If you are reading this page, it may be that your General Dentist has referred you to see Dr. Starr for a consultation and/or treatment on one or more of your teeth. You may be thinking, "What is an Endodontist, and why am I being referred?"
You may be experiencing tooth pain (pain to hot or cold, sweets, pressure or biting) and know you need help. Many patients see Dr. Starr after being referred by a family member or friend who has been a former patient. You may still have questions...
An Endodontist is a dental specialist who deals with infections that occur inside the tooth. Endodontists complete two years of full-time post-doctorate education to become a specialist, and are experts in their specialized field of practice. Since Dr. Starr dedicates his practice solely to endodontic treatment, he has successfully completed thousands of root canal treatments, making treatment faster, more predictable, and easier for you as a patient.
More than 14 million teeth receive some form of root canal treatment each year -- you're not alone… Moreover, you're in great hands with Dr. Starr!
