What Our Patients Say
Got two upper wisdom teeth extracted here this morning. I feel great hours later and the procedure itself went very smoothly. Dr. Capps was wonderful and put my mind at ease before the operation. I highly recommend Fairfax Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. The whole team was great and took good care of me.
Dr. Capps is a great human. He truly cares about the safety and health of his patients. I appreciate him actually reading and asking questions about my health history before scheduling procedures. It sounds simple but often goes overlooked. Strong code of ethics.
Dr. Capps and team did a wonderful job with extraction and cutting a bridged crown! I have an unhealthy fear of dental procedures and requested to be put to sleep for the extraction. After the exam and some questions I got the OK. Dr. Capps inserted the IV and I barely felt the "stick"; I kept waiting for the "ouch" "ouch" "ouch" but he was good, no he was GREAT!!! It was a good experience, I was still a little anxious, but it was painless. Today is day after the procedure and no pain, tiny bit of swelling, but that's it! I highly recommend Dr. Capps and his team.
My 15yo son had a minor oral surgery performed to expose a tooth that was growing the wrong way. Dr. Byron Capps was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and competent. His work was clean, and healed really quickly. My son is very happy with the outcome of his operation, and with the progression of his pain. Thank you, Dr. Capps. And so far, everyone I have dealt with in their Centreville and Fairfax offices have been friendly, polite, and done their jobs well enough. I have only nice things to say.
