My daughter needed a root canal and she's terrified of the dentist. I searched for someone in-network that understood her fear and went with Dr. Fenster. Right from the start, he put her at ease, explained everything that needed to be done so she understood (she's 10) and just set her at ease. Even better...he sang a duet with her when they were done! But don't take my word for it, take it from my daughter: 'mommy, that was not as bad as I thought it was going to be!!' :)

Dr Fenster performed root canal therapy on two of my teeth in 2017 and also treated my wife in 2018. Our root canals were completed within two visits with minimal discomfort and a complete success. Thank you Dr. Fenster and your staff for excellent endodontic services. We would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Fenster to any of our family and friends.

As a first time patient the experience was an excellent one. Dr. Fenster was friendly and welcoming. He was thorough in his approach, explaining what was to be done. Most importantly, he inspired confidence in his work. Assistant Gabby was also friendly and helpful. Having a root canal is not a joyous experience, however, Dr. Fenster made it as pleasant as possible. I look forward to my next visit.

Dr. Fenster and his assistant are remarkable professionals. He is also a compassionate and extremely generous person. I accompanied a young neighbor without insurance to undergo a root canal. He has a great sense of humor and the procedure was done with the least possible discomfort. I highly recommend him.

I had a painful abscess and received the first available appointment. After taking an x-ray and confirming my diagnosis, Dr. Fenster explained the procedure and did the root canal. He carefully and patiently cleaned and disinfected the canal, making sure I was comfortable during the process. It took just over an hour and I experienced very little pain. Dr. Fenster has a great sense of humor which keeps your mind off the procedure and makes the time pass quickly. He is highly recommended.

Dr. Fenster was caring as he explained what was going on. He made me feel very comfortable, despite me being a "scared patient." The staff are very helpful and make your experience the best possible.

Dr Fenster & his team are extremely professional, knowledgeable & so skilled. I thought my lower front teeth were gone & had to be replaced with implants after an ice hockey incident. All 3 different dental offices I went to before said so but Dr Fenster said that he believed he could fix it, which he did and my lower front teeth are now perfectly healthy & sound again thanks to him. I can warmly recommend Dr Fenster & his team cause they are very professional & nice people! Thank you Dr Fenster

Dr. Fenster has a charming manner that shows genuine care and interest in his patients that many medical professionals have lost by the time they have developed the high level of skill he has.

You will be well cared for by Dr Fenster and his staff.

Terrible endodontist. Did root canal in the wrong tooth and would not take any responsibility for his mistake. Invented a story to cover his mistake. At first meeting initially pleasant but turned dismissive and unconcerned. He was clearly not paying attention to what he was doing. Very unprofessional.

It's been many years since I moved to Florida and have yet to find a dentist in dr. Fensters specialty that can compare to his skill and his ability to make you feel less anxious during the procedure. I remember almost looking forward to my appointments. There never seemed to be any pain before during and after my visits. I miss his gentle hand and soothing manner and can't recommend him and the office enough. My best wishes to him. Glad I found this page

This is the first time I have had a dental procedure that was completely painless and with no anethesia. It was almost fun to have this root canal done. Dr. Fenster and his staff are terrific. Knowledgeable, understanding and with a terrific sense of humor. I heard that the Dr. will even serenade you with his guitar while waiting for the anesthesia to take effect.

Dr. Fenster has the very highest level of educational and professional credentials, 30+ years of experience in his field, a busy practice in a pleasing setting, and pleasant staff. He called me back immediately by cellphone -- holiday long weekend (10AM Saturday, again Sunday, July 3rd) -- put me into his schedule as soon as his office support staff were back at work (9AM July 5), provided care that could not have been better. Great referral! No more pain, saved my tooth instead of extraction!
