"I have been avoiding going to the dentist for about three years. Recently, I needed a root canal and happened to call Dr. Greenhalgh’s office. The entire staff is helpful and friendly. They seem genuinely concerned about my comfort and have helped me deal with my anxiety. Thanks to Dr. Scott Greenhalgh and his team, I was able to have the root canal done, a much-needed crown made, plus other dental work taken care of. I am so thankful that I found Dr. Scott Greenhalgh!"
