I had a root canal procedure and it was done efficiently, timely, and surprisingly pain free! Dr. Larsen and Elise were very professional and friendly. All the staff I encountered were very friendly and helpful. The time I entered the office and exited after the procedure was an hour and 18 minutes. That’s efficiency and as I mentioned pain free. Thank you for a pleasant experience (and how is that for a comment on a root canal?!).

My experience at Missouri Dental Specialists went above expectations. Dr. Larsen and Elise demonstrated excellence in professionalism, knowledge, and patient care. I had a root canal to save my tooth and Dr. Larsen and Elise explained my procedure and gave pertinent advise and guidance. I felt completely confident that Dr. Larson and Elise completed the procedure in a manner that was efficient and thorough. I greatly appreciate my experience and the great patient care I received. I will highly recommend Missouri Dental Specialists, Dr. Larsen and Elise.

I can’t say enough good thing about Dr. Jansson and his team!! I went in for a previous root canal therapy. Dr. Jansson ended up doing Apicoectomy which I was extremely nervous about. He explained the whole procedure to me and help calm my nerves. They are all amazing,knowledgeable, kind and friendly. I would recommend dr. Jansson and his team to anybody that needs a root canal therapy.

My experience was much, much better than I expected. I opted for the nitrous oxide sedation which helped with my anxiety. The actual dental procedure went very smoothly and was essentially pain free. Dr. Jansenn is simply the best. He is highly skilled and works quickly. I highly recommend his practice for any work you might need from an odontologist. I was very impressed and extremely grateful to have my root canal over and done with virtually pain free. His staff is top-notch as well. Overall, best dental experience I’ve ever had !

I have had two root canals completed at the Columbia facility and I am very pleased with both procedures. The staff were very efficient and answered all of my questions without hesitation. The doctor was very friendly. Although as expected there was a small amount of pain during the first part of the procedure, over all, the entire procedure was as painless as possible. Both procedures were completed without any problems and I was very pleased with the results of both root canals.

My experience in having two root canals done by Dr. Jansson and his staff was an experience that I must share. First, the atmosphere of the waiting room was very pleasant/relaxing, and the greeting I received from behind the front desk was very courteous and friendly. As you enter the work area, you immediately feel the organization of everything, and the courtesy and friendliness continued. I have had root canals, at other locations, so I was not looking forward to another. To my amazement, the root canals were so quick and free of pain. Thank you, Dr. Jansson and assistant. I couldn’t help but notice the efficiency of the entire office. Minor pain relievers are suggested after any root canal, but I found that I didn’t need to take a thing. Would I go back for future root canals? Absolutely!

Dr. Larsen and his staff were very patient and pleasant to be around. During a 2.5 hour gingivitis surgery and Root Canal procedure, I requested the weakest anesthesia with less dosage that should only last 45 minutes. I could feel work being done in my mouth but I felt no pain. After the procedure, I did not take any Tylenol or Ibuprofen, no pain or swollen occurred. If you want professional service and pleasant experience, I strongly recommend Dr. Larsen and his office.

Going to a dental procedure is always a bit scary, but Dr. Lavitt and Chantelle were so friendly, so calming, and so great that my fears were soon eased. Dr. Lavitt is fantastic. I had a root canal and experienced NO PAIN whatsoever. I didn't even feel the Novocain shots. I really wish I could see Dr. Lavitt for all my dental needs instead of just the specialty procedures. He is that great. Thank you for taking such good care of me.

This was my first time at this practice. It was a such a positive experience all the way around. The office staff was very friendly. I had to have a root canal and Dr. Lavitt and his dental assistant Charlann were very professional. Dr. Lavitt kept me informed on every step of the root canal. I would highly recommend Dr. Lavitt to my family and friends.

Dr. Jansson made me feel comfortable and stopped during the procedure to ask if I was doing ok and to reassure me all was going well. I certainly appreciated that as I have spent many years in the dental chair - with not always good results. He and his staff answered any questions I had and I would definitely recommend him.

I enjoyed the informal relaxed environment. It was enjoyable to hear about the cats roaming at night and about kids adventures in pre-school.

I was referred to the office by my dentist because of a bad tooth that was way too sensitive and he couldn’t find anything on the ex-rays so when I arrived at Missouri Dental Specialist they gave me the whole deal trying to find out what was going on and since I have such sensitivity going on Dr.Jannson and Emily were very caring about it and understood how I felt. He seen the ex-rays and a scan and showed lots of swelling in my root and slight cracks so right there he did a root canal on one and another root canal on another, apparently I had way too much sensitivity in both teeth , the staff are very sweet and patient and understanding, thank you all for everything and your kindness for someone who is very nervous about having teeth touched , don’t ever change in how you handle patients because how you were with me will gain a lifetime of trust , I will always come back to you all if I ever need to again , thank you so much!!

I went in just to see what the cause of my discomfort was and they ended up doing a root canal on the spot. My pain has gone away already. Dr. Jansson and his staff were very caring and their humor helped the time fly by during the actual procedure. I would highly recommend Missouri Dental Specialists.
