Patient Testimonials


Dr. Peter Spanganberg at Sonoma Oral & Facial Surgery must be the best oral maxillofacial surgeon in the state of Arizona. He is a miracle worker. I say this because he was an answer to our prayers. He made what was said by others to be impossible, possible. A loved one, was plagued with severe dental problems for decades, and suffered severe bone loss due to an underlying medical condition. She was told by three other oral surgeons that she was not a candidate for dental implants because of the severe bone loss. She was without hope, in a great deal of pain, unable to chew or eat, had difficulty speaking, and suffering mentally and physically from it. One of her previous oral surgeon’s referred to Dr. Spanganberg of Sonoma Oral & Facial Surgery, because Dr. Spanganberg had earned a reputation of success in treating extremely complex oral and facial, dental, and medical conditions and serious facial injuries. Sonoma Oral & Facial Surgery, got her in the very next business day. After reviewing X-rays and other dental/medical history, Dr. Spanganberg said he could absolutely place dental implants, with no problem. He explained how it could be done with new implant technology available, and alternative positioning of the implants to adapt to even the least available bone, as well as restoring new bone. And he did exactly that. His work spoke even louder than his words. He did what he said he would do, and more. Not only did he do it, but he did it all in one day€¦an entire reconstruction of both upper and lower bone, jaw, including removal of failed implants from prior surgeries. She left that day with fixed healing dentures, which she will wear until everything is healed, and then the permanents will be fixed in place. He made himself accessible for questions evenings, weekends, pre-op and post-op. His office staff and dental assistances were professional, kind, resourceful and highly competent. Dr. Peter Spanganberg is committed, reassuring, positive, confident, and highly skilled, and competent. He had a plan, and it was to succeed. He is a Surgeon whose greatest marketing tool, is the patients whose lives he has changed for the better, and for the rest of their lives. Thank-you Dr. Peter Spanganberg at Sonoma Oral & Facial Surgery our family will be forever grateful.

When I called for a consultation, the wait was over a month, but Nancy in the front office assured me that if I was in serious pain, they would fit me in. When my pain became difficult to manage, they fit in me and told me not to eat after midnight, in case surgery was warranted. I was seen within a few minutes and found the staff and Dr. Spanganberg to be kind, down-to-earth and understanding that I am a total coward. He felt it was best for my tooth and for my “mental health” to get my three problem teeth removed that day. He thoroughly explained the procedure, the anesthesia and the after-care. After I was home that night, the doctor called (on a Friday night!) to check up on me. I happened to have an easy recovery, but even without that, I felt that doctor’s chair side manner helped me get over my intense fear of dental work. I cannot recommend Dr. Spanganberg enough!

Working in the dental field I had heard of many different practices around the Valley but Sonoma definitely stood out and sounded like the right place. I couldn’t have had a better experience! From the friendly staff upfront and in the back office, to the wonderful and understanding Dr. Spanganberg. Everyone was able to answer any of my questions and concerns and more than willing to help with any of my needs. I would recommend this place to anyone with oral and facial surgery needs. I am so thankful for everything they have done and the experience I had.

More There are times we all need to use an oral surgeon. This is not something to look forward to but it has to be done to stay healthy. My husband needed a few extractions and was dreading the process and possible after issues. Our first consultation put us at complete ease. Dr. Spanganberg was amazing, he went over the whole process and what to expect. The staff was very friendly, understanding and gracious. They got us in fast to accommodate insurance needs and the whole experience was amazing. Even though we had a prescription for pain killers, to our surprise there was absolutely no after pain to deal with. My husband was very glad he came here. If you must have oral surgery, we highly recommend this Doctor and staff, they were GREAT!

I had to get some teeth pulled and was not real thrilled about being there but the whole staff made it a much better experience than I was expecting. Dr. Spanganberg is excellent and the assistants were all very friendly and funny. They were joking with me the whole time and even remembered me when I went back for the follow-up visit. I will refer everyone I know here!

Like everyone else, I don’t really enjoy having work done on my teeth or mouth. With that said, I was informed by my dentist that I needed to have my wisdom teeth surgically removed; needless to say, I was not looking forward to it!

Well, let me tell you- It was GREAT. The entire staff at Sonoma Oral and Facial Surgery are great- especially the doctor and his assistants. I felt comfortable throughout the entire consultation.

When it came to the day of the “big pull” everything went as planned. My molars were pretty impacted but the surgery was a resounding success. Absolutely everything I was told would happen, or I would feel, was 100% accurate. No surprises!

My follow-up appointments have also been great. I healed well and no longer have pain with my teeth.
