I had my first and only root canal in 2004, and I went to John Bull for the procedure. I have since seen that he was voted one of the Best Endodontists in Seattle by Seattle magazine in 2005. He is very friendly and immediately puts you at ease. He explains exactly what a root canal is and walks you through what to expect. I think I had to have two appointments total (one for prep work, one for the procedure). He works expertly and efficiently - the root canal was over before I'd even heard the first half of the CD in my walkman (hey, it was 2004. I didn't have an iPod yet). Amazing. And, best of all, I never felt a thing.
