I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Achong right before school started. The staff was nice and even listened to music with me while I was in the recovery area. The procedure was much easier than I thought. I was all healed up and returned to my summer job after just a few days.
No one loves having oral surgery. But I do love how easy it was at Dr. Achong’s practice. I have zero regrets about avoiding the increasing pain that would have resulted from doing nothing!
The friendly and relaxed attitude of his staff put me at total ease from the moment I walked in the door. I did not have to wait long to experience their calm, professional efficiency back in the treatment area. When I saw Dr. Achong, he immediately and confidently identified my problem, and yet he left the decision about treatment up to me.
Again, dental surgery is nothing to look forward to, but deadening is a marvelous thing. And because of the pre-deadening swab applied to my gums, the actual shot turned out to be a big nothing. This is what makes oral surgery do-able. You know something major is happening, but the physical sensations are just not there.
Dr. Achong addressed a problem that was only going to get worse and made it a non-issue. And again, his calm, matter of fact, friendly yet totally professional demeanor really took the edge off my procedure.
I recommend Dr. Achong for any oral surgery that may ever become necessary. We all hope it never comes to that, but when it does, it’s far better to let him take care of it rather than put up with a deteriorating, increasingly painful issue.
A few weeks ago I started experiencing some pretty serious pain from a wisdom tooth, and after getting the run around from another dental facility, I was extremely fortunate to find myself at Dr. Achong’s office.
We reviewed the X-ray, went over my options for anesthetic, and within a few days I was back for the extraction. My appointment was at 10:00 AM, by 10:20 I was back in my car driving home to spend the afternoon eating jello and ice cream (how bad is that?). The actual procedure took about 4 minutes. Zero pain. Later that afternoon I even received a follow-up call from the office just to see how I was feeling.
Nobody likes having “oral surgery”, even the words sound scary. I told my wife I hope she has to have something done, just so she can experience the level of customer service!
From the moment you walk in the door, it’s clear that this is a first rate facility. If you require any kind of oral care, I strongly recommend having it done with Dr. Achong and his staff.
Had a wisdom tooth removed “late in life” after more than a year of unexplained facial and jaw pain. Standard Xrays did not reveal anything, so I was referred to Dr. Achong for evaluation. After just one (high-tech!) Xray, the problem was discovered immediately and he recommended removal with sedation. BEST ADVICE EVER. They scheduled me a couple of days later (at my convenience!), then provided exquisite service from the moment I stepped in the door. Whisked to the back, not left in the waiting area to stew and worry….
Extremely helpful staff from the front desk to the insurance stop to the treatment rooms and right to my car. Had I known it would be this little discomfort, and so easy on the wallet, I would not have spent on minute worrying. Nor should you. If you have mouth pain, go see Dr. Achong. He is a pleasant guy who obviously knows his business. His staff is top notch, and his equipment state of the art. As a “major chicken” when it comes to needles and “surgery” of any sort, this entire process was a most comfortable one indeed–much less pain than I thought possible for “surgery.”
I am happy to report that, one week post-extraction, I was given the “all clear” to return to normal eating, brushing, “anything I want!” Interestingly, the pain that radiated from my wisdom tooth below the left eye (#17 is its official name) forward five teeth, with aching jaw problems for over a year that neither Ibuprofen nor Acetaminophen could control, was completely gone within days. I am already pain free. Only took the post-surg meds two days before the pain had subsided. Not a moment’s trouble at the incision site. Not even discomfort to eat.
REMARKABLE!!! CALL THESE PEOPLE IF YOU NEED ORAL SURGERY!!!!
At first I was terrified of going under and the pain that comes with an extraction as I heard it was prior to experience.
The easiness and quickness of the whole experience was very surprising to me.Office is friendly and very quick and down to the point. A total of 2 visits about 25 minutes each and It was over. Dr. Achong is very quick and skilled. Over all it was a very quick, easy and friendly experience.
I had to get all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed at the same time. My Doctor for the procedure was Dr. Achong, he told me exactly needed to be done an he could do it right away. The next time I went in simple procedures just signing some papers an before I knew it i was already asleep. After the surgery of course I felt pain but after a day or so I did not even need to use the pain killers. My experience was amazing there, nothing but kind an helpfull people same with the doctor.
Thanks to Dr. Achong my smile makes me proud again. I hate anything that has to do with Dentist/oral stuff. Dr. Achong made me feel very comfortable. His expertise in this field shows. His bedside manner was great. Now my son has had his wisdom teeth out by Dr. Achong and I will recommend him to everyone I know. Thanks!

I had my wisdom teeth taken out by a different Clermont oral surgeon. That oral surgeon “broke” one of my permanent molars in the process of removing the wisdom teeth. Bad infection, loss of tooth. I was very upset about it. Dr. Achong removed my broken tooth, stitched the area perfectly, and reassured me while giving me my options. I wish that I had gone to him to begin with. The other oral surgeon was-nervous and not very confident. It is no wonder he messed up. It seemed like my procedure was a simple process for Dr. Achong. You would think he could do it blindfolded. I recommend him all of the time. Best Oral Surgeon in Clermont-hands down.
Friendly, Professional and Caring! A wonderful experience they were helpful in getting appt. set up and they bill the Ins. company. Dr. Achong and all of your staff… Thank you!
Wonderful!!! This was a surprising experience for me. I was very nervous and everyone there was so kind. My surgery was over before I even thought they had started! It was wonderfully painless with no problems! Thanks to Dr Achong, and the whole staff for being so helpful.
