Dr. Cotter and his staff went above and beyond to help me. I had been to several other doctors over the course of months and was in constant pain. Dr. Cotter not only performed surgery that saved my front tooth, but continued to help me recover from complications caused by previous treatments. I highly recommend this group.

Dr. Cotter takes the time to fully explain procedures. Never rushes. You feel you are the only patient there. Staff very courteous and friendly. Would highly recommend Dr. Cotter. He is a true professional and I never felt an discomfort with my procedure. It was my first root canal and I would not be concerned if I had to have another one. Don't get me wrong, it is a bit uncomfortable keeping your mouth open, however, I never felt any pain or discomfort. Wonderful Doctor!

I was referred for a root canal procedure on a broken, infected tooth. Despite a needle phobia, I had no problem with Dr Cotter administering anesthetic injections several times over 3 visits. He has a very gentle touch and a reassuring manner, as well as technical excellence. Could not have a better experience!

Dr. Cotter brought his staff in on the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend to do emergency surgery on me. They took great care of me (and still do)! I would recommend him all day long. Nice people. Caring.

I have been a patient of Dr. Cotter's for several years. He is conservative in his approach. He exhausts all options to save a tooth from root canal or extraction. He has worked very closely with my primary dentist concerning my care, always considering what is best for me. I had a cracked tooth that he was able to perform a root canal on and save rather than having to have it extracted. His fee's may be higher than some, but his skill, attention to detail and patient care goes above & beyond!
Thank you Lisa for your thoughtful review. It truly means a lot to me. Warm regards Dr Michael Cotter

Dr. Cotter makes everything to easy to understand! He goes over all step step by procedures to ensure patients know what they will be getting. He also gives a number of different treatment options and allows the patient to be apart of choosing what they are most comfortable with. He has such a gentile touch and really makes pain go away!!!!! He works on building good trust and communication with his patients and also becomes a friend. Dr. Cotter is THE BEST!!!! He's also got such a great staff.

Dr. Cotter was great! He took his time during the consultation and answered all of my questions and concerns. The root canal was painless and the office staff was very warm and accommodating. Would definitely recommend Dr. Cotter to a family member or friend. Chris R

He goes a long way to make it look like his prices justify the work. His work is nothing special and he convolutes the process to make his outrageous prices sound reasonable. Save yourself the headache and go somewhere else.
