Demystifying the root canal: transforming fear into relief

Pain’s Prologue

Root canals are often synonymous with pain, but in reality, they are the remedy, not the cause. Persistent pain, swelling, or an abscess might signify a need for this treatment. We’re here to turn that discomfort into relief, providing a solution rooted in advanced dental care.

Providing clarity on common queries!

  • Modern techniques and anesthetics have transformed root canals into a relatively comfortable procedure. Most patients find it no more discomforting than getting a filling.

  • With proper care and maintenance, a tooth that has undergone a root canal can last a lifetime.

  • After a root canal, regular oral hygiene practices like brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups are essential to ensure the tooth remains healthy.

  • A crown helps in restoring the tooth's strength and functionality, especially since the treated tooth might become brittle over time. The crown provides added protection and durability.

Thank you for giving me back my smile and my confidence. You have no idea what a difference you have made in my life. We think you are very special and understanding.

Revelatory Dental Care

My wife loved your dental office: extremely professional and very caring people. She had no idea she was grinding her teeth at night and what it was doing to her teeth. No one noticed that before!

Gratitude for Expertise

Dear Dr. Rosenberg, A highlight for the year has been getting to know you better – thank you for all you have done for our family. We appreciate your expertise.
Steve C.

Two Decades, Unwavering Trust

My wife and I have been with Hillside Dental for nearly 20 years. From dental cleaning to root canals and almost all dental needs. Dr. Rosenberg and his staff are highly skilled, knowledgeable and very focused on their patients. We are moving to California soon but I would be tempted to come back for our dental needs.
Trish D.

Exceptional Emergency Care

I had a really bad tooth emergency over this past weekend. Since it was a Sunday, the office was closed. I texted the Dr.'s emergency line, and he came into the office with an assistant ready to go and relieve my pain. I can't tell you enough what a relief it was to get this taken care of. I'll always recommend Dr. Rosenberg and his staff.
Kyra R.

Exceptional Experience

I have nothing but the best to say about Hillside Dental Care. The dentist was very kind and polite. I had not been to a dentist in over 15 years and was very nervous, but the dentist and staff made me feel comfortable. I would highly recommend going to this office; they are amazing!
Ann R.

The whole team at this office are Professional, Courteous, Friendly, couldn't ask for more! I recommend them most highly.

20 Years of Great Service

I have been going to this dentist for about 20 years. They have been great with my dental needs as well as my children's. Very patient with the kids. I love this office. Dr. Rosenberg is great, and Ruby is so helpful. My dental hygienist made my teeth feel like new!

First-Class Dental Care

I have had cleanings, fillings, and crowns done by this dentist. All of the work was first class. The staff and Dr. Rosenberg were personable and professional. They were very attentive to my comfort and care. I would recommend them to anyone.
Nicole S.

Comfortable Dental Work

I had 3 teeth removed recently, and I was very nervous as I've never had adult teeth pulled before. The entire staff is super friendly and nice and eased my fears about being at the dentist for the first time in 15 years. Dr. Rosenberg is very knowledgeable with a gentle touch and great bedside manner. I will recommend this office to anyone needing dental work!
Nick K.

20 Years of First-Class Care

Been getting first-class care for over 20 years. I've recommended them to friends and family, and we all agree they make the experience comfortable, and you leave with confidence that you just received excellent care.
Ramon A.

Gentle and Caring Treatment

This is the best dental experience I have had in my LIFE. I had a lot of dental work done as a little boy, including a headgear, extractions, fillings, and braces. As a result, I am traumatized. However, the staff was extremely gentle and aware of my dental office anxiety. THANK YOU to the entire staff for taking such good care of me! I highly recommend!
Megan J.

Compassionate Care

I walked into this dental office with an extreme fear of dentists. The staff is always pleasant, kind, and does everything in their power to help me be comfortable EVERY TIME. Extensive variety of services performed in office. Easily made emergency appointment. Would highly recommend to anyone looking.
