Preserving the natural dentition is an important goal in dentistry. Endodontics is such a rewarding specialty because it allows one to relieve patients of dental pain and also helps preserve the natural dentition. For these reasons, I decided to commit to this specialty through years of advanced training beyond dental school. With the understanding that many patients have a lot of anxiety prior to root canal therapy, my goal with every patient is to provide a customized approach to their treatment that will make each procedure as comfortable as possible.Dr. Vi C.
