Dr. Blackmore is the most skilled and caring dentist I have ever had. I recently had a couple of crowns done at his practice. My experience was simply amazing. In the past, I've had dentists who have not succeeded in numbing me completely and that have had to give me another Novocain shot in the middle of my procedure due to my pain. Dr. Blackmore gets it right everytime. He is a perfectionist and makes the extra effort to get it exactly right. His staff is courteous and caring. They are constantly watching to ensure that you are comfortable while the work is happening. As if that weren't enough - despite all the hammering and filing and gum work, I had NO pain later that day or the next. I have the greatest respect for Dr. Blackmore. He is the best dentist I have ever had in 20+ years and 4 states.
