Root Canal…what could be two of the scariest words in the English language.  Your dentist just asked you to schedule an appointment with an endodontist, thinking that you may need root-canal treatment.  This may be terrifying but selecting the right dental specialist is the key to an accurate diagnosis, a comfortable experience and a long lasting tooth…

Dear Valued Patient,

I thought it would be a good idea to explain why your dentist referred you to me.  After all, you have developed trust with your dentist over the years and going to a whole new dental office may add to your fears.  Despite this, there are good reasons for seeing an endodontist.

Since this is the person you need to trust to save your natural teeth and/or advise you on the best treatment.  Prior to going into Endodontic I had 2 years of emergency at Denver.  This was right after completing dental school at University of Pacific.  This helped me understand emergency patients. Then I decided to go into Endodontic, this is a total of two years of additional education at Nova Southeastern University.  The main focus of endodontics is to study cases of the pulp and how to treat them.  To continue to be educated on the latest of endodontics I am an active board member at SPEAR, Novato… And I am board certified. What does this mean?
