We are here to serve you and to acquaint ourselves with your needs, your problems and your fears.
Endodontic therapy provides a predictable method to retain most teeth. The evolution of treatment has been greatly influenced by new technologies. With that being said, we have available to us many new devices and methods to make your care comfortable and successful.
Our office is conveniently located at 5555 Peachtree Dunwoody Road and is easily accessible by Marta, a short walk from the Medical Center Station.
We are proud of our office, which utilizes state of the art equipment and advanced sterilization systems..
The First Visit
Your initial appointment will consist of any necessary x-rays, diagnosis and a consultation regarding your treatment options. If your treatment plan calls for a root canal, we will schedule another appointment for treatment. If you are in extreme pain, we will do our best..
