About Us

Endodontics of the Ozarks provides specialized dental services in the Springfield and Branson, MO areas. We specialize in root canal treatment, root canal retreatment, endodontic surgery, and dental implants. These services may be needed if your tooth becomes infected, you have visible swelling or injury to the tooth, or senstitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums. A dentist will refer you to us if they think it is necessary.

Endodontics of the Ozarks is a dental practice dedicated exclusively to endodontic care. Root canals aren’t what they used to be. Our Doctor’s utilize new technologies that shorten chair time and improve treatment accuracy, making visits surprisingly pleasant.  Endodontics of the Ozarks employs state of the art technology—including digital radiography, surgical microscopes, and the latest sterilization equipment. These new advancements provide many benefits—including minimizing radiation exposure to the patient and staff as well as enhancing visualization and identification of the intricate conditions of the root canal system, thus, assuring an accurate diagnosis, appropriate treatment, and proper care to the patient.
