"Being my first root canal, I wasn’t sure what to expect but everyone was super knowledgeable to explain the process and answer any questions. Dr Erben was gentle, constantly checking that I was comfortable the entire time. The whole staff in general was very friendly and the office was clean and welcoming."

Austin J.

"I get nervous when getting any dental work done but Dr. Erben & staff were amazing. They made me feel comfortable and at ease. They explained each step of the procedure to me. During the procedure Dr. Erben & assistant were checking on me and making sure I was comfortable throughout. I had ZERO pain!

The front office staff were really friendly and knowledgeable. "

Jenia D.

"My recent experience at Spindrift Endodontics was far more pleasant than I would ever have expected a visit to an endodontist's office to be! Dr. Erben and his staff are outstanding, and they offered such thoughtful and friendly care throughout my interactions with them. From my first phone call with the treatment coordinator, Lynn, I knew I would be in good hands with this practice. I appreciated the ability to fill out my patient forms online ahead of time, and then receive a follow-up email with some useful and important post-treatment information. On the day of my appointment, I was pleased to find the waiting and treatment rooms to have a very soothing vibe (big deal if you know you are about to get drilled on!) with calming paint colors, cozy blankets and artwork, a coffee machine, and free WiFi. I chatted with several of the assistants - all were pleasant and professional. Dr. Erben went above and beyond to explain to me exactly what to expect with each step he took during my visit, which also helped me feel more comfortable. It is obvious that he is both an extremely knowledgeable and compassionate doctor.

Having tooth pain is frustrating and debilitating. It is so important to feel confident in your endodontist. I sincerely appreciate the care that Dr. Erben and his staff showed me!"

Amanda B.

"I battle with severe anxiety, depression, as well as PTSD. I was extremely fearful to have a root canal performed as I was told horror stories from people throughout my life.

Dr. Erben and his staff at Spindrift Endo were so patient with me as I battled through my anxiety. They accommodated me to the fullest extent, making me feel safe, secure and comfortable the entire time I was in their office.

I’ve had many experiences with Doctors of all sorts but never have I found that an entire staff could work together so well. From the front desk staff, the dental assistants, all the way to Dr. Erben, everyone worked with a friendly smile and treated me like a part of the work family.

Hopefully I never have to get another root canal, but if I do nowhere else will do for me.

Thanks again guys you are all amazing and are appreciated more than you all know!"


"I was recently treated at Dr. Erben's office for a root canal. I had such a good experience during my visit, beginning with meeting his office manager as well as his dental assistants. He explained what needed to be done and how important it is to keep my natural teeth.  I had no pain during the procedure and was able to go back to work. I highly recommend Dr. Erben without reservation."

Sedation dentistry is used to provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for certain people receiving dental treatment. It enables individuals too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding the common apprehension known as dental phobia.
