OUR DOCTORS

An endodontist is a dentist who has attended several years of higher training post-dental school to learn specialized care of the root systems of the teeth. Endodontists save many teeth that would otherwise face extraction by clearing infection out of the roots and sealing the tooth to prevent further damage. This procedure is known as “Root Canal Therapy."
