Dr. Shalini Tewary is simply the best. She performed an Apic surgery on one tooth and felt easier than doing a professional teeth cleaning. She took my concern about breathing issue very seriously and did her best to make me feel comfortable, haven’t seen that with any other dentist!...

I have to say this is an awesome experience. My first root canal was over 20 years ago at a regular dentist, that was a horrible root canal and I was petrified of dentists. I found a regular dentist and I go faithfully 2 times a year. He referred me to Dr. Tewary. I was scared to death but needless to say Dr. Tewary and the entire staff at Clifton Endodontics makes you so comfortable and at ease this root canal was nothing.
