Let me first say that I have a VERY low threshold for pain in my mouth. I have super sensitive teeth, receding gums, and anxiety about dental work. When I found out that I had to have a root canal, I sat in my car and cried for 10 minutes. Dr. Buttke's office was comfortable and the exam room was spacious. His assistant was very approachable, kind and gentle. I never felt a bad prick with the Novocain shots, or the drilling, or the filing... honestly, I didn't feel ANYTHING. NOTHING! It's just unheard of. The procedure was yesterday afternoon, and I woke up with ZERO PAIN. I cannot say enough about how please (and relieved) I am. Don't be afraid if you have to go. Trust me on this!

Dr. Buttke is not only an excellent Endodontist, he is also a very fine human being. If you are his patient, you feel as though he and his staff genuinely care about you and have your best interest at heart. He is always willing to go the extra mile for you, and that is what separates him from the other dentists out there. During your root canal he makes a seemingly frightening procedure tolerable by walking you through what he is doing and constantly checking on you to make sure you're ok.

I would like the thank Dr. Buttke and his staff for making a scary and possibly painful procedure as pleasant as possible and pain free! They made you feel welcome from the time they checked you in to the time you left.
The procedure was explained to you and your comfort seemed to be very important to them.
Hopefully I won't have to have another root canal, but if I do, Dr. Buttke and his staff will be seeing me again!

I sincerely appreciate the help you all provided me. I am so thankful that I came to your office. Not only did I receive treatment from Dr. Buttke that made me feel 1,000 times better, but the staff that I spoke with was incredible, especially Mrs. Mary. Thank you for being patient with me, getting me in as soon as possible, and helping me with this procedure. You never truly realize how the way that you treat others can affect them and your staff restored my faith in others. It’s hard to put in words how grateful I am. Keep doing what y’all are doing and I will send anyone who needs an endodontist your way!
