I am a member of the American Association of Endodontists, Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics and College of Diplomates. Hopefully, knowing that I am “Board Certified” will add confidence in our office. Like many of you, I came out to visit during the winter and found the warm weather alluring so I opened my practice in 1990. In my spare time I lecture both nationally and internationally in addition to writing articles for publication (Click here for an article or here for another). I'm an advisor for Summit Dental Study Club and Endodontic Practice Magazine.
I also cofounded and teach endodontic continuing education with Dr. John S. Stropko DDS at Clinical Endodontic Seminars in Scottsdale, Arizona. I have invented over 20 endodontic products and techiniques.
What is an Endodontist and what do they do?
Endodontists are dentists who specialize in maintaining teeth through endodontic therapy -- procedures, involving the soft inner tissue of the teeth, called the pulp. The word "endodontic" comes from "endo" meaning inside and "odont" meaning tooth. Like many medical terms, it's Greek. All dentists are trained in diagnosis and endodontic therapy, however, some teeth can be especially difficult to diagnose and treat. That’s why you may have been referred to an endodontic specialist. In addition to dental school, endodontists receive two or more years of advanced education in this kind of treatment. They study root canal techniques and procedures in greater depth, for diagnosis and treatment of more difficult cases. For this reason, many dentists choose to refer their patients to endodontists.
