"I just got a root canal from Dr Shapiro and he redefines the dental experience! From the professionalism and efficiency of his staff to his relaxed, confident “chairside” manor, this was easily the most pleasant dental experience I’ve ever had (and I’ve had plenty!). We’ll done Doc!"
"When I called to schedule a root canal after my dentist’s recommendation, I was given a next day appointment because I was in pain. The entire procedure was almost painless except for the Novocain, which was momentarily a big pinch then done. I was impressed with every member of the team, especially Dr. Shapiro, who explained everything he was doing and treated me with kindness and professionalism. We were finished in an hour and now, 7 hours later, I can truthfully report that I have not experienced pain of any kind. I urge anyone dreading this procedure to not wait. Thank you, Western Mass Endo!"
"Dr. Shapiro and his team were so welcoming and amazing. Great job on my root canal treatment."
"Dr Eric Shapiro is a highly competent DDS who takes the time to find out the root of the problem and fixes it using what seem to be the latest in dental tech. I felt well taken care of by the very courteous staff as well."
"I highly recommend western mass endo. Very professional, efficient, kind and pain free. I've had a few root canals and this was by far the best experience I've had. I want to thank Dr. Shapiro, Rachel and the rest of the staff for a great experience."
