“Throughout my career I’ve made it a priority to keep abreast of advances in technology. Any technique or equipment that can make endodontics more effective, longer-lasting or more comfortable allows me to offer patients a higher standard of care. After all, helping people is why I became an endodontist in the first place. In the end, my favorite thing is to hear my patients say ‘Everything I’ve heard about root canals is a lie.’”
