With Dr. Hermann Kluge you are definitely in good hands. I had two extractions, an implant and an epicectomy done by Dr. Kluge. He is a very experienced oral surgeon, very patient-centered, empathetic and gentle. His assistants, both medical and administrative, were also very supportive.

Wow, an amazing experience I had. Removed one of my tooth and through the whole process I did not feel any pain. Doctor kept making jokes with me while busy with the procedure. The process took less than 5 min with no pain. The man does have lots of experience.
