“WHAT’S AN ENDODONTIST?”
Endodontists Save Teeth
All endodontists are dentists, but less than three percent of dentists are endodontists. Endodontists are specialists who have completed additional training beyond dental school. This specific training allows them to be experts in performing root canal treatment and other procedures relating specifically to the nerve of the tooth. There may be a multitude of reasons why someone requires root canal treatment. In most teeth, the tooth has been diseased, and endodontists are trained to maintain the natural dentition by treating the tooth and the nerve using specialized technique and superior technologies.
Thank you for choosing London Endodontics. Your initial appointment with us will consist of a consultation first to explain your diagnosis and treatment options. Sometimes we may be able to do treatment at the same visit.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Referral form
- X-Ray Films (if provided by your dentist)
- Your complete medication list
- Dental Insurance card(s)
IMPORTANT: All patients under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your general dentist has taken x-ray films, you may request that they forward them to our office. If additional x-rays are necessary, they will be taken at our office.
We at London Endodontics strive to provide the best care for all our patients at the most reasonable cost to our patients. As a specialty office, we do not accept direct payments from your insurance. At the completion of your treatment, payment is due for all fees charged regardless of your insurance coverage. For your convenience, we accept Debit, Visa, MasterCard or Cash.
We are happy to assist you in determining your insurance coverage of dental specialty fees. Please note that it is the responsibility of your insurance carrier to reimburse you directly. If you have any questions regarding our financial policy or regarding your account, please do not hesitate to contact us.
