Dr. Straw extracted all four of my teenage son's wisdom teeth efficiently and accurately. My son had no swelling or pain after. He never needed pain medication other than Advil to help with the inflammation. The staff provided excellent home care instructions which were easy to follow. I really appreciate Dr. Straw taking the time after the procedure to explain how things went. My dad is a dentist and he too was like this with his patients which they loved him for. It is the extra time given that people really appreciate and makes them feel well cared for. Thank you, Dr. Straw, for taking such great care of my son. I know many of his friends will be coming to see you based on our experience at your office.

I recently had to have several teeth pulled and implants installed. Since I am a real nervous dental patient I appreciated the concern shown me by both the staff and Dr. Straw. All the procedures were done with minimal discomfort to me and after just 1 or 2 days my mouth was no longer sore and I did not require much in the way of pain medication. I am now in the process of getting the crowns installed by my regular dentist and cannot thank Dr Straw and his team enough for the wonderful job they did and the care they gave me. I would highly recommend Dr Straw to anyone looking for a great place to get implants.

Re: Dr. Jason A. Straw I have been a patient of Dr. Straw’s since 2014 and I am 85 years old. An aging and failing set of dental work required that I had several extractions and subsequent implants. In my long experience Dr. Straw is unsurpassed in the skill he possesses in doing extractions. I had all my work done with local anesthetic including four implants. All of them were virtually painless. Although I had access to much stronger painkillers all I ever needed was ONE aspirin subsequent to the work.. I can HIGHLY recommend Dr. Straw for any kind of dental procedures. Poul

I have always been afraid of the dentist and avoided it for years, but finally I took the first step and made an appointment, Went to this office for the first time and had a very short waiting time. Placerville office was very nice and relaxing as I was already nervous to be at the dentist. Met the staff and Dr. Straw. Everyone there was very polite and caring. The orientation for removing all wisdom teeth was very informative and helped me settle my nerves. I had deep roots so they wanted to make sure removing it wouldn't hurt my facial nerves. I had another appointment for a special x-ray at the El Dorado office to make sure they could do the extraction safely. The El Dorado office was equally nice and relaxing with again very little wait time. I later had the surgery at the El Dorado office. I was still a little nervous, but they were gently talking me through the steps as I was put out. It was over before I knew it. Now I wonder: What was I so afraid for? I recovered and had a followup appointment to make sure I was healing up. Every visit was fast, efficient and the staff and doctor were always kind and left me with a smile on my face. They gave me a Jamba-Juice gift card to make things a little smoothie-er! Thank you Dr. Straw and staff for the care and making my fears go away. I wouldn't mind going back and I highly recommend coming here!

Nervous as could be to have my wisdom teeth out at age 61, but what I realized afterward was that the waiting up to my appointment was the worst part of the entire experience. I had to move my appointment at the last minute, but they were gracious and worked with me to establish a new appointment at a convenient time. Initial consultation with Dr. Straw helped put me at ease. He, as well as his staff, were very nice throughout. I really don't remember much about the procedure, which I consider a good thing and I was only mildly uncomfortable for about a day. Within a week, I was pretty much healed up good to go. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Dr. Straw and his team were amazing from start to finish. When I found out I needed to have my wisdom teeth extracted, I was nervous as anyone would be. After talking with Dr. Straw during my free consult, he explained everything that would be done during my procedure, and what measures I should take pre and post op to have healthy healing. I strongly feel Dr. Straw is HIGHLY knowledgeable in his field and I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone needing oral surgery. Dr. Straw has two offices; one located in Placerville and one in El Dorado Hills, each BEAUTIFUL and relaxing, with great staff! I attended my post-op visit today and had my stitches removed. The assistant that took them out was friendly and gentle and gave me good information on how to continue my healing process. She was very interpersonal and even offered me a banana when my blood sugar began to drop during my check up. I really appreciated her concern and care. On my way out Dr. Straws staff gifted me an awesome custom cup with a few nic-nacs and a $5.00 gift card to Coldstone, as a thank you for choosing their office! This was so thoughtful and made my day. I also would like to applaud the front staff member Stacy for being very formative and prompt with appointment reminders and explanations of financial agreements. I really love this office a whole bunch and thank them for a great experience to a not-so-fun surgery! I recommend to all.

It is hard for me to fully express my sincere gratitude to Dr Straw and his entire team. In January 2015 my dentist discovered a large void under 3 of my teeth on a routine xray and advised my that it could be anything from a cyst to cancer. Needless to say my world was rocked. Dr Straw made time to see me the next day. His confidence and expertise calmed me down. Other doctors who my wife called said they did not deal with such a major issue. Dr Straw conducted a 4 hour surgery at Mercy Folsom to take a piece of my hip bone and graft into the void. The surgery was highly successful and I was very relieved to find out I had an aggressive type of cyst and not cancer. Over the last 12 months Dr Straw and his team have performed the necessary reconstructive surgeries to the point that I am now about the get my four implants. All of this has gone flawlessly. They have the latest technology and a lot of experience. Every one of his team also had tremendous attitude and compassion. They were also very effective at dealing with medical insurance to get a good part of my procedures covered by my health insurance.

My mother at 90 years old went to Dr. Jason Straw for teeth extraction with teeth that needed to be be pulled. Her teeth were beginning to abcess and cause a major health issue. She had no problems and healed timely. My experience was just as professional, and I am extremely happy with the initial visit, the surgery and follow up appointments.

If you are reading the reviews to decide where you want to have needed oral surgery done, stop right now. You have found the right place. Just with every profession, you will find that there are A+ doctors and D- doctors. Dr. Straw is A+++. He takes his time with you to make sure you completely understand your procedure and is just a great guy. After my first appointment, I felt like he was an old friend. But it's not just him. His staff is fantastic. They all go the extra mile to help you out and make you fell comfortable. They even took on my insurance carrier to cover all the work I needed to have. The surgery, a sinus lift and 12 implants was pretty much painless for the amount of work they did, and they scheduled everything with my dentist and the lab so it was all done at the same time. I feel absolutely blessed that I found them!
