Is tooth pain a daily issue?

In addition to causing pain, discomfort, and anxiety, tooth pain can escalate into fever, inflammation, or gum disease. In severe cases, tooth pain can be a warning sign of a serious health condition such as a heart or lung disease.

I felt so much pain in my tooth. I was fearing the worst. I needed a root canal and Dr. Shmara did it. He was gentle, kind, and made the procedure painless. He changed my mind about being afraid of dentists. Thank you!

Dr. Shmara was a god send! My previous dentist did a botched job on my teeth. I was pleased with the “clean up” Dr. Shmara did! I’m happy with my bridge, and now he will do a few more crowns that need to be replaced:) the staff is amazing and the office is clean. I loved the windows that look to the outside very relaxing unlike boxed rooms with no windows.

This one star is being generous. After being with this dentist office for almost 30 years, they cancel appointments last minute, that where made over 6 months ago and then can't get you in for up to 3 months later. This is not the first time this has happened to my family. Terrible Service. My family and I will not be returning after the terrible service after all these years.

Finally a dentist I don’t fear going to. I have an extreme amount of work to be done, but Dr Shmara explains it all very well and works out a treatment plan you are both comfortable with. Getting dental work done is never fun or enjoyable but he makes sure you are comfortable and not in pain. The entire staff is great. I am thankful for Dr Shmara & his staff!
