“I came to Dr. Yelton as referred by my dentist. I was so nervous I made myself sick. Shortly after arriving, Dr. Yelton and his staff eased my fears and kept the entire visit pleasant and calm. Unable to have my favorite; ice cream (homemade) and coffee was making eating horrible. Just two days after seeing Dr. Yelton and his staff, I am eating my ice cream with a hot cup of coffee. Thank you. I praise the Lord for sending me to this practice. I will pray for this practice as well as recommend it! Thanks a million!”

 “Dr. Chris Yelton and his staff were very courteous. I appreciate the dental care during my recent procedure. I would recommend others. Thanks again to everyone.”

-Yolanda M.

 “This was my second root canal procedure at Essential Endodontics. In both cases, the diagnosis, consult and actual procedure were very professional and very well done. I was surprised that the pain management procedures worked so well. In both cases, as the local anesthetic wore off, so did any pain or discomfort. Yes, the initial shots pinched, but after that there was little or no residual swelling of pain…fantastic!”

-Andrew C.
