THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC 

 

It has now been more than a year since the Covid-19 virus entered our lives.  The dental community did an excellent job stepping up to the task of protecting their patients, staff and themselves, during the pandemic, and continue to do so.  Our commitment to your safety is still unwavering.  Infection control has always been a top priority for us at Southern New Hampshire Endodontics.  Our office continues to follow infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, so our protocols  remain current.  When you are referred to us, please understand it is important to electronically fill out your record from home and be prepared that we will ask you pre-screening questions regarding possible Covid-19 symptoms and contacts, and when you arrive we will take your temperature.  We no longer have magazines in the reception area, as these items are difficult to clean and disinfect.  I have worked hard to be sure we have all the recommended and necessary PPE for your care.  We will do the best we can to manage appointments to allow for social distancing between patients - we will ask for your patience and understanding for us to accomplish this.  There are many more procedures, some of which you may observe and others that are done behind the scenes, all instituted to provide a safe environnment for your care.  We look forward to seeing you and please call us if you have any questions.  --- Dr. Michael Marshall

NEWS BULLETIN
Again selected as one of the top endodontists in the state!

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Marshall’s peers once again selected him as one of the top endodontists, in the entire state, for 2021 - 2022.  He is especially proud to have been selected as the very top vote getter twice, in recent years.  As explained by “New Hampshire Magazine” (in the August issue), because this honor “is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which dentists and specialists throughout New Hampshire cast votes on the ability of other dentists and specialists, inclusion in ‘topDentists’ is considered a singular honor”.  

 

 

3-D IMAGING HAS REVOLUTIONIZED ENDODONTICS

CBCT technology is certainly the most important technological advance in endodontics since the surgical microscope.  It allows for three-dimensional viewing of a tooth and the surrounding hard tissue structures.  Having this technology available, in order to provide state-of- the-art endodontic care for patients, requires an exceptional commitment on the part of the endodontist.  First, the cost of the equipment and installation is substantial.  Second, because the volume of information is so large and different in appearance, compared with conventional radiography, many, many hours of continuing education and practice are required for the doctor to become proficient in reading three-dimensional scans.  Third, it usually takes one to two hours to read a scan, and then process and convey the information.  However, the information which can be attained is unbelievable and often proves to be essential in the proper handling of a case.  I incorporated CBCT technology into my patient care, more than four years ago, and am continually amazed and astounded with the unexpected information I receive from a 3-D scan.  Without doubt, it is amazing and now an essential innovation, in the world of endodontics, and is destined to be considered the standard of care, at some point in the future.  Follow this link to learn more specifically how 3D technology helps in the care of my patients.   

 

 

Our office has CBCT technology!  The benefits of three-dimensional imagery in endodontics are tremendous, since it allows for more accurate diagnosis and an understanding of what might be the best treatment (without having to actually enter the tooth).  In addition, it increases the chances of providing successful endodontics, when complexities are present, so they can be observed and understood, before the treatment is even started.  It is just another way of providing patients with the best care possible.  Please open this link to learn more about this exciting technology and supportive research:  3D images with our CBCT

ANNUAL AAE MEETING CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19

The annual AAE meeting is a wonderful education forum, where there are literally hundreds of lectures, demonstrations and presentations by some of the worlds most renowned educators and research scientists on many topics, as well as displays of the most recent equipment and innovations.  Whereas the local courses are typically  designed for general dentists, this event is specific for the specialty of endodontics and specialists from all over the world usually attend.  This meeting allows endodontists the opportunity to stay on the cutting edge of new information in order to better care for their patients.  This year, because of the Covid pandemic, the meeting was held virutally.  

THE MAINE COAST HALF AND FULL MARATHON

Dr. Marshall and his daughter, Bailey, planned to continue their running tradition by participating in the Maine Coast Half and Full Marathon.  It's a beautiful course through Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Biddeford.  Bailey ran in the Cape Cod Marathon in Falmouth, this past fall.  It was cold, raining and windy, with waves crashing onto the roads and runners, along the shore; but Bailey persevered and posted a great time!  They had trained and were ready for the event, but then the marathon was cancelled because of the pandemic- better safe than sorry!  However, Dr. Marshall and Bailey continue training and await the next opportunity.
