Excellent experience. Not only was Dr. Montoya seemingly the only endodontist working in the state of New Mexico between Christmas and New Years (when I was traveling there and needed an emergency root canal), but she was also careful and thorough. When I got back home, my dentist commented on what a great job she did, which was clear from the x-ray images. At first I was surprised by how much imaging Dr. Montoya wanted to do (full CT scan beforehand, x-ray during the procedure, and x-ray after), but my dentist confirmed that this is exactly the right approach for making sure the root canal is successful.

Just as others have reported, the follow-up from this practice is impressive. Dr. Montoya called me later that evening to check in on me, to make sure everything was going OK, and to answer any other questions of mine. Her staff are also excellent and quickly addressed some concerns I had a few days later. They made sure to provide both my dentist and me with all records and images from the visit.

On April 30, 2015 at 10:10 AM I had a root canal. The procedure was performed by Dr. David Baker. Previous to this, at a consultation with Dr. Baker, he thoroughly explained my choices, took more x-rays to define what happened to my tooth and why a root canal was a good plan of action, and thoughtfully answered my questions. Within a week, I was scheduled for the procedure. Though I was apprehensive the morning of the procedure, Dr. Baker clearly explained what he was going to do. Through clear, informed communication, he guided my understanding during the one hour procedure. My response when the root canal was completed was, “Honestly, that was no big deal.” And it wasn’t. Much like getting a filling in a tooth. Dr. Baker let me know that I would feel some soreness the first few days. Though I took one dosage of Advil when I went home, there was no need to take more. I felt perfectly fine the evening after the procedure. Dr. Baker called me personally at my home that evening to find out how I was feeling. It’s been almost three weeks and so far, my tooth is much less sensitive and the procedure appears to be a success.

At a time when medical care can be very impersonal and insensitive, I rate Dr. David Baker the highest rating of 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. This is the kind of medical support I feel very comfortable referring to others. I hope I don’t need any more root canals, but if I do, I hope Dr. Baker is available. He’s fantastic!

Dear Dr. Baker,

Thank you for your excellent service regarding my root canal. From the initial evaluation/consultation with you until the completion of the procedure and the follow up phone call from you, my experience and treatment could not have been better. Upon arrival at your office, I was rather nervous, since I had never had a root canal before, but you and your staff significantly reduced my level of stress by talking with me and promptly starting the work. After the root canal, I experienced no pain and no swelling.

As you know, my general dentist recommended you and contacted you for my first appointment. And, I am delighted that he did. On Monday when he does my crown work, I will report my experience with your office to him. I certainly will recommend you to my friends and neighbors should they need the services of an endodontist.


Dr. Baker,

A note of thanks. My visit last Friday was my first root canal. After hearing I was going to need a root canal, I felt a bit of anxiety because of all the dreadful tales I had heard in the past. Instead the procedure was easy and painless. In fact, at times I struggled to stay awake. The staff was great and helpful in getting me signed up with CareCredit. If I ever hear of a family member, co-worker, or friend needing a root canal, I will tell them about my experience with your office.

Dear Dr. Baker,

I’d like to express my deepest appreciation to you for allowing me to come in and be seen on such short notice yesterday. I had a terrible toothache that needed attention before I could travel outside the country next week, and you graciously made room for me in your busy schedule. It’s an act of generosity and kindness that I will never forget.

After you repaired my aching tooth I was able to take my wife out for a birthday dinner and movie last night, and I returned to work today. I’m eating normally and remain pain free. I’m also confident that I can travel safely.

I’d also like to thank your office staff for the expert attention to my dilemma…

Dr. Baker,

Thank you so much for making a ROOT CANAL painless. I truly appreciate you and all the staff for being so kind and caring. I felt at ease right away. The procedure went so quick. Then to get a phone call in the evening checking on me is unheard of in this day and age. Finally a letter thanking me for choosing your practice and wishing me well!! Oh my goodness what wonderful care. I would highly recommend you to all. You are a true genius.

Thank you,
Dr. Baker and Staff

I want to thank you for your professionalism and skill on Friday.
I came to my appointment with much trepidation, and was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. You are very gently and soft spoken Dr. Baker, and I appreciated that very much.

I would highly recommend your office to anyone that asked me. Thank you again.

Dr. Baker,

Thank you for doing such a wonderful job on my root canal. Aside from when the anesthetic wore off, I had no pain, no swelling, no discomfort. I am able to chew without sensitive sensation. I’d recommend you to anyone who needs an excellent endodontic specialist. You’re a tribute to dentistry.
