"Dr. Spires is so gentle! He & his staff were great!!"-C.K.
"While no one really “relishes” the idea of a root canal, Dr. Spires and his staff are amazing. I saw him on Monday, April 8th for my procedure. Bear in mind I haven’t had any real dental “work” done since I had a cavity filled at 13. I’m 47.
Everyone was very friendly, accommodating and professional. They explained the entire procedure in detail as we went through it. The numbing process was virtually pain free and once he started working I felt absolutely nothing. I was in and out in under an hour and completely pain free (from propping my jaw open) within 2 days. Dr. Spires and his staff are simply wonderful."-C.J.
"Easy, peasy and a friendly demeanor and informative person."-D.G.
"I had not been to the dentist in several years & was super anxious about having a root canal. Dr Spires & his staff were super nice & very attentive. He explained each process that he did & made the whole process as painless as possible. Highly recommend!!"-M.H.
