Dr. Pelka is an absolute expert not only clinically, but with personal interactions with his patients (and staff). He really made the uncomfortable thought of having a root canal into a pain-free, efficient, and easily performed procedure.

I'm almost 60 and haven't been to a Dentist for quite sometime but had a tooth act up about 2 months ago and I went to Dental and Dentures for an eval and they suspected a root canal would be needed for the tooth. They referred me to Dr. Pelka and with hesitation I scheduled an appointment. Being this would be my first root canal I was definitely nervous and with reservation went in to the app't. I watched my daughter when she was 10 get a root canal and I thought back then which was 18yrs ago that no way would I be able to go through that. Once Dr. Pelka came in he explained everything and did his preliminary and confirmed the tooth needed root canal. After the numbing was affective he proceeded and through the whole process I didn't feel anything. The worst part is the numbing itself but after that no feeling. Through the whole process they made sure I was fine and made it a pleasant experience. Dr. Pelka and his staff did a fantastic job and I certainly would go back if needed.

First of dentists give me anxiety but let me tell you from the time Dr Pelka sat down and explained everything single step he was taking for my root canal i felt at ease and I had INSTANT relief. Such an amazing dentist and staff I’d gladly refer anyone to him for your major needs. I’ve never been happier with how fast my appointment was, how they were all friendly once I walked in the door and my overall experience was better than anticipated.

Dr. Pelka is an exceptional person. He is not only very skilled, but he has excellent bedside manner. He has the latest technology and explains everything using his computer graphics. He and his assistants put patients at ease and are very warm, yet professional. Dr. Pelka is sensitive to the patient feeling pain. I felt none! I would highly recommend him to anyone.

My experience was top notch, even relaxing, and that's saying something because I had a root canal! Every single person in this office is super kind and helpful. Dr Pelka is extraordinary. It was well worth the 2.5 hour drive!

Staff and Dr. Pelka were great but the charge was extremely high for the root canal particularly not being told this didn't include the crown which would cost another $1000.00!! Should have had the tooth pulled this is extremely high when you have to pay out of pocket! I would not recommend, if you don't have dental insurance It will take 4 months of my social security to pay for this. This isn't for low income people!!

Dr. Pelka and his assistant clearly explained my options and the procedure. They took every sanitary procedure needed per CDC guidelines. They even let me wear my Airpods and listen to Hamilton during the procedure, which basically made a root canal a pleasant experience.

I needed to have a root canal on April 21, and was very anxious because it was my first. All the staff was very pleasant professional. Dr. Pelka explained everything very clearly and I felt very comfortable, and had minimal discomfort.
