I put off having a root canal for a year due to fear of the unknown. A friend who was DEATHLY afraid of going to the dentist recommended this doctor. Office looks like Beverly Hills, staff wonderful, doctor superb. Was like I was at a spa, no pain, very relaxed environment, chair is great, I could have fallen asleep---and I was not given anything except a shot for numbing. Should have gone sooner! The doctor explained everything, was very thorough and diligent. Great experience...if you have to have a root canal!
