Dr Ward was amazing. He was efficient. He was gentle with me and my anxiety with having root canals done. He stopped in between whatever he was doing and took x-rays to make sure he was doing everything correctly and on point. I did not feel a thing. For a root canal this was an exceptional experience. Thank you Dr Ward and staff for being wonderful.

I couldnt have been placed in better hands. Dr. Ward is eminently qualified and experienced in root canals. I would just say that it would be nice if he smiled--even just once. It would put patients at ease. Im sure he didnt mean to come off the way he did, but I felt like I was the last patient of the day, rather than the first--like he was a bit tired. Might just be his personality--low affect (?)--but thats a minor consideration considering the thorough job he did. Also, he had to deal with a polyp in one of my canals. He could not get around it to clean the entire canal.

I was extremely anxious about having my first root canal. Dr. Ward and his assistant communicated everything that they were going to do and helped ease my anxiety.
