Endodontists are dental specialists with an additional two or more years of post-graduate specialized training beyond dental school. The average endodontist completes 25 root canal treatments a week, while general dentists do about two root canals a week. Endodontists are also experienced at finding the cause of oral and facial pain that may be difficult to diagnose.

To schedule an appointment, it is best to have a referral from your dentist but it is not a requirement.

Dr. Welch and staff are happy to make referrals to Atlanta dentists who can help with the placement of a permanent crown and further dental care.
