Murphy’s law is alive and well, especially when it comes to a dull achy tooth one week prior to a stressful trip to take care of my 90 year old Mom who fell and broke her pelvis in Hawaii. My excellent dentist, Dr. Barry Kadowaki, was kind enough to get me in on Monday.  His X-rays did not show a crack in the filling, but with the symptoms, he gave me a referral to Dr. Peter Endo for an endodontic consult. I was reluctant at first because I couldn’t fathom the idea of undergoing a root canal so close to leaving on Saturday.  However, the peace of mind of knowing the diagnosis and cause overrode the hesitance. His office staff was very accommodating and had me come in on Wednesday.  His office played relaxing Hawaiian music which made me feel at home.  My father was an amazing and well respected dentist, so I had very high standards.  Dr. Endo surpassed all of this with his knowledge, patience, skill and compassion.  He spent an incredible amount of time with me using a high powered operating microscope, doing numerous bite tests with different materials to simulate normal situations.  Since I had developed an increased sensitivity to cold in the affected tooth, he used -70 degree dry ice for the final test.  Cool, so very very cool! Dr. Endo then sat down with me, and patiently showed me the X-ray, photos and drew out what he thought was going on.  He was honest and forthright saying he felt the nerve root was not seriously damaged enough to warrant a root canal.  Peter went on to give me a treatment plan to get me through the stressful next couple weeks. Being a physician and surgeon myself, I was very appreciative of his attention to detail, bedside manner and integrity.  When I described my terrific experience with my wife, she remembered that a number of years ago, she had a root canal with Dr. Endo.  Terry remembered being so scared because of all the horror stories she had heard, that she was amazed by how skillful he was, and how well her procedure went with him with a smooth and rapid recovery. We can’t say enough about the excellent superb care we have had with Dr. Peter Endo, and recommend him enthusiastically and without any reservation.  It is very comforting to see so many other fellow Yelpers feel the same way about him.

What a great referral I got to see Dr. Endo!   He is not only a top-notch practitioner, but he is definitely one of the nicest men I have ever met! My first encounter with Dr. Endo was a few years ago (pre-yelp for me) when I needed a root canal.  I can’t remember how it went down, but my husband called my cell and said to go to his office, doctor can see you.  It was Christmas Eve and I was at Costco getting some last minute “had-to” stuff.  I figured he was going to put me at the end of his patient list so I thought I had some time so I finished up at Costco and headed over.  I was so deeply embarrassed to find that he and several staff members had been waiting for me for an hour or more!  On Christmas Eve!  None of them ever showed me a frown or judgement.  Not once did anyone make me feel like a jerk for making them wait.  I mean, I DID feel like a jerk once I fully understood the situation, but everyone at Dr. Endo’s was kind and patient and professional. Fast forward a few years to two days before my trip to Africa.  Toothache again, so I go to my beloved dentist Dr. Steve Yabuno in a panic.  He doesn’t see a problem so he sends me right over to “the endodontist he likes” and much to my joy he sent me to Dr. Endo!  Dr. Endo fits me in, does an ultrasound of my sinus and finds it swollen, swollen, swollen.  He can’t believe I don’t have drippy nose or dizziness.  Since Dr. Endo knows I’m headed out of the country pronto, he took care of the problem (medication) and made sure my trip would be safe, comfortable, and he covered every possibility.  Did I mention he is one of the nicest men I have ever met? I love him!  And, you GOTTA LOVE an ENDOdontist named ENDO!!

I just had my first root canal, thanks to Dr. Endo.  It was a major one, and he made me very comfortable before and during the procedure.  He was very communicative about what he was going to do, how long it would take, and what I should do for follow up. His office is exceptionally clean and modern, and his staff were very helpful, as well.

A year ago or so my husband had to have his first root canal.  He was extremely nervous and needed something to calm his nerves.  Dr. Endo accommodated my husband and prescribed something to relax him before his appointment. Dr. Endo and all staff are professional and are sensitive to their patients’ insecurities.  They care about their patients and explain everything in depth to the patient.  When all was said and done my husband looked at me and said: “I don’t know why I was so afraid of,that was a piece of cake.” Now it was my turn last week for a root canal.  Prior to my appointment, I had a sinus infection that affected the side that I was having my root canal. After my root canal, I had some pain and expressed this to Dr. Endo’s office girl.  She immediately contacted Dr. Endo and I got a personal phone call from Dr. Endo.  I believe I also have had 2 more phone calls from Dr. Endo because he has been worried about me.  That is one caring Dr.  I appreciate his concern for me.  He really is the best.  I would recommend Dr. Endo to any and everyone I know that is in need of a root canal.

Earlier this year, I went to four different endodontists for consultation because I had some infection on one of my root canaled tooth, and wasn’t sure if it can be saved with a RC retreat. I got a 3-D scan with Dr Endo and received a detailed assessment with Dr Endo. We sat down for a good 20-30 minutes to discuss my situation and Dr Endo gave me three different options and the pros/cons. I subsequently went to three other endodontists for second opinions, and ended up doing a RC retreat with one of them because he is in-network. Dr Endo didn’t think RC retreat alone will fix the issue because the tooth end is in a reverse triangle shape probably from a previous surgery and a root canal retreat cannot fill that area. Turns out Dr Endo’s opinion was dead on. The endodontist that actually did the treatment was not able to fill beyond the triangle opening at the root, even though he said he could before the surgery. Out of the four endodontists I went to, Dr Endo gave the most detailed and correct assessments. I also received detailed answers in email when I asked additional questions.  He is also well known in the business, I respect his opinion very much. He is not only friendly, he is actually a very good endodontist.

I was dreading the need for a “root canal”. But my experience with Dr Endo and his team changed that. I had one done yesterday and, given what had to be done, it was a very good experience. Dr Endo is cheerful, communicative, passionate about his deep speciality, and takes time to walk you through the condition, options, process, and outcomes. During the process, I felt I was in skilled, caring hands. Listening to the interaction with the assistant, I could tell he was totally focused but calm and not stressed. He listened to me and worked with me getting the local anesthetic just right so I felt no pain, yet was not drooling or slurring when the procedure was complete. Then, he invited my wife to join him at the computer screen in the “debrief area” as he walked through images of the work and results. I found him conversational, very knowledgable, and good at getting information across in everyday terms. The office team people were friendly and knowledgable, and worked with me to get an urgent appointment, as well as liaise with the dentist who referred me and who would later fit the crown. The assistant during the procedure was so caring, waited with me in the prep stage and kept up conversation to take my mind off things. The office is well organized, pleasant surroundings, utilizes technology well, and feels well thought-through. After the procedure, Dr Endo walked down the hall to the offices of Dr Chen and Dr Yoshioka (also 5 stars), who had examined me and referred me to Dr Endo. He took the Xrays and images, went over the work done (very deep work), and what was best for the crown in a week or so. I would definitely make the same choice again if I need to (fingers crossed I won’t), but know here is a safe and caring option if I do.
