I had a abscess and needed a root canal procedure in a back molar. The initial needle is a big fear of mine. He placed a topical numbing agent on the site, and suggested maybe to close my eyes for the shot, which I did, I don't even want to see the needle. Obviously the shot wasn't pleasant, but it was nothing like the old days, where it feels like the needle is scraping against your jawbone. He gave an initial shot for a few seconds, and waited a few more minutes before giving the rest. That way I was good and numb, hence, virtually no pain with the dreaded shot. At the start of the root canal procedure, he asked "Do you feel anything?" I motioned "A little." By that, I meant I felt it slightly, not really pain. which I would have been fine with. Not good enough for him, he said "Hold on a minute, we'll take care of that." And I felt literally nothing for the rest of the procedure. Before I knew it, the root canal was finished, and the temporary filling was in. I'm ready for my regular dentist to fit a crown. I've had a few root canals, and this was by far the easiest one. Dr. Broome has even been mentioned by a local radio talk show host as "The only guy I go to if I need a root canal." I should also mention, the entire staff is top notch. I arrived at 7:30am, finished within an hour, and was back at work by 9. That included getting my prescription for anti-biotics filled down the street at Walgreens.
My appreciation and thanks to Dr.Broome's for his ethos of caring, and sincerity.Kudos to Dr.Broome and his dental hygienist Debbie and his office staff particularly with respect to their patients oral health and care. I had a root canal today on a tooth. Dr.Broome's was gentle to the touch while administering the shots. In fact (we) Dr.Broome,his assistant Debbie and I had engaged in a topic of interest before and during the actual surgery,they continued of course interacting with the social topic while I was having my procedure done, putting me in such a relaxed position,I actually closed my eyes relaxed and enjoyed the remainder of the conversation during the remaining time of the procedure. I had a moment to laugh,share and take a selfie video in between. Moments later he performed the root canal with such poise I didn't even realize I was done when he sat me up. It was painless! I hope to not ever need a root canal again, but if I do, I wouldn't hesitate to give this office a call. Dr.Broome is super personable,the receptionist was pleasant,as was Debbie the hygienist that assisted Dr.Broome. The office is beautiful,clean,and updated . I can't say enough about the efficiency and precision this doctor achieved. If you or anyone you know who needs endodontic work, send them here! I will definitely be recommending this office to others. Dr.Broome made my root canal, pleasant. Definitely NOT painful or traumatic. I feel no pain, just normal numbness that wears off after a few hours. Impressive service and post operative care,the doctors office called later in the evening to check in and make sure everything was OK. It is. Hours later, still no pain. I was accommodated before leaving the facility with two prescriptions in the event of infection or pain. I opted for less over the counter and was provided Advil ibuprofen in case of any slight discomfort. Thanks for getting my smile back on track, Dr.Broome!
Called Dr. and staff Mon 8 am on reco from family dentist as I had a painful infected abcess in tooth 18 and needed a root canal. My dentist Dr. Jay Suverkrup noted it would be a difficult procedure due to calcification in one of the three canals. The staff was professional, expedient and personable from my 1st phone call. They got me in in the afternoon and the whole procedure took 90 minutes. Everything was perfect. Due to Sjogren's Syndrome I have had many complex dental visits and this was one of the best. I was treated with up most respect, kindness and top care. Dr. Broome is a top endodontist. He is building a new office space across street that will be done soon and add the 'spa like' decor more sound control. The staff called me this afternoon to check on me and gave me a contact number if I have any concerns. I wish the office did more procedures so I could choose them for other perio needs. Convenient I70 and I75 location by Lakewood Ranch with pull up parking!
Dr. Broom was outstanding! Two years ago, he performed a route canal in the back of my mouth. I have TMJ and it is painful to open my mouth wide. Dr. Broom completed the route canal in a very short period of time with very minimal discomfort. I highly recommend him!
The staff is very friendly and organised. Everything done on time and fast. Dr. Broome re-did my root canal (the first treatment was done long ago in a different country), and the treatment failed. I do not blame him, this happens. He followed me up without any charge, and he then gave me a big discount on the next procedure to fix the failed root canal. It was successful. Overall iam satisfied with the service.
