Great experience at this office. From beginning to end everyone I encountered was kind, informative, and thorough. They went out of their way to make sure I understood everything that was going on and to make me as comfortable as possible under the circumstances.

The friendliest dentist and staff you could imagine. Everyone is a pro. Dr. Fathi is warm, good humored, and efficient. Really, everything was pleasant and painless. If you need a root canal, look no further.

Dr Fathi was recommended as a first choice from my regular dentist for a root canal because of her experience. The best testimonial that I can give is that I did not need to take any pain medication after the procedure.

Dr Fathi is the only Endodontics Doctor I and my family will go to. She is very friendly, professional, gentle, and has a plethora of experience behind her. I trust her 100% with my oral care. Her staff are all super welcoming and know what they are doing. I highly recommend Dr Fathi to anyone needing a root canal.

Dr. Fathi and the office staff were all wonderful! Dr. Fathi was patient, thorough, and caring! After the Novocain wore off, I experienced slight pain in the tooth she worked on after the root canal was completed. After a week, I'm still unable to eat on that side, due to the tooth's tenderness. Hopefully, I'll be able to comfortably eat on that side very soon. Overall, I think Dr. Fathi did a great job, and I appreciate all she did for me.

I anticipated my appointment with Dr. Fathi with considerable anxiety, having traveled from Arizona specifically for consultations with her. Dr. Fathi graciously agreed to see me, at the plea of her colleague, an esteemed expert in the field. Upon arrival, Amanda, her assistant, welcomed me warmly, efficiently handling all necessary formalities. Dr. Fathi not only met but exceeded my already high expectations, which were shaped by glowing recommendations from her peers. She generously devoted much time to discussing the various treatment options, thoughtfully outlining the pros and cons of each. It was evident that she has a great passion for the science and technology that she employs in service of her patients. Furthermore, her breadth of perspective and deep humanity left a lasting impression on me. I am looking forward, with considerably less anxiety, to returning to her as a patient.

I was in so much pain and was referred to Samaritan by my General Dentist this morning. Samaritan answered their phone and I was scheduled same day at 1:15pm. Five stars just for that. Came in as scheduled and Jennifer was so nice and I was glad to hear she would be helping out in my procedure. Went to the back a lil nervous and met Dr Fathi she was so outgoing and put me at ease instantly. I was kept informed at every step they did. It was a great experience considering I was having a root canal. I would not hesitate to refer my family and friends to Samaritan Endodontics. They were so awesome!! Thanks again Dr Fathi and Jennifer you guys are Endo rockstars!

I can’t say enough about what a positive experience I had at Dr. Fathi’s office. Dr. Fathi is so kind, caring and compassionate. I have a medical problem that requires the drilling to be done a certain way. I needed a root canal and could not find anyone willing to accommodate me. When I explained my situation to Dr. Fathi, she was so understanding and was open to following the procedure as I needed. The root canal went smoothly, painless, and no stress. Dr. Fathi is so kind and always has a smile on her face. I have the utmost confidence in her. Her office is super clean, state of the art, and actually is very beautiful as well. Her office staff is wonderful too. I highly recommend Dr. Fathi, and will be using her for all my future endodontic needs.

Dr Fathi is a gem (as are her office staff)! After a weekend with extreme tooth pain she fit me in at the end of the day on a Monday, she saved my tooth with an emergent root canal that was pain free and with a personality that completely puts you at ease. As a health care professional myself, I can assure you that she is professional, quick and very skilled at her craft. She prescribed the antibiotics and steroids with no need for pain medicine after the numbing wore off (although they were prescribed). Highly recommend.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fathi’s for 17 years after an initial referral from my general dentist. I have always found her to be honest, expert, communicative, and in every way an outstanding professional. Highly recommended.

From the moment I stepped into Dr. Fathi's Endodontics office, I was enveloped in a warm and inviting atmosphere. The staff exuded professionalism and kindness, setting the tone for a positive experience. Dr. Fathi herself is a true gem - genuine, personable, and radiating a confident energy that immediately put me at ease. Her expertise was evident as she performed my root canal with such skill that I found myself drifting off, almost forgetting I was in a dental chair. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Fathi to anyone in need of endodontic care. She is a true master of her craft, making a typically daunting procedure feel surprisingly painless and even pleasant."

The entire office belonging to Dr. Fathi helped me have an easy and smooth experience. I was greeted kindly, consulted in a friendly and informative manner, and the root canal was a breeze. This wasn't my first dental procedure unfortunately (with other endodontists) but today was by far the quickest and calmest. The office is beautiful and has the latest tools and equipment. Dr. Fathi and her assistant Jennifer made me feel very taken care of and I trusted them completely. She also was able to keep my original crown from splitting which took precise and experienced techniques. I hope I don't have to go back for a while, of course, but if I do I wouldn't mind too much! Thank you Samaritan Endodontics!

When I first visited my dentist years and years ago, the first thing out of my mouth was "I don't want a root canal". I did not need one at the time and for many years after that but eventually my tooth started to become very sensitive to heat which is one of the signs that a root canal might be needed. My dentist referred me to Dr. Fathi. Dr. Fathi and her staff were very friendly and Dr. Fathi explained that the tooth in question was one of the first teeth we get and therefore the oldest. She explained the procedure and assured me that the tooth would be healthy even after the procedure which was one of my main concerns. I agreed to the procedure and honestly wondered, "Why is everyone afraid of doing this?" The procedure was painless and I honestly had very little discomfort after. Dr. Fathi's staff checked up on me a few days after. I highly recommend Dr. Fathi to anyone who needs a root canal! She and her staff are truly amazing! Thank you Dr. Fathi!

I really appreciated Dr. Fathi’s friendliness and the time she spent explaining everything to me. Her treatment recommendation did not include her at all. She made a referral that turned out not to work out, so I called her back and she not only gave me another referral, but she call and talked with the periodontist to make sure they had a complete understanding of my situation. I felt like she went the extra step to make sure I got the attention I needed.

To start off, I am a dentist but I am also in need of a root canal. So who else to go to but the very best. My visit with Dr. Fathi was both very professional as well as very personal. She performed a root canal on me that was even difficult for my wife (also a dentist) to do and my wife loves doing root canals. I also have to add that even though I am also a dentist, and I know what is going on, I was super super nervous because in the past, it has always been my wife doing my dental work for me. But Dr. Fathi was so compassionate, personal and professional, she immediately put me at ease and the root canal was done without a hitch. Thank you, Dr. Fathi. 🙂

I went to Dr. Fathi last summer for root canal on a cracked tooth. She and her team could not have been nicer. Clearly it comes from the top, Dr. Fathi must be one of the nicest people on the planet. You feel like you’re going to an old friend, not a dentist. But she and her team do a fantastic job. She is ultra sensitive about you feeling any pain, so this was as painless an experience as I’ve ever had for any dental work.Yesterday, I had the same issue, but compounded by the tooth having gotten infected. I walked into her office in incredible pain that I had been experiencing for three or four days. She treated me with amazing compassion and my experience was even better than previously. She was able to do my root canal immediately and I walked out of the office (still numb) but without pain for the first time in weeks. Today, my jaw is very slightly sore, but I feel great. All her staff so obviously care for how you're feeling and takiing care of you, as well as doing an outstanding job at doing painfree dentalk work.I heartily recommend going to Dr. Fathi for any endodontic needs. I felt so welcome there I was kind of sorry to leave when the work was done.

Wow! It really was pretty easy after all. :-)I was always fearful of the day I would need a root canal. After submitting my info on their website Dr Fathi reached out that night with a phone call and decided she needed to see me the next day. She did a great job with minimal discomfort that turned out to be on the same level as a normal cavity filling. Super friendly staff and state of the art equipment. BTW, a Dentist that was her former student recommended her when I asked for a "world class Endo" referral.

Dr. Fauti was willing to see me when I was in extreme pain with two teeth that had to have root canals. My regular dentist was unavailable and referred me to Dr. Fauti. She was kind and caring and explained everything she was going to do to ease my anxiety. I left her office with no pain and truly appreciated her kindness and professionalism. I highly recommend Dr. Fauti!

The experience was better than I could have imagined, I cannot thank her and her staff enough for being absolute angels.

I got referred to Samaritan Endodontics (Doctor Fathi) by my dentist after having really bad tooth ache and needing a root canal. I was nervous, from the minute I called speaking to the receptionist through to having the root canal I have never received such excellent service, they scheduled me right away and Dr Fathi called me the same day to find out what was happening. When I went in they were so kind and the root canal went very quickly. I highly recommend them.

Dr. Fathi and her staff are exceptional. Dr. Fathi's expertise, kindness and thoughtfulness comes thru at every interaction you might have at her practice (as well with how she interacts with her staff). After researching other options, she stood out as the best choice. Her team even makes the insurance process seamless and provides costs upfront without prompting. Consultation wise, Dr. Fathi is thorough in her evaluation process by performing holistic scans on your potentially compromised tooth. She is also very patient and non-judgmental about acknowledging that many people like myself have not always had the best dental experience/history. It was an ideal experience for reducing anxiety & building trust for first-timers like myself. I highly recommend her for top-notch root canal treatment. I hope I never have to get another root canal again, but if I do - I will without a doubt seek out Dr. Fathi's care!

I had an emergency situation over the weekend and Dr. Fathi was recommended to me. She went above and beyond to meet me on a weekend to access the situation and then quickly focused on making sure I was comfortable with meds/antibiotics. She scheduled the procedure for the next day. The procedure was seamless and she was amazing through the process sharing updates at every step and ensuring that I was comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Fathi and her staff!

What a staff! What a doctor! What an office! Who could make a root canal a pleasurable procedure? Dr Fathi and staff can! No words to describe the level of professionalism and care they give their patients. From booking my appointment to exiting after the procedure was completed every person I interacted with were personable and informative. This is the office and doctor you want to help you through a “dreaded “ procedure. It was “easy peasy” with Dr Fathi! This is your choice for endodontic surgery!

I was recommended by my regular dentist to see Dr. Fathi for a specialized root canal. Dr. Fathi was professional, knowledgeable, skillful and pleasant. The procedure was relatively painless. Afterwards, her office dealt with my insurance company, saving me a lot of time for paper work due to this office being out of my network. Her receptionist also made an appointment for me with my regular dentist to follow up. Dr. Fathi also called a day later to inquire how I felt. Overall, she has calmed my fear of the procedure. I was pleased to have gone there for treatment.

I received a list of recommendations of endodontics and I started researching from who was closest to my home. I read their website, clicked around, researched, and read through all the google reviews. I decided, okay this is the one that’ll give me a major root canal and do it well with care and kindness. I called and they were so transparent about everything which I really appreciated. I have great dental insurance but I would have to pay out of pocket after the procedure and then my insurance will reimburse me. I thought, nah they’re really good, let’s do this! They were so kind and accommodating especially after I arrived after a 12 hour shift as an RN at my hospital job. I politely asked and they were ok with my mom waiting in the waiting room for me! They chatted a lot during I appreciated because I was able to focus on the convo instead of what was going on or letting my anxious mind go insane. Dr. Fati mentioned the day of my procedure it was 3 dentists birthdays and she knows coz she not only works with them in the dental world but is friends with them! So after everything I asked of those friends who would you recommend to me to do my crown and as a new patient if general dentistry and she gave me a recommendation! The receptionist even called them for me and ask the recommendation to put me on a cancellation list too! I’m so grateful, the visit was such a pleasant experience! Dr. Fathi and her team as a whole are well worth it!!!! Also, the office was GORGEOUS and very clean!
Dr. Fathi performed a root canal procedure for me. She was kind, reassuring and demonstrated a high level of expertise!

This place was awesome. I usually have a ton of dental anxiety from experiences from childhood but they made sure I was comfortable and took care of me when I needed a root canal redone. I didn't feel a thing and was just listening to music on my ear buds the entire time without a care in the world.

If I find myself in need of another root canal, I am definitely returning to Dr. Fathi. Having undergone a root canal procedure elsewhere in the past, I can confidently say that the experience at Dr. Fathi's office was far superior. Dr. Fathi's attention to the sensitivity of my tooth at every stage of the procedure was exceptional. It instilled a deep sense of trust, making the entire process remarkably smooth and comfortable. I'm genuinely grateful for the outstanding care provided by Dr. Fathi and Jennifer.

Not only is the office state of the art, absolutely spotless, and very aware of COVID, but the entire staff is wonderful. Dr. Fathi is incredible, she is professional, warm, funny and does the best injections. I honestly did not feel anything. The entire experience, was truly like warmth and care from the time you walk in the door until the time you are done. I could not ask for more. Please, if you ever need a root canal look no further, Dr. Fathi, Meredith and Jennifer and are spectacular.

I was referred to Dr. Fathi for intense pain in a tooth that already had a root canal. She got me in quickly, diagnosed the problem as an infection in the area. She prescribed medication, and got me a prompt appointment, and flawlessly completed the complex work of drilling through the existing crown, finding a canal that was missed addressing the missed canal and re-filling the crown. Throughout the process, I was kept comfortable, without pain anywhere near what one would expect for that kind of procedure. Dr. Fathi is kind, warm, friendly, empathetic, professional, and extremely proficient. Her office and assistants were very nice, refreshing and efficient. She is one of the best Endodontists I have ever worked with. I have seen a number of them in the past. If you are in need of any related work, she is worth driving from wherever you need to experience time with her.

Dr. Fathi is incredible. This is the place you go to when other doctors have messed up and you just need it done right. With my most recent root canal, I barely felt anything when the painkiller was being injected, and after that I definitely did not feel anything. I don't think it's possible for the procedure to be any smoother and more painless.

Highest praise for Dr. Fathi and her staff! My initial consultation and 3D scan went smoothly. Her detailed explanation of the problem and how a root canal was the best solution made making the correct decision very easy. The root canal was painless and she let me know what was going on every step of the way. They followed up afterwards to make sure that my recovery was going as expected. Great care from beginning to end. I'll definitely be back for any endodontic care in the future.

Had an unexpected root canal several days ago done at Samaritan endodontics by Dr. Fathi.. From the front office to the chair side assistant to Dr. Fathi herself, I can think of no way services provided could have been improved.Thanks to alll

I felt that Dr. Fathi and her staff were most professional from the time of consultation (both by phone and in person) until the last stage of the process. The atmosphere in the office is warm and engaging, with Amanda at the front desk being cheerful and welcoming. Jennifer, Dr. Fathi's assistant, assisted in the procedures as they arose, and answered my questions, as well as showed me the before and after x-rays of my teeth when my treatment was completed. Dr. Fathi is warm and caring, while at the same time very professional in her explanations of each stage of the treatment, putting myself as the patient at ease with the entire experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Fathi as a skilled and competent endodontist, with an approachable style of communicating with her clients. Thank you again so very much!All the best wishes:)

I made the mistake of thinking I would save a few dollars (I am a cash pay client) by taking my daughter to Western Dental to receive treatment. Western Dental filled one of her molars and drilled so far into the tooth that she ended up having tooth pain. I took her to Campbell Smile for a proper treatment plan and was told that Western Dental drilled so far down that the nerve was affected and now needed a root canal on that tooth. Campbell Smile recommended Samaritan Endodontics with Dr. Fathi.We were so pleased with the level of hospitality and warmth we received from the entire staff at Samaritan Endodontics. After going through an awful experience, Dr. Fathi made my daughter feel at ease and treated her with kindness and compassion. I was also able to sit in while the root canal was performed and had a delightful conversation with Dr. Fathi. We laughed, we discussed current affairs, our children’s lives and education. When we left, my daughter asked if Dr. Fathi could be her primary provider. I told her “I wish!!”. Dental work can be very nerve-wracking and it’s so amazing to have providers like Dr. Fathi that takes the time to explain what’s happening and with care and compassion. Highly recommended!!!

By far one of the best dental specialist I have experienced. Dr. Fathi is knowledgeable, thorough and very upbeat and kind. She walks you through the process explaining what she is doing as well as making the process as comfortable as possible. Her staff is also very caring and supportive.

I was warmly greeted by Amanda who gave me a delightful drink 😉 before my procedure. Jennifer took x-rays of my tooth and Dr faithi diagnosed it as I would need a root canal. She explained in detail the procedure before any work was performed. This lady is remarkable, I felt no pain during the procedure. She was very comforting. She was highly recommended by my dentist and I couldn't have been happier. I actually gave her a quick hug on the way out. Who does this to an oral surgeon if they are not superb. I can't wait for my next root canal LOL🤔
Dr. Fathi is hands down the best, and I have had plenty of experience with endodontists. She explains what the issue is, guides you through the procedure, and has a deft hand. No pain!! Yes, that’s correct. Zero. And I need a LOT of local anesthetic. And she’s got a terrific, calming chair-side manner. I sent my family member (with NO dental experience beyond cleaning) for his first root canal and he liked her and trusted her completely for her superb endodontic expertise and caring personal treatment.

Nava Fathi is very knowledgeable when providing tooth care. She's a perfectionist and makes sure that the procedure is done correctly. I was referred to her by my dentist when he determined that I needed a root canal performed on one of my molars. I was most pleased at how professionally Dr. Fathi completed the work. Even my dentist is very favorably impressed. I highly recommend her.

I recently had my fourth root canal (in six years) from Dr. Fahti. She and her staff are friendly, welcoming, professional and do all they can to walk you through each step of the procedure and to make it was painless as possible. I certainly hope that I do not have to have another root canal, but as crazy as it is to say…I would look forward to and enjoy being with Dr. Fahti and her staff again.

I was referred by my dentist to Dr. Fathi for a root canal. I was initially greeted by Amanda the receptionist on the phone and found her to be welcoming, friendly and a joy to deal with. Dr. Fathi welcomed me upon my arrival with a greeting, a friendly smile and offered me a detailed breakdown of my financial options as I am retired and uninsured. Jennifer assisted her during my procedure and enhanced the feeling of concerned care. The process was explained step by step and was basically painless. I was impressed by the professional and courteous environment I experienced with Dr. Fathi and her team. I would highly recommend their services. A First Class operation!

I have been coming to Dr. Fahti's office for years! She is absolutely amazing both in her comfort care and her knowledge and experience! I wouldn't go to anyone else! I'm always treated like a family member and Dr. Fahti's team is above the norm in their professionalism and care! No one wants a root canal but no one does them better!

No one leaves a glowing review regarding a root canal procedure. You have never read one, but you can now.Dr Fathi and her staff were accommodating, gentle, friendly and ultra professional on my recent visit, taking the time and care to ensure I felt comfortable and informed through the entire process.Compared to any root canal of the past, its clear Dr Fathi (herself a dental educator) uses the most new and cutting-edge techniques and tools- it makes a huge difference! I noticed and commented the same: the Doctor explained to me, but my mind was on my tooth at the time! The result of modern convenience and technique is that the surgery was painless, over quickly and today a day later, I am on my way to healing with no infection pain or lingering pain.The office is spotless. Her staff is friendly and gentle, and ultimately professional and capable. I wish i had known of Dr Fathi and her staff for other procedures in the past. She is a delight, and will make you feel not just better, but very special as well.

The procedure, though extensive, was handled with care and efficiently. I had minimal residual pain in my jaw, which lasted through most of the night. On the following day, all discomfort is gone, and I can resume all my usual activities.

I recently had an appointment with Dr. Nava Fathi to get rid of an abscess, and I couldn’t be happier with my experience. Dr. Nava Fathi was very professional. She explained everything clearly and answered all my questions. I also appreciated as my request she reached out to my general dentist, who root-canaled another tooth by mistake. Finally, the abscess is completely gone. I highly recommend Dr. Nava Fathi to anyone in need of an endodontist.

Dr. Fathi is amazing! I came in with a great deal of pain and what I thought was an appointment to do a root canal. Unfortunately the appointment was just a diagnostic. The doctor took one look at me and worked me into her schedule so I wouldn't have to live with that pain over the long weekend. Her care and chair-side manor are both amazing, and I left feeling a million times better than I arrived. While I hope to never need this type of service again, if I do I will only want to see Dr. Fathi.

I was referred to Dr. Faathi a few weeks ago from my dentist after he discovered I had a bad infection from one of my front teeth. Dr. Faathi was able to see me right away, diagnosed the issue, and proposed the various options I had to treat it.Given I had vacation plans the following week, she was able to perform the procedure a few days after diagnosing the problem, cleaning out the infection and saving the tooth. She expertly performed the procedure like any well skilled competent surgeon, efficiently and effectively. I couldn't have been in better hands. I left her office very impressed with how well I was treated, the courtesy of Dr. Faathi & her staff and their attention to patient care.

Best experience and care that we could have hoped for for our daughter. Dental procedures are never easy, especially for young children, and the sensitivity, communication and overall treatment was professional and empathetic.
