Referred by my dentist to see an endondontist, either Dr. Jeffrey Hom or Dr. Meredith Overstreet for my excruciating toothache. I visited South Austin Microendodontics first. I called this office at 8am sharp on 7/11. The office staff, Daniel immediately told me to come at 4p, the same day for a consult with Dr. Hom. Before I went, my husband warned me that I should accept treatment even if it costs thousands of dollars. Knowing how much pain I experienced during the weekend, I know he was thinking about potential root canal. I was on the dental chair at 3:50pm. Dr. Hom started examining my teeth at 4pm. He thoroughly tested all the scenarios, not only one time, but two to three times in order to eliminate any premature, unnecessary treatments. He patiently explained each test to me. Eventually, he narrowed down to one possibility—I reinjured my cracked tooth with a crown. Without hesitation, he readjusted my crown. Wow, immediately my pain, the pain made me sob every time I chew on anything or drinking cold or hot liquid for 5 days was miraculously disappeared!!! what a relief! The cost of my copay for this visit was 0–zero! I cannot find enough vocabulary to express my deep appreciation and admiration for Dr. Hom’s expertise, thoroughness, kindness, honesty, compassion, professionalism, etc. And best of all, he helped a retiree to save thousand dollars that he could easily make from! Remember, I was mentally prepared for a root canal! I am more than satisfied with the service both Dr. Hom’s and his staff members have provided. I would recommend his office to any one who needs this type of service without any hesitation!
