I have been to Dr. Cardon twice. Very good , pain free root canal. The second time I went in for a consult, he picked up that I needed a different antibiotic, than the one I was on. He is a very caring, thorough Doctor.

Amazing people working on teeth here. They are happy and really care about what they are doing. I get extremely anxious and was able to use the laughing gas to calm my nerves during the procedure. It made everything better. They were fast and thorough. Will definitely come back for any work needed. Thanks Maple Ridge!!!

I had a great experience here! Staff was extremely aware of discomfort I was feeling during the procedure and made sure to stop and offer remedies. Fastest and pain free operation I’ve been through! I would highly recommend Maple Ridge Endodontics

I have been putting off for a couple of years due to dental nightmares when I was younger. Maple ridge staff was absolutely incredible! Fast , kind and understanding! I thought I would be in a lot of pain when the numbing wore off but no pain at all! I never dreamed getting a root canal would be so easy!
