I was in the medical field for over 30 years before retirement. Dr Spitz is among the most competent, caring, and professional person I have ever dealt with. I had a root canal done today and it could not have gone better! I would not even think about going anywhere else for endodontic care.

I have had a lot of dental work done over the years (crowded teeth, motorcycle accident) and have spent many hours "in the chair"! And I will say that the root canal that I had was the best experience I have EVER had!!!!! Not only was everyone very professional, but Dr. April was excellent!! I really don't want any more dental work done...but if I have to, this is where I want to be for it!

I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Spitz. She was very friendly and reassuring. She and her staff could sense that I was nervous, so they constantly asked if I was doing okay. This was a much better experience than my previous root canal years ago. If I ever need another root canal, I wouldn't mind coming here due to the way I was treated. Thanks so much!

Mine was one of the best ongoing experiences I've ever had in any dental office. The entire staff is friendly and professional. And Dr. Spitz is professional, patient and thorough. She takes the time needed to ensure an accurate diagnosis and optimal treatment. She explains things clearly so that you understand what's happening and what your options are. I'll definitely be returning if I ever need another root canal.

Dr.Spitz gave me my smile back!! Dr. Spitz is caring and compassionate she makes you feel relaxed while in her office. Dr. Spitz explains everything about your procedure and gives you options for your care. I had a root canal, followed by internal bleach injections to change a discolored tooth. I am more than happy with the results. The hygienists and office staff are excellent. I also appreciate the phone call to see how you are feeling the day after the procedure.
