Hi - as it turns out, much to our surprise and chagrin, our 14-year- old son needs a root canal under a front tooth. No idea how this happened, but it means we need to find a local endodontist to perform this procedure. We'd like to find someone with expertise in caring for teens, super-competent, with good follow-up if necessary. We're in North Berkeley so Berkeley, Oakland, Piedmont would all be great, and we'll certainly go further if someone is recommended very highly. Thanks for your suggestions
I saw your post and knew I had to respond. Our experience with Craig Noblett was truly positive and memorable! Dr Noblett did a root canal for my daughter at 9 years old. So gentle and kind! perfect professional for a kid. Her first real dental experience besides cleaning, he was wonderful with her. Good luck! firstname.lastname@example.org
I saw her for a root canal a few months ago and she was terrific. I actually enjoyed having her do the procedure! I told her I was anxious and she was very reassuring. She's super attentive to pain control -- I literally did not feel a thing.
I saw her for follow-up care after my dentist put on a crown and I felt pain in the tooth. Both dentists suspected a hidden fracture, but x-rays revealed nothing. Just to be sure, Dr. Dastmalchi repeated the root canal. I had the same good experience, and get this: she did it free of charge!
I actually am disappointed I won't be her patient anymore. I can't recommend her highly enough. Nancy
Everything went really smoothly. We also really liked her assistant - I don't know her name, unfortunately, but I got the impression she always works with Dr. Chong. I also appreciated that they were very upfront and clear about what my share of the cost would be. (We have Delta Dental.)
Please contact me if you have specific questions. They are in Berkeley, on Telegraph. The # is 841-6357. emily
I needed a root canal which my dentist does not do, and she sent me to James Anderson who was amazing. I had never had a root canal but was quite nervous. He explained the whole procedure before, during and after. I felt no pain, even after the numbing agents wore off (I'm not saying that's a guaranteed result!). I believe they take Delta Dental.

Skilled endodontist wanted with good chairside manner. I need a root canal repaired (yikes) and need a specialist who can explain treatments, discuss options and talk as they work so I know what's going on. I'm not looking for a lot of hand holding just good clear communication and skill.
He seemed like a nice enough fellow, but he had some scheduling issues at first (I had an appointment for 1:30, and was finally seen by him at 3:30). I rescheduled the appointment for later, since I had childcare issues.
When I went in for my rescheduled appointment, he started working on my tooth and apparently it was a lot worse than he thought, and he had under-medicated me for the length of the procedure and had to keep adding novocaine, and waiting for it to start working. It seemed he might have been working with another patient at the same time, since he keep leaving for substantial periods of time. In any case, he got half done when what he was doing started causing excrutiating pain, and he just couldn't get the site numb enough to continue. He packed it off and had me reschedule. He had a very busy schedule, so we couldn't find a second appointment for a *very* long time (7-8 weeks), and apparently, his partners don't finish others procedures.
I called my dentist and got another referral to Anderson/Krangle et.al. I went into see Dr. Anderson the same day, he finished the procedure in 45 minutes with absolutely NO pain. I wouldn't say he's the warmest guy in the world, but he is incredibly skilled at doing root canals, explained everything carefully and I had NO pain from the site. Everything was handled beautifully, from x-rays to follow-up care. A first class operation. Tooth-Hurty
I'm scheduled for a root canal with Ted Stevenson, but he's scheduled it for a month out. I'm in a lot of pain and am looking for alternatives... Does anyone have a good suggestion? Thanks!
