Meet Our Doctors
Endodontists are dentists who undertake an additional three years of specialist training in the discipline of endodontics to be qualified as a specialist. Like many other medical specialists, Endodontists are highly specialised and have a very strict scope of practice, which includes pain diagnosis, advance or challenging root canal treatment, retreatment, endodontic surgery, and management of dental trauma.
