The DC Endodontic Center is located in a new state-of-the-art facility where we offer the 'latest and the greatest' treatment and technology options available. At the DC Endodontic Center, we continually seek opportunities to enhance our knowledge and skills.
In an effort to become 'green', we are a completely paperless facility. All communication, including patient charts as well as all images (x-rays), are digital, which minimizes the amount of paper, printing, and most important, radiation to our patients while avoiding the use of developing chemicals hazardous to the environment. The use of digital affords us instant and current communication with our patients and their dental team.
All endodontic procedures in this office are performed under the operating microscope. Microscope enhanced endodontics allows complete visualization of the root canal system. High-resolution digital images, from the microscope, are taken during procedures and are included in reports to the referring doctors. These images greatly enhance the communication between offices. Internal problems such as resorption defects and fractures can also be directly visualized and communicated to the patient and referring dentist. Dr. Noguera is committed to staying on the cutting edge of technology. We use the newest generation of digital sensors for radiographs (X rays) with portable x-ray sources. This results in the highest image quality with less radiation exposure than previous sensors, and much less radiation than conventional film. Today, we also offer cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT). This exciting new technology allows us to visualize the teeth and supporting structures in 3-D, thereby allowing us to accurately diagnose and treat lesions that were impossible to detect with conventional film which is 2-dimensional.
Many advancements have happened in endodontics in the last ten years. There are numerous clinical improvements, new dental materials as well as technological advancements which enable us to treat teeth with more precision and a higher rate of success. The operating microscope and the CBCT has enabled us to visualize, treat and resolve problems which not so many years ago would have been impossible to treat or would ultimately have required an extraction.

I rarely read or write reviews -- But like the reviews below, Dr Nogeura is, indeed, terrific, both re her superb technical expertise and her care and accessibility for patients. She and her excellent assistants ensured the root canal was easy and painless; clearly explained everything while she worked and after; all logistics were easily handled; and she and her entire staff are delightful Many thanks to Suzie, Zena and La Tanya-- and to Dr. Nogeura herself. I cannot recommend this practice highly enough!

Dr. Noguera did a great job. She explained the X-ray results, the procedure of the root canal, what she was doing at certain points in the procedure, and the things I needed to do afterwards. She was very attentive to any signs of pain and quickly remedied them. Her assistant Susie was also very capable and very good at explaining things in response to my questions. Both of them were also really nice as people. I give them my high recommendation.

I have had several root canals. This time it was my upper molar. The diagnosis was excellent. Very unusual symptoms which Dr. Noguera aced. The root canal itself was performed painlessly using all the latest technology. I was given explanations all along of what she was doing and similarly post op instructions. Dr. Noguera is the best. Strongly recommended.
