Innovative Endodontics is a specialty practice dedicated to the treatment of root canals and related needs. Our practice prides itself on providing treatment that enables you to save your natural tooth.

We have invested in the latest technology including Zeiss dental operating microscopes to magnify and illuminate your tooth during treatment and address the unique anatomy of your tooth. We also utilize advanced three-dimensional imaging using the J. Morita cone beam technology. This technology enhances the diagnostic capabilities of traditional radiographs and is an impactful treatment adjunct.

As our name implies, we strive to provide care that exceeds the standard, both from a clinical standpoint, but also through a superior patient experience. While you are in our office, we will treat you like family and hope that by the end of your appointment, we will be an extension of your dental family.
