Dental cleanings rarely are memorable but the one I received from Lacy Glick stood out for its professionalism.
Dr. Bernstein and his staff are wonderful! He redid a root canal for me which my previous regular dentist had done improperly. I have very complicated teeth anatomy and it is very hard to work with. But Dr. Bernstein was more than up for the challenge and did a great job repairing my tooth. He went above and beyond to help me out! Thank you to Dr Bernstein and staff for all your hard work!!
Dr. Bernstein's office was very helpful for a root canal I had to have done last minute. I would recommend them for anyone needing a root canal. The staff and dr were very helpful and kind.
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.
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.
Dr. Bernstein was absolutely outstanding. He explained very clearly what he was going to do and what he did. He is extremely articulate, very confident and an absolute perfectionist. Less than an hour from Ocala. Definitely worth the drive. And his staff? Ditto to everything I have said about "Duane" as he introduced himself. I would give he and his staff a 10 if I could!!!Peter Volonino 03/05/2015
This is the most fantastic dentist I have ever gone to. . . I returned from a business trip in incredible pain needing a root canal. Dr. Bernstein stayed open late to help me because he would not allow someone in so much pain to continue to suffer. He worked on my tooth until I was stable. In addition, his use of technology enables you to understand and see exactly what he is doing or needs to do, He is most concerned about the well-being of his patient. I am very grateful that Dr. Bernstein works in Gainesville. I would send anyone needed endodontic work to him with my blessing.
I am terrified of dentists!! With that being said, my recent root canal experience by Dr. Bernstein at Haile Endodontics may have gone a little way towards reducing my dentist-phobia. His staff is really nice and professional. Dr. Bernstein is very nice and did not hurt me. He has a large television mounted on the ceiling above the chair so that you can watch a movie or listen to music while he works on your teeth…he even turns it up loud enough so that you can hear it over that menacing drill noise. It was the most pleasant dental experience I have had ever. If you ever have the misfortune to need a root canal, I would highly recommend Dr. Bernstein.
Besides Dr Berstein being so nice, he put me at ease, explained the process both before and after, and there was NO pain! And, I never expected to be watching a new movie while he was fixing my tooth! I was referrred to Dr, Bernstein for a root canal, and having root canals in the past by other dentists, I was anxious about it being a long and painful experience. But it was the total opposite! He really goes the extra mile.
