root canal near me

If you are searching for a “root canal near me” – or, more specifically, “endodontist in Waxhaw, NC” – then chances are you need to find an endodontist, and we’re pleased we are in your area.

While a general dentist may perform root canals, an endodontist is a dental specialist who completed additional training beyond general dentistry in root canals and has daily practice performing them.

Ballantyne Endodontics proudly serves Waxhaw, NC, residents. As endodontists, we strive to save your natural teeth whenever possible. Maintaining your teeth preserves your natural bite and smile and is the best option for your whole-body wellbeing.

Modern-day root canals are pain-free, safe, and holistic – but we understand if you are a little nervous about your upcoming procedure. We recommend you take some time to enjoy your area to keep you calm before your procedure.

While currently a center for antique shopping, Waxhaw has a long and rich history. The area's original residents were Native Americans, often known as the Wysacky or the Waxhaws. German and Scots-Irish immigrants settled in the area in the mid-eighteenth century, most working as farmers. In fact, President Andrew Jackson was born nearby.

Here are a few fun activities to enjoy in and near Waxhaw. We encourage our patients to explore some of the special attractions found in the area while they’re here for their endodontic procedure.

Since the railway was important to Waxhaw’s growth and history, the David G. Barnes Children’s Park has an engaging train-themed playground. If you have energetic children, a trip to the park is a good way to let off steam.

On a hot day, consider cooling off with a swim at Cane Creek Park. Or spend the day in the park enjoying activities like fishing, boating, hiking, picnic areas, disc golf, and biking or riding using the multi-use trails.

Your Endodontist - Waxhaw, NC

If your dentist recommends a root canal, we would like to take this opportunity to assure you that, for most people, a successful root canal restores wellness and relieves pain. Although a general dentist may perform root canals, we encourage you to seek care from an endodontist specialist.

This is because the average general dentist performs just two root canals a week, compared to an endodontist who typically performs around 25 per week. Since the root canal system within your tooth is both minuscule and complex, experience helps make sure we get it right!

In addition, a practice like Ballantyne Endodontics uses today’s best imaging and dental technology to get to the root of the problem. We have three compassionate and skilled endodontists on our team, and we’d love for you to meet them.

Our founder, Sonia Chopra, D.D.S., describes herself as the “ultimate dental patient.” She has experienced extensive dental and endodontic care, and she was also the first female board-certified endodontist in Charlotte. She established Ballantyne Endodontics in 2008 and has 15 years of experience in endodontics alone.

Dr. Mark Tadrissi, D.D.S., is a problem solver when it comes to dental pain. He has over 15 years of combined experience in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and endodontic care. With rich, well-rounded experience, Waxhaw residents can rely on Dr. Tadrissi and his colleagues at Ballantyne Endodontics.

Dr. Tanya Reiter, D.D.S., excels in endodontic surgical treatment, and her compassionate bedside manner with patients can’t be beat. Her commitment to excellence permeated her academic life resulting in her being in the top 10% of her class at dental school.
