"I had horrible tooth ache. One doctor said I'll have to undergo surgery for removing my wisdom tooth( both sides upper left) including the cavity near a nerve- basically a root canalI was freaked outI went for a second opinion here and found that it's just minor cavities and the pain- the wisdom tooth probably moved a bit but I won't need surgery!!I was so relieved! Would definitely recommend. Actually I did too"- T.P. / Yelp / Nov 14, 2017
