While visiting La Jolla for a month, I developed a painful condition caused by tooth problems. I called Dr. D'Angelo's office and told my sad tale. Much to my relief (in more ways than one) Dr. D'A agreed to see me the next morning. It turned out to be more arduous than expected and resulted in a very difficult filling and root canal. While balancing his other patients from my unexpected long procedure (2 1/2 hours), Dr. D'A took great care of me, never got ruffled by the pressure he was under for his other patients, kept his fine sense of humor, and did a great job. I couldn't recommend him more.
