I had two root canals “re-done” by my Endodontist. This resulted in an infection that spread to my jaw, ears, sinuses, and eyes. I had just completed three rounds of antibiotics for this infection which had returned twice. I made an appointment with Dr. Dent’s P.A., Bret Noland, to confirm the infection was finally cleared up. I was extremely pleased with Bret’s knowledge, thoroughness, and understanding of my specific situation of having a weak immune system due to Lymphoma. Most of all, he listened to me, believed this had actually happened to me (unlike another ENT I had previously seen), and was kind and gentle. He confirmed my sinus and ear infections had cleared up, and per my request, provided me with a backup plan (a different antibiotic) in case the infection should return again. I felt a sense of relief in knowing I had a very competent P.A. and ENT office supporting me during this trying time. My appointment was 16 days out, since this was my first time visiting their office. It was absolutely worth the wait. Desiree at the front desk, and the attending nurse were extremely nice, helpful, and professional as well.
