"My 15 yr. old grandson needed a root canal done and Western Mass Endodontics was the referral his local dentist gave us. Eric Shapiro was the Endodontist that performed the root canal. We can't say enough good things about the Dr. and the staff. It was amazing from start to finish and even a call from Dr. Shapiro hours after the procedure to see how my grandson was doing. His mother was beyond satisfied.....A++++++++"
