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.

What is a root canal?

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

July 2023 at the age of 64, I experienced my first root canal procedure. My dentist recommended I visit Dr. Garland Forbes. I entered his office with pain in a back molar tooth and left pain free. Dr. Forbes and his team work like a well oiled engine. From beginning to end I sat in the chair for 90 minutes. For two weeks later I experienced no pain or discomfort until I had a permanent crown installed. I highly recommend Dr. Forbes for his years of knowledge and experience.

I was completely satisfied with the service I received at Dr. Forbes office. I found Dr. Forbes to be professional, kind, understanding, thoughtful and gentle.  Before the procedure I received 2 injections which i barely felt , he was so gentle. During the procedure he checked on me numerous times to make sure I was fine and pain free. 

Thank you all for making a difficult procedure more tolerating, all your kindness will always be remembered. I would suggest your office to any one who needed a procedure of root canal. I consider myself lucky to ever met all of you.

Thank you,

Margaret G

I commend Dr. Forbes for his great work in saving a lower back tooth from extraction. Initially the tooth was sensitive and painful and a root canal was performed on that tooth about three years go by my regular dentist. He recommended that I visit Dr. Forbes. After checkin the tooth and X-rays, Dr. Forbes advised that a deeper root canal would be necessary to correct my problem. I was apprehensive about having this done a second time but all was successful thanks to a caring Dr. Forbes and his staff. I highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Forbes.
