Patient Comfort and Quality Care are Our Top Priorities

In our office, from your first phone contact with us until post-treatment care, you will receive the highest quality customer service. We believe that the best patient is an educated patient. Our knowledgeable staff will guide you through the entire endodontic experience by educating you about your dental condition, treatment, if any, that is most suitable for you, financial options, and many other aspects of endodontic care. 

Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain a healthy mouth as quickly and as economically as possible. We believe that people should have their own healthy teeth for an entire lifetime.  

Our focus on impeccable service, attention to detail, and genuine concern for your well being assures our guests of exceptional endodontics and excellent care. 

Our Business is Saving Teeth

Before any treatment is started, Dr. Collins will explain the treatment in detail, and you will understand why "root canals" are not like the experiences of the past.  The saying "drilling the nerve" or "as bad as a root canal" is becoming a myth and is now used as an analogy for something we don't like to do (which is unfortunate).  The technology has changed immensely from the past.  State-of-the-art technology now allows for painless root canal therapy.

At Collins Endodontics, a root canal treatment is comparable to having routine dental work completed.  We are able to visualize and inspect your tooth employing a surgical microscope, enhanced with an assistant scope as well.  Our digital radiography will be used to help in diagnosing the problem with your tooth, while exposing you to 80% less radiation than traditional film.  Pictures will be taken of your tooth so that you will be able to see what is happening as the treatment progresses. 

Dental 3D imaging allows Dr. Collins to view your teeth in all dimensions.  He can see problems not able to be seen with conventional dental x-rays.  We can enlarge the 3D images, examine them from any angle and essentially "look completely through the tooth". There are benefits to using 3D images. Often, difficult situations such as having extra roots, fractures, or an area of infection in the jaw can be visualized. These images can aid in diagnosing problems or be used during surgical intervention. We use "focused field" 3D imaging that exposes you to only a fraction of the radiation, equal to three dental x-rays.
