My dentist recommended me to a specialist for a root canal. Anyone have any good recommendations for this type of procedure?

I saw a great endodontist to repair a root canal that had become reinfected. His name is Dr. Sylvester Robinson, and his office is 46169 Westlake Dr., Suite 330, Sterling, VA 20165. Phone is 703-421-5363. I can't find a website for his Virginia practice, but here's his bio on another site. He is very gentle and has a calm, relaxing manner. Also important to me - his dental/office assistant was nice and competent.

I have had a great experience with Dr. Olga Fonseca in Dupont Circle. Her number is (202)887-5442. Very gentle and thorough. Her staff is nice, too.

I just had a root canal a few weeks ago. I was a wreck before I went. It wasn't nearly as bad as I was anticipating. I didn't feel a thing. I went to Timothy Golian. He is located in the one story offices at Rt 50 and Waples Mill Road. I really liked him. Great chairside manner!

Default Golian

I also went to Timothy Golian- he was really funny, he likes to crack dumb jokes (by his own admission) while you get surgery, which made it go by faster. He is very nice and did a wonderful job.

I had one that seems to be working well, last October. Paid 217.00 total no insurance. Three visits. Basically, the doctor drills through the apexes of your roots with a 1.5 milliliter drill bit, then packs it with antibiotics. Waiting between treatments is required for healing. He went through 3 of 4 apexes the first visit, and the fourth, two weeks later on the second visit. There was calcification in the fourth, and that complicated things.
