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. Shaikh is the most gentle and kindhearted dental surgeon I have ever met. Having had a previous bad expirience with a dentist, he was able to put my mind at ease and made me feel comfortable in everyone's most feared chair. He made this expirience for me as smooth as possible, this is the bed side manner all physicans should exhibit to their patients.

Dr. Morales did the wisdom teeth removal surgery for my husband and myself many years ago. We were very impressed with the courtesy and professionalism of his office. He is a fantastic oral surgeon.Now, I came back as both of my children needed to have their wisdom teeth remove. Once again we received great patient service, courtesy and professionalism. I have referred many friends and family to Dr. Morales' office. Thank you for everything!!!

Dr Zakir Shaikh is THE BEST! Our experience was THE BEST. He has the sensitivity component to connect with his patients. He took the time to talk to me and my daughter and he answered all our questions. No other doctor has done that with me for the last 20 plus years that I have leaved in Orlando. Thank Dr Zakir for treat us as humans not as one more number. God keeps blessing you and your practice

Patient Review by Heather M
My son, who is 15 recently had his wisdom teeth extracted. He was very nervous about having the procedure, and everyone on the staff was friendly and caring. Dr. Morales was kind and thorough in explaining the process. Feeling like he was cared about, my son and I felt better about a procedure that we were both nervous about. Everyone was friendly and took time to answer our questions. Thank you for a positive experience!

Patient Review by Catherine B
This was my first trip to the office (East Orlando). I didn't have my surgical experience yet, but the consultation was great. The wait time was very short, the Dr. explained the process in a way I could understand. Sofia was the best. She is such an asset to the office. She really took her time explaining things to me. From scheduling, to pre surgical instructions as well as insurance. Sofia made everything seem so easy. She was able to answer all my questions in great detail. What I most appreciated was how she worked with me on the scheduling. Time was of the essence for me and she was able to make it happen!

Patient Review by Diane M
Our 15 year old daughter had her 4 wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Shaikh. Both Dr. Shikh and Nurse Sara took excellent care of our daughter. The procedure was clearly explained to us at the consultation. We received specific post-care instructions which mirrored their website information. We were very relieved that our daughter was only receiving "Twighlight sedation". We were able to be with our daughter up until the procedure began. They had the appropriate monitoring equipment in place. Dr. Shaikh is also an MD and Board Certified in the use of Anesthesia. This is critically important. Our daughter did not experience any significant swelling...she did have an ice pack on her face once we got home. Rotating 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. The next day she was fine, as if nothing had happened. She went back to school on Monday. We are extremely pleased with the care that our daughter received. We would definitely return to OraFacial for a dental procedure and recommend them to family and friends. Thank you!
