Dowling and Dowling, P.A.

Why is my dentist referring me to a specialist?

All dentists, your dentist included, received training in endodontic (root canal) and periodontal treatment during dental school along with learning all of the other dental procedures. Often they refer patients to a specialist because they believe it is in the patients best interest, due to the difficulty of the treatment, to have a specialist perform the treatment. The endodontist and periodontist also graduated from dental school, and then completed two or more years of advanced education in endodontics or periodontics. Endodontists perform routine root canals, as well as more difficult treatment such as re-treatment, apicoectomies and treating traumatic injuries. Periodontists treat diseases of the gum tissue.

What else to bring.

  • Referral slip from your general dentist, if you have one.
  • A list of all current medications.
  • A copy of your dental insurance card.
