Dr. Ward was the most patient Dr. Ive had. I was very nervous about the procedure. He explained everything to me before and during the procedure. I would recommend him to anyone, especially those with children. HE WAS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!

Never ever having had a root canal previously, I was somewhat terrified of the procedure beforehand, especially considering its rather fearsome reputation. However, the dentist did such an excellent and thorough job of explaining each step of the procedure while he was performing it, that I was quickly put at ease and had all of my concerns allayed. This was especially appreciated, and in sharp contrast to many other dentists I have encountered who say little to nothing while they work, and make no effort to reassure the patient!

Dr. Ward was extremely thorough during my root canal. He took the extra time and steps to assure that all infected nerve tissues were removed .
