"This is an amazing Endodontics office and are very down to earth with all their patients. The doc delivers first class service and takes their time with each patient even during critical situations. They perform outstanding work and make you feel super comfortable during your visit. I recommend West Seattle endodontics to anyone who needs to see an Endodontist. They are the office to go to and will cure any dental problem you are currently having or had. If you are ever in West Seattle and need a great Endodontist, go to West Seattle Endo!"Ron S.
"I can see by prior reviews that my praise for West Seattle Endodontics is pretty well-known but as a "first-time" recipient of a root canal, I would never pick another office to go to.......They were kind, helpful, informative and efficient and the staff couldn't have been nicer or more professional.
This is the model for all others as far as I am concerned AND my root canal went off without a hitch. I needed no pain medication and was back to normal the next day.
The doctor even called me later to see how I was doing!
I don't easily give 5-star reviews but this one is very well-deserved."Todd A.
"I can't possibly say enough positive words about my experience with these wonderful people. As someone with a lifelong fear of dental work, they made my first root canal (at almost 50) easy and painless. I was terrified going in, but was immediately put at ease, and felt genuinely cared-for and safe. No pain afterwards. Will definitely go back if I ever need more endodontic work. Highly recommended."Sam O.
