to reassure and comfort me. The office has a relaxed and up beat atmosphere that made me feel as if I'd been coming for years. The procedure was quick and recovery is going better than ever expected. Dr Young came highly recommended and I wouldn't hesitate to refer friends and family. Thanks again Dr Young, Maria, Robin, and Brittany.

Patient Review by Perla S
I was referred to Dr. Steven Young by my brother. I recently had two of my wisdom teeth removed. Upon arrival, I was nervous. I've heard horror stories from friends about getting their wisdom teeth removed in the past and how painful the procedure can be. From the injections to the removal of the two teeth to the stitches - It was absolutely painless. Dr. Young and his assistant have a very calming and reassuring presence. Later that day I received a call to make sure everything was going good and see if I had any questions. He cares about his patient. Though the first night was uncomfortable, I began to feel better by the next day. The bleeding had stopped and I experienced minimal swelling. I would highly recommend Dr. Young I'd also like to say that the staff members in Dr. Young's office are very sweet, funny and attentive from the very first consultation. I knew I made a great choice by going there.

Patient Review by Kristen P
I recently had four wisdom teeth removed. Dr. Young's office staff scheduled my consultation quicker then any other oral surgeon in northern Rhode Island. The staff made me feel at ease. This was my first surgery ever. Dr. Young even called me that night to see how I was doing. Everyone was very professional and welcoming. I remember nothing about the actual procedure as I decided to recieve anesthesia. Recover was quick. After two days I no longer was in pain. I had very minimal swelling in my face. I would recommend Dr.Young to any family or friend!
