    Where do I begin? Dr. Sturgill and her amazing staff made me feel welcomed and comfortable. During the root canal procedure; I felt very relaxed and at one point was falling asleep. I have had root canal treatment in the past by other providers; I can say that Dr. Sturgill was the best.She is professional, kind, and highly skilled in what she does. Her staff was friendly and caring and made the experience that much more pleasant.

    I’m a physician who spends most of my time sticking needles in other people to make them feel better, but (and I admit this to my patients) I absolutely cannot stand being on the sharp side of those things. Couple that with some not-so-great experiences with my childhood dentist, and you’ve got someone who would rather do hard labor than go to the dentist. I’ve seen Dr. Sturgill twice-needles both times-and I didn’t feel anything. I just sat there waiting for it to hurt, and it never did. I’ve never had a better experience seeing a dentist. Her staff is friendly and professional, her office makes me want to renovate mine, and I don’t lose sleep the night before appointments anymore. I would recommend her to anyone.

    Receptionist was pleasant. Callie, endodontic assistant was professional, skilled, very personable and cared about my comfort through the root canal process. (I have some arthritis in my neck)! Dr. Sturgill was professional, skilled, very kind and also paid attention to my comfort. I had no pain afterward at home and Callie actually called to check on me the next day!
    This staff seemed genuine and not "put on!"

    Dr. Riley Sturgill and her staff literally are my heroines because they came to my rescue when I was desperate. When I was suddenly slammed with excruciating face pain in mid-April, businesses were still closed due to CV-19 Regulations. Both my Dentist and Hygienist had retired and I had not gotten a new dentist yet. Although dental offices were considered necessary services most of the 2-dozen I called had chosen to close. The ones that were open were only accepting established patients in an emergency. Dr. Sturgill, out of the kindness of her heart, agreed to see me. Turns out I had fractured a tooth and needed a root canal. And the bacteria collected in the roots had somehow migrated into the lymph channels in my face, which were pressing on nerves and causing the horrible pain. There was so much infection I needed to have the first root canal, then "Root Canal: the Sequel" after the infection was treated. Dr. Sturgill did a fantastic job on both procedures, which were pain free thanks to her knowledge. She was also able to explain the face pain to me and knew exactly what antibiotic to use to treat the infection. Her staff were equally competent, kind and gentle with me. They went above and beyond to meet hygienic standards needed to protect from the Covid virus. I felt as if I was in the safest place in town in her beautiful office. The frosting on the cake is that she gave me a discount since I did not have insurance. What a great person and Endodontist; I highly recommend her!

    Everyone at Sturgill Endodontics was so wonderful to my daughter and myself. They stepped up and made time to treat the worse abscess I've ever seen, my daughter was in terrible pain when we went in but the staff took such good care of her that she left already feeling better! Knowing that you will be cared for in such a gracious manner means there is no doubt that we will always return to Sturgill Endodontics for all our future treatment.

    I am forever grateful for Dr Sturgill and her wonderful staff. I was very nervous going in but they were super comforting and nice. No pain during or after the procedure. Now I can chew on my left side. They called me the next day to check on me and to say happy wedding day (they remember it). Thank you all.

    Dr. Sturgill has done two root canals for me. Going to the dentist for work like this is never ever pleasant. However, Dr. Sturgill and her crew are amazing. From start to finish, they are kind, gentle, thorough, and very professional. After each trip I felt fine when the anesthesia wore off, didn’t even have to take a Tylenol! The entire office is a place of calm and peace. I can’t say enough about the great work they do. I am so glad I found them.

    Wonderful experience all around for my 13 year old son! After trauma to his front teeth, he needed root canals on both. He was nervous at first but was calmed by Dr. Sturgill and sweet Patton. Everything was amazing from start to finish!

    I was sent to Dr. Sturgill for a 3-D scan by my dentist. She explained how beneficial and informative this type of x-ray would be for my dental care. Dr. Sturgill and her staff are great!

    Dr. Sturgill is nothing short of amazing!
    I was so self conscious of my teeth after getting hit with a softball. The trauma that my tooth had endured discolored my tooth severely and just was not pleasing. After having work done to my tooth by Dr. Sturgill I have confidence to smile again! Her office is so beautiful, clean, and so welcoming! She has the cutest little fur baby to greet you at the door and make you feel more comfortable also! I highly recommend Sturgill Endodontics for any of your root canal needs, discoloration of the tooth needs, and re-treatment needs!

    Sturgill Endodontics saved my tooth and my bank account! I was told by my previous dentist I would need to have my tooth extracted and an implant placed in its place($4-5k). My only explanation I received was my tooth was to far gone to be saved. This tooth so happened to be a root canal I had done by a general dentist yes I know slap on the wrist. I came to Dr. Sturgill and her staff for a second opinion before taking my dentists recommendation on an implant. Dr. Sturgill and her amazing team were able to save my tooth and my bank account for a fraction of the cost I was looking at and I still have my tooth! Thank you so much Sturgill Endodontics for everything!

    When I was first told I needed a root canal I was terrified! Dr Sturgill squeezed me in a few days before thanksgiving and medicated my tooth to get me out of pain for the holidays! My experience was nothing but great, no pain at all during treatment or after. The office is absolutely beautiful, clean, and the sweetest fur baby to greet you at the door!!! Thank you Dr Sturgill!!!!

    After a failed root canal with a dentist a few years ago, I was highly recommended to Sturgill Endodontics by a friend of mine. The atmosphere is so inviting and calming that you forget you’re there for a root canal! The process itself was so smooth and virtually painless. Dr. Sturgill and her staff are so sweet and helpful!! If you or someone you know is in need of a root canal, make sure you go here!!

    Dr Sturgill and her staff are the best! She and her staff are professional and meticulous in what they do. She was very detailed in explaining what she was doing and why. No one enjoys a root canal but she made it a lot easier and completely painless.
    The office is lovely. She even brings her sweet therapy dog to the office daily. Her gentle golden retriever is a friendly addition for comfort and relaxation.

    After being in severe pain for several days, I finally went to my dentist who referred me to Dr. Riley Sturgill. I was amazed at how accommodating their office was right from the start. Knowing I needed to get in quickly, Michelle, the office manager, called and worked me in for that very next day. The EXCELLENT service I received from everyone in that office as impeccable! I have had root canals in the past, but this one was simply relaxing and I feel great the day after. Thank you Dr. Sturgill for everything you have done for me! I certainly would recommend you to anyone needing your care!
