Recently I had a root canal by Dr. Hale and I was very anxious. I have always had a sense of fear and anxiety going to dentist. I have a severe gag reflex and having work done is usually difficult and nerve racking! I couldn’t believe when I was finished as I didn’t feel a thing and not even the Novocain! I didn’t even gag! Wow, I have to say I’ve never had such a sense of relief knowing that I had such a good dental experience!The staff is very professional and very understanding of my fears and we’re so comforting! Dr. Hale is very knowledgeable and listens to all my concerns and I had ZERO pain! Thank you Dr. Hale and staff ! No more dental anxiety for me with Dr. Hale as my dentist! 5 stars and more!!
