South Mountain Endodontics Opens
The South Mountain area is growing again and can now add South Mountain Endodontics to its list of professional services. The new practice is located on the northwest corner of 19th Avenue and Baseline Road and owned by local resident Dr. Percy B. Twine.
An endodontist is a dental specialist like an orthodontist or an oral surgeon, only they complete additional schooling to specialize in root canal treatment. Modern day root canal therapy techniques have evolved to dispel the popular myths about the procedure1. Patients are frequently pleasantly surprised by the lack of pain and discomfort experienced during the procedure. Many patients were even unaware that there was even such a thing as a root canal specialist and are amazed by the use of a microscope during their procedure.
Dr. Twine has lived in the South Mountain area for four years and is very familiar with the area. He worked for several years in offices throughout the Valley prior to opening South Mountain Endodontics. Dr. Twine worked very hard in a climate unsupportive to small business for over a year to bring a private endodontic office to the South Mountain community. Whenever possible, he seeks local vendors for any services that the office requires. For example, Cesar Graphics on 27th Ave and Baseline Rd is the printing service for the office.
The interior designer was a local choice as well.
“Well, my wife took care of that part for me. It’s a good thing too because if you left it up to me, the office would have been done in Steelers colors,” he said. “She did a fantastic job in my opinion; the office has a warm and welcoming décor.”
“In building the office, we purchased the technology and equipment that we needed but avoided granite countertops and such in order to keep costs down,” said Dr.Twine when asked about the process of building the office. “At South Mountain Endodontics, we can’t work for free, but we do understand how difficult things are and we do our very best to work with patients, which is why we take most insurance plans and are very sympathetic to uninsured small business owners,” he said. The office also maintains a Spanish-speaking employee in order to better serve the area.
South Mountain Endodontics, LTD is conveniently located in the South Mountain Pavillion Shopping Center sharing a wall with Starbucks on the northwest corner of 19th Avenue and Baseline Road.
