My kids and I have been going to Dr. Hampton for about 3 years. He's very good at numbing for things like root canals--you can barely feel the needle. I've heard horror stories about root canals but when he did mine, I didn't feel a thing! Once I did lose the filling out of my root canal (which was my fault) and it just so happened that I didn't have dental insurance at the time. Dr. Hampton charged a very affordable rate. Shelly, his assistant, is very friendly and good at what she does, too. It's close and convenient and I will continue to go back and I refer everyone I know to him.
