I had a toothache and needed immediate help. My general dentist told me that I needed a root canal. I decided it would be best for me to see a specialist. I checked the web and saw the glowing reviews for Dr. Desir and Dr. St. Paul. I drove from Atlanta to be seen by Dr. Desir. Unfortunately, I found (before I got on the road) that this office is not in my dental network. The cost was more than I would have paid if I had gone to a network endodontist. Nonetheless, I had Dr. Desir do the root canal anyway because of my need for immediate attention, and also because the reviews were so good. I thought, "If these reviews are real, it's worth the drive and extra money." Well, I'm happy to report it was definitely worth the drive and extra money. And, actually, without my asking, they submitted a request for reimbursement to my insurance company. I remember either Brittany or Christen saying, "You may not get anything back. But we may be able to get you back $155.00. It's worth a try." Guess what? I got the $155.00! That's service. Of course, no one wants a root canal. It has a reputation of being a very painful procedure. However, I noticed in review after review that former patients reported that they were surprised that the procedure wasn't painful. That's the kind of surprise I was looking for. Again, I'm happy to report that the reviews were real. This is what I experienced, too. Complete honesty: There were two momentary times that I felt super sensitivity as Dr. Desir worked on my tooth. But he is VERY keen to not causing pain. So he noticed a little flinch, asked me about it, and administered more medicine to make sure I felt no pain. All the while, Senoria or Nikki was there patting me on the arm and squeezing my shoulder to assure me. Ha, ha, ha. You'd be surprised how powerful a strategic touch is when you're tense. (Thank you, ladies!!!) All in all, it was as positive an experience a root canal can be. I do need another one in the near future. I will happily make the drive to go back to Dr. Desir and this remarkable staff of wonderful and sensitive professionals.

I was very nervous coming in and at One point right before the procedure started I started to panic a little and the nurse and Doctor was very patient with me and calmed me down once I was calm it was a breeze and I felt zero pain. I would definitely use them again.

Dr. Alison St. Paul was awesome. She made me feel very comfortable and let me know everything she was doing and about to do. I had a great experience and would highly recommend her if you are in need of a root canal. My dentist can't stop talking about her level of work and how great of a job she did on my root canal. Thanks Dr. St. Paul! I am hoping that I will never need another one; however, you would definitely be my Dr. of choice. Thanks again!

My experience at MEC was exceptional. Everything was explained before it was performed, I was made aware of my financial responsibility beforehand, the doctor was extremely professional, even the atmosphere was welcoming and put me at ease. Dr. St. Paul, her assistant, and her staff took great care of me. I highly recommend MEC for anyone's endodontic needs.

Thankfully I was able to get an appointment with Dr. St. Paul earlier than another referred endodontist. I walked in very nervous and scared and expecting to be in pain and misery and walked out happy and pain free. I had zero wait time even though I was a little early. The entire staff were kind and caring. Many thanks to Dr.St.Paul and to all of the staff there for a very pleasant experience.

As soon as I walked in the door I was greeted by a staff that was helpful and very professional. The procedure was explained to me in detail by Dr. Rolin Desir before he started. After he had completed the root canal on me by the way it was totally painless, I could give him a call if I have a problem. Thank You

“I have been to several Endodontists through the years. My experience with Dr Desir and staff was one of caring and dedication. If ever I need an Endodontist in the future it will be Dr Desir and his team.”– Milt

“My dentist sent me to Dr. Desir because my root was calcified. From the time I walked into the office to the time I left (about 2 hours) the team could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Dr. Desir was so pleasant and sincere, and obviously very talented to get through my hard tooth. A root canal is never easy but Dr. Desir and his team made my experience the best it could be. Thank you.”-Elizabeth

With 2 root canals done I can say this office was by far the best choice. I was well taken care of and they also called to check on me the next day. Very pleased with the service I received. I would recommend them with high prasie.-Penny Hall

I travelled from Douglasville GA to this dentist. I trust them completely in whatever they tell me needs to be done. I dont feel like its about the money but all about the health of my teeth. Love the staff also.-Laura Ferris

I have not had a root canal in 30 years…and I had bad memories from the first one….so I was kind of dreading it….and requesting gas or stronger meds. But Dr. Desir promised I wouldn’t feel a thing. I have to admit….it was not that bad. It was actually a very good experience. I was shocked that I didn’t need pain medicine and wasn’t even sore the next day. So I give Dr. Desir an A+. I will definitely recommend him to my friends. Thank you for taking what could have been a very bad memory and making it easy and pretty much….pain free!! Who else can say that about a root canal?-Lori

I would rather have Dr. Desir do a root canal than a dentist fill a cavity. That’s how good he is!!!-Jen

I was really afraid. However, Dr. Desir and his staff were excellent! He did not hurt me. He gave me his number in case I had any problems. I called the number that evening to see if a service would answer. He answered! I was shocked and very happy. I did not have any problems, but was glad to know he and his office were available. He is a very skillful doctor. You are in good hands with Dr. Desir!-J Mitchell

“I went to Dr Desir in extreme pain, the staff was very considerate and compassionate. They took great care in getting me as comfortable as possible and quickly diagnosed the problem, root canal infection. Everything was explained as they went along as well as what to expect in the coming days. I am pain free now and really appreciate Dr Desir and the entire staff. Thank you”-Julie Depue

My entire experience at McDonough Endodontic Center was wonderful. The staff was great and Dr. Desire was awesome!! This was my first root canal and I was a nervous wreck but Dr. Desire and his staff helped me through it and were wonderful!-Aimee

He does excellent work! No pain very friendly and I was smiling when I left his office. That was a very pleasant experience! I felt as if I had visited a good friend. Thank you Dr Desir and staff.-Robert

I was referred to Dr. Desir in November 2014 and again in October 2015 by my primary Dentist. Dr. Desir has performed three root canals for me. The time I went to him in October was really an emergency visit and Brittany worked me in his schedule. He does an outstanding JOB! I will refer any one to his office. He has the best staff EVER! Dr. Desir you and your staff are truly gifted and I am blessed to have you do my root canals. The word in it self scare most people, but I will tell anyone not to be afraid if they come to you. A job well done!
Thank you, Thank you!-Phyllis
