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.

Dr. Hockema was excellent. My son had all four impacted wisdom teeth removed. The experience was very professional and very efficient. My son had very little discomfort and was back to school after the weekend. I would recommend Dr. Hockema as he is also very thorough and caring.

Dr. Montefalco is amazing. His care and concern for both my children during their wisdom teeth removal was impeccable. We had to call during the weekend, he was prompt to contact me and guided us through our issue. He fit our daughter in the next morning and she became pain free instantly.
- Andrea C
Dr Hockema is a great doctor. He even called me the evening of my surgery to ask how I was feeling. That was so sweet and professional. I will refer him to anyone and everyone I know! Ashley was stellar as well!

I choose wisdom teeth, she did have that done after she had a fractured jaw and dislocated jaw. We have been seeing Dr. Tancredi for over a year and half for multiple things for my daughter since her accident. He has made us feel so welcome and like family. I totally trust him with my daughter and his decisions. My 17 year old daughter who has been seeing him since she was 15 is so at ease, comfortable and trust him with everything. When she was getting ready to go back for her third surgery she was nervous all day, but as soon as he came in she was relaxed and calm. I would totally recommend this office and especially Dr. Tancredi. I can't think him enough for everything he has done. Thank you Dr. Tancredi for everything and making us feel like family.

This was my first visit to this office. The staff was extremely professional and friendly. The oral surgeon ( Dr. Kapp) made me feel at ease. Overall, it was a fairly quick appointment and I left with all needed information. I would definitely use this office again; if needed, and would recommend this office to others.

My experience was really made wonderful by the gal helping Dr Lambert out, I believe her name was Kate/Katie and she calmed me down when I was really starting to get nervous as the procedure was starting. People like her make a visit memorable and I felt very welcome and at home here because of the friendly staff like her. My procedure was scheduled as a last minute thing due to infection and I'm so grateful they fit me into the schedule to remove my teeth THE VERY NEXT DAY! 🙂

I've needed to have this surgery for 5+ years but always canceled. Because of the kindness and conscientiousness of my doctor and staff, I finally made it all the way to the chair. Everyone took my reservations seriously and answered my questions, which eased the anxiety somewhat. The surgery went quickly and did not deserve any of the fear I had built up for it. I am 6 days post-op and have healed very nicely. I have had almost no pain and only used the pain medication the first day. I can't thank everyone enough for helping me get this done comfortably.
- Leah B
My overall experience was great.
- Tamatha M
My oral surgery experience here was excellent. Everyone from the office staff to Dr Davis was super friendly, understanding, and professional. I never felt rushed or uninformed.

I wish I could give a higher rating than 5 stars! I even recommend Dr. Lapp to my friends outside of Indiana (they think I'm joking). I was very nervous about getting my wisdom teeth pulled. It was my first surgery ever, and I had heard nothing but awful experiences from my friends who went to other places. The nurse was so nice even when I cried like a child. Dr. Lapp did a wonderful job - I barely even used the ibuprofen I was prescribed! I came back a few years later for jaw surgery, both top and bottom. Once again, the nurses, anesthesiologist, and surgeons were phenomenal. It was an uncomfortable recovery, but the flowers they sent, the phone calls afterward to check on me, and the completely life-changing improvement of my jaw function and smile were absolutely worth it. 10/10 would recommend IOMSA for any oral surgery needs!
- Christie H
Dr. Lambert and the staff at IOMSA is outstanding. We had come here after the first office we went to did not sit right with us. I cannot express how glad I am that we found IOMSA. Not only were they extremely professional, highly skilled and knowledgeable, they were personable and caring. The cleanliness of the office from the outside of the building to the restrooms was remarkable. It is obvious that they truly love what they do and care about their patients and their families.
- Laura B
I would recommend anyone needing their wisdom teeth removed to come here. The staff was friendly and professional each time and Dr. Montefalco was wonderful. I have had no issues whatsoever and never needed the pain medicine. I had some soreness for a few days and everything is healing wonderfully. I am so happy with the results. I was very scared at first being in my thirties. Thank you Dr. and staff for everything.
- Amber A
I loved my experience at IOMSA! I would definitely recommend this place to a friend. They were so caring even to me, a thirteen year old who was very anxious about her first surgery. My first surgery will never be forgotten! Dr. Lambert was my favorite and he sang I can't Feel My Face to me to get me to go to sleep. Comfortable and amazing experience!
- Hailey H
Dr. Davis did a superb job. Hardly any pain at all. The first day, my mouth was a joke, but after it has felt great. Very impressed.
- Joey P
In case anyone is reading this who is searching for an oral surgeon. I can't praise Montefalco enough! I had never had any sort of surgery before, never had anesthesia, and never even had a stitch. Also, I'm very OCD about my teeth. So needless to say, i was petrified about the whole ordeal. He even prescribed me three Valiums to take prior to coming in to calm my nerves. I was so freaked out and worked up, the Valiums did nothing to phase me. Haha! I only had 3 wisdom teeth. The forth one never formed. All 3 of mine were impacted though and the one that formed on the bottom had the roots grow all the down and around the nerve. I had a good chance of nerve damage causing loss of feeling and sensitivity resulting in getting it removed, but the damagae it would cause to my other teeth by keeping it outweighed the risk. Surgery went smooth and fantastic. No nerve damage and i can honestly say the top two teeth that were removed caused me no pain postoperation even though they were impacted. The one on the bottom caused me some discomfort but was very well managed with pain medication. It swelled up huuuuge though. But he had to cut all the way down to my jaw bone in order to remove it, so that is to be expected. The swelling was the main contributing factor the the discomfort. One week after my surgery and I was good to go! 🙂

I was very nervous going in there, because I have never been put to sleep, nor have I ever had surgery. Everyone was very friendly and helped to feel more at ease. I highly recommend their facility. Dr. Lambert was just great. He could tell I was nervous and helped me to relax.
- Colton L
Was very satisfied with the staff extremely welcoming & friendly and how easy it was to schedule. Overall a great facility.
Dr. Pruitt and his staff are wonderful. He fully explained everything and made sure I had a chance to ask questions. The staff is very friendly and the office is very well organized. I appreciate Dr. pruitt writing a letter of medical necessity so that I was able to have sedation coverage for the procedure due to my high anxiety. I would recommend this office to others. Thank you.

Dr. Bojrab did an excellent job in removing my wisdom teeth and while i had a lot of anxiety, the staff did a great job taking care of me!
- Chris C
Dr. Tancredi was super in every way - when I left after two teeth pulled, I had no discomfort whatsoever. He did not hurt me one bit - I had no swelling, no numbness when I left, no bruising, no pain, no stiffness and no frustration. I think he is great.
- Clona N
Very good staffs.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience with Dr. Bojrab & his staff. They were able to make special accommodations for my emergency tooth extraction, & had the most amazing bedside manner & care. Dr. Bojrab took the time to personally call the evening of my surgery, just to make sure I was doing ok. I highly recommend Dr. Bojrab for any of your oral surgery needs.
