I'm getting a root canal from Dr. Griffiths, which isn't fun in any case. I can say that Dr. Griffiths and his staff made the best of an uncomfortable experience. They took my blood pressure and heart rate and made sure I was comfortable before they began any work. It's the little things like putting Vaseline on my lips to keep them from cracking while they had all that stuff in my mouth that helped me feel cared for. It was reassuring.
