Hi, I'm Dr. Melissa Rathburn. I'm an orthodontist here in Atlanta, and I've been practicing for approximately 23 years. Dr. Berry and Dr. Aiken are very open to meeting with us when we're working on a case that might be very difficult, a case that requires not only an orthodontist but an oral surgeon that would provide their expertise for the case. We've been working with them for many, many years, and they provide excellent care to our patients whether it's an extraction of wisdom teeth, extraction of primary teeth, but also of implant placement and difficult types of surgical intervention, for example impacted teeth. There is absolutely no doubt when we refer a patient for difficult oral surgery procedures we much prefer them be in the hands of a qualified and experienced oral surgeon. Both Dr. Berry and Dr. Aiken can provide that experience and expertise. Especially for wisdom teeth, patients are often very anxious and require some sort of general anesthesia and not only do they provide that, but they also provide different levels of anesthesia so a patient will have the choice of whether they want to be very awake to very asleep. I feel very, very comfortable working with this practice and feel very comfortable with their expertise and the quality of care that they provide for our patients.
