"I woke up Sunday with a toothache. It couldn’t have been at a worse time, Memorial Day weekend I contacted my Dentist Doctor Carella. He asked me s number of questions and asked me if I felt I could wait until the office reopened on Tuesday morning. I said I thought so. I explained that the pain wasn’t that bad, I was just worried about the tooth getting worse and the swelling getting worse. He immediately called in a prescription for an antibiotic and Motrin for pain. This relived my concerns and consequently any more discomfort. Doctor Carella called me Tuesday morning and saw me early Tuesday afternoon. I was so impressed with his genuine concern and his professionalism. His assistant was so caring and reassured me throughout the procedure. I had never had a root canal before but I have heard horror stories about them. Well I’m here to say it wasn’t that way for me. Doctor Carella was amazing. Thanks again for saving my tooth😊👍"
