At Towson Endodontic Associates we have committed ourselves to providing a level
of care that exceeds
excellent dental treatment. As Endodontists we provide specialized
treatment in conjunction with your primary care dentist. A successful treatment plan requires close
coordination between the specialist and the primary care dentist during both pre and post procedure. To
ensure the proper level of treatment and coordination we follow a 3 point system:

- We understand that patients are in discomfort and need to have their
procedure completed expeditiously. Our schedule is designed to
accommodate emergency appointments. In most situations, we are able to
see patients the same day
they are referred to us.
- All Endodontists are equipped to deal with discomfort. We are unique in our practice
as we will educate the patient in their treatment, taking as much time as needed
for the patient to understand their options, the specifics of their treatment and how this
fits into their overall treatment plan. It has always been our experience
that an informed patient will experience less stress.
- Immediately following the completion of the endodontic procedure, we explain to the patient that
although the discomfort will subside, they will require a follow up
appointment with their primary care dentist to proceed with the final
restoration of their tooth. We will provide a copy of the treatment
records to the primary care dentist identifying what procedures were
performed and when the treatment was completed. Every patient is
encouraged to have a 6 month recall appointment to follow-up on their care at our office.
To make our patients' experience as relaxing and stress free as possible, each
patient treatment room is equipped with HD flat panel monitors to watch relaxing
videos or Patients may choose to listen to Satellite Radio during their treatment.
