This being my first root canal, to say I was nervous would be an understatement. Genuinely fearful would be more accurate. Like most of you, going to the dentist has always been a source of contention for me since childhood, eventually graduating to my list of ‘necessary evils’, like a bikini wax or going to the gym, that could blissfully be ignored, indefinitely. Of course, my fear eventually turned into procrastination, and after a year and a half of toggling between hot and cold shooting pain, I found myself with a broken, borderline-abscessed wisdom tooth. Something had to be done. I ended up choosing Dallas Endodontics from an endless list of candidates supplied by insurance because the name was familiar - I had seen them featured in D Magazine’s ‘Best Of Dallas’ issue last year. Now, 4 days post-op, I can’t imagine any other Endodontist in Texas, albeit Dallas, superseding this team’s caliber of professionalism, warmth or expertise. From the minute I walked into DE’s Greenville Ave. location, I felt welcome and safe, as if I was the only patient there and the only patient that mattered, and their only MO was to make sure I knew it. The office and procedure room was comfortable. Phyllis, the DA, was so accommodating and comforting, I knew I was in the best of hands right away. Aside from the obvious investment that DE has made into having the best and most advanced technology available (I literally could not hear any of the familiar scary sounds like grinding drills and teeth scrappers) and the time (start-to-finish, the entire procedure took 45 minutes!) - what made me promise myself right then and there to write this review, was the fact that I literally had NO pain, either during or after - and my doctor, Dr. Murat Ayik. Dr. Ayik is simply the best when it comes to Endodontics. An obvious expert in his field but with no pretention or hint of sadistic surprises that seems to allude many DDS’s, Dr. Ayik has a natural way of putting one at ease even under the most anxious circumstances, and delivering phenomenal results even despite it. Bottom line, if you have to get a root canal and prefer a pleasant, painless experience with no suffering or downtime – Dallas Endodontics is it.
Just went in for a root canal after getting a crown last week. Couldn't have been an easier experience. Almost no pain at all, it was quick and easy. The office is beautiful and the bed-side manner is top-knotch. If you're in pain, give Dr. Ayik a call.
My appointment was quick and amazing. Felt no pain at all and was fully informed on what to expect.
Performed a root canal the same day I had an exam. Explained the procedure and pricing thoroughly. Quick and painless initial appointment.
Called their office on Easter Sunday evening. Dr Garrett (not a service or employee) called me back within 15 min and scheduled me for Monday morning! Professional staff all around. Been there twice and love Dr Garrett. Won’t hesitate to go back. Highly recommended!
Dr Rakusin is simply amazing. I remember most of my life being told horrror stories about having a root canal done. I’ve now had two and it was the easiest dental procedure I can recall having done. He has so much patience for people like me who have much anxiety about dental procedures. Yesterday I went for my third root-canal and leading up to it I was in so much pain. I waited too long to deal with it (which I strong urge you not to do) and I woke up today with no pain and so relieved. If you are considering working with Dallas Endodontics, I can’t recommend them enough. I only have personal experience with Dr Rakusin but I’ve heard amazing possitive reviews about all on staff. Do yourself a favor and let these amazing professionals help you with your Endodontics needs. I promise you it will be painless and you will come out the other side happy you used them for your dental needs. I give Dr Rakusin the highest ratings possible. Thank you Dr Rakusin!!!
Dr. Ayik is great and definitely competent! The staff, as the other reviews state, can be a bit off putting however they still helped to get a doctor that was covered on our plan. The hygentients weren't that friendly. But all in all, a good experience.
Dr Wayne Scott and Dr Andrea Sauerwein referred me to Dr. Rakusin's group. As soon as I met Dr. R, I knew I was in good hands. He explained everything ahead of time and I was very at ease throughout the procedure.
Great Staff & Dr. Garrett is the best! Highly recommend!
I was definitely leery of root canals. There was no need for concern! After initial fears...it was a painless procedure!
