the story of merchant endodontics

Doctors Steve and Kim Merchant both have a passion for providing quality and compassionate endodontic care to their patients.  At Merchant Endodontics, every patient is treated as if they are family.

At Merchant Endodontics, our reputation was built working with some of the best dentists in Southern California.  As a result, we receive referrals to our practice from all over San Diego and Orange County.  There are good reasons you have been referred or have found Merchant Endodontics.  First and foremost, treatment will not be recommended if it is not necessary and in your best interest.  Secondly, you will receive quality expert treatment.  Lastly, we will listen to your concerns and provide compassionate care.  When the “Father of Microscopic Endodontics”, Dr. Gary Carr, required endodontic treatment, he came to Merchant Endodontics.  Dr. Merchant was proud and honored to give back the service that Dr. Carr had inspired in him. When Dr. Merchant introduced utilizing cone beam computed tomography into our practice in 2010, all quality-oriented endodontists had to follow.  The advantages to seeing the tooth and jaw anatomy in 3-D was indisputable.  Equally important is our desire to care for patients as individuals who bring unique personal histories, circumstances and expectations.

At Merchant Endodontics, we desire to change perceptions about root canal treatment.  We will be honest, compassionate and gentle. We listen and will make the best decision with you.  We want you to have peace of mind in making this investment in yourself.
