As specialists in the treatment of root canals, Professional Endodontics P. C. was one of the first endodontic groups in the state of Michigan. Dr. Dan Goodman and R. Matsura started our practice in 1951 and, since the very beginning, we’ve always regarded excellent patient care and the relationship with our referring doctors as our highest priority.

Since starting in Downtown Detroit, we have branched out to four state-of-the-art facilities in Clinton Township, Clarkston, St. Clair Shores and Southfield. All locations offer the latest in advanced dental delivery systems, comfortable chairs, microscopy, and digital radiography and Conebeam imaging (CBCT).

The doctors and staff at Professional Endodontics are very proud of the fact that all of our endodontists have been individually chosen as Best Dentists many years in a row by Hour Magazine.
