My wife needs to have her wisdom teeth extracted and we don't have any insurance right now and wondering if anyone knows any cheap dental clinics in the Tampa area that we can have these pulled?

We just moved here this past weekend really don't know any of the area yet. (We live in Apollo Beach)

Thanks in advance.

Most general dentists will do it.

However, I had my bottom wisdoms pulled by a general dentist in 2005, IIR. I STILL have tons of scar tissue, and they butchered the job. I had to constantly go into the office to have my wounds cleaned out (sutures, food, etc falling into holes). Took about a month to heal to the point that I could comfortably eat.

In 2008 I had my tops pulled by an oral surgeon. Really, really wish I would have done that with my bottoms. Don't regret it at all, and I highly recommend him to all that are looking for an oral surgeon. Took half the healing time, and he even called the house the night that I had one pulled (two separate extractions). Also gives a light "discount" if you have the second pulled in a certain frame of time. Literally no scarring. Amazing guy, with great bedside manners.
