Patient Review

No one enjoys the root canal process; however, if you need one go to Palmetto Endodonitics. All of their staff members are professional, skillful and caring. Dr McEntire was excellent. I feel fine one day after the procedure. No pain or soreness. I would recommend you make an appointment with them or ask your primary dentist to refer you to their practice if you need any of their services.
