Special Professional Interests

I enjoy the personal as well as the technical aspects of endodontics, and the many scientific advancements I’ve experienced in over 30 years of practice. I get great satisfaction in often hearing from patients, “I was so apprehensive about this root canal but it was easier than my last filling.”

Dr. Z said he would call me the next day with results of dental tests and his recommendation. He did not call the next day, and then he was off for a week. A front desk person read his notes to me. Dr was not available for me yo ask questions. He seemed very competent... his foillowthru was suspect.

The doctor and assistant were very patient with me. I have a lot of anxiety and issues with dental work, they were more than patient and understanding and did what ever they could to put me at ease.

Dr Zucker is thoughtful, kind, professional and highly skilled. Having a root canal isn't an enjoyable experience but I knew I was in good hands and he was doing his best to ensure he was getting the job done right and keep me as comfortable as possible. I couldn't think more highly of him.
