Other Success Stories

We would love to hear from you

Excellent experience. Had about as painless of a root canal as one could hope for. Mine was a very complex procedure. Fortunately it worked out very well. Everything was explained to me in detail up front. No surprises. I highly recommend you consider Dominion Endodontics.

I want to thank Dominion Endodontics from the bottom of my heart. My tooth hurt so bad that I was about to reenact the scene in Castaway with Tom Hanks and the ice skates. Thankfully they were there to help me and save my tooth. Pain is all gone now and I am so happy. You guys are great! Friendly and informative staff and a very high tech and fancy office.

I took my son to Dr. David Palmieri,about 13 years ago for a root canal, so when it was my turn, there was no question that I would use him as my doctor. He is the BEST, he was patience and kind throughout the entire process and even calling later to see how I was doing. The office staff was amazing and educated me in everything I needed to do before and after the surgery. The best dental experiences I have every had.

No one WANTS to have a root canal, but if you have to... this is the place to go! Dr. Palmieri was great and his support staff are very caring and thorough. His assistant communicated throughout the procedure to keep my mind at ease. The support staff was friendly and executed their roles exceptionally.
Chris Hardisty
Most impressive practice from very first contact. Dr Palmieri always displayed the highest professionalism, while at same time demonstrating the utmost concern for my comfort and well being. He even called me at home the evening of my treatment to check on my comfort level. The office staff and support personnel at both the Alexandria and Falls Church Offices were courteous and pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend this practice.
Jim Burnette
My consultation with Dr. Palmieri was informative and very helpful. If I do need a root canal I will definitely return to Dominion. Everyone in the office was helpful, courteous, informative and helpful.
Patricia Hesse
Highly recommend Dr. Palmieri if you need an endodentist. I've had more root canals than I'd like to remember (two!) and he's fantastic. He's professional, informative and he gets the job done quickly and efficiently. I've been to both the Arlington and the Alexandria offices and the customer service, front desk and overall feel of the offices are highly professional and welcoming.

The dentist makes me anxious, the sounds, smells, everything. But when I came to Dominion for my root canal all my anxieties went away. Dr. Portell did an amazing job making sure I was numb and comfortable through the entire appointment. The front desk was kind, helpful, and so accommodating. I would definitely drive through Old Town Alexandria to come back here! I am very pleased and impressed.
Holly D.
Let's face it - a trip to the dentist for a first ever root canal is not a fun thing to do. That being said, the office staff at Dominion was helpful with the paperwork, knowledgeable and obviously well organized. Once I was called back Dr. Palmieri clearly explained what was going to happen, assured me I was not going to die in agony in his chair, then proceeded to perform the root canal. Afterwards he used a model to explain what was done. He also took the time to call that evening to make sure I was not having any difficulties. He was right, the experience was not as bad as I anticipated. I do not want to do it again. But if I have to have another root canal in the future Dominion is where I will go.
Tom Henderson
The receptionists were so pleasant. My hygienist was patient and attentive. Dr. Palmeri was excellent; he explained everything thoroughly and my root canal was painless and issue free. I highly recommend Dominion Endodontics.
E. Nichole Patterson
Great experience from the front desk til checkout. Dr. Extremely skillful. Procedure painless. Dr. And his assistant worked together so smoothly. All staff and Dr Palmieri we're kind and considerate.
Sarah Beth Hatchell
Dr. Palmieri is a terrific endodontist. He is knowledgeable, patient, and one of the best in the field. You know you are in good hands when you are in his care, and he does everything possible to make sure that his procedures are done right. He even follows up with a personal call to his patients to make sure everything is ok. Let's face it - no one likes difficult dental work, but Dr. Palmieri is the best there is and I would not go to anyone else.

Doctor Schoenly was very informative and clear. He has a great bedside (chairside?) manner.
