Dr. Shlom is awesome!! He always writes a personal “thank you” note after my treatments & the office staff are professional & friendly…P.S. –the mint-scented gas masks are the best!
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontics, is required when tooth decay has broken through the outer enamel and infected the heart of the tooth. What happens when a tooth is infected right in the center? Aside from causing excruciating pain, an infected tooth may require extraction, as the nerves of the tooth are slowing dying. Because of the pain, many patients opt for an extraction as a quick fix. While extraction may remove the offending tooth and end the associated discomfort, it is not the best option in the long term.
Removing your natural teeth leaves gaps, which ultimately causes your other teeth to compensate by shifting. These subtle shifts can eventually affect your bite and lead to a number of other dental concerns. Our doctors and the team at Waterford Family Dental Care prefer to save your natural teeth with root canal treatment. Root canal treatment can clear the infection, allowing you to keep your tooth firmly planted where it belongs.

Dr. Shlom and the staff are very patient and knowledgeable. He was extremely patient, calming and quick with my nervous son’s tooth extraction. I love the atmosphere and the care that my child receives here.Lynell McKay Doyle
Honestly the best dentist around i have seen all 3. Although you may have to wait it is well worth the time spent! They have helped me over come so many fears and helped me get back on track with a healthy oral lifestyle! Love each and every one of the staff!Chelsea Stothers
I got some work done on Monday. First time visit. I was not expecting to get the work done that day at all! Dr. Shlom and his team were great! I got my mail today and received a hand written letter from Dr. Shlom saying I did great and hoped I wasn’t in too much pain. Also if I needed anything to give him a call. Let’s just say he now has my husband and I as clients for life!Heidi Tottingham
I was terrified about all the Root Canal stories. As mine was going on, the Doc stopped & I asked how much longer (waiting for this so called pain) & he said “We are done”! I was amazed. They worked with me on payments, are always friendly but unfortunately, I have moved out of the area & have NOT got my teeth cleaned & will not do so until I can get to this place…….I have had to many issues in my life with Dentists & now I found a GOOD one, I will wait! Thank you all & hope to see you soon. S.K.Shawn Bird-Kowalske
Great dental office, have been going there for years. My wife has gone there since she was little and now our kids (8 and 6) go as well. And they have no fear of going to this office.Terrence Williams
