Columbia, MO |
Even though his staff and him were friendly, he gave me a bad solution for my treatment. I had a fractured tooth from an accident, while 2 dentists said that I only need crowning, he told me that that tooth lost the root and I need to extract it and have an implant.

I was in severe pain last weekend. Dr. Lawson's office was able to schedule me quickly. The front desk staff was very friendly. The doctor's assistant was very compassionate. I am very afraid of needles and he was gentle. I experienced no pain with the injection. The root canal went very well and I would highly recommend this office. I would like to say he gave me the best dental experience ever. I wish he could be my general dentist!

My experience today was amazing! I was told that I would need a root canal and was referred to Dr. Lawson's office. From my first contact with the staff and throughout my treatment I was made to feel comfortable and all of my questions were answered. I appreciate the extra effort they went to diffusing my original anxiety and turning it into a great experience. Root canals don't have to be scary at their office. Thank you!

I canceled an appointment because Sally was so hostile on the phone. She messed up on my schedule and then got mad even though it was her mistake. I asked to speak with Dr. Lawson and she said he doesn't take calls. If he's not willing to care, he doesn't deserve my business.

I was rather apprehensive about getting a root canal but Dr. Lawson and his staff are so good at what they do I was soon at ease. The procedure went very quickly and they made sure I never felt any pain. I was able to go right back to work. I would highly recommend him.
