Dear Dr. Ptak,

This is Dr. Elizabeth Noel from Cornerstone Dental Group in Westford. You saw my patient today and I wanted to give you two thumbs up! You got her in right away, and completed the root canal on the same visit. Plus, your note to me is great. I really appreciate the information you send- diagnosis, prognosis, number of canals, etc. No other office in my 20+ years of practice has sent me this information, which is EXACTLY what I want. I cannot thank you enough.

I will be sending more patients your way!

Professionally yours,

Dr. Devon Ptak was amazing! Like most, I have an extremely irrational fear of going to the Dentist, let alone getting a root canal done. My two visits to Dr. Ptak were painless and easy and I definitely recommend her for any endodontic work you need to get done.

I highly recommend Premier Endodontics for both their professionalism and their care for their patients.

Dr. Bella is amazing!!

I wanted to tell you how extremely pleased I am with Dr. Jones’ work on my root canal. She is an absolute artist.

If you want the best experience possible for a root canal or any work they do here, this is the place to go!

Elizabeth Jones is the best endodontist with golden hands. If she says – there won’t be any pain- you can trust her 100%! Highly recommend

Dr. Jones was fantastic. I’ve had several root canals over the years and she was able to do it totally pain free!!! What an excellent doctor she is! Wonderful person, terrific experience.

Most relaxed root canal job I have ever had on a tooth. From the time you enter office you feel welcomed. Thank you to the hockey mom who had me laughing in chair and to Dr. Ptak for getting my tooth ready for my crown.

My old root canal was severely infected and painful. These wonderful endodontist looked to see if it could be saved and it could. They were honest and upfront about risk of loosing my tooth. They called me every night for 3 days and brought me back for long-acting Novocain so I did not have to take too much pain medicine. My tooth is saved and I have made new friends, My husband saw them and loved them and my son will see them soon.

Dr. Jones’s bedside manner made the time I spent there fly by. Her approach to patients should be used as a model for all future dentists (general or specialists alike). I wasn’t just a patient on her to do list. She really tried to connect with me and ease my extensive anxiety around going to the dentist. There are not enough stars to show how good Dr. Jones and her staff are!!!!!!

I am so so deeply thankful to this practice for booking a same-day root canal appointment for me when I was in agony and unable to sleep the previous night. I couldn’t imagine waiting one more day to get the procedure done. They were able to see me within 2 hours of me calling and it was painless as soon as the novocaine set in.
