By: Dr. Todd Wasserman
10/28/2020

A root canal procedure is one of the most common dental treatments. It can save your tooth from needing to be extracted and prevent the need for implants or bridges.

Dr. Wasserman on Building a Dental Career through Relationships and Trust
12/09/2019

(Picture to the left is Dr. Wasserman's graduation photo from this July 2019 receiving his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry.)

That is, however, not the case. Many things lead up to my choice, and now I can say, with certainty, that twenty-one years of practicing has helped me to develop my own practice philosophy I approach my patients with today.
