  • "Staff was very friendly. Made me feel like I was at home. Dr did an amazing job. Barely felt anything during my root canal. Hopefully i wont have to get another root canal but if i do i will definitely be coming back."
    Nicole E.
  • "I needed an urgent root canal after a weekend of severe tooth pain and a sleepless night. Dr. Gordon was able to get me right in with short notice on a Monday! A root canal is nothing anyone looks forward to, but I was not in discomfort at any time. I kept waiting for the "bad part"...but it never happened! The doctor and staff were very professional and friendly. Much a much better experience than I was expecting! Thank you Dr. Gordon!"
    Larry H.
  • "I was referred here by my dentist since I needed a root canal and he couldn’t get me in for a few weeks. Dr. Gordon’s office called me the next day and set me up an appointment that week! The staff were very friendly and made sure I knew before anything started what my financial responsibilities would be, and throughout the entire root canal, Dr. Gordon would make sure I was doing okay (my face is an open book! and overall am happy to have been serviced here. Plus, my mouth feels SO much better! Thank you!"
    Emma M.
  • "I have been to Dr. Gordon’s practice twice, both times for a root canal. He is the perfect blend of professional and personable. His years of experience and expertise are unmatchable and when I am in his chair, I trust him with my care. He and his staff alike treat patients like family. I wish I could find a general dentist like Dr. Gordon! Thank you for fitting me into your busy schedule recently."
