First, thank you Dr. Garon and I hope you have a great year
I went to Dr Garon for an emergency visit, after receiving a same day appointment from an understanding and very pleasant person on the phone. I was nervous, being a former RDA in the 1980s. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, I felt true concern for the best outcome and compassion for a somewhat dying tooth. I neglected a broken tooth as insurance coverage makes it tough to keep up with the expense of dental treatment. I wasn't sure what kind of insurance coverage I had, as my first concern was tooth pain. I asked that we just go forward with immediate treatment w/o insurance nonsense. I had the nerve removed and 3 canals cleaned out and ready for root canals (next appt). It was painful because of the necrotic state of the nerve, but, I felt it easy to trust Dr Garon during the procedure. I would highly recommend Dr Garon. I've heard a lot of nonsense being told to me, as a potential patient, by other dental offices while I was seeking out emergency dental care. Not one of the other dental offices could squeeze me in same day and/or said that I needed an endodondist(specialty dentist for root canals). From my experience, all General Dentists have the capability, knowledge and training to do most procedures. Dr Garon's not finished with what needs to be done, but, her office staff and her abilities have prompted me to share my experience & opinion. The office is clean and charming, as she has the old sling arm dental chairs (cool). I believe, out of the 5 dentists I'd called yesterday and my former downtown dentist, I found only one compassionate dental office yesterday. I'll let you know how my crown looks. On the last note: The emergency visit price was so compassionately reasonable I could've hugged them all. ���� The only reason it's a 4 Star review, is it was my first spot., and I'm looking forward to giving her 5 stars when it all finished.
