Patient Review

I was so impressed by Dr. Thayer and staff that I must write them a glowing review! I had an infected tooth extracted and the entire process was as painless as I have ever had done. By night fall I felt absolutely fine with little or NO pain and a day after I barely know I had the extraction done. I have never had such a great experience with an oral surgeon and I will HIGHLY recommend Dr. Thayer and his staff. And to top it off the price was extremely reasonable even though I had no dental insurance.

Patient Review

I have to say I have been to numerous doctors offices over the course of my lifetime of 50 years so far and Dr. Thayer's office is by far the very best doctors office I have ever visited. I am so impressed by the overall experience I just feel so compelled to comment about it. He and his staff truly are professional and caring not only during your visit but also with follow up. They called me the very next day to check on me. He is one of the best doctors I have ever been referred to. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone needing oral/facial surgery. I thank God for him and his staff. They really did treat me with such grace and compassion and I appreciate all his expert work on my case. I could not be more pleased with him. I have my dignity back thanks to Dr. Thayer. If anyone needs a truly great oral surgeon, Dr. Thayer is one of a kind. You will not find a better DMD anywhere and believe me I have been to enough to know. You are one of a kind sir and God bless you and your staff.

Patient Review

Dr. Akers performed my wisdom teeth extraction surgery on August 31st, 2017 and I would recommend him and his staff to everyone! The waiting room and exam rooms were very clean. The staff was AWESOME. They were so kind and caring. I was extremely nervous about having my wisdom teeth out, but they were so incredibly nice to me and understanding. They made me as comfortable as possible. Two of my wisdom teeth were impacted, one holding a 2nd molar under the gum. Dr. Akers also worked on that tooth as well, to try to help it come up where it should be. Even in the recovery room, I was treated very well and the staff was kind, caring, and gentle. Dr. Akers and his staff deserve more than a 5 star rating!

I had all four of my wisdom teeth extracted with just local anesthetic and Dr Thayer and his team ensured I was comfortable the whole way through. They continuously told me what they were going to do, what to expect and ensured I was ok all throughout. They're a great team and highly recommend them.

I would highly recommend Florida Oral and Facial to anyone who is looking to have their wisdom teeth taken out. I heard terrible stories about how awful it was and how painful it was going to be. I have had very little pain and swelling after my procedure. The staff was great from the time I walked in to the time I left, they put me at ease as I was VERY nervous being sedated. I can not say enough nice things about Dr Hamilton! If I need anything else done I will be back!!

Wow, where to start. The office is very clean and beautiful. Every member of the staff was compassionate, caring and very kind. My first appointment was the day after I called, they were able to remove the tooth, 2 weeks later the infection was gone. I went in a stranger and 10 minutes later felt like family. I wouldn't hesitate to go back. Amazing people, every single person!

I had two teeth extracted #18 and #20. I am 71 years old and in all of my medical visits I have never been more pleased. Dr. Hamilton was very gentle and thorough on his explanation of procedures. I did not feel a thing and even asked if he was finished.. I would highly recommend Dr. Hamilton.Five Stars

Patient Review

My experience with Florida Oral & Facial has been amazing!!! Everyone from the front door, surgical room, insurance office, billing office, scheduling desk to the exit door (and even after care) have been wonderful. They are knowledgeable, friendly, caring and instill confidence about their office/skills with everything I have had done. Dr. Schalit is an amazing doctor who has gone far above and beyond what was expected!! I first met Dr. Schalit about 14 years ago when he took care of my son after a sports related accident (jaw/facial). Our family had the same wonderful experience with him back then!

I really found this clinic above standards. Dr. Thayer was a pleasure to work with. He answered my questions and found ways to minimize my concerns. I couldn't be more satisfied with the overall procedure, and results. I certainly hope I do not have more skin cancer issues, but if I should it will be Dr. Thayer I search out for treatment.

Dr. Shalit goes above and beyond I believe with everything that he does he actually makes you feel as if you are part of his family I will never see anyone else! I have had a cosmetic procedure done and some fillers and have been extremely happy with the results! I refer him every chance I get actually seven or eight of my friends go to him now.

Patient Review

I have no dental insurance, but this tooth needed to go, #14 to be exact. Called the office in Palm Coast & they were extremely helpful in getting me the next available appt. in the Daytona Beach Office. There I met Dr. Thayer, who was extremely polite, friendly & explained what he was doing. I was expecting so much pain, but I didn't even feel a thing when he was giving me the Novocaine shots! Added bonus is that my whole mouth didn't go numb. Just the area he need to work on. The whole procedure went smoothly, the tooth was OUT! Here I am a day out & have only needed a few Tylenol for a little discomfort. Plus it didn't wipe out my bank account! Dr. Thayer & everyone there are outstanding.

Patient Review

I had lived with a missing tooth for many years but was tired of not being able to chew. I had seen an article about Dr Akers and decided I wanted to have an implant. It was a very easy painless procedure and I love that I can know eat and chew with ease. Dr Akers and his whole staff were wonderful. Katrina his implant coordinator helped guide me through the whole procedure from the costs to helping me get financing. I will definitely recommend his office to anyone I know needing dental work.

Patient Review

I had double jaw surgery with a genioplasty, on 1/26/16, to correct several things. I had a very narrow airway, deviated septum, sever overbite and both my upper & lower jaws were underdeveloped. Moving everything foward, corrected all the above. I'm 2 weeks post op & feel great and I'm so happy with my results. I couldn't be happier to have Dr. Akers & his entire staff take care of me. They really have been amazing!

Patient Review

I was taken by surprise when I called on a Friday afternoon and got a Monday morning appointment !! I was also amazed at the ease of which the shots were given , I am TERRIFIED of needles and I swear it was like giving blood , barely any pain at . The doctor and nurse kept me calm , then did a FANTASTIC job of removing a very tough sideways wisdom tooth . It really was no where near as bad as I though . I was expecting a NICE pain festival , but it was nothing like that at all 🙂 They even called to check up on me later that afternoon !! TOP NOTCH group here and I am GLAD Dr. Valenzi recommended me to your practice . Very professional and compassionate staff and as I said , the procedure was done with hardly any discomfort . How many people can say that about having an impacted wisdom tooth removed ?? THIS guy can , thanks everyone . You can all have the day off with pay 🙂 Seriously , thank you ALL for your professionalism and making me feel at ease in a place where that was the LAST thing I expected to feel . Another thing , I went to the beach in New Smyrna right after since I had taken the day off , BONUS 🙂 🙂 🙂

Always inviting patients to come back to tweak a procedure, Dr. Schalit conveys the limitless concern he has for each patient. His recommendations are based on solid medical training, unequaled experience and common sense. He is confident in his abilities and those of his staff...and I am, too.
