"A big thank you to all at Endodontic Associates. You responded to my request for a check up within 2 hours. I had an appointment 2 days later. My definitely best dental experience ever!! Speaking as a reluctant dental patient, I appreciate the calm ,relaxing surroundings and your professional approach. I will recommend you to friends."



"Had the unfortunate experience of developing an abscess in a tooth that was recently crowned. I happened to be traveling abroad at the time. The team at Endodontic Associates welcomed me upon my urgent return on a 16 hour plane flight, immediately began work to provide much needed relief from an infection that had developed. They finished the root canal a few days later once things settled down. Top-notch care from a compassionate and knowledgeable team. Extremely grateful and appreciative of Endodontic Associates professional care."
