Throughout all my years, from childhood to adult, I was filled with reluctance, and trepidation. I utilized every avoidance technique I could think of when having to go to the dentist. I humbly admit that not one dentist or oral surgeon ever awarded me their “Best Patient of the Week” (Month,Year). But last fall, I finally found a masterful and gentle Oral Surgeon who epitomizes the best of all professionals in his arena!
Dr. Rockwell is indubitably, a gracious communicator because he is an empathic listener. He consistently exudes confidence, competence, commitment, and compassion. Dr. Rockwell has the unique ability to transcend traditional and typical oral health barriers (acutely anxious patients) by employing an individualized, differentiated approach to oral surgery. He passionately exemplifies the Patient/Person-centric paradigm. And he’s quite funny!
Roger, Dr. Rockwell’s Medical Assistant, is highly skilled, knowledgeable, and supportive. He has the rare ability to provide that special sauce to help patients feel at ease. He employs very effective distraction techniques that worked really well for me!
This 5 star review wouldn’t be complete without describing the Rockwell Oral and Facial Clinic! Upon entering, you’re greeted by a friendly front desk receptionist. The waiting room is stunning with its modern/industrial furniture, light fixtures, and intriguing artworks that depict domestic and global city maps. A hollowed out vintage TV holds small bottles of water, and an up-cycled industrial coffee table-on-wheels holds super large art books. Floor to ceiling glass windows and doors reveal minimalist office spaces. Dr. Rockwell utilizes the latest technology in equipment (i.e. CT Scan specifically made for oral surgery). Each patient surgical room includes a mounted large-screen smart TV with streaming movies or music to soothe and distract the patient. Other exam and surgical rooms include other modern artworks depicting city maps. Is it Rome? Vienna? Barcelona? By the way, the entire clinic is immaculate including their amazing restroom!
I've just completed my year-long “journey” and surprisingly wish it didn’t have to end. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Dr. Damion Rockwell as the quintessential, consummate Maxillofacial Oral Surgeon!
