Had to have a last minute root canal done, they were great about fitting me in to relieve the pain. Jill and the rest of the staff made it an easy and painless procedure. I would recommend South Hill Dental.

I had a tooth emergency and they were able to fit me in the same day I called and I wasn't even a patient. There was hardly a wait time and I was out of there in enough time to make it to work. The staff was friendly and professional.
