Wisdom Teeth | San Luis Obispo
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.

Patient Testimonial by Nancy A
Not looking forward to another procedure anytime soon.... but without hesitation I would only have Dr. Janette & his staff care for me. They were caring, knowledgeable, providing dignified, compassionate care. The post-op instructions, discharge was a breeze. I appreciated their covid19 protocols. The vibe in the waiting room was calming and tastefully decorated.

Dr. Janette and his staff are all great. Very friendly and approachable. Was able to get in two visits (one for consultation and one for procedure itself) only one day after I called them as there was a cancellation. Had 4 wisdom teeth extraction with local anesthesia which was done in 40-45 minutes. Sedation was available but I did not have anyone to drive me. In retrospect, the local anesthesia worked so well that I would opt for it again even if I had a ride home. Dr. Janette is very careful with applying additional anesthesia as needed. Seems we spent more time for anesthesia in the beginning than the extractions themselves. Post procedural printout was succinct and helpful. He prescribed pain killers but I ultimately did not need them and pain/soreness well controlled with only Tylenol and ibuprofen. Day 4 post procedure now and still very happy with the whole process.

Went for wisdom teeth extraction and a dental implant. Procedure explained very clearly. Very nice, spacious, and clean facilities. All precaurions taken on social distancing, mask wearing and hand sanitizers at entrance to protect staff and patients.

This office was the most efficient I have been to. They didn’t waste my time by requiring the typical “consultation”. They called when they said they would and worked with our schedule. Everyone was very professional and Dr. Janette was great and put my son at ease. No waiting and clear guidelines for after care. Excellent office.

Not my first rodeo with Dr Janette and staff. No need to "extract" a compliment from me, you guys are truly the bomb. In every respect, from staff interfacing with patients to Dr J's skill and care as an oral surgeon, you have got it together. I recommend you everywhere I go and in fact, just met a woman yesterday who is also a patient and gave high praise. We were doing the math on whether we'd be dead before Dr J retired, and hoping we would!

The whole team was wonderful and fully explained what to expect. Dr. Janette thoroughly explained the procedure and gave extra advise about my dental plan; which I really appreciated. I had a wisdom tooth extraction that went by smoothly and so quick! I am very glad I choose this office and look forward to continuing my dental plan with Dr. Janette.

Patient Testimonial by Rhea R
Is it an oxymoron to say having two wisdom teeth removed by Dr Janette was fun? Fab staff front to back as well. He and his assistant put up with my sense of humor and music. Thank you for the great care.

Patient Testimonial by Anna B.
Even though getting your wisdom teeth out is not the most pleasant procedure, I felt extremely comfortable with the staff and all the after care required. Dr Jennet was great at answering any of my questions and was flexible with any problems that came up. I would highly recommend this center.

Patient Testimonial by Dawn B.
San Luis Oral Surgery staff was extremely friendly and professional and they processed our insurance information quickly and accurately. Dr. Janette made us feel at ease and knowledgable about the procedure when he was reviewing my daughter's x-rays and explaining the process of her wisdom teeth removal. I liked how they provided us with the prescription before her surgery appointment so we wouldn't have to wait in the pharmacy after her wisdom teeth were removed. I will definitely use San Luis Oral Surgery when my younger children need their wisdom teeth removed!
