Do you have anxiety when it comes to anything with your teeth? I know I do! So, when I was told that I needed a root canal I broke down into tears. For me, I couldn’t imagine anything worse.
I was referred to Irvine Endodontics and started my research to ensure I was making the right choice. I made an appointment, fear and all. For the first time in my life, I was disarmed by the environment, staff, and culture within this office. The staff was by far the most welcoming, warm, and accommodating to one’s needs. They truly tailored the experience to my situation and what I was able to handle on that given day. The staff was extremely patient and willing to literally hold my hand through the process. Dr. Michelle Lee is super informative, yet listened to what I needed and when it was all too much she would work with me. She is straightforward, caring, precise with her work, and knowledgeable. Her assistant, Nader was accommodating, reassuringly supportive, and calming. Bill, part of patient care, took time out to hold my hand and calm all my anxieties in regard to using laughing gas during the procedure. I left the office after all was said and done hugging almost every staff member and bummed that I wouldn’t be seeing them during my next visit to my dentist. I have to admit, I wish they did more than root canals because, for the first time in my life, I didn’t walk away feeling even more scared than when I walked in. So, if you have anxiety with teeth stuff and you want a place that puts your mind at ease, STOP – YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR PLACE! If I ever need another root canal, I will be back.
