Recently I had a toothache that felt like it could collapse the foundation of my house.
I was searching for a dentist to do oral surgery in one visit and had a hard time finding one.
Before this incident I went to my local hospital for a root canal and they asked me to come back in 2 weeks, which was not optimum for me. When someone is faced with excruciating pain they dont have time for a waiting game.
I went home to google emergency dentists and found some working out of different locations throughout New York City. After going all the way to Bay Ridge for a dental office that did not exist I came back to Crown Heights and found a dentist right on my corner.
They are located at 882 Nostrand Ave in Brooklyn, New York. The service was super friendly and the work was greatly done.
I got, what I continued to call, a Root Canal on one of my back molars.
Its actually an Oral Extraction when a dentist has to pull teeth, which is what I had performed.
A root canal, however, is when a dentist deadens the nerves in a tooth if they wish to save it. My tooth was beyond repair, which the dentists kept informing me was unfortunate because I was so young.
But the tooth was broken and causing me pain so I insisted on the extraction.
I rode into that surgical room like a valiant warrior.
The receptionist was very courteous and even offered me a discount, which I gladly accepted. The nurse was very caring and informative, and the dentist was delicate.
He did end up yanking a tooth out of my skull but he handled it as a mother handles her precious daughters’ tangled hair.
At the end we spoke about his 25 year experience as a Dentist, as well as the competition he has with the other dentists on Nostrand Ave.
Dr. Kirkland is highly experienced in his field and has many diplomas on his office wall to illustrate that. I highly recommend visiting this dental office for friendly, speedy, and satisfying work done on your pearly whites.
