Dr. Mark Oblad, Endodontist


"It is a wonderful time to be a dentist! The latest technological advancements in materials and procedures have increased the success rates of root canal treatments and have made root canals almost always pain free. I strive to treat my patients how I would want to be treated if I were in the dental chair, and I love helping my patients save their teeth!"
