Patient Review from Robin J
Dr. Ribera has performed three root canal treatments for me. He is meticulous, compassionate, and, I believe, the office is state of the art. He explains what he is doing, including what procedures/equipment he is using that are recent innovations. He understands the patient's anxiety and carefully explains what you are experiencing and any associated sensations. I have never experienced any pain under his care. He has a thorough command of my treatment history and communicates efficiently with associated professionals from whom I am getting treatment. In my opinion, he and his team are, simply put, the best!

Patient Review from Daniel B
Wow! Where do I begin? Let me start off by saying if you are looking for a specialists to take care of any tooth pain or handle your root canal, if you happen to find Dr. Kim Menhinick, with Advanced Endodontic Associates, you will be in great shape and no need to look any further! She is AMAZING and I will explain exactly why! First off, I have had quite a few root canals with different Endodontists and I am very familiar with the various levels of discomfort that goes along with getting a root canal! For all of these reasons, whenever you mention getting a root canal, folks gasp and immediately say “I’m so sorry”. Well, let me go ahead and say that Dr. Kim Menhinick will put all those worries and concerns to rest immediately from the very first time you see her. My first consultation appointment with her was INCREDIBLE! She was very PATIENT - listening to all of my concerns, THOROUGH - examining every single tooth in the related area, KNOWLEDGEABLE- explaining every single step she was taking and why she was taking that step, SENSITIVE - ensuring that I was not under any discomfort, and finally KIND - letting me feel like I was the most important patient in the world! On the day of my root canal procedure, Kim again explained the entire process to me, made sure I was comfortable, numbed me up really good, and we were off to the races! She took the time to make sure I was protected with the runner guard around my tooth to ensure no bacteria made it into my mouth and explained to me the signs to make with my hand if I ever felt any discomfort at all (spoiler, I never did feel any pain whatsoever). Dr. Kim Menhinick has state of the art equipment that helped to ensure my tooth was cleaned out entirely and completed the procedure very quickly! She is so great and efficient that my jaw was not even tired when she finished as she allowed me to rest my jaw a couple times which really helped! During the entire procedure she thoroughly explained what she was doing and kept me up to speed with what she was seeing. Dr. Kim Menhinick is an AMAZING Endodontist and I will recommend that all of my friends and family go to this specialist. She made a life long patient out of me! Thank you again for your amazing work!
