    Has anyone had a good experience with an endodontist in the area or a dentist that does root canals? I was referred to Nova Microendodontics, but I was placed with someone that just started and I don't have the heart yet ask for someone more experienced. Furthermore, they don't work directly with my insurance company.

    Any negative experiences with local endodontists are very welcomed as well! Thanks a bunch!

    I used Mariah Shojaei for a root canal last year. She was petty good. Office staff and assistants were nice. Her office is in the office buildings near the Sterling Post Office and Regal theater.

    Dr. Fred Canby in Leesburg is Awesome. Over the years he has done 3 different root canals for me. His practice is limited to endodontics. His address is 2 Cardinal Park Drive, S.E., Suite 106-A, Leesburg, VA 20175. His number is 703-779-7900.

    Good luck.

    Reston Dental Arts Center - 703-860-3200

    ...Dr Eichler (30+ years) or Dr Dollard (40+ years)...

    I've been a patient for almost 3 decades - general care, 3 root canals, braces..etc (OMG am I that old).

    FWIW - stay away from Dr Massin (Park Center Dr, Herndon), he did a root canal and did not complete it after 6 mo, Reston Dental Arts re-treated it and found they had left a few things in the canal.

    Thanks so much for your responses. Unfortunately, I have Anthem Dental and it's not accepted by many.

    I second her, she was really good and the work on my root canal was great, per other dentist. Plus, I had hardly any pain. :clap:

    I just wanted to post an update to my root canal experience. I ended up making an appointment with Dr. Rashin-Bidgoli in Sterling. She and her staff were really fantastic. I was expecting this to be much more traumatic than it was. She's very gentle and is really good with administering the shots.My root canal was successful and I didn't feel pain at all during the process and minimal soreness afterwards. The front desk was thorough and checked up on me both times. I received my crown today from Dr. Raymond Hahn, a dentist that they referred me to. He's also wonderful - very personable and pleasant. I would highly recommend him as well.

    This is downtown which may be a deal breaker, but she's worth the drive - Dr. Paula Russo, with an office on K St. I cannot say enough good things about my root canal experience with her, which yes is a very strange sentence! She came recommended by my dentist and has a bunch of national accreditations so not only does she know what she's doing, but she was also very pleasant during the office visits and was VERY gentle.

    Agree - I saw Dr. Russo when I worked downtown. Definitely worth the drive.
