My entire life I’ve feared getting a root canal. After being recommended to Dr. Harwood by a friend, I knew I would be in good hands. My root canal was significant, but the procedure was painless and other than a little soreness the night of (which quickly went away with some Advil) the next day I was completely free of pain. Not to mention the front desk staff is lovely. If anyone asks me the best doctor to see to get a root canal, I will absolutely recommend Dr. Harwood. Thank you so much!
OK, so I am 60. So a root canal I had 13 years ago failed. I found Adam Harwood who bought the office where I had my initial root canal done. But now I am very tender and swollen. In steps Adam Harwood and in 2 visits revises my root canal via microscopic technique and now I am totally symptom free. Catherine his office manager is amazing and knowledgable. He takes most insurance plans. He is very very competent and easy to see. If need an endodontist go see Dr Harwood!
I called his office Friday morning at 9am in a panic because I was traveling and my porcelain veneer came out. He’s not my dentist, mine was on vacation and referred me to him. His receptionist was so unbelievably helpful, she told me not to worry and spent about 30 minutes doing research on dentists in New Mexico (where I was traveling!) I couldn’t believe that kind of helpfulness and kindness, just out of the goodness of her heart. I’m not even a regular patient!! Above and beyond, seriously. Give her a hug and a raise!!!
I have just completed a root canal with Dr. Harwood. This is the second tooth he has treated. He re-did an existing root canal, originally done 9 years ago that failed due primarily to the fact that the previous endodontist did not use a microscope and could not see the multiple other roots in the tooth. I cannot say enough about Dr. Harwood’s care, compassion and patience. He is available by phone at all times and immediately addresses all questions. He anticipates potential pain issues, working collaboratively with the patient. In my case, I required 2 trials of different antibiotics. He prescribed narcotics at my request which I didn’t need, managing the pain in between treatments with Tylenol and Advil. There was no pain during the 3 appointments I had. It was fun and interesting to learn about my teeth and the particular tooth in question which turned out to be complex, with 5 roots instead of the 1 root which was originally filled. Dr. Harwood worked with my particular situation. No cookie cutter treatment here! Individualized, professional treatment with a thoroughly experienced clinician to guide you through the process. Need I say more?
I have a fear of dental work, so I was not happy to hear I needed a root canal. Dr. Harwood put me at ease, and the procedure was painless. Then he showed me an xray of the tooth, and it looked great! A week later, and I feel no pain in the tooth. Thanks, Dr. Harwood!
I had to have a root canal, which I’d never undergone before. I was dreading the experience, especially after a friend told me about a really bad root canal with a dental student. Dr. Harwood not only made it pain-free, but also made sure to explain everything that he was going to do and, during the procedure, what he was doing. Aside from the first pinches of anesthesia in my cheek, I didn’t feel a thing during the procedure. He was also very clear in explaining what’s normal once the anesthesia wears off and what merits a phone call and possible follow-up visit.
I have a small mouth, which is in and of itself difficult — and procedures are generally painful & problematic. For this, my second root canal, it was quiet, fast, efficient and absolutely PAINLESS, bliss! The whole thing really didn’t take long and I will refer all of my friends in theatre, music, dance. Thank you!!
Dr Harwood saved my two teeth. He is a talented and kind doctor. I highly recommend him !!!!!!!
After nearly one year of discomfort, I am pain free because I went to Dr Harwood for a second opinion.
Last year I kept getting infections in my mouth after two root canal procedures were done by my previous endodontist. That dentist also said I should expect to have one tooth extracted and replaced with an implant because it was cracked and kept getting infected.
When I saw Dr Harwood, he removed the temporary crown,which allowed the root canal material to pop out followed by pus. Dr Harwood determined my tooth had become cracked because it was drilled on a diagonal, creating a “canal” , which was filled, while leaving the infected two root untreated. Dr Harwood treated the infected roots and saved the tooth even though it was cracked!
Dr Harwood then looked at the other tooth and determined it was not “packed ” tightly. Decay had started around the crown and the crown was removed, the root canal was redone. The odd sensations and discomfort in the tooth disappeared.
Both teeth are free of infections, pain and discomfort and it has been over 9 months.
Hooray For Dr Harwood!
Dr. Harwood is an excellent endodontist and his work ethic is amazing. A root canal is nerve-wracking, to begin with, however, when I am sitting in the chair I feel I am in the secure and professional care of an excellent Dr. Two Teeth up for Dr. Harwood! Teeth up for Dr. Harwood!
I have been a patient of Dr. Harwood’s for over 15 years. Unfortunately, I have needed many root canals and I always turn to Dr. Harwood. He is very caring and thorough. highly recommend him if you are in need of an Endodontist.
