Endodontist

Overview

When you join a DentalOne Partners supported practice, you have more time to focus on what really matters – providing your patients with the most advanced dental care available. We provide the managerial, the marketing, and the technical administrative expertise so you can do what you do best - practice dentistry. Best of all, our support delivers measurable results. In fact, many of the supported practices rank in the top 5% nationally. For almost three decades, we have been committed to helping Dentists operate their dental practices more efficiently and profitably, while offering patients dental care that is both state-of-the-art and affordable. Now we’re ready to work for you.

 

Purpose: The Endodontist primarily specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of any damage or injury to the tooth pulp as well as the tissue and nerves within and surrounding the root of a tooth that have become damaged or infected due to some type of bacteria. General dentists will refer endodontic cases that are beyond their knowledge and scope of abilities, and the endodontic specialist should expect to treat more complex and difficult endodontic cases than the typical general dentist. The Endodontist should be comfortable treating cases with dilacerated roots, calcifications, pulpal stones, retreatments and more difficult to manage cases. The Endodontist ensures the company’s clinical and financial success by providing superior patient care and service and building and maintaining successful working relationships with team members.
