Why did you choose endodontics?

The things that I find most attractive about endodontics are the technical challenges, the treatment of pain, the management of nervous patients and the attempt (but not always to succeed). As experts with their practices limited to endodontic treatment, endodontists are efficient and accurate.

Why did you choose endodontics?

The things that I find most attractive about endodontics are the technical challenges, the treatment of pain, the management of nervous patients and the attempt (but not always to succeed). As experts with their practices limited to endodontic treatment, endodontists are efficient and accurate. They are well-equipped and trained to treat anxious patients, patients in pain and, in most cases, can complete the procedure in a relatively shorter treatment time. In general, seeing a specialist for your root canal treatment ensures that you are receiving the highest quality treatment, and this generally results in a positive experience, a better prognosis, and a faster cure.

Similarly, most endodontists offer flexibility to adapt to emergencies, so treatment delays are minimized and patients can get relief from dental pain quickly, usually on the same day they need it. I like to focus on a specific area of dentistry. I like to go from start to finish very quickly. I like details; endodontics is a very detail-oriented specialty and most endodontists focus a lot on details.

We were trained to use microscopes and specialized equipment in dental school. What made you decide to have root canal treatment? When I graduated from dental school, I wanted to be a general dentist, because I really enjoyed all facets of dentistry. When I was in the Air Force at Bolling Air Force Base, three of us were selected to rotate between the different specialties. My first rotation was endodontics, and it turned out to be just what I liked.

I was able to help people by relieving their pain, and I found that working in small spaces adapted to my personality, since as a child I liked to build model cars and planes. Endodontics is a specialized branch of dental health care that focuses on diagnosing and treating tooth pain. When a person experiences oral or facial pain, has injured a tooth, or has teeth that are sensitive to hot or cold foods and drinks, they can see an endodontist for help. The BLS reports that job prospects for specialty dental professionals, such as endodontists, are good, especially for those who choose to work in underserved areas.

Endodontists can also choose to work as independent contractors within a DSO or open their own specialized practice where they work with patient referrals from general dentists, orthodontists, or other dental health professionals. Some endodontists choose to pursue a career path to education, train the next generation of dental specialists, or focus on research that will help further advance the field of endodontics.
