I could not recommend Dr. Bernstein enough. Prior to the 2 root canals I had with him, I had severe dental phobia because of a previous encounter with an incompetent dentist. I usually take prescribed medicine to ease my nerves but I decided not to for this appointment because I had a meeting later that day. Dr. Bernstein was so excellent I did not even consider needing drugs for my second root canal with him. Not only was he comforting, he was able to explain in simple terms what he was doing and why. His staff was also amazing, they made me feel welcome and comfortable. Scheduling was also so easy. They were able to get me in the next day for my first appointment and on an evening for my second. They were very willing to work with my schedule. I am a firm believer that it is worth it to travel for quality care. Dr. Bernstein uses technology in his office that not all dentist/endodontists have (I know, I unfortunately have had root canals before) I would recommend any one in the state to make the trip. I know in the future if I ever need a root canal, no matter where I live at the time, I will not see anyone but Dr. Bernstein.

I had been having issues not getting profoundly numb enough to fill a cavity. After 3 tries it was decided I may need a root canal. After looking online I found the most amazing reviews from Dr. Bernstein. One person stated they would drive back to Gainesville from Miami to have any future work done. That says a lot! And you know what, they are right. My first consult with Dr. B yielded a CT scan where he was able to detect some abnormal issues in a few of my teeth overall which would not be detected on X-ray alone. After talking with him and doing some diagnostic we figured out it was actually a different tooth than I thought originally that was the main problem! I will say that I was most concerned that I would not achieve profound anesthesia and therefore it would hurt much like the small fillings. Not only did he get my mouth perfectly numb but there was NO need for any additional shots (which almost never happens with me). The root canal was a breeze!
On Tuesday afternoon I saw my regular dentist in Miami with a very painful molar; he advised I needed a root canal. Since I was leaving the next morning on a trip to Orlando and Gainesville, I decided to wait it until at least the following week for the root canal. Thursday night the pain became so intense that I realized that waiting was no longer an option. I found Haile Endodontics on the web, saw the excellent reviews and Dr. Bernstein’s credentials, and decided to call Friday morning. They were willing to accept a last-minute appointment for a new patient to come in late on a Friday afternoon, and they stayed late to take care of me. I woke up Saturday morning feeling great. I’ve had other root canals, and I have absolutely no question that I was in excellent hands. I’ll drive the 5 hours from Miami to Gainesville to be treated by Dr. Bernstein if I need future endodontic work.
