The eleventh annual celebration of Root Canal Awareness Week is May 7-13. Root Canal Awareness Week is a national effort to raise awareness of endodontists, so that patients and general dentists know to contact a specialist when root canal treatment is needed. It is an excellent time to explain the important role endodontists play in dental health, emphasize the value of natural teeth and teach the public that root canals should not be feared. Root Canal Awareness Week:
SUPPORTS endodontists as root canal specialists
EDUCATES patients about the benefits of root canal treatment
DISPELS myths about root canal treatment
BUILDS relationships with other dental professionals
It’s not your grandfather’s root canal! Just like technology changes, so has root canal treatment.
Learn how endodontists, the specialists in saving teeth, use advanced technology and expert training to reinvent modern root canal treatment.
