"I've worked in the dental field for 8 years and wouldn't trust any other oral surgeons except the doctors at Midland. I had a recurring and painful issue that I had previously been seeing an endodontist for to no avail. I finally made an appointment with Midland and Dr. Tucke was straight forward with his diagnosis and recommendation for treatment. He was personable, knowledgeable about my situation, and calmed my nerves about having surgery. One visit later and my mouth is finally back to normal!"
"Went to Tinley location for 3 teeth extractions Jan 27th Dr. Hajiharis. I was nervous about the surgery prior to going there that day. I had anesthesia and honestly did not have any feeling or memory of getting the teeth extracted at all! No recollection of the experience happening was so seamless and painless! Thought was not performed at all and asked the nurse when they were starting the extraction and she informed me "It was already completed!" I had zero pain or swelling!! Amazing experience! I had to look in the mirror at home to see if teeth actually were extracted because there was no aftermath of pain or swelling at all!! Highly recommend!"
