Dr. Mark A. Massey of Greater Springfield Endodontics specializes in root canal therapy. Endodontic root canal treatment is a highly successful method of saving a tooth that would otherwise need extraction. A tooth with a well-done root canal treatment can last a lifetime, and the procedure can usually be completed in one or two appointments, and with modern anesthetic techniques that keep patients pain-free during the procedure. In all aspects of treatment, Dr. Massey only utilizes the most modern equipment and techniques to reach the highest possible treatment results.
Established in June of 2004, Greater Springfield Endodontics is celebrating ten years of serving the community. A graduate of the University of Missouri–Kansas City School of Dentistry and the Indiana University School of Dentistry Endodonitcs and recipient of advanced education in general dentistry through the United States Air Force, Dr. Massey’s mission is to provide the most excellent dental care and provide patients with the best experience they’ve ever had in a dental clinic.
“Give us the opportunity to exceed your expectations,” Dr. Massey says. “We put a lot of effort into ensuring the experience in our office is positive. Televisions in the ceiling above the dental chairs with headphones is one example of our attempt to make people feel at ease in our office.”
Dr. Massey and his team’s primary focus is to help people, and their secondary focus is to fix each patient’s teeth. Not only do they discuss concerns and expectations for each patient’s case, but take the time to answer any questions as well. Greater Springfield Endodontics’ staff uses microscopes and digital imaging to ensure that all canals are located and cleaned properly.
Greater Springfield Endodontics’ staff travels to the Good Samaritan Clinic in Mountain View, Missouri, the second Wednesday of every month to donate services for the day. Dr. Massey is also a member of the Sertoma Club, which, among other things, raises money for the Ronald McDonald Tooth Truck.
