Patient Testimonials

“ On vacation, my 7 year old had run into a mirror and broke her permanent front tooth in half. Dr. Pla’s office was able to get her in 2 days after we got home. The staff was excellent and treated my daughter so kindly. They were caring and efficient, and the office had a great atmosphere – modern, clean and relaxing. Dr. Pla had an excellent bedside manner – friendly and funny, and made my little girl feel comfortable and unafraid. After the friendly dental assistant took X-rays, Dr. Pla tested the tooth for vitality and determined that root canal treatment would not be necessary at this time. We have made subsequent appointments for continued monitoring of the tooth. I am so thankful that my daughter had such a positive experience for her first time seeing an endodontist. ”

“ I badly needed a root canal that I’d put off for over a year, with a recent big increase in pain.  Dr. Pla’s office was very good about getting me in for an evaluation right away.  Dr. Pla did something to give me temporary relief and bring the irritation down and I was quickly scheduled for the root canal.  The root canal was made more difficult because of the amount of damage due to my delay in treatment.  She was very careful to ensure that I was not in pain and that I understood the procedure before during and after the work was done.  Before the root canal she had coordinated with my Dentist to ensure what type of filing they wanted her do and prepare for the follow up crown.  She called me to see how I was doing the next day.  I was feeling much better and have had no problem with that tooth since. Excellent staff, provider and follow up! ”

“ I called the office in excruciating pain. The gal that answered the phone was the most pleasant helpful and wonderful to talk to. She immediately triage the call to elevate my pain and got me in the following day because her knowledge told her that I needed a longer appointment in order to get the relief on Friday. So I wasn’t left on the weekend crying. I had already been started on antibiotics so it was perfect. Every single technician was so pleasant. Even in between times when the doctor was away the technicians came in to see how I was doing do I need water anything I need. This office could teach so many other places how to treat patients/customers. I can’t say enough the Dr. Pla seems like the most humble person. She really cares about her patients. Her staff represents her, and it shows they are happy along with her. Like I told her I am her biggest cheerleader. I have worked in the professional medical field for years never seen anything like this. I was at both the Tacoma and Puyallup office. It was amazing the consistency between the two offices exactly the same. Love you guys! Thank you, thank you again! ”

“ I was referred to Dr. Pla for an emergency root canal procedure, after developing a serious infection. From the moment I stepped into her practice, I was treated professionally and courteously by her staff. After an initial examination, and several inquiries as to my pain/comfort level, I was apprised me of the steps necessary to treat my root canal, the costs I could expect and what my Dental Insurance would cover etc. Dr. Pla saw me and recommended/started treatment immediately. She exhibited a calm and competent demeanor as she treated me. Dr. Pla was constantly mindful of my comfort and the level of pain I may be experiencing so that she could minimize it. To say I was impressed with Dr. Pla and her staff would be an understatement. I rarely encounter professionals in any field that possess the balance of technical competency, social grace and genuine compassion that Dr. Pla embodies. I highly recommend Dr. Pla, regardless of distance! ”
