Patient Review

I was terrified at thought of root canal but the overall approach of this office and Dr Pipher was reassuring and professional. An extraction was necessary and I’m very relieved but also I’m grateful for the care and the explanations I received along the way. My dentist strongly recommended Dr. and I’m glad I listened. Thank you all.

Patient Review

After decades of subpar dental work, I became a patient of Dr. Pipher (along with Dr. Corino and Dr. Pacelli). They are truly the Dream Team of dental professionals. Dr. Pipher is so nice and so reassuring and does such an incredible job. After all the dental trauma I’ve suffered, there is NO ONE but Dr. Pipher who I would trust to do a root canal or endodontic procedure on me.

Patient Review

I am an extreme chicken when it comes to all things dental. I had never had a root canal before and was absolutely terrified of the prospect of having one... to the point where I was considering getting the tooth pulled, against the advice of everyone I consulted. I had a consult with an endodontist in another town who asked me what I was afraid of and then proceeded to tip me upside down in the chair like a bat so that I knew what I was getting into. As the blood rushed to my head, all I could think of was "NO WAY!!!!" But at the advice of a friend and a local oral surgeon's office, I decided to have a consult with Dr. Pipher before running for the hills. I cannot begin to express how wonderful Dr. Pipher was. From the very first moment in that consultation, he put me at ease. He appealled to my engineering background and explained to me with very sound logic exactly why I needed a root canal and should not get the tooth pulled... and he insisted that he would ensure that I would not be in any pain. Just listening to this man, reading his other client reviews, and knowing he's done something like 30,000 root canals gave me a great feeling of confidence in him. I knew if anyone could get me through this, he could. I went for the first appointment, still very nervous because I had been in excruciating pain with the tooth before, but much to my shock and amazement, I survived that first appointment without even the slightest twinge of pain! I didn't even feel the novocaine injections, and I was comfortable the entire time. Dr. Pipher has a great way of putting a chicken like me at ease, and he is extremely professional and skilled in his field. This morning I went back for round 2, and even he was amazed at how much more relaxed I was. He joked with me that I must have taken something to premedicate myself, but the truth is I did not... what enabled me to relax and do so well today is simply his own skill and the trust I had in him after the first half of the root canal. I cannot thank Dr. Pipher enough for a truly wonderful root canal experience. If I ever need one again, there is no doubt that he'll be doing it... and I will give him the highest recommendation I can to anyone I know who might need one too!!!

Patient Review

Dr. Pipher is my hero. I had a pain and didn't know why. I also had a flight to LA. He got me in. He made it painless. He fixed my tooth! I have no idea why a root canal has such a bad rap. I'd take Dr. Pipher to fix my pain any day. He rocks!

Patient Review

I appreciated the way the doctor left me to imagine what he was doing in the drilling and grinding "tooth preparation" stage. In steps a patient may not have experienced before, such as laser-based sterilization of root area or diagnostic "beeper" to ensure all bacteria removed, doctor explained what was happening. This was done in language I could understand, as even the simplest question was not possible, because the procedure required "open-wide" mouth all the time...

My daughter needed Dr. Pipher's expertise with her root canal. A wonderful doctor. She spoke very highly of Dr. Pipher. Not the dentist you want to see frequently (Endo) ; however we are glad to know he's here.

Patient Review

I am pleased, to be able to say that I am a patient of Dr.Pipher. And the office staff at this practice! Let's begin as you come into the office with Debbie, she is more than pleasant, professional, understanding, and extremely sensitive to your needs( especially when you are in pain). This office is overly, accommodating, and frankly if you call and you are in pain, they will do everything they can to have you seen that day! As we all know there are not many offices around that do this. Now onto Dr. pipher. I have been going there for about 10 years, and can honestly say that although I generally am in pain or have discomfort, Dr. P and his assistant( sorry I can't remember her name), take care of business instantly to relieve the pain. He is friendly, kind, understanding, professional, GENTLE,and he talks you through the process. I feel totally relaxed, not uptight, and most importantly, I am not just a number! I am treated with respect and understanding! This office is outstanding, from start to finish. Never hesitate to go there even if you are scared like me, I promise you, it will be great! I tell Dr. Pipher that he cannot retire, that is how incredible he is! I can call the office and ask silly questions and Debbie and the girls never seem bothered!! Dr. Piper and his staff are number one!! Thank you for all that you do!

Patient Review

Dr. Pipher is the fourth endodontist I've had and he is clearly in a class by himself. The consistent 5 out of 5 star ratings are no surprise. More than just an excellent bedside manner, from the moment you walk in you can feel the vibe of, "we are here to take care of you". Things are explained before, during and after procedures. Believe me when I say that, after 30 years of experience, Dr. Pipher feels no need to impress you with his skill. It's obvious. More importantly, he truly believes the patient comes first. He and his staff have demonstrated this many times to both myself and my spouse. Root canals and apicos are no fun, but if you need them, this is the place to go.

Patient Review

Dr Dennis Pipher was an exceptional Doctor. I had a very complicated root canal issue (not your average root canal) and Dr. Pipher was absolutely outstanding. He works with great precision and has a wonderful sense of humor which made the entire procedure seemless. His staff is happy and caring which is a testament to the way this office operates (pun intended.) Theres a fish aquarium too so your kids will enjoy that.

Facing a root canal procedure can be physically and emotionally challenging. Dr. Pipher and his staff meet that challenge with outstanding professional competence, knowledge and responsiveness. I highly recommend Dr. Pipher and his office. I would also like to express appreciation to Dr Pedott for her follow up and concern.

Dr. Pipher is an outstanding Endodontic dentist/surgeon. He truly deserves the accolades from colleagues who consistently rank him among the Top Docs in Fairfield County. He is highly experienced, attentive to the needs of his patients, makes unpopular procedures almost pleasant (!), and has a great sense of humor. I highly recommend him!!!!

Patient Review

About 8 years ago, I had my first "emergency" root canal with Dr. Pipher....my dentist called and he fit me in that day! I remember it being a simple, non-problematic procedure. I few later I moved to Arizona and had to have another root canal. They started the process and couldn't get the area around my tooth numb. I spent a fortune, not only on the root canal, but they had to have anesthesiologist come in to put me to sleep in order to do the procedure (The entire procedure totaled well over $2,000). A few weeks ago, I once again was referred to Dr. Pipher for another root canal. I explained my need for an anesthesiologist and they looked in my chart and said that in my previous experience with Dr. Pipher I didn't need that type of service and they assured me that he is very talented with Novocain. I trusted their advice and immediately headed into their office to try and get some relief. Within hours, maybe less, I was much more comfortable. Due to the decaying nerve being a molar and some other health complications, I was a challenging case. Dr. Pipher and his staff were very attentive/timely, compassionate, and thorough to make sure I received the best care possible. In fact, a couple hours later when I returned to work I was discussing my problem with a co-worker and she mentioned she had a wonderful endodontist if I needed one because she has had 4+ complicated root canals. I said I really like my physician and I think I am in good hands...she asked who my doctor was and I said, "Dr. Pipher," and she immediately said, "me too! Don't you just love him!?!" I definitely think he is very knowledgeable and has great bedside manner. I would refer his practice to anyone.

Patient Review

Dr. Pipher is just the best! I had not been to the dentist in years due to anxiety and bad experiences. I came to Dr. Pipher's office in significant pain, with a lot of restorative work to be done and he was there with me every step of the way. His easy going manner took my mind off of my anxieties and allowed me to complete the work in order to save my natural teeth. He has also treated my teenage son and daughter and was fantastic with them as well. Thank you Dr. Pipher!
