N. James Strull, D.M.D.

“Dr. Jim” has seen a lot during his decades as one of the top oral surgeons in the state. “One thing that hasn’t changed is how you should treat your patients,” Dr. Jim says. “We take really good care of our patients. First, we sit down with them and chat about their family. Then, every one of our staff goes out of his or her way to make the patients feel at home. There’s never, ever a big rush.”  Dr. Jim has had the pleasure to treat generations of families—grandparents, parents and grandchildren. “We’ve built our reputation at Strull Oral Surgery as being a fun place to visit and work,” Dr. Jim says. “Our employees are also like family – some have been with us for 20 years, 30 years and even 40 years.”

"My husband was referred to Dr. Strull this morning because he required advanced treatment. The office was able to see him immediately. The office staff were gracious and welcoming. All questions were addressed. Dr. Strull took the time for a thorough review of my husband's fairly complicated medical history and to address any further questions we might have. His expert medical treatment is delivered with kindness and compassion. We were very fortunate to have been referred to this top notch practice."

"I was made to feel comfortable, even by giving me a blanket to use! Dr. Strull (the father) was so wonderful with his humor and his bed-side manner! I will return to him in the future if needed!"

"I was an unscheduled patient this morning at the office and appreciated that Dr. Jim was able to see me. The support staff was cheerful, helpful, and seemed genuinely happy to be there—no grumbling undertones. I had a short wait before being set up in my room, where I was made to feel comfortable and relaxed. Dr. Jim carefully reviewed all if my medications and the reasons I was taking each before proceeding. He ascertained that I was well-numbed before beginning the extraction, and was as gentle as possible. Afterwards I received oral and written instructions on mouth and socket care for the next several days. If having a tooth pulled is on your bucket list, Dr. Jim is your man."

"I needed to have 2 teeth extracted today and what a pleasant experience I had! I chose Drs. Strull and Strull because of insurance so I wasn't sure what to expect. The moment we walked in we were treated with such kindness and professionalism. Dr. James was wonderful. Thanks to everyone!"
