  • Dear Dr. Tismensky,
    I want to express my appreciation for your professional and competent service. I was worked in on very short notice and provided prompt diagnosis and treatment. The office left me confident that I had received excellent care. This was my first root canal and I know my tooth will serve me for years to come.
    Thank You

  • Dr. Damas was amazing. I was in a great deal of pain when I went to her Joliet office. The receptionist at the front desk got me in right away and called my insurance for me. Dr. Damas was very caring and very concerned about me. She had the root canal done completed in one hour and called me at home that evening to see how I was doing. They took my insurance so I only had to pay the 20% when I went in. I was very impressed with that office and would definitely go there again.
