I had two of my wisdom teeth removed and it was extremely painful. During my first visit, Dr. Hawkins assured me that it wouldn't hurt. He also talked me out of being put to sleep because he said it would be more expensive. I appreciate that he was looking out for my best interest but I wouldn't have minded paying extra as long as I didn't have to go through that much pain. Dr. Hawkins is a real nice guy but that wasn't fun at all.
