I have been to Dr. Priya O'Callaghan near Alta Bates. She is excellent and was recommended by my dentist Arlene Terlet.

really great place and awesome people.

Endodontist (sp?) Priya O'Callaghan, next to Alta Bates, is the most skilled dentist I have ever encountered at doing root canals.   She's done three or four for me.

Quick, painless, technically perfect.


I highly recommend Silvia Cecchini who is at Berkeley Endodontics at 2850 Telegraph (near Ashby) in Berkeley. She is very thorough, gentle and explains the procedures well. Good luck with the root canal!

My Endo specialist Dr.  Ataushi  Fujimura is excellant! He is very attentive and gentle and through.  I have had amazing support from Dr. Fujimura as I have had several very difficult projects for him as I needed many procedures and clean up of failed previous root canals. Great Staff and Dr. Fujimura is also very compassionate and really listens to his patients!  Can't say enough good things about his work and thoughtfulness.

Here is a link to his web page  I have used the practice next to the El Cerrito Plaza Area on

Fremont Smiles on Mowry is a family owned dentist office and is wonderful. Second generation is running it now, first generation elected to the Washington Hospital board. 

Caveat: I've never had a root canal, but I recommend Dr. Devigal. My father has terrible teeth, and he has been super happy with the care he's received from Dr. Devigal. I've been going to his practice since I was a child, and he's wonderful and very thorough.
