    From appointing staff over the phone, to intake staff at the front desk, to Dr. Isom's clinical assistant Angie, to Dr. Isom himself, every single encounter with each person was reassuring, respectful, kind, professional, skilled, and effective. I was referred out of my usual dental group to Dr. Isom because my own group could not see me for over 6 weeks, despite my pain level. I ended up seeing Dr. Isom in less than a week. He and his staff came in and were able to see me when most of the county was closed due to the snowstorm.

    About Front Desk: See above. Re: disclaimer below: I am the godmother of the patient, who requires assistance with making appointments and communicating with his healthcare team.

    Root canal. Positive. Appears thorough and knowledgeable. Came recommended as experienced and as having a good success rate in saving teeth. Professional and efficient in regards to office procedures, billing, and chair side manners. Normative in being expensive. Areas of concern. Can't really tell in a few visits but seems to lack interest in & therefore to have poor coordination of care, individualized or patient centered care and pain management. Is clearly a nice friendly person who appears to be an excellent dentist and surgeon but seems to lack time/interest to be there consistently for his patients when concerns arise and to treat each person respectfully or maybe that is due to over scheduling and isn't always true. Probably great for people who are stoical but not so good if you have a history of anxiety or concern for pain, fear of discomfort during or after the procedures or would prefer optimization of comfort.

    About Front Desk: Positive. Very efficient with scheduling and insurance. Manner is Businesslike. Professional. Concerns. Appears too busy to address all individual concerns adequately or be completely accurate and helpful in solving problems.

    Dr Isom and staff worked incredibly well together and got me out of pain fast. The front office assistant greeted me with a warm smile and the dental assistant was very gentle and calmed any fear I had.

    About Front Desk: She was really nice and helped me with any questions I had.

    I originally went to see Dr. Isom to have an old root canal redone. It was causing some discomfort, and I was seriously scared of what this process was going to be like. The first appointment took about 2 hours, but I was comfortable and completely pain free the entire time. My face did not swell and I felt almost 100% myself the very next day. Dr. Isom gave me his cell phone number for emergencies, and called me himself a few days later to see how I was. Because I had a serious infection in the gums around that tooth, I had to go back 2 weeks later to get the temp filling put in. Another great experience. Last week I went back to my regular dentist to get the permanent filling put in. I had some discomfort when chewing on that tooth, which I mentioned at the time, and they went ahead and filled it. This was Friday evening. By Sunday morning, my face looked like it had a golf ball shoved into my left cheek. Dr. Isom was able to get me in Monday morning. He treated me gently and was once again amazing. The very next day my face was almost back to normal size and the pain was almost gone. I wish Dr. Isom could be my regular dentist, I respect him and what he does that much! He is so kind, honest & amazing at his job.

    About Front Desk: Wendy took care of me, listened to me, and just generally made me feel better. She put me at ease from the moment I walked in and sat in that massage chair. The front staff/accounting ladies are just as good at what they do. They made out a payment schedule as I couldn't pay for it all up front. I would reccommend this office to anyone.
