"Walked in with a terrible toothache. A couple of days later, I was in the care of the most caring, knowledgeable people. They gave me options of what I could do and answered every dumb question I could think of....LOL. I was terrified to get a root canal because of all of the horrifying stories that I was told. But, after talking with Dr. Richardson and her staff, I decided to have it done. I have a long standing fear of dental work but I literally slept through nearly the entire procedure!! Enough said! Don’t listen to me, check them out for yourself."- N.M. / Google / Nov 01, 2018
