About 4 months ago my dentist told me I needed 2 root canals. She referred me to an endodontist who told me I needed a CT scan first. But their CT scan machine was at their other office which was an hour away. So I found a local endodontist (Santa Clarita Endodontix) and went there for the CT scan instead.  It cost $200.00 (not covered by insurance). When I called the other endodontist office back to let them know I now had the flash drive of the CT scan, they scheduled me for an appointment to look at it. That consultation would be another $100.00! This was starting to irritate me. That’s when I asked my dentist to send my referral to Santa Clarita Endodontix instead. I’m so glad that I did that! They didn’t charge me for the consultation. Dr. Safa just looked at the flash drive and told me that I needed one root canal (not two) and he did it right there and then.  I was ridiculously nervous so I used some humor to diffuse my anxiety. I asked Dr. Safa if he had ever done a root canal before. Without skipping a beat, he said that I was his first, but he had just watched a YouTube video to see how it’s done! This made me laugh and it also created some well needed levity.  As he was working on me he asked several times if I was okay.  Honestly, my fear was the worst part of the whole procedure. It didn’t hurt at all. He did an excellent job. His support staff, Lisa, Liz & Karen were also fantastic. They worked so well together, & they treated me like a VIP! The following day I fully expected to wake up in a lot of pain. But, there was barely any. I didn’t even need to take any pain medication! I highly recommend Santa Clarita Endodontix. I’m so thankful that I found them! By the way, I’m a bit of a songwriter. On the morning of my appointment I sat down at my piano to relieve some of my anxiety and ended up writing a little tune. I’m attaching a link to it here just for the heck of it. I aptly named it ‘The Root Canal Song’.

I was referred to Dr. Safa for a root canal.  I was a little apprehensive before going, but once I met the staff and Dr. Safa, I knew that I was in good hands.  I found Dr. Safa to be very friendly and informative.  He explained each step of the way and before I knew it the procedure was over.  I highly recommend Dr. Safa and his lovely staff !

Had a root canal yesterday. It was a redo from 40 years ago. I have a bone infection. I found the most amazing Endodontist. I told him after the root canal, that was amazing. What a crazy thing to say. But Wow it was so easy. Dr Younes Safa really knows his stuff. I’m over the top impressed with him, his staff and his beautiful state of the art office. What a good experience. He has offices in Santa Clarita, Pasadena, Torrance and Long Beach. The name is Santa Clarita Endodontix. I highly recommend them.

Joann B. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had so much pain the week prior from a old Root Canal from 2000 and an infection on top of the old root canal.  That it took all of my strength to show up to my 11:00 am appointment yesterday.  Thank god I was able to not only show up but sit down and talk to Dr. Safa.  He talked to me and explained to me what needed to be done after they took 1 X-ray. I needed to have my root canal redone.   He started to work on my tooth the last one on the upper left side, not an easy spot to get to.  He told me what he was doing during the procedure and told me in the in a few minutes we will not be drilling anymore, then you will feel a vibration, and then you have 10 minutes left.  The whole procedure only lasted about 40 minutes.  I did not feel any pain at all !!  I have a very low pain tolerance.  If you need to to have anything done and you are referred to this office like I was I would not hesitate to tell you to go.  You will be in very good hands.  The office staff and the doctors assistance were all great and they were very caring and gentle.  If I ever need anything done I will be back. I only took 3 Motrine 800 mg yesterday and this morning I don’t need any I have no pain.  I feel Great  !!  Thank you to everyone who helped me yesterday.

Cait D. from Pasadena, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff and team were wonderful! The waiting room was very modern, not typical for most dental offices. Once I was seen the hygienist was very kind and generous to help in any way. I had an appointment for a root canal which is very frightening for some. The procedure room itself was very clean and up to date with all dentistry equipment. The doctor that helped me, Ferras Mashtoub was very knowledgeable and throughly described the procedure which made things much more comforting. It’s always nice when doctors explain things to you. Everything went extremely well, so much so that I almost fell asleep while being in the chair! I was amazed by how great their service was! I highly recommend Santa Clarita Endontix.

Riley C. from Castaic, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start off by saying i have a MAJOR dental phobia!! I was told by my normal dentist that i would need a root canal on my top left far back molar which was also broken. Ive had a root canal in the past which was a horrible experience and was really nervous about going through it again! My denist referred me to santa clarita endodontics and i went this morning. The overall experience was 110% better than i expected! The best part is that i feel completely fine now!! Thank you so much for such a pain free root canal! I will not go anywhere else for future root canals!

Colin C. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I simply can’t say enough about how great this place is!  I was suffering from day 3 of excruciating dental pain which I assumed was allergies.  I contact my primary dentist, who was closed at 530 pm on a Thursday evening and she referred me to this place.  They were able to get me in as soon as I could get there which blew my mind.  I arrived and they already knew the story and after a quick exam they revealed that I needed a root canal, which they proceeded to do immediately.  The staff was all extremely kind, genuine and caring and the Dr himself was quick, to the point and thorough.  Two hours prior to walking into the building I was convinced I’d be spending the weekend in pain, however like a godsend they saved the day.  I’m beyond thankful!

Enrique S. from Upland, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best endodontist in Santa Clarita hands down! had to go in for an internal bleaching (single tooth whitening) after my root canal tooth had become darker over time. Everyone was amazing. The front office was wonderful, Dr. Safa was simply the best. Lourdes, his dental assistant, made sure that I felt at ease throughout my appointment. The whole process was made really easy. I came in multiple times and it was simply the best service and care ever. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a root canal specialist. Thank you everyone at Santa Clarita Endodontix!

Julio G. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Found Dr Safa on Yelp and decided give them a try over my dentist’s original referral for a long-delayed root canal. Glad I did so! Besides Dr Safa being exceedingly competent (he definitely has the knowledge and the dexterity), what I also noticed is how tight of a ship this whole office is: clean facility, new equipment and, an anomaly for a drs office, everything seems to run on time. Checked in within 5 minutes as a new patient, was on the chair at exactly the appointment time and out of there 45 minutes later as predicted by Dr Safa. The procedure itself was painless under the anesthesia and had mild discomfort for say, a day an a half after it wore out, which I was told was expected. Thanks to Dr Safa, Lourdes and Lisa for making everything work flawlessly. Hope I never have to come back, but if I need to, you’d be my choice.

Shabnam V. from Porter Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


During my pregnancy I had a dental issue that needed a root canal by a specialist. I was referred to Dr. Safa and couldn’t be any more happier. I don’t like going to the dentist because they are the deliverer of bad news. I was horrified that I needed a root canal. I walked in, sat in the chair and thought I was going to die. Anxiety kicked in big time. But Dr. Safa helped me snap out of my anxiety attack by telling me exactly what I needed to hear to trust him. I listened to him and before I knew it, I was done. My husband and I were shocked how fast he completed the job. I can officially say that I am no longer afraid of the dentist anymore after completing this quick and painless procedure.

Greg U. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Safa was amazing!  Very friendly and professional!  I had a root canal done and am one of those people who gets very nervous with this sort of treatment.  I can tell you it was the easiest procedures I’ve been through!  He was very informative and explained in detail what needed to be done and how it was done.  All the girls on staff were amazing as well helping me understand my responsibilities and what my insurance covered….again all were very friendly and professional!  Loordes who assisted Dr. Safa was truly so helpful being by my side during the procedure helping me with everything I needed to do.  They are very thorough in explaining what to be done once I got home.  I would highly recommend Dr. Safa, Loordes and the whole staff!!  We all know how we feel about dental work but it was truly a wonderful experience and know you would be in good hands with them!  Don’t look any farther….if it’s a Endodontix you need call them! Thanks Dr. Safa, Loordes and staff!! Greg

Chris C. from Studio City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to this dental office by my regular dentist because I may need a root canal.  The front staff appeared professional.  I was immediately attended to even though I walked in 15 minutes before their actual open hours.  I completed an electronic medical questionnaire and it was very convenient.  I was called in a couple minutes after they opened.  I checked high blood pressure on the medical questionnaire and they actually took my blood pressure after I was seated in the exam room… that’s the first for me for a dental visit.  X-Ray of the problem tooth was taken.  Dr. Safa entered the exam room and introduced himself.  Dr. Safa was very friendly.  After the examination, he informed that a root canal was needed.  I felt nervous since I heard that root canals were painful and this was my first one.  I expressed my concern to Dr. Safa and he eased my worries.  The only minimal pain I felt was the injection for anesthesia which was a small pinch sensation.  After 35 minutes the root canal was done.  Then the X-Rays taken were then explained to me by Dr. Safa.  I totally appreciate the information Dr. Safa shared.  No pain after the procedure and no pain after the anesthesia wore off.  I’m not going anywhere else for a root canal.

Darren H. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


It has been years since I had anything done in my mouth.  After a gum-line recession fix from a past dentist fell out, and my current dentist told me I had to have a root canal, I was filled with nothing but anxiety and fear. My wife had already been a vocally supportive patient, so I scheduled my referral and appointment with Santa Clarita Endodontix.   Dr. Safa and his staff made this experience as stress free as possible.  I was medicated with little to no feeling, and the procedure, although still a little nerve-wracking, was painless.  Dr. Safa was talking to me during the procedure, and on top of any minor discomfort I indicated.  I am now waiting for my appointment with my dentist to have a replacement crown, and still no pain, or other adverse affects have been evident.  I will always go to Dr. Safa, and will highly recommend his practice for any friend or family.

Tammy Y. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have a serious PTSD when it comes to dental work. Mainly because every time I see one, it is like buying a new car that I don’t want and then the trauma and pain. I recently was referred to Dr. Safa to remove two fistulas. The man is incredible! The pain was nothing,even when he gave me the shots to numb me prior. I was in his chair at 4:30pm and in my car going home by 5:12pm. He knew how stressed I was and he would talk and calm me and the most important thing to me… when he said “Ok almost done, 10 minutes more” He did not lie! He was really done in 10 minutes. He is very very clean, thorough, fast and a true professional, which really really mean’s a lot to me. He also worked with me on the cost. I think he has won me over and I am definitely using him and referring all family and friends to him as well. Dr.Safa is truly great find!!!!!  Thanks so much Dr Safa!

I have had several root canals throughout the years and recently a few of them done here. This office is by far the best experience I’ve had. All the staff members are nice, professional, understanding, and patient. I would definitely recommend this place for your root canal!!

Irma Z. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I like to start from the time I made the call; the receptionist, Liz was courteous and professional. Informative with new procedures. What to do up on arrival. Once I came inside I was impressed by the office, and personnel.  Clean, neat and respecting distance and all the new measures. Once in the drs office I was impressed by the cleanest and well protected furniture, equipment, and nurse. Also the respectful approach of her and the dr. I was given a tablet to hear all the process of my issue and what to expect before and after. The process was long and painful but the gentle touch of my dr was comfortable. The call the day after was very important and reassuring of the professional attention too. I will return if I need to… Irma

Jiemin M. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I normally don’t do any review. This is my first review on yelp. I had an emergency roots canal need to be done. I was in such a pain. I couldn’t sleep, woke up in the middle of night. None of the pain medicines worked. My dentist suggested the other Endodontix. They can’t see me until the end of month. That means I will need to suffer three more weeks. I couldn’t wait. So I searched the yelp. I found Santa Clarita Endodontix and decided to give it a try. I called 7:30 in the morning, they were able to get me in 8:30am even though Dr. Safa has fully booked schedule. Dr. Safa and his assistant Lourdes are really professional. He told me he would perform the roots canal right away since I was in such a bad pain. During the procedure, Dr. Safa made sure to let me know how much longer the procedure was left. My roots canal was completely done within an hour. I really appreciate that Dr. Safa was able to squeeze me in and perform the procedure. I can tell how busy he was. I was feeling so much better during the night already. My pain was 95% gone the next day. Thank you so much for Dr. Safa and his team. I am so happy to find you! I would definitely recommend you to my friends and family!

I came in from out of state after having some not so great dental work done. They saw me right away and were AMAZING. She was so sweet and talked me through every step of the procedure. I wasnt afraid at all and I normally get very skittish during dental appointments. She numbed me up so well with the tropical I didn’t even feel the needle she used to numb me up fully. My insurance was from out of state and they struggled to get ahold of them but they put huge efforts and offered me a solution until the insurance could be taken care of. They did get ahold of the insurance and had the total reimbursed to me. Overall, I would definitely recommend Santa Clarita Endodontix.

Andrina F. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


No one I know likes root canals.  My problem was complicated so I was referred to Santa Clarita Endodontix.  The office was hard to find but the staff called me and guided me to their door.  The office was neat and clean.  The office staff was nice and professional. Be aware, they will ask you to complete your medical history on a laptop.  This may be troubling to someone not computer literate. Afterwards, Dr. Safa came in, explained my situation, and answered my numerous questions with patience and a smile.  He estimated my time in the chair at 45 minutes.  He completed my treatment in about 30 minutes.  The entire time he checked my responses to see if I was comfortable.  The doctor and his assistants were very attentive and made me feel very comfortable.  I left feeling satisfied. That night and next morning, I still had some pain – normal.  I called the office, it was a Saturday morning, the phone rolled over to the assistant’s home.  Lisa answered my call, listened to me, called the doctor and ordered me a stronger prescription. She was so nice although the office is not open on Saturdays.  My husband picked up my new prescription, but fortunately I didn’t need to use it.  I can honestly say it may have helped just to know they were there for me.  They couldn’t make the root canal less painful, but they showed they cared. Thank you Santa Clarita Endodontix. Andrina F. Canyon Country

I was referred to this office by my primary dentist to have a root canal. As it was, I had just chosen my primary dentist and am so happy with them and what a double treat when they recommended me to Santa Clarita Endodontix. I can’t say enough of how great the staff was and Dr. Safa was absolutely wonderful. I have never had a more painless root canal like I did today. I hope I never need another root canal in the future, but if I do, I will for sure be going back to them. Thank you Dr. Safa and staff!

Susan K. from Tujunga, CA (Source: Yelp)


Fantastic endodontist. If you can call having root canal fun, this was fun! Doctor Safa took me immediately on an emergency basis, did the evaluation and root canal during the same visit, at the lunch hour no less.  He was absolutely painless and fast. He works at a fevers pitch to get it all done properly, exceedingly skilled, no waste of time here, without a bit of pain. Fantastic. I can’t recommend him more.  Come on down!!! He is the dentist to use.

Billy Robideaux (Source: Facebook)


What a amazing staff and Dr. They knew I did not like Dentist because of prior problems.. They made my root canal experience great!! Never felt anything during the procedure. Plus he played classic rock during.. Definitely would recommend them if you ever have to have a root canal

Brianne N. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have always gotten anxiety in the dentist’s office, so when I found I would have to get a root canal I was definitely not excited to go. My sister-in-law and my dentist both referred me to Santa Clarita Endodontix and I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience! The staff was very friendly and attentive which helped to calm my nerves. My doctor was thorough and ensured me that the procedure would be quick and painless. He is very experienced and made me feel comfortable as he talked me through the procedure. I have recommended this office to my friends and family and I plan on coming back for any future procedures. Goodbye anxiety, hello healthy teeth!

Sherry S. from San Dimas, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Safa and his lovely assistant Lourdes were absolutely amazing !!!  I am deathly afraid of the dental work and needles. I was treated with the most respect from both the dr and the assistant. They were very reassuring and caring.  Not only did I not feel a thing but it was the quickest 1/2 hour I have ever had.  I would recommend this dr and his office to any friend or family. I have never been more pleased.  Thank you very much Dr.Safa and staff. You made a horrifying situation a great experience.

Julie F. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a wonderful experience!  Aside from a root canal, I was in the chair at 1:03 and finished at 1:44.  The touches that mattered the most to me were the entire chair covered in disposable plastic, the wiping down of the safety glasses I wore, the q-tip of chap-stick to coat my lips so they wouldn’t dry out during the procedure and then an i-pod with a wonderful presentation of after-care. Dr. Safa is calming, reassuring, tells you everything he is doing, but most of all, he never left the chair, focused on me completely and his assistant as well.  There is no multi-patient tasking.  YOU are their focus.  Left the office with 2 RX’s in case I needed them and a complimentary lip balm.  This is the BOMB—I wish they were my general dentistry office. Thank you all for a wonderful experience.  I’m writing this the day after and I have no pain, nothing.  Just a nice memory.

Gustavo O. from California (Source: Yelp)


I’m really happy that I was referred to Santa Clarita Endodontix by my dentist. After having pain on and off in my molar where I had already had a cavity filled twice, I was happy to finally go through with a root canal. The assistants that helped during my procedure, Lourdes and Cristina, were very friendly and accommodating and they made sure I was comfortable and answered any questions or concerns that I had. The procedure itself was very painless and efficient. I was impressed at how fast and I was in and out of the building. No wait time, quick processing, friendly staff, and a well-done procedure. Very happy with my experience here. I would definitely recommend it.

Tim B. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Upon the recommendation from my dentist on Friday I was able to schedule a Monday appointment at SCE. After filling out my new-patient paperwork, I was taken right in with little to no waiting. This place puts you at ease because the facility oozes technology. There’s no question they’re using the latest tools and techniques. Less than an hour later I had three fresh holes drilled/cleaned up molar #2 and I was on my way. They gave me prescriptions for pain meds that I never even filled because there was no pain. I had some discomfort a week later but it had to do with chewing with that side of my mouth, which I was instructed not to do. My dentist replaced the temporary filling Dr. Safa had placed over my root canal work site and I am finally pain free in my mouth.

Randy O. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Came here as a referral from a dentist I’m not very fond of for various reasons but the fact that they refer at all, ugh, I digress. Anyways, this place is the biz. Staff; warm and inviting. All smiles and willing to work around your schedule. Told them I was in a rush during my follow up and I really felt like they tried to get me out quickly. Even the nurse ran and got the doc after my x-ray like “hurry please he has to get back to work”. That was awesome, I see you Lourdes! Doc. Safa; clear, concise confidant and quick af! Dude saw something my dentist couldn’t. Had a toothache over a tooth wherein which I thought a full root canal had been performed like 4 years prior. Turns out guy left one of the 3 roots alive and now this last one had became inflamed and infected. He was able to get in there, root out that nerve, fill it with some kind of stuff to help kill the infection and save my current crown which saved me hundreds fooor suuuure. I can’t speak on every doctor there but the gentlemen in the picture on their website, Doctor Safa, knows what hes talking about, doing and his staff all seem like they care about their patients. Even the kind receptionist upfront called to follow up to make sure everything was okay after my last visit. Super cool! I dont do social media but I felt the need to share this story with a community I felt would care. The dental industry can feel really slimy at times and it’s just really nice to know theres a place like this where you can get a procedure done like mine so quick and painlessly. I wish I could just get my regular check ups here but they said it wasnt that kind of place. Haha! Anyways, thanks again all of you for such an awesome experience in what’s usually an uncomfortable situation to be in!

Julie Ann R. from Valencia, Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Nobody likes getting a root canal, but the staff and Dr. Safa made the experience practically on par with a dental cleaning (in my opinion). They got me in early in the morning to work around my personal schedule and my own dentist’s schedule to get a crown put on later in the day.  I was out within less than an hour.  All the staff were professional, kind, and helpful. (I even asked the personnel up front- out of earshot of Dr. Safa as to whether their opinion of him and whether they were well treated- and whether he deserved a good rating–.  They didn’t hesitate.

Robert R. from Simi Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely hate going to the dentist, as I’m sure most are, especially when it means getting a root canal! The dr, male doctor but I forgot his name, was super nice but also had a “get it done” vibe which I loved. He made me feel very confident and comfortable. He had to do a root canal on a molar that had three roots! He not only got it done fast he did a great job doing it. He kept me in the loop the whole time telling me “15 minutes left, then 5 minutes left etc. ” I really loved that he did that because I was able to push through thinking to myself ” I only have 5 minutes left etc.” The only time I felt pain was when he hit the root which anytime I’ve had a root canal done, you ALWAYS get that quick 1 second pain from the root, I don’t care how numb you are. Overall the staff was great and I would def go back. The only thing is that I was a referral and never asked if I could just go there instead of being referred.

Tracey A. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


The doctor and his staff at Santa Clarita Endodontix are absolutely incredible! I have always been fearful of going to the dentist and when I found out I had to have a root canal I was not happy. Santa Clarita Endodontix was highly recommended, and I was in pain so I went. I have to tell you if you are like me, hesitant of dental work, Santa Clarita Endodontix will dispel those fears. They are truly amazing. It was not only painless, it was done in an hour!! The doctor and his staff were friendly, very accommodating and some of the kindest people I have ever met. If you have need an Endodontix ever….. go to Santa Clarita Endodontix. You won’t regret it. They’re truly the best. Tracey A

The TLDR version: Yes, if I ever need another root canal, this is where I would go. I highly recommend Dr. Safa!! Detailed version: I broke a molar Thursday night. It was the first time I’ve broken a tooth. My dentist, Dr. May Conte across the street from here, referred me to him on Friday morning. Be Friday at 12:30 I was in his office for my procedure. I appreciate how quickly I got an appointment to fix the damage. His staff was reassuring and knowledgeable. His assistant during the procedure was fantastic. She made sure I could hear the music over the speakers so I could focus on that and not the procedure being done. She made sure I was calm and got my husband for me so he could help me relax more before things got started while I was numbing up. I was quite nervous. Dr. Safa was incredibly gentle, reassuring, confident and checked on my comfort several times during the procedure. He let me know after the initial exam that my tooth could be saved and that he had broken the same one in the past himself. His demeanor was professional and encouraging. The whole visit from the time we walked in the door to when we left was just over an hour. So fast compared to what I’ve heard over the years about root canals from friends and family. I was given a Motrin 800mg prescription for pain. They made sure I was going to Dr. Conte for a crown next week and wished me well.

Ashlie A. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


You don’t normally hear someone raving about their root canal experience. But I cannot stop talking about the amazing and professional service I received at Santa Clarita Endodontix. Dr. Safa was gentle and explained everything to me. He normalized the experience and the fears related to having a root canal. I have a six week old infant and he was able to have me in and out between his feedings. I tell everyone if the are unfortunate enough to need a root canal, they should go to this office. They even called me the next day to check in to see how I was doing, talk about customer service!

Christina M. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


My thanks and appreciation go out to Dr. Safa and his assistant Lourdes who did my root canal procedure today.  I was made to feel very comfortable with everything being explained to me, and the concern from how I was doing before, during and after the procedure.  And the entire staff is so kind and gracious with the time they spend with you, from greeting you at the front desk to helping you with any concerns or questions you may have about your appointment, Insurance options etc. And the office is not only beautiful but immaculate! Thank you again, Christina McClure.

Magne S. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Like most people, I had reservations going to the dentist and it freaked me out that I had to do a root canal. Kept putting it off, and telling myself “I’m still ok” until I couldn’t really push it aside anymore. Searched online for a specialist and read reviews for each office and finally made the step to make an appointment – online (still resisting a bit). After a few days they left a message on my phone, asking me to call back to schedule an appointment. I called the morning after and was able to book an afternoon appointment. Processing was quick and I found myself sitting on the dentist chair after I’ve finished signing docs. It freaked me out how fast things were going and I wasn’t really over my fear but Ms Lourdes chatted me up and kept me calm while she did her thing. Dr. Safa came in and reassured me that there was nothing to worry about and took care of me. He did the procedure in under 30 mins. I was in over my head for nothing. I was so happy I went to get my treatment done here.


Dr. Safa attended the University of Minnesota to accomplish his under-graduate studies and obtained his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the USC in 1990. After practicing general dentistry and growing more passionate for the field through teaching, he was compelled to return to academia to complete his certification in Endodontics at USC in 1993. For the past 25 years he has remained fully committed and passionately dedicated his life to teaching and practicing Endodontics. He has respectfully and honorably held academic positions both nationally and internationally. Dr. Safa is commended by many for being a proud recipient of the “American Association of Endodontics (AAE) Award.” His knowledge and wisdom have been a great desire which has led him to lecture extensively and has even published numerous research projects and articles. Dr. Safa is sought after not only for his persistency in meeting his lifetime patients’ needs, but for his character and welcoming demeanor. He is empathetic to every one who enters his office. To him it is his life’s work. Root canals are definably his specialty in meeting countless satisfied smiles. A patient’s only regret is not coming sooner. Dr. Safa continuously strives for the best, and brings everyone with him … his passion for the field is contagious, as his work atmosphere reflects. “For me Endo was love at first sight! I can remember the first day of our pre-clinical endo course. I found it both challenging and intriguing. Even after all these years I still look forward to going to work and treating my patients.”
