Welcome to the Center For MicroSurgical Endodontics

Come make your smile brighter with the Valley's top endodontists in Phoenix and Scottsdale!

The Phoenix endodontic practice of Dr. Aric Petersen and Dr. Glen Doyon  welcomes referring dentists and patients to our website. You may be asking yourself "what is endodontics and how does the practice of it apply to me?" Endodontics is the branch of dentistry related to the development, disease process, and treatment of the root canal spaces in a tooth. Both Dr. Doyon and Dr. Petersen are endodontists (otherwise known as root canal specialists), which means that they each completed two years of specialty training beyond dental school, and that their practice is focused completely on root canals. 

If you find yourself with tooth pain or a toothache, you may need root canal treatment.  However, you can rest assured that when you visit our office,  Dr. Petersen and Dr. Doyon will do a thorough examination and recommend the treatment that is best for you, even if it is not a root canal.  We often tell patients that they do not need any treatment!  We also recognize that not all teeth can be saved and we will be honest with you if we feel your tooth will not have a good prognosis with root canal treatment.  If that is the case, we will consult with your general dentist and if appropriate, we are happy to offer dental implants as an alternative when a tooth needs to be extracted.  

If you find yourself in need of a root canal or dental implant procedure, your general dentist will know if our services are needed. We have established relationships with a large number of local dentists throughout the Phoenix area who feel confident in referring their patients to us.

We offer a range of treatments and services carried out by an experienced team in a warm, caring environment. They know that undergoing a dental procedure is no small matter, and go to great lengths to make sure all treatments are performed in a manner that keeps patients anxiety and pain-free.

  • Root canal treatment can often be performed on the same day
  • Dental implant procedures are available in cases where root canal therapy is not appropriate
  • One of the first endodontic practices in Arizona to utilize CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) imaging
  • Various anti-anxiety techniques available, including IV sedation
  • Delta Dental Provider
  • Dr. Glen Doyon has practiced as both a general dentist and an endodontist in a career that has spanned over three decades
  • Dr. Aric Petersen's time as a Navy Officer offered him vast experience treating teeth affected by traumatic incidents

Our Scottsdale-based endodontic treatment office offers a compassionate, experienced team committed to making your experience with us a positive one. Dentists can feel good referring to us knowing their patients will be well treated here. Meanwhile, patients can rest easy knowing they are in eminently qualified hands and will receive the care and treatment they deserve.
