-Quickly Appointed and Scheduled

My name is Bryan and I currently live in Fort Mill, SC. About six weeks ago, I began to have some pain in my lower left jaw and the pain grew increasingly worse over the following weeks. After weeks of being in pain, I decided to contact Carolina Periodontics & Endodontics whom I had heard of from a personal friend. I was able to quickly get in to see Dr. Rachel. On the day of my appointment, I anxiously arrived to be greeted by a warm and welcoming staff that put me at ease. The staff took a few x-rays and Dr. Rachel was able to diagnose a tooth that needed a root canal. The root canal was quick, efficient, and most importantly painless. Dr. Rachel did such an fantastic job and I have been pain free ever since the treatment. The staff was very helpful in making a follow up appointment with a general dentist. I even received a phone call to check on me a few days after my procedure. Dr. Rachel and her staff did such an amazing job with the root canal and making me feel at ease. I am so thankful for them.
