Mark and Matthew Haddad have always been close. “For Christmas, we’d usually get the same sweater, just different colors,” Mark said. So, after they completed dental school it wasn’t a big surprise that they both decided to become endodontists. Mark and Matthew embarked on the same journey for their specialty training at the renowned Department of Endodontics at Boston University School of Dental Medicine.
When asked why they chose endodontics as a dental specialty, Dr. Mark said the opportunity to take an experience with a notoriously negative connotation and change that perception was a challenge they couldn’t pass up. It was also important they establish their own practice, where they could set the parameters for superior patient care and not adhere to someone else’s paradigm that focused on quantity over quality. “Root canals have always gotten a bad rap,” Dr. Mark said, “so we go way beyond what people are expecting to ensure each patient has a pleasant experience that’s as pain-free as possible. That includes spending time explaining what we’re going to do and not proceeding until the patient is ready.”
Lou M., who has been to the office a few times over the past two years, said, “The office staff has always been courteous. Dr. Matthew Haddad is welcoming, good with explanations and has kept procedures 99.9 percent painless. Ashley is an awesome assistant and has always put major effort in making me feel comfortable. I’ve actually left a couple of times thinking ‘Aw…it’s time to leave?’”
An endodontist performs complex dental procedures many general dentists prefer not to, including:
- Root Canal Therapy
- Apicoectomy (root-end resection)
- Cracked Teeth Repair
- Endodontic Retreatment
- Endodontic Treatment/Root Canal Therapy
- Root Canal Therapy
- Traumatic Tooth Injury Care
A dental office where people hate to leave? Maybe it’s the upscale décor that makes you wonder if you’re really at a dental specialist. Or perhaps the new technology and state-of-the-art equipment mean most procedures are completed quicker than you’d expect. The ceiling-mounted TVs and headphones certainly keep you entertained, and sedation options ensure you’re comfortable. Most likely it’s because Drs. Matthew and Mark Haddad and their associates are not only highly skilled, well-educated and well-trained, but they genuinely care that their patients have a great experience.
“I think the reason a lot of people had bad experiences in the past is because years ago, dentists didn’t numb the area well enough,” Dr. Mark said. “Even today, people expect a root canal to be a bad experience, and they can get pretty worked up by the time they come in. When they leave, we often hear them say they can’t believe how easy it was.”
Cherise G. said, “I recently had a root canal performed here, and I have to say, hands down this was the best dental procedure experience I have ever received. I felt no pain, the staff was very professional, the doctor was efficient and informative, and I was guided through the procedure each step of the way. I left feeling like I went in for spa treatment. I highly recommend this location for root canal services. Thank you for a pain free experience!”
Many Gulf Coast Endodontic patients are referred by their general dentists, but some patients come because they’ve been told they need a root canal and find the practice on their own. If your dentist says you need a root canal or recommends you see an endodontist, call Gulf Coast Endodontics for a consultation today.
