Endodontists are known to be 'specialists in saving teeth'. This is because endodontic treatment helps people retain teeth that would otherwise be extracted. Nowadays, people are living longer and keeping their teeth longer. In the science of medicine and dentistry, it is known that nothing man-made can replace what God has given us. Our practice encourages people to enrich their quality of life by helping them retain all of their teeth for as long as possible in maximum health, function and esthetics.
Our dentists are committed to providing you with the highest quality endodontic treatment and diagnosis, using the most advanced technology. We create a relaxed, comfortable and caring environment in order to provide you with the best experience possible. We cater to our patients, and our goal is to pamper you.
A standard of excellence in personalized endodontic care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use endodontic microscopy to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide dental health care vs. disease care. Thats why we focus on thorough exams checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, and taking x-rays when necessary. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modernendodontic office can utilize to provide state-of-the-artendodontic care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
Everyday, fearful and anxious patients walkthrough our doors. Because root canaltreatments have become synonymous withpain, patients are understandably nervousabout coming to our practice.

With modern technology we workhard to restore our patients oral health and providea positive, enjoyable experience.
By magnifying the tooth as much as twenty times, this technology greatly enhances our ability to see down into the root canals and helps us identify any additional canals and/or cracks in the tooth. Scientific research shows that the surgical operating microscope can significantly increase the success of root canal treatments and surgical procedures performed.
All radiographs are taken with digital sensors, providing instant viewing on our monitors while significantly reducing radiation levels compared to film-based x-rays. This technology also allows for secure electronic transfer of medical information to our patients' dentists.
