My normal dentist wasn't listening.....I didn't want a root canal and crown. I personally just wanted the extraction, be out of pain, in 6 months -1 year, when I can afford it, I want an implant. Dr. Simpson got it. No high-pressure sales pitch. I'll be back to get the implant done 100%. My new family dentist is Dr. Simpson!!!
