If you need treatment for a root canal infection or have been referred to St. Petersburg Endodontics in St. Petersburg, FL by your general dentist, you can rest assured that you are working with experienced and dedicated specialists. Our clinical director, Dr. Randall Hedrick is one of the most experienced endodontists in Pinellas County, having been practicing dentistry and endodontics for over 35 years, and is board certified by the American Board of Endodontics.
While many general dentists can perform root canal therapy, an endodontist has completed an additional 2-3 years of formal specialty training after dental school. Beyond that, the highest level of clinical qualification for an endodontist is to become board certified by the ABE. This is accomplished through several stages of intense testing, including; case reviews and detailed questioning by ABE examiners. So, how do you know which endodontist to see? Experience is one important factor, as is the technology and techniques they use.
Our specialists set themselves apart by using the most advanced technologies in the industry including the EndoVac™ irrigation system and high-powered microscopes, to get your root canal treatment right the first time.
St. Petersburg Endodontic’s strong track record of success and decades of experience will give you the peace of mind that you’ve chosen the right doctor for root canal treatment, root canal re-treatment, apicoectomy, or emergency care.
