Referring Doctors

As one of our referring dental offices, we thank you. The time and effort you take in helping your patients get specialized endodontic treatment to help them save their teeth is greatly appreciated.

Why Refer Patients to Us at Southern Endodontic Specialists

You have options for specialists to refer your patients to for endodontic treatment. Southern Endodontic Specialists offers your patients high-quality care and exceptional customer service. We accept patients with and without dental insurance. Plus, we only use the latest technology in the field, which helps us to provide patients with treatments that reduce the chances of complications.

Gentlewave Technology

Not all endodontists use the technology that we do at Southern Endodontic Specialists. One of the most innovative is the Gentlewave system. With this system, we can provide patients with root canal therapy, typically in a single visit. Plus, the system itself cleans out the canals inside teeth better than an endodontist’s instruments and requires a smaller hole in the tooth. It accomplishes this by using irrigating solutions and sound waves to flush out the tooth completely. Almost all patients, 96.6%, report little to no pain only 48 hours after their root canal.

A Digital Office That Saves Our Patients’ Time

Our patients don’t have to spend time when they arrive at our office for their appointments filling out paperwork. Thanks to our TDO software, we no longer use paper forms. Our patients can fill out the necessary information online before they arrive. All information undergoes encryption for secure storage.

Thanks to our paperless practice, our front offices can operate more efficiently and offer better customer service to our patients and referring dentists.

Digital Imaging That Exposes Patients to Less Radiation

The need for endodontists to see inside the tooth when making a diagnosis and planning treatment is crucial. To get the most precise images and minimize radiation exposure for our patients, we use digital radiography and cone beam imaging. Patients have 80% less radiation exposure with our digital radiography than with traditional film-based X-rays. Plus, our endodontists can use the computer to zoom in and enhance images to see more clearly without requiring more X-rays from the patient.

We also use cone beam CTs for more in-depth, three-dimensional imaging. Our CS 8100 and 8200 3D systems exposes patients to less radiation than many other CT imaging devices. The cone-beam system targets a specific area and uses fast scanning to minimize radiation exposure further. Our endodontists have high-definition, three-dimensional images, and our patients have exposure to minimal radiation levels.

Convenient Locations in the Tri-Parish Area

Our professional endodontists offer their services from two locations in the Tri-Parish area, Houma and Thibodaux. Therefore, wherever your patients live in the area, they will have a Southern Endodontic Specialists location near them.
Some Services we offer to our patients include:

  • Root canal therapy

If you have a patient with any of the above conditions, please refer them to us for specialized care to save the affected tooth.
