What is an Endodontist?


An Endodontist is a dentist who has undergone a minimum of 2 years of extra postgraduate training. This Specialist training allows an Endodontist to:

     1. Deal with diseases of the dental pulp and supporting structures
     2. Diagnose facial pain and related problems.

Your general dentist often refers patients for consultation when the diagnosis is complicated or when treatment is more difficult than normal. Aside from providing treatment, our role is also that of an educator. It is important that patients understand why they require treatment, what the treatment involves and what they can do to ensure the best possible outcome. We believe that a properly informed patient has the best chance of achieving the optimal result for any given case .i.e. The preservation of the natural tooth.
