Barringer & Crestetto Drs
Dr Barringer is an excellent doctor! I'm terrified of the dentist and spent months dreading the extraction of my 4 impacted wisdom teeth. Other than complications due to allergic reactions to the antibiotic and painkiller, the procedure went by without a hitch.The last last thing I remember was getting the iv needle inserted and then being back at home. lol! He has excellent bedside manner and actually cares. I have recommended all my friends and coworkers who need wisdom teeth removed to see him.

Barringer & Crestetto Drs
Dr. Crestetto is a highly qualified, very skilled oral surgeon with a heart of gold. He always goes above and beyond the call of duty to make sure his patients get not only the best dental care he can possibly give them, but also the very best personal care he can give them.He always greets every patient with a smile ~ you never feel like a "number" when you go to see him for an appointment. The experience is more like visiting an old friend that happens to be a skilled dentist.

Very nice facility, but disorganized and inefficient. Clerical staff's attitude to the public borders on arrogance and shows little regard for the truth.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
