Save your teeth: a Patient's Guide
to endodontic empowerment.


The pearly whites your mama gave you are crucial for your bite, smile, digestion, and airway. No implant or bridge is ever going to be the same as your natural tooth.

The 32 teeth in your mouth are 32 chances that your life may be impacted by endodontics, the dental specialty of saving teeth. I want to empower you to make the best decisions for your health, every time.

You don’t need a dental degree to learn how to read your own tooth stories. I created this comprehensive online course so that you can:

  • Trust what your body is telling you and advocate for your oral health.
  • Communicate with your dentist with confidence.
  • Understand your treatment options.
  • Know what to do when a tooth is injured or you are told you need an extraction.
  • Feel certain that you can get out of pain, often without extracting your tooth.

Knowledge is the Root of wellness.
