Thank you for your interest in Northern Virginia Endodontic Associates, a dental practice dedicated exclusively to endodontic care.
As an endodontic patient, what should I expect?
- A comprehensive examination to diagnose orthofacial pain and pulpal injury, and determine if the tooth is a good candidate for endodontic therapy.
- Non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed.
- Under certain circumstances, microsurgery may be indicated. As specialists, we have extensive experience in this area, and we utilize sophisticated equipment to ensure the best results.
In order to make your visit as efficient as possible, and also to be environmentally conscious, we strive to maintain a digital, paperless office.

You will be provided a unique User ID and Password by email after scheduling your appointment.

Your First Visit
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to your treatment (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications, whether prescription, over-the-counter, or herbal remedies.
