Being Referred To A Specialist
Patients are referred to Whitby Endodontics for complex cases.
The difference between our doctors and a general dentist is additional years of training and study in the field of dentistry. Your general dentist may identify challenging elements of your case and refer you to Whitby Endodontics in order to ensure the best possible outcome. The most common reasons for a patient to be referred to Whitby Endodontics include molar teeth or difficult canal anatomy, an elusive pain diagnosis, problems in teeth that have already had root canal treatment, fractures, and trauma to a tooth. Many dentists refer to all their patients who need endodontic treatment to Dr. Grossman or Dr. Geisler, and it may be helpful to recognize that general dentists make these referrals with the best interest of their patients in mind.
