Dr. May's bio

This content was provided by Dr. May "Dr. Joseph May graduated from University of Missouri-Kansas City Dental School in 1976 and graduated from University of Minnesota-Minneapolis School of Dentistry as a Specialist in Root Canal Therapy in 1978. Dr. May strives for excellence and does not give up on difficult cases. He has been a resident of Jefferson City, Missouri for 30 years and has seven children. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. May "Dr. May is a Root Canal Specialist called an Endodontist, who takes a more advanced approach by using digital radiographs (90% reduction in x-ray exposure), microscopic examination of detects and cracks  in teeth, by providing lasers and antibiotics as an intra-canal cleaning/ medication to increase long term success rate. Normally, our office places a final restoration for an added savings to patients of $100 to $200.   When you get a quote for root canal treatment be sure to ask does this cover the cost of a final permanent filling in tooth.   Dr. May offers at no charge to retreat or perform surgery if the root canal treatment fails during the first year if he did the original RCT.  Most local dentists and root canal specialists/ Endodontists charge the same fee to retreat or perform surgery if your tooth should fail.   Success rate for root canal treatment has been nationally 80% for general dentists and over 95% for root canal specialist. "

I am completely satisfied with Dr. May's excellent work. There are plenty of dentist in business whose primary focus is on posh surroundings and a stable of young women to assist them. Dr. Mays' focus is on the patients' outcome. I highly recommend him.

Why don't all dentists use...more

Dr May really does cater to cowards. I have a lot of anxiety with dentists. I always have and perhaps let my problem tooth get really bad before I did anything about it.
