  • The surgery went so well.  I always felt at ease at Dr. Provider name locked. 's office.  His assistant answered all of my questions and was very thorough.  Should I need future dental surgeries, I'll return to Dr. Provider name locked. 's office without hesitation.

  • I have been seeing Dr. Provider name locked. for a number of years now.  It is as pleasant an experience and one could have, going to the dentist.  I am pleased with my care and I will continue to see Dr. Provider name locked. .

  • I will preface the following comments noting this is the same dentist and staff that removed my Provider name locked. teeth two years earlier without issue.  At that time he was friendly and I had minimal discomfort post-surgery. Generally, I would say Dr. Auzins is a kind dentist who is warm and friendly to his patients providing they are sedated during the procedure.   He was friendly and available when I needed him to pack my dry socket after having my Provider name locked. teeth removed.

    The difference between then and now is I was put under sedation when I had my Provider name locked. teeth removed.   In this most recent procedure I chose not to be sedated, but to use Nitrous Oxide (N2O) instead.   I found this last experience to be absolutely devastating.  Because of negative past experiences, I am an anxious patient to begin with, so my primary need from a dentist is to be heard.  If I say I can feel that, or I cannot feel the Nitrous, I need the dentist to stop what he/she is doing and listen to what I have to say.  Dr. Auzins did not listen to me when I told him, before he gave me the initial shot, that I could not feel the nitrous.  Instead of investigating the issue he proceeded.  This triggered me and put me in distress, tears were flowing and I was panicking.  I told him again after the shot that I could not feel the nitrous.  He told me when people are in distress nitrous does not always work, he did not bother to check his equipment.  He proceeded to extract my molar and do the bone graft, all the while I am crying.  Strangely, towards the end of the extraction, the nitrous kicked in for about three minutes and I started to feel a calm and peace throughout my body.  When the procedure was over I asked him why he adjusted the nitrous at the end and he said he never touched it and proceeded to tell me about the brain and how it doesn't always react the way we would expect from sedation and medication.  

    That may be true, but I am a seasoned patient who has had extensive dental work done; two adult molars extracted from different dentists, 7 root canals, multiple crowns, a bridge and numerous fillings over the last 30 years.  I have had Nitrous Oxide for at least 70% of those procedures, all of which I am sure I was "distressed" and each time felt the Nitrous.  I know my body and what I can expect from it.   The fact that the N2O kicked in through part of the procedure while I was still extremely distressed and that I have never had problems in the past with N2O, leads me to believe that Dr. Auzins’ equipment was faulty.  After I went home no one followed up to see if I was ok, no one from Dr. Auzins' office called to check in.   I didn’t yell at anyone, I wasn’t scary.   I was sad and traumatized and no one cared to treat me like a human being.   Even if it was my brain impeding the N2O, that should not have stopped the Dr. from listening to me and investigating my concerns and following up to see if I was okay. I would not recommend Dr. Auzins’ office because of their inability to treat non-catatonic, unsedated patients like human beings.
