It is that most wonderful time of the year. Don't think because we are all in the holiday cheer that the bad guys are taking any time off. I think they feel this is the best time to try to scam us. So don't fall for anything.
Luckily, I have never had a root canal but after reading about this I will think twice before going to a dentist. I understand that people cut corners to save money, but when you are a licensed dentist, people trust you with their mouths. It is unthinkable that a dentist would use paper clips to fix your teeth.
