I have been in a lot of dentist and endodontists' chairs and really get anxious about it. Dr. Mattscheck and her staff hit a home run with me. She was incredibly patient, made the whole experience pain-free, and most important of all, knows her craft. She explained my choices more clearly than I have ever heard, and helped me make decisions about treatment. This afternoon, I had two simultaneous root canals, and am very comfortable at home this evening. I have been to a lot of specialists, and she is the best. Thank you for your patience, your clarity, and most of all your skills and abilities in helping me.
Hi Donna, Holly, and everyone else who helped me yesterday. Just wanted to thank you again for the TLC and excellent dental care and advice yesterday. I so appreciated Donna’s frankness. Your practice environment is extraordinary – warm and inviting –
it was like being cocooned in a whole lot of care and support!
Hope you all have happy holidays,
Feels Like a Big Hug
Dear Dr. Barry and Staff,
Thank you for the wonderful care you gave me yesterday!
I have fears, I'm sure like others, and a root canal is not the most pleasant of things to have done
but Dr. Barry, you and Elisha took great care in making me feel welcome and comfortable.
And the experience in your office was top notch!
Even the littlest of details like padded bite wing x-rays was amazing, I wish all dentist used those.
I was very impressed with the technology of everything in your office from filling out forms online (very convenient!)
to the equipment, but the best was the people!
I have already told friends and family how if they need an endodontist, they should ask to be referred to you and be well taken care of!
I will ask my primary dentist to put you as my preference if I need any future endo care.
Dear Dr. Barry,
I have always been taken great care of by my primary dentist, Dr. X. When he retired, Dr. Y. took over as my primary, and he too has been excellent, and always makes me feel at ease. But when I was told that root canal work might be in my future, I became very nervous and uneasy, as I have always heard negative things about this process. After having it done in your office yesterday, I can say that my fears were unfounded, and that you sir, were excellent in your execution of my root canal procedure. Your staff was second to none.
When my tooth got much worse, prior to my scheduled visit, you were also good enough to get me in right away and take a look. Starting me on some medication that greatly diminished my suffering was most appreciated, and the next day you were also good enough to get me in early and take care of my pending event, the dreaded root canal work.
“Root canal is a beautiful event”, when it happens in your office. You not only have a modern office with a great view of Portland, your staff took care of me like I was their father. You just can not ask for more than that. In a profession that I’m sure always hears about it when it is not right, I thought you should hear about it when it is, and you sir are very right when it comes to taking care of your patients.
If you ever need a letter of referral you can certainly use to this one. I would be happy to speak to anyone of your patients and assure them of the no pain, no anxiety experience I had with you. It would be my pleasure.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I am relieved to know if I ever need this again, I will travel anywhere to have you and your staff take care of it. If there is ever anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am at your service.
Root Canal is a Beautiful Event
I was highly impressed with the office and will come back again (God forbid) if the rest of my teeth bite the dust. I am also recommending your office to all of my friends.
My dental saga began when I was prepped for a crown at my dentist's office. My tooth became highly agitated and I was at the point where I would have pulled the tooth out myself with a pair of pliers. I needed a root canal immediately, and Dr. Barry's office agreed to squeeze me in before a long holiday weekend. I have worked in various medical settings in the past and was floored by the level of excellence within this tightly knit team. You know you are in the right place the minute you step through the door. Wendy is organized, efficient and genuinely cares about the well being of others. Elisha and Jessica are likewise caring individuals who are highly skilled at what they do. If I needed anything, they took care of it immediately (magazine, blanket, water, pain killers). And last but not least is Dr. Barry. I HATE having procedures done to my teeth, but I have to say that he and his staff made my root canal a pleasant experience. All of the materials used either smelled or tasted good. I could barely feel any of the injections (and because I take a long time to get numb...believe me, there were plenty of them). Dr. Barry is confident, highly competent, and has a great sense of humor. He and his team turned a really negative situation for me into a positive one. AND...they call you to check up on you after the procedure! The entire experience made me feel really well-cared for. These people are the best of the best, and I would not hesitate to come back again.
I just wanted to let you all know how impressed I was with your office and the way you treated me last Thursday. I was amazed at how easy the root canal procedure was and how Dr Barry and his assistant made me feel comfortable. I truly appreciate it.
My Root Canal Was Easy
Dr. Mattscheck and staff, I wanted to thank you for the exceptional treatment you gave my daughter Megan in treating her avulsed tooth. As traumatic as that event can be on a seven year old (and her parents)I found Dr. Mattscheck to be direct and informative, yet extremely compassionate in dealing with my child. Further, Dr. Mattscheck and Elisha went out of their way, on a lunch break, in and effort to partner with my daughter's dentist to ensure she was as comfortable as possible. As a father, and patient, I could not be more impressed. My sincere gratitude and thanks!!! John
I could not be more impressed
I should start with this: I'm picky. Dental care is an investment in my total health and I've tried to make good choices. Recently I was shocked to discover out of the blue that two teeth (within the same week) suddenly were in terrible pain and needed root therapy. The pain was intense, and I couldn't sleep.
Remember I said I'm picky? I also work in a clinic so I see things other patients might not - for better and for worse... WITHOUT EXCEPTION, your clinic was OUTSTANDING. Two times in one week your team worked me in and showed incredible compassion and kindness for my comfort and care. Both doctors were that rare combination of highly skilled and great communicators. From scheduling to explaining my insurance and financials... from the dental assistants to the doctors, everyone was exceptional.
No one should be afraid of those two most dreaded words: "Root Canal" at this clinic. Frankly, I've had facials in spas with more discomfort! My only regret is that I can't go to this same clinic for general dentistry - everyone took that great a care of picky me. Many thanks! ~Renata
