What is an endodontist?
An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating the pulp of the tooth. Unlike regular dentists, endodontist’s understanding of the dental pulp makes them experts at performing root canals. Endodontists are sometimes referred to as root canal specialists. As an affiliate of the American Association of Endodontists, Dr. Shinn is highly qualified to be your endodontist. He has even passed the central regional board examination in 10 states. He is more than a root canal specialist, he’s an expert. You can read more about Dr. Shinn’s qualifications in his biography.

Our Patients love Us
When I was told that I would need a root canal, needless to say I was not happy. I had heard so many nightmarish stories in the past from people who have had them done and I did not want to take part in the nightmare. At all. However, upon arriving at the office, the Office Manager Barbara sensed my trepidation and immediately put me at ease and ensured me that I would have a positive experience. Next, Dr. Shinn's Assistant Brenda offered me soothing words and ensured me that I was in good hands. Then, enter Dr. Shinn. He was so nice and knowledgeable and took his time asking me questions and being very thorough in his explanations. My root canal was an absolute success, pain-free, and no problems or adverse effects whatsoever. I would absolutely recommend anyone needing this procedure done to go to Dr. Shinn!!
My experience was wonderful! Nothing negative happened from beginning to end. I had a root canal done and everything worked out well. I called the day before needing a root canal and Dr. Shinn and his staff came in 2 hours early the very next day to accommodate me - which was very nice of them. The office is vey nice and tranquil with easy listening music playing. My overall experience was excellent!!!
Dr. Shinn is the best Endontist in the Los Angeles area. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great dental office with a great staff and the best view of L.A as you relax in the comfort of brand new everything. Awesome dental work with a staff that makes you feel like family. It doesn't get any better than this.
