Thank You for choosing Lacewood Endodontics!


We feel privileged that you have chosen our office for your root canal treatment. Despite what you may have heard, modern root canal treatment is no more uncomfortable than a crown or extensive filling. Every attempt is made to make your visit almost painless.

Our office is located at 287 Lacewood Drive, Suite 203B in Halifax on the corner of Lacewood Dr. and Dunbrack St. in the Park West Centre. There is plenty of free parking available directly in front of our office. For more information on our office location, and for detailed map previews, please visit our Office Location & Contact Information page.

Please try to be prompt for your scheduled appointment. Most visits take under two hours so please don't schedule any other appointments sooner than three hours after your scheduled time. If you are forced to reschedule your appointment, please call us at least 24 hours in advance at 902-457-5646.

If needed, please bring your glasses since you will need them to read and fill out some forms at your first visit. It is also important to bring to your first appointment a list of all prescription medications you are currently taking, including any vitamins, supplements and herbals.

Please call the office immediately if your physician informed you that you need antibiotic premedication before receiving any dental care. Also, be sure not to skip breakfast if you have a morning appointment and eat a normal lunch if your appointment is in the afternoon.

Be sure to bring any dental insurance information, X-Rays or notes from your dentist, as this information will be helpful. Our office uses the latest state-of-the-art high-tech equipment to facilitate your treatment. Our practice is focused exclusively on root canal treatment, which results in a higher long-term success rate and a shorter, more comfortable treatment appointment. Since we limit our practice to the specialty of Endodontics, your general dentist will provide the necessary filling or crown shortly after the root canal is completed.

Since treatment is often performed in a single visit, payment in full by cash, check, Master Card or Visa is expected at the completion of treatment. We are looking forward to the opportunity to help you keep your teeth for a lifetime. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions.
