"Root Canales aren't like in the 70' anymore! Stop been afraid"



"The doctor who saw me was great. Her assistant was excellent and they made the experience less traumatic than the crown procedure I had somewhere else that sent me there for a root canal in the first place. The only reason I took a star off is because when I called a few days later to ask something the receptionist was not helpful. I simply told her that I wanted to know what the doctor thought about my primary dentist seeing me 7 weeks after the root canal to permanently close it and I wanted to know if the doctor thought it was too long and if I needed to see someone else sooner than 7 weeks. "Look, all we say is that you have to see someone between 4-6 weeks after," that's all the receptionist said. And, she went on to repeat that. I was never told that specifically by anyone and I just wanted to know of whatever is on my tooth would hold until then. So, she repeated it once more. I kinda lost my patience and said thank you and hung up. I mean, can you write down what I said and simply ask the dentist and give me a call back? I would 100% go back there for treatment because the people who treated me were professionals, but this call was not great."



"Fantastic experience here! No pain during my procedure. Respectful, skilled, and informative staff. Great attitudes and a clean and calm facility. Very pleased 🙂"



"I highly recommend Endodontic Associates. Even before I walked in the door Dr Yasmin Basseghi said hello to me. I didn't know she was the doctor who would be doing my root canal but it put me at ease. All the staff are great! Dr Yasmin Basseghi is an excellent Dr. I have had a lot of dental work done and I could tell she is one of the best. No pain during or after my root canal."



"I called for an emergency root canal. I love out of state and they got me in the next day and then called me back with a cancel to see if I wanted to come in sooner. From the time I walked in the door I was greeted and treated so nice. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Dr Yasmine Basseghi was so sweet and checked on me throughout my procedure making certain I was comfortable. All the staff are nice and friendly. I highly recommend this office!"
