There are many misconceptions surrounding root canal (endodontic) treatment and whether patients experience root canal pain. The American Association of Endodontists wants you to have accurate information. As always, when considering any medical procedure, you should get as much information as you can about all of your options.
Dr. Sam Switzer was born in Calgary and graduated in 1987 with a DMD from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. He practiced general dentistry in Calgary, from 1987-1990. He earned a Certificate in Endodontics from Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia in 1992 and has had an Endodontic practice in Calgary since then.
