I imagine there are cleaner, more professional offices in the back alleys of Calcutta and Juarez. I read the reviews and decided to give this place the benefit of the doubt. The reviews of this place were far too generous. In my experience, there were no redeeming factors to be found. I’m new to the area and needed a ‘retreat’ for a root canal. I made an appointment and drove to Precision Periodontics & Endodontics in Clifton Park. The building itself isn’t impressive, but I’m not one to judge a book by its cover. I had already taken an afternoon off work so I decided to stick around. My interaction with the dental assistant should have been the ‘last straw’. He walked me down to the dark, dewy, cluttered basement (yes… they have a consultation room in the basement). He then began berating immigration attorneys and bragging about his security clearance for the DHS center in Albany. How was this related to my dental treatment? No idea. I’m neither an attorney nor an immigrant, but he somehow thought this was information I needed. I’ve had X-rays taken at many dentists in the past. I’ve never had anyone trip over the cord while the bite was in my mouth! As it ripped out of my mouth, the assistants jaw dropped in horror. He quickly recovered and explained that it’s ok because ‘we’ll be getting wireless X-Rays next month’. I breathed a sigh of relief after he left. I again considered walking out, but I’d already paid for the visit, so I sat in the dark and waited for the dentist. I tried to take comfort in the dozens of ‘certificates of participation’ hanging on the walls for Dr. Neda Azadivatan, a doctor who I would never meet. Eventually, Dr. Negron arrived and limply shook my hand. She quietly glanced at my XRays and then asked me to open my mouth. Without warning, she proceeded to use the probe to forcefully ‘tap’ my infected tooth asking if it hurt after each tap. It has taken me years to overcome my fear of the dentist. All of my courage was destroyed in that one simple interaction. Thankfully, the tooth didn’t hurt as my first root canal had remedied the pain years ago. After examining me, Dr. Negron asked why I was there, a question most physicians ask prior to beginning an exam. After I told her that my dentist said I needed another root canal before she could apply my dental crown, Dr. Negron said she could ‘open up the tooth and clean it out and see if there’s anything else that needs to be done while she’s in there.’ Was she going to really going to charge me a thousand dollars for an invasive procedure she wasn’t sure I needed? I’ve had a lot of dental treatment in the past and spent a lot of money. I’m lucky I’ve never had a dentist treat me without thoroughly explaining why they think I need the treatment and exactly what that treatment would entail. This was a first. Needless to say, I never returned to this office for treatment. I am still shaken by this interaction that occurred over a month ago and relived the trauma after receiving another bill for the consultation. They had mistakenly told me my insurance would partially cover the cost of the consultation. Though I must say, it’s worth $100 to never have to hear from this place again. Do be careful when choosing this facility. Places like this make money off patients in pain that require immediate treatment. It can be tempting to choose a facility like this when you have severe tooth pain but you have options. There are many qualified endodontists in the Capital Region that can ease your pain and your mind.

Do not waste time or money (and lots of both). They do not care about your circumstances--all they care about is bottom line--MONEY and next patient!!! Went for root canals--did not finish I left!!!

Professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Best care and great outcome.
I am currently under the care of DR Neda of Precision Periodontics & Endodontics and could not be more pleased with the care. I needed to have 2 implants placed after losing the teeth to infection. Dr Neda has performed all the work thus far including the removal of the old teeth, bone graft, and now the implants themselves. I have been to several appointments so far and have always been pleased by each segment of the visit From the wonderful reception staff, cleanings, and the flawless work completed by the gifted Dr Neda. Dr Neda has always taken the time to explain each process and answer all questions. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this practice for anyone needing the services they provide.

I was referred by my dentist to see if two teeth that had already had root canals could be salvaged. I saw Dr. Simon, who went over the x-rays and history. He was upfront and said that the teeth could not be saved, and explained to me about what needed to be done, because there has been bone loss and the teeth are infected. I appreciate that kind of candor. Don't play around and ask me what I want to do - tell me what the best course is and I'll take it. He had the assistant get me an appointment for two days later to see the periodontist and arrange for extractions, etc. If you like a practice that is upfront and genuinely concerned, this is the one for you.

High quality service
I had my root canal today. I can honestly say that it wasn’t bad at all. I didn’t feel any pain. I’ve had this procedure in the past at another dentist and it was terrible. This office made me feel very comfortable. Thanks again

I was so very happy with my experience at Precision Periodontics and Endodontics. I contacted them after my general dentist referred me to an endodontist who insisted that I wait two months for an appointment, despite the fact that I was experiencing pain in my mouth. I then called Precision and spoke to a very friendly and professional receptionist. After telling her that I was experiencing pain in the affected tooth she arranged for a speedy appointment. In fact, after getting an appointment, she called me a few days later and arranged for me to come in for an even earlier appointment. I was treated by Dr. Negron. She is highly professional and skilled and very gentle. Two of my teeth were infected and she succeeded in performing two root canals in one session. She did a superb job. Not only do I give Dr. Negron five stars, but I also give the entire staff five stars. They are all extremely kind and professional.

Professional, efficient, and painless. If root canals were a good thing, I would come here for 50 of them. Comfortable settting. Dr Harvey Simon and his assistant worked flawless together. Great team!! Hardly needed to speak to each other! They both knew the procedure inside and out! Very good experience!!!
