“I was seen by Dr. Wood after having a complication caused by a dentist in Dallas, Texas.
Initially, I was struck with the comfort of the waiting room and the professionalism and caring of his staff. With virtually no wait time, I was seen by Dr. Wood who explained fully the procedure and proceeded to perform the process painlessly, with technical precision and advising me of each step.
He is a remarkable endodontist, with a patient-centric approach. (One marvels that this gentle giant of a man can do such intricate procedures. I was told by my colleagues that he is perhaps the best in the South/Southwest.) At a time when medicine and dentistry seem to be depersonalized, he and his office and staff are clearly an exception. It is worth the drive from Dallas to be the recipient of such outstanding care.”

“Thank you so much for the tender-loving-care I received during a painful tooth time (two abscessed teeth). I called multiple times and the staff was always courteous , Kelli’s peppiness really calmed me down. Dr. Wood’s attentiveness to my questions put me at ease. Thank you! Keep up the great care.”
“I’ve been wanting to stop and thank you for many months. You’ve done my first root canal, the removal of a cyst from that site, and helped me avoid my second root canal. It was as painless and professional as can be, from the moment I stepped into your office until I left. But that’s not why I’m thanking you. I’m thanking you for being kind and fun. I’m thanking you for being generous/merciful. I’m thanking you for literally giving me faith in humanity during days when I thought I was beat! Thank you for being you.”
“There are a few phrases in the English language that are known to cause fear and panic in many people. Consider these phrases: tornado warning, flash flood advisory, account overdrawn, emergency appendectomy, root canal. When I learned I needed a root canal, I was overwhelmed, intimidated, and terrified! When I walked into your office and was greeted by your delightful receptionist, the rapid breathing and pulse decreased. When I met you, the man who would be putting needles and drills in my mouth, I was “almost” relaxed. There was no lab coat and no degrees posted on the walls, instead, there were casual T-shirts and pictures of puppies! As you talked me through the procedure, you mixed in tales of your life, asked about my life and, before I knew it, I was up and out the door. Since that time, I have returned for a consultation and two more root canals without fear or dread. In short, Dr. Wood, I think you are awesome! I hope you know that I have shared my experience with many friends and can only hope that they take my advice and call for an appointment!”
Very truly yours, Sheryl R. Bair, PhD
“Dr. Paul Wood and his staff have always cared about my treatment at his office. If I ever was in need of an appointment, I never had a problem getting scheduled. Dr. Wood is a kind person and takes very good care of his patients as well as his staff. I have been a patient for many years and plan to continue to be his patient if I am ever in need of his professional skills.”
“Paul, speaking with you this morning made me revisit how much I appreciate who you are, what you do, and especially your intellectual curiosity. You are the ideal example of the professional mind which never stops seeing more etiologic arrows in our quiver as professionals as opposed to just treating one symptom of a huge disorder at a time. Just how many endodontists in today’s world would question the etiology of a problem that might seem limited to an ongoing destruction of an upper central incisor and its mate beyond just doing endo on the lesion presenting on the radiograph? This is why I loved you when we first met and continue to do so.”
Tom Colquitt, DDS
“In 1978, a wonderful blessing came into my dental practice, Dr. Paul Wood. During our first encounter, he committed to taking over the endodontic needs that I had. For the following 37 years, I enjoyed very high quality treatment for my patients and their return to my practice as pleased patients. All of these benefits not withstanding, the greatest blessing is the existence and pleasure of a lasting friendship.”
Perry W. Hollembeak, DDS
“I cannot speak more highly about the treatment and service I received at Dr. Wood’s clinic. He and his staff are extremely professional and caring. Never thought I would say having a root canal was a delightful experience — but it actually was!!!!!!! That will definitely be my go-to place for all future dental procedures.”
