Oral Surgery And Dental Implants

As dental specialists, it is our priority to provide quality dental care you can trust.


I am a DentisPhobe of some 30 years standing - thanks to a Dentist who was the absolute worst in every way possible... like the Dentist in "the Marathon Man" on steriods... and someone who over a span of some 9 years gave me PTSD around all things Dentists and dental work.... I actually swore off Dentists for the rest of my life and thought I was going to make it until the inevitable dental problems recently caught up with me big time..

Enter, first, Dr. Bruce Bothwell, also of Alameda (separate Yelp review) who recognized that I needed a good oral surgeon fast. He referred me to Dr. Knoll... Dr. Knoll performed oral surgery 2 weeks ago and removed a little less that 40% of my teeth....

It wasn't easy (because of my fears, distrust based upon past experience, and PTSD) but, I have to report that Dr Knoll and his staff did more than "surgery" on my mouth - they, with their care and caring attitudes, with their concern and manner of being in all areas - actually gave me back, to a great degree, my faith in dental professionals.

Dr. Knoll and his entire staff deserve ten stars or more... I cannot recommend this office and the people who staff it, from Dr. Knoll on down, more highly than this: THEY TURNED MY LIFE (as far as dentistry and taking care of my body) AROUND... they've restored a great deal of my faith, and, most importantly, I am learning to trust Dentists and the like once again.

I took out my wisdom tooth out here.
The place is really nice and they took out my wisdom tooth like magic. The syringe didn't hurt a bit, and I was put to sleep like naturally. After the surgery, there was hardly any discomfort, and I feel I'm recovering very fast.
The instructions are very easy to follow, and they conveniently provide rides.

I had a tooth with a fractured root that was giving me pain for almost a year. Due to previous negative dental experiences, I put it off until it became unbearable. I called the California Oral Surgery Center, and they fit me in for an evaluation with Dr. Knoll the next day. He acknowledged my fears, settled my nerves and scheduled me for an extraction two days later. I was dreading it.

It went beautifully. He sedated me, and I woke up never knowing what happened. I had no swelling, minimal bleeding and only took one pain pill. I was so relieved, and if I had known it was going to be this easy, I would have done it earlier.

The staff is very competent, and I felt well taken care of in general. thank you,Dr.Knoll and staff!

What an amazing experience, I had to have a tooth removed, not a good day for me, however Dr Knoll made it basically painless and it was over before I knew it. He took the time to tell me everything he was doing and was very gentle, it didn't hurt a bit.The staff there are extreamly nice and caring. The after care was easy I only had to take one of the perscribed pain pills and that was only in the beginning to "get ahead of the pain" No pain after that, no swelling and it is healing well. I am the biggest baby in the world and I wasn't even scared. Five stars for Dr Knoll.
