Dr. Thomas Baron has been providing comfortable, relaxed, and pain-free dental treatment to his Cincinnati area patients for over 25 years.

He has additional training and expertise in root canal therapy ,often combining it with IV sedation to completely take the fear out of this tooth-saving procedure.
