Testimonial Mishawaka – Shara

“When I came in I expressed my fear of the dentist. So much so, that I had previously removed one of my teeth myself. The assistant that took care of me, she was AMAZING. She made sure I knew what was going on and was able to keep me as calm as possible. I thought I was going to be getting a tooth extracted and instead she assured me is be able to keep it. I had 2 teeth that needed root canals. Dr. Fletcher took great care of me. I’m going to start bringing my son for regular visits. Thank you so much for giving me a GREAT experience from the minute I walked in the door until I left!”

He said everything went well and I didn’t need stitches!

Root canals are never pleasant, this is not my first, but in this entire experience I felt NO PAIN, and 24 hours later with NO post-procedure meds I have no discomfort! My mouth feels perfectly normal, as if I’d had nothing done at all! Thanks Afdent, for consistently assurring excellent, on time, professional services – and for maintaining a GREAT staff!”
