Vallejo Oral Surgery is AWESOME! They have taken really good care of me for my referral oral surgery. My initial appointment was with Dr. Elder; however, due to my schedule Dr. Riley was the one who actually did my procedure. They were both very professional; they make you feel comfortable; they make sure that you understand the procedure process. They are the BEST!

I had two teeth extracted and all went well. Dr. Ellis did a great job and my recovery is going smoothly.
The staff is great and make you feel at home.
Would definitely recommend Vallejo Oral surgery and Dr. Ellis.

Dr Riley is amazing! He made my visit pleasant despite the insurance issues I had at the fault of my general dentist. He is so funny and so smart, had a good time hanging w him while he pulled my aching teeth. His team is awesome as well. Also call to double check they take your insurance.

Dr Riley always takes the time to explain any time I have any questions and I really appreciate that. He is kind, funny and keeps things light which helps put me at ease while also being very professional. He made a pretty anxious time for me feel like not such a big deal. The office staff are all great. Visits are easy to book and there isn’t a long wait.

Amidst the pandemic of Covid-19 my daughter needed to have 4 wisdom teeth removed, one of which was causing great discomfort. I called to inquire about a consultation and was quickly offered an appointment the next day. We arrived to a busy office but were seen promptly and offered surgery to remove the offending teeth. Dr. Riley was pleasant and thorough with his explanation and the procedure took about 45 minutes. Everyone was very conscientious with cleanliness and over all health maintenance.

This was my first experience with Vallejo Oral Surgery as I was referred to them from Dr. Chaneyโ€™s dental office. I really appreciated the referral and the fact they could see me immediately! Dr. Riley was extremely knowledgeable and before I knew it extracted the remaining portion of my tooth without any pain! My thanks go to him and his assistants for making a stressful situation less stressful!!!

I am very pleased with their service and I highly recommend this place. I got 3 of my wisdom teeth pulled here and the entire experience was a lot better than i expected. The doctor did an amazing job. I just finished my follow up visit and everything is healing properly. Everyone including the receptionists are very friendly. I am very sensitive to pain so for an experience considerd as scary for many it was surprisingly not bad at all.
