Dr. Roach put me completely at ease. She was kind, thorough, and compassionate, both when discussing the problem I had with my tooth, and in pausing to check in with me during the root canal. She also kept me updated on her progress during the procedure which kept me calm.

Dr. Samantha Roach, by far gave me the best dental experience that I have ever had at a dentist office. She is a true professional who made my experience absolutely seamless considering the circumstances with me coming in for a root canal. THANK YOU Dr. Roach!!

Dr. Roach is excellent. She explained everything, took X-rays to check her work, and had a calming demeanor. I was very anxious and uncomfortable, but she was confident and reassuring.

When Dr. Roach found that my tooth was cracked into the root, she recommended not continuing the root canal, but having the tooth extracted. I'm grateful for her response to my situation and her conservative approach.
