Great experience. Entire staff great. Dr. Jett was amazing. Explained everything, very compassionate, and did great work. But most importantly, he made sure I was comfortable through out the entire process. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Patient Review

I was referred to Palmetto Endodontics for a probable root canal by my regular dentist. My appointment with P.E. was the same day I saw my regular dentist. At P.E., Dr. Jett did a quick examination, and laid-out my options. I chose the root canal, which he promptly took care of within the hour. There was no pain during the procedure. Dr. Jett was very efficient and thorough with the entire procedure. He, the technical staff, and office personnel were very nice and helpful throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Palmetto Endodontics to anyone with endodontal issues.

Patient Review

Palmetto Endodontics deserves an award. From the moment you step into their office you are warmly greeted. The staff is wonderful. Once you head to the back, the experience is even better. This may seem simple, but the dental chairs are the most comfortable I’ve ever experienced. My endodontic retreatment was well done by Dr Jett. He explained what was going to be done and what options I had. When it was all said and done I had no more pain after it healed. I even received a phone call from a staff member to see how I was doing after the procedure. It was the best dental procedure I’ve ever experienced. Thank you Palmetto Endodontics
