Root Canal Awareness Week: Root Canals Aren’t What They Used to Be


Join the American Association of Endodontists in the tenth anniversary celebration of Root Canal Awareness Week, March 27 – April 2, 2016. Root Canal Awareness Week is a national effort to raise awareness of endodontists, so that patients and general dentists know to contact a specialist when root canal treatment is needed. It is an excellent time to explain the important role endodontists play in dental health, and to teach the public that root canals should not be feared. Root Canal Awareness Week:

SUPPORTS endodontists as root canal specialists

EDUCATES patients about the benefits of root canal treatment

DISPELS myths about root canal treatment

BUILDS relationships with other dental professionals

Root Canals Aren’t What They Used to Be

It’s not your grandfather’s root canal! Just like technology changes, so has root canal treatment.
