    I was referred to Dr. Rick for a root canal and implant which Dr. Rick completed in a completely painless and professional manner informing me step-by-step along the way as he performed the required work. Compared to a previous root canal performed by another specialist, Dr. Rick's work was far superior. There was no pain or discomfort before, during or after the root canal. The implant was completed in a like manner with follow-up visits over a four month period ending with a successful crown placement by my regular dentist. As a retiree, I have no work insurance. Being aware of this, Dr. Rick was very reasonable in the cost for the work. I will continue to see Dr. Rick for future work and recommend him without reservation.

    About Front Desk: Dr. Rick's front desk staff were courteous, friendly and professional over the phone and in person. I was always treated respectfully just as Dr. Rick treated me .

    I am a practicing dentist in the Elmhurst for 6 years. We have a high volume of patients in our clinic (Happy Tooth), and as such, many of them are in need of Root Canals. If it is something that we cannot handle in our office, we refer alomost exclusively (insurance based) to Cameo Endodontics. All of the patents that we send there come back with glowing reports! The go thinking that since they are ging to be getting a root canal done, it will be a tough painful appointment. Much to their pleasure they find that it isn't bad at all. To the contrary, getting a root canal done, at Cameo, is a breeze! As hesitant as I am to admit this, I recently had to have a root canal performed. I of course chose Cameo to go to. I had Dr. Rick Munaretto perform mine. I too am now a fan! He did an amazing job! I never felt pain, from start to finish! Never felt the shot, or anything after that. Furthermore, after my anesthesia wore off, I still didn't feel anything, like nothing was ever done. As I am a dentist, Dr. Munaretto showed me the X-ray after the procedure, and it looked perfect. The office, staff, and accomodations were all supurb. I wouldn't hesitate reccomending Cameo, referring my patients, or even going myself!
