Dr Forbes looking at dental x-ray

Many of you participate in a Flexible Spending Account or Health Saving Plans with your employer. In most cases, any benefits left on these accounts do not roll over to the next calendar year and you lose those benefits as well.


Your coverage provides you with a certain deductible and dollar amount of benefits for each year. If you do not use those benefits you lose them!  Many people do not realize this and let hundreds of dollars go back to the insurance carriers.  Maximizing your remaining benefits for your needed Root Canal Therapy this year will allow you to have the entire amount of benefits available for the next year to get your needed treatment done by your general dentist.

Here's what members of our community are saying about Forbes Endodontics...

Jan 27, 2017,

I am sure there are many people like myself, the words root canal makes you nervous.
I had a root canal 25yrs ago and still have that tooth? 5yrs ago I needed another, I chose Dr. Forbes for the location.
After the experience I had, I would drive any distance. One year ago an x-ray showed a problem with that tooth. Dr Forbes took a 3-D-xray. Saw the problem. He had to remove the tooth, take the bottom of the root off? And replace it, now I was really nervous
I didn't want to loose the tooth so I had to give it a try. It was so pain free that I didn't know he had the tooth out.
I heard him working on the tooth a few feet away. He replaced the tooth asked me to bite down for a few minutes.
I was not to chew in it for ? 3 weeks, then take it easy. 1 year later my x-rays show all is well.

I want to keep my teeth as long as I can, why this happened I don't know but I am happy with the results.
When you walk in, everyone is so friendly you feel relaxed and glad you are there.

In this hustle and bustle world most of us do not take a few minutes to extend our appreciation for a job well done, which exceeded our expectations of a "No PAIN INVOLVED" root canal. Dr. Forbes 3D imagery pin pointed the abscessed tooth immediately and Dr. Forbes performed the root canal. Dr. Forbes goes a step further of including zinc oxide in his cement to insure a tight seal of which bacteria will not enter the root canal area of extraction.

Dr. Forbes and his staff sat knee to knee with the patient to answer all questions. The staff is definately the wind beneath his wings as their professionalism was unsurpassed by any other facility we have previously visited. Linda the office manager was exceptional in every way to help with paperwork and insurance needs and answer all of our questions. The staff and this exceptional Endodontist should be mentioned in the FORBES MAGAZINE. I will refer every patient I meet as well as every Dentist in the area to this wonderful facility. Thank you.


All the staff at Forbes Endodontics are kind, courteous, & bubbly. Dr. Forbes service was excellent and does a great job! The outcome was much better than the pain I experienced before the treatment. I would recommend Dr. Forbes to everyone in need of a Root Canal.

Great man, and dentist and the crew he has working for him are so pleasant. It made going to dentist a nice and comfortable experience recommend to all. The hallmark of endodontics when you care for the very best.

Here is some great news!

If you need an Endodontist with gentle hands and a pain free experience, Dr. Forbes is your choice. My root canal was a great experience with no pain, what so ever. It was done in two stages with great success. You will only bless Dr. Forbes and his team for a job well done.

God bless him.
