What an amazing office! Our now 2 year old son (11 months at the time) was referred to Dr. Dashow and his team after our pediatrician had concerns with the shape of his head. Ultimately, our son needed major skull surgery to correct Sagittal Craniosynostosis. What a blessing it was to have Dr. Dashow perform the surgery right here in Anchorage. Each step of the way, Dr. Dashow expressed compassion and empathy, understanding how stressful of a time this is for the patient, as well as the parents.
As they were preparing to take our son to the operating room on the day of surgery, Dr. Dashow looked my wife in the eyes and said “we’ll take care of him as if he was our own.” In situations where the surgery seems harder on the parents than the patient, hearing Dr. Dashow say this really helped put our minds at ease during the 8+ hour procedure.
The staff at the office is wonderful – always friendly and professional. They spent countless hours on the phone with insurance working to get the procedure pre-authorized and made sure the financial side was taken care of. And they were always more than happy to let our two kiddos dig through the "treasure box" at the end of each follow-up visit.
For such an unexpected referral to Alaska Center for Oral and Facial Surgery, we simply cannot say enough about this office. Thank you Dr. Dashow and team, we could not have asked for a more positive, professional, or compassionate experience. -Brett & Chelsey P.
