I had completely fractured the top right rear molar a couple of months ago by biting down on a hard Halls Menthol candy. I didn't realize the tooth was cracked and I didn't know cracked all the way down straight through the middle until my gum started bleeding due to food particles wedging down into the tooth. Two dentists said the tooth could not be repaired. Dentist number 2, Dr. Shim, recommended Dr. Aiken for the Oral Surgeon to do the extraction. I wanted someone in his caliber since I have a small mouth and the tooth on the Dentists X-rays, looked to be possibly close to the sinus. Coincidentally, my wife goes there for complicated procedures and likes him, so I said he must be the guy. You know, like it was meant to be.
He is slightly far to drive to his office from Hiram, but it was totally worth the drive
I give Dr. Aiken 5 stars and I would give him 10 stars if I could. He is a gentle, kind, personable and excellent Oral Surgeon. I didn't want Nitrous Oxide, (laughing gas), so I opted just for the Novacain. I was put at ease by the assistant Carlos and by Doctor Aiken's consultation The chair was comfortable and soft music was playing. The extraction process didn't seem to take all that long. After the tooth was pulled, Dr. Aiken did a great job cleaning the area for infection. I had very little, post operative pain. Just needed the prescription Advil. Very little swelling. Feels good and its not even 24 hours later. I know it will take 72 hours, but right now, it's pretty good!! Like I said 10 stars. BTW the rest of the staff is professional and kind. I give them all a 10.

My son recently had 4 permanent teeth pulled by Dr. Aiken in preparation for placement of braces. Dr. Aiken and his staff were amazing. He communicated well with my son before and during the procedure so that he knew what to expect. His pain was well managed. His staff is incredibly nice and professional. We appreciated Dr. Aiken providing his cell phone in case of questions after we left the office, and also appreciated Dr. Aiken's follow up phone call the day after the procedure to check on my son. I highly recommend this practice- we will be back for wisdom teeth extraction in a few years! Thank you Dr. Aiken and staff!

Although I was super nervous about getting all 4 wisdom teeth removed as an adult, Dr. Aiken and Carlos did an awesome job and I barely had any swelling or issues afterwards.
Thank you Dr. Aiken & the team! Would highly recommend this office as I’m typically very picky and have had consultations at two other offices before choosing this one.

Dr.Aiken is amazing!!! He has a lot of great qualities, one being very empathetic and understanding. He is very skillful. He was very patient and straight forward throughout the whole process. I felt very comfortable. The actual surgery was pleasant and painless. I would recommend him to everyone hands down. Thank you Dr.Aiken you have my loyalty as a patient!

My dentist asked that I have a top oral surgeon look at a growth on the underside of my tongue, so I took his advice. He referred me to Oral Surgery Specialists so I booked with Dr. Andrew Aiken. First of all, the reception was terrific. Every step of the process was smooth and I was made to feel very comfortable (note: I am not comfortable in a doctor's office, to say the least). Secondly, Dr. Aiken was terrific. He made the excision process an easy one, much to my surprise. I was never in any pain or discomfort. He made me comfortable from start-to-finish. Great job, Dr. Aiken and team. Thank you!

Dr. Shessel Removed Gaye’s Son’s Wisdom Teeth in Atlanta, GA

I brought my son in to have his wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Drew Shessel. Dr. Shessel walked us through the entire process prior to the procedure — just explained exactly what he was going to do and explained the entire recovery process — but I was never nervous before, and I certainly wasn't nervous after. I would highly recommend sending anybody to Oral Surgery Specialists ....

Dr. Shessel Placed Donna’s Dental Implant

I came to Dr. Shessel to have a dental implant. I was very nervous because I've had nothing wrong with my teeth, but he calmed me down. He's so gentle and so you weren't afraid to ask questions. He just has a wonderful demeanor. From the time he put even the implant in before they did the tooth, it just was comfortable. Dr. Shessel's wonderful. You could tell how well liked he ....


Jonathan’s Wisdom Teeth Removal in Atlanta, GA

The reason why I needed Dr. Aiken in Atlanta is because I had two wisdom teeth that were impacted. As soon as I came into his office, his staff was amazing. They were friendly and I just knew this place was the place for me. Having my procedure done with Dr. Aiken went very well. Dr. Aiken talked to me during the whole procedure. We laughed, and he's friendly, ....



Dr. Aiken Placed Melinda’s Dental Implants

I had two implants that failed. I was nervous. I just fear dentists. I fear just going to the dentist, and the way Dr. Aiken just makes you feel when you come here, and the staff is just amazing. He numbed my mouth. He actually went in — every five minutes, he was asking me, "Are you okay? How are you feeling?" Anytime you have great customer service, and you have the entire st....



Woody Had Extractions, Bone Grafting, and Received Dental Implants

I had a toothache like I've never had before. The pain was just so great that we ended up finding that there was actually a crack in the tooth. Dr. Shessel was absolutely wonderful, because actually when I saw him, I was in dire pain, and I think he actually worked me in because it was kind of an emergency — for me anyway. He was able to take the tooth out and put the bone graf....



Pam Replaced Her Extracted Teeth With Dental Implants

I had two different implants and extractions. The staff is very sweet and very competent. Dr. Aiken has a very pleasant demeanor. He's very smart, and he can explain things in clear terms, and he also let me listen to music last time during the surgery. They went fine; I had no trouble. Of course, used ice on my face for a couple of days, but I wasn't ever in any pain. I would ....

Dr. Shessel — th....



Cheryl’s Tooth Extraction

I needed an extraction of a baby tooth. Dr. Aiken recommended that I have the extraction of the baby tooth, and from there, he made a flipper tooth so that I wouldn't be without a tooth in my mouth. Dr. Aiken is very friendly. He greeted me every time I came to his office. He made me feel relaxed. He explained it from the beginning to the very end and made me feel very comforta....



Rossi Had a Tooth Extraction

Hi, my name is Rossi. I came to see Dr. Aiken because I needed an extraction. I had met Dr. Aiken in church and discovered that he was an oral surgeon. At the time, I didn't know that I was going to need one but about a month later found out that I needed to have a tooth extracted and immediately thought of him because he had impressed me, not only with his friendliness but his....



Zlatan Restored His Tooth With a Bone Graft and Dental Implant

A few years ago, I noticed some pain and discomfort in the right side of my face. The dentist said that I have an abscess, and he said that the most qualified person in the whole city to deal with that problem would be Dr. Aiken. My implant and my bone graft have completely healed, and definitely having the abscess fixed by Dr. Aiken and having the implant put in gives me a pea....

Joe’s Wisdom Teeth Removal

I had one wisdom teeth out when I was 16, and I had three in since then, obviously, and my regular dentist had told me for about 15 years I needed to get them out at some point. Dr. Aiken was great.

Dr. Shessel Removed Mike’s Wisdom Teeth

I was one of those rare people who actually had all of his wisdom teeth. They got to a point where I knew I was going to have to start extracting each of them, one at a time. So I got a referral to Dr. Shessel, went and saw him, and he just did a great job with it. It was very smooth, really spent a lot more time with me than I thought physicians these days normally do with the....
