Patient Review by Steve R

The root canal was nothing like I expected. I thought there would be more pain like that I have experienced in regular dental work where the anesthetic doesn't fully do the job. This was not the case, there was no pain whatsoever. Further, I always hate getting a shot in my gum and for many years I had all my dental work done without anesthetic. In later years I sucked it up and dealt with it. For my root canal, Dr. Stanley injected the anesthetic very slowly and this decreased the pain to almost nothing. This one thing probably made the whole experience great for me...well, that and getting the tooth fixed so I had no pain from it anymore. I have another root canal yet to be done and I actually look forward to going in and seeing Dr. Stanley and the staff. They do truly great work. ATTENTION: PLEASE REMOVE THIS SECTION WITH ALL CAPS BEFORE POSTING THE REVIEW - ON MY COMPUTER, THE STARS DON'T SHOW UP. I WAS ABLE TO SEE FIVE BLUE SQUARE BLOCKS BY DRAGGING THE CURSOR OVER THE AREA WHERE THEY ARE LOCATED. I TRIED TO CLICK ON THE FIFTH BLOCK, HOPING THIS WAS EQUIVALENT TO THE FIFTH STAR - AT ANY RATE, MY RATING IS FIVE STARS ON BOTH SECTIONS, OVERALL SATISFACTION AND OVERALL DOCTOR EVALUATION. THANK YOU.

From the time you walk in the door, everyone makes you feel at ease/comfortable. The entire staff (Receptionist-Check-In/Check-Out, Assisting Staff and Doctors) are all so friendly and kind. I would highly recommend Piedmont Endodontics!

Patient Review by Annette B

Both Dr. Stanley and his assistant (Sherry) were extremely attentive and did everything possible to make sure that i was comfortable during the entire procedure. Dr. Stanley explained every step of the process, while efficiently and painlessly administering anesthetic and completing the root canal treatment. Both he and Sherry explained the post - procedure care / ibuprofen dosage to prevent any possible pain or discomfort in the next 2 days. I would give these great professionals an A+ !

Patient Review by Gina M

Everyone at the office was friendly and professional and really seemed to love their job. Sherry and Dr. Stanley were kind, compassionate, and worked swiftly but thoroughly. They are truly both great at their job. Felt as though I’d know them for years. Thank you for great care. I would definitely choose Dr. Stanley again and would not want to see anyone else. (completely painless for me). Great experience to be a root canal.

Patient Review by Kasey P

Dr. Stanley was so kind, gentle and informative throughout my entire first root canal experience. He talked me through the process before, during and after to ensure that I knew exactly what was going on and what to expect. The numbing shot on the roof of my mouth was the worst part and it barely even hurt because he applied a cold, dry ice solution (I think) to numb that area before the initial prick. He went a step above any previous dentist I've received numbing shots from and made this time as pain free as possible. This was my first root canal and from his awesome work and gentle approach to everything it's by far the best experience I've ever had with any dental work. I highly recommend Dr. Stanley and I will definitely be requesting Dr. Stanley for any procedures that may arise in the future!

Patient Review by Bill L

For all of us who have had "anxiety attacks" about the prospect of having a root canal.....fear no more! Will Stanley, D.D.S., M.S. was my doctor and I strongly recommend him to anyone! His assistants, Megan Ivey and Sherry Hoover were as equally as highly skilled at their profession and were quick to remind me that there would be "no pain." Both ladies have outstanding concern and care for their patients. I actually had two visits stemming from a problem away from the office, one in Kernersville and another in Greensboro and everyone at both sites were excellent professionals. My visits to Piedmont Endodontics was as fine as any medical situation I have ever encountered. Highly recommend these three wonderful professionals! Bill Leatherman

Patient Review by Janet W

As a repeat patient of Dr. Stanley's, I am always amazed at how calm he makes one feel. He is compassionate about his work and I trust his opinions 100%. During my root canal, he and Meghan were top notch. Leave all anxiety at the door with these two as they will always take very good care of you! It's also comforting to receive a phone call the next day to see how you are doing. Customer service is wonderful and appreciated.

Patient Review by Jerry H

Dr. Stanley was very forthcoming with information and wanted to ease any anxiety that I had as his patient which calmed me even more. He was easy to listen to and prepared me for the series of events for my procedure. I just wanted to take a minute to say Thank You Sir to you and your staff for my Dental Care today.

I've had root canals in the past that are the reason for my dentist anxiety, but this visit with Dr. Stanley by far was the best experience I've had in a dental office. Very friendly staff, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Patient Review by Cassandra T

Lisa helped me emotionally prepare for the procedure and she was pleasant. She eased my mind. Dr. Stanley was amazing. He thoroughly explained what was going to happen and I didn't feel like he was rushing. He made getting a root canal less stressful. I'm glad my dentist referred me to Piedmont Endodontics - everyone was very professional, patient and caring. I was surprised and now that the procedure is done, glad that they could see me within an a couple of hours of seeing my dentist. I don't think I could deal with the pain much longer.

Patient Review by Mike C

I've had many root canals and other endodontic treatments in my life, and NO practice has ever come close to being as nurturing, pain-free, modern and patient-centered as this one. If the other doctors are as good as the wonderful Dr. Stanley, I recommend this place wholeheartedly. I'd still rather have a hot-fudge sundae than a root canal, but ... my experience here was highly informative and totally pain-free.

Patient Review by Tommie R

I can't pick a favorite. The entire experience was the best ever. The root canal was nearly pain-free. I was given ear phones for music, reassurance throughout the entire process. I was informed that the procedure would take about 45 minutes--it seemed much shorter. I was offered juice, water, and coffee afterwards. The staff walked me to my car to be sure I was ok. If you need a root canal you couldn't go to a better office.

Patient Review by Myron J

Doctor Stanley is fun, easy to communicate with, and expert in doing root canals. I thoroughly enjoyed (!) visiting with him and his assistant. They both do a superb job of explaining what will go in and is going on. I have had root canals by 3 endodontists before, and they are simply the best!

Patient Review by Gail C

The caring personnel, complete education and answering all questions. Best of all, procedure was not painful (as I had feared) and completed right away. I am so thankful that I was scheduled as soon as I called regarding the referral/consultation, and procedure completed on the same day. Every encounter was a pleasure.
