My husband was in so much pain, and I spoke to Dr. Etessami on the phone, one time on New Years weekend. He immediately told me that he called a prescription in for antibibotics, and cleared his schedule for my husband to see him Monday morning. This dentist understands pain as a fifth vital sign and is probably the best dentist around. Seriously, I think Dr. Etessami is worth every penny. Sometimes you have to pay to have something done correct. After going to dentist after dentist and spending thousands of dollars and my husband would come home and say," $%$#@%, they didn't do anything for me, and now im in more pain!" You can imagine the frustration. He brought a lot of faith back to me about the ethics and morality of doctors. I have a friend that didn't take care of an abcess, and now he's retarded. My husband's infections were so bad, my husband spoke of breathing better after the eight hours in surgery. I believe he saved his life. Dr. Etessami followed up two nights in a row, and said, that he doesn't believ he has to ever go back to see the dentist. Just cosmetic. My husband has been in pain for years, and it has ruled our life. Pain was a 10 , now a 1.Please call him and get it done. Our quality of life is so much better

I have been seeing Rami Etessami for probably 30 years or more for endodontal work and he recently just extracted a wisdom tooth. I have found his office and his care beyond excellent, compassionate and professional. He doesn’t do what he doesn’t have to do. He tries not to do procedures but when he does them he does them with absolutely no error, no complications and is the kindest, most trustworthy man and dentist. I have terrible dental phobia. He has corrected the work of dental errors in the past 30 years so to trust someone takes a lot and I trust him completely.

Absolutely amazing staff and treatment! Dr Etessami redid a root canal that I had done at a different doctor’s office and was having severe tooth pain. After Dr Etessami treated me the pain was completely gone and the root canal was so easy! Super quick, I almost fell asleep during it I was so comfortable! Highly recommend getting treated here.
