Nobody wants to get a Root Canal. I’ll tell you this I have had several over the years and this by far was the best experience I have ever had. I was in and out of the office in record time. The quality of work cannot be matched. The staff was AMAZING. They made sure I was extremely comfortable throughout the entire procedure. I kept waiting for the pain to hit. I’m still waiting. It was Virtually painless. I recommend Palmetto Endodontics to anyone looking for a PAIN FREE PROFESSIONAL Dental experience.

From start to finish my experience was excellent. Dr. McEntire and the staff made me feel welcome and relaxed. The procedure though long, was done carefully with a break for my comfort. I feel assured that the very best was done for me and my unhealthy tooth. Thanks to all.

I have always had a fear of dental work. Dr. McEntire put my mind at ease, explained everything he was doing during the root canal and made me feel beyond comfortable. I am grateful to both he and his staff for the work done and overall experience.

Patient Review

As the son of a retired dentist who was known for his patient care, I am extremely critical of what good dental care should look (and feel) like. I've got to say that Dr. McEntire and his friendly and professional staff at the Summit Office blew me away. Who knew that the "dreaded root canal" could be so easy and almost totally painless? Dr. McEntire is skilled with his tools, but it's the way he takes the time to put you at ease by calmly explaining to you what he is doing that sets him apart! Thanks!

Dr Mayes and his staff were very pleasant and helpful. The last time I got a root canal I had to come in the office three times (not this dentist). Dr Mayes was very considerate of my pain level,got me scheduled quickly and explained everything he was doing as he performed the procedure. I definitely would go back!!!
