Top 5 Endodontists in Toronto

Do you know that most endodontists perform an average of 25 root canals on a weekly basis? Because they don’t do cleanings or fillings, they’re completely focused on addressing complex tooth problems involving the tooth pulp.

If you suspect that you’ve got a toothache that needs a specialist’s eye – or if your dentist has already recommended that you see a specialist – read on below for our review of Toronto’s top-rated endodontists.

How much does a root canal cost in Toronto?

To give you an idea of how much a root canal procedure is in Toronto, here is the average cost per tooth.

ToothPrice Range
Front Teeth$300 - $1,500
Bicuspids$400 - $1,800
Molars$500 - $2,000

The cost will vary depending on the severity of the tooth problem, tooth location, and if it’s a retreatment of a previous root canal procedure. The expertise of the dentist will also add to the cost.

A root canal is covered by most dental insurance but only reimbursable once a treatment plan is submitted by your dentist. Thus, patients have to cover the cost first on the day of the treatment.

A dentist may suggest added protection by placing either a dental crown or filling on the treated tooth. However, this will entail an additional cost of between $90 – $300. 

The Best Endodontists in Toronto

Root canal procedures can be complicated and expensive. So, we have lined up the best endodontists in Toronto based on these criteria:

Dentist’s Expertise – We selected clinics whose endodists whose length of practice establishes their expertise and reputation to perform endodontic procedures.
Patient Care – We chose endodontists with a reputable bedside manner. They put the patients at ease before the procedure and check on them during recovery. 
Patient referrals – This means that optometrists frequently refer to the listed ophthalmologists should their patients require surgical treatment.  
Accessibility – We went for clinics that are accessible and conveniently located. We also gave plus points for wheelchair accessibility.

His practises privately at Endodontic Specialists where he treats patients with precision and care. He is known for his ability to minimise pain or discomfort during procedures, and for his commendable bedside manner.

The clinic where he practises, Endodontic Specialists, provides a wide array of endodontics services for common and traumatic dental injuries.

Foreign language-speaking patients will be glad to know the dentists can speak not just English but also Spanish, Portuguese, French, Filipino, Urdu, and Greek.

The clinic operates most of the days of the week so it would be easy to book a schedule for yourself. However, it’s quite a bummer that it is closed on Sundays when patients are more available.

  • Known for his “light touch” that aims to minimise pain or discomfort
  • Accommodes same-day and emergency appointments

Customer Reviews

Procedure done well

“I broke my front tooth two weekends ago and was in a lot of pain as the nerve was still alive. Dr Grossman and the team at Endodontic Specialists were so helpful, caring and professional. Within a few days I was in the chair for a root canal, the procedure went extremely well and I was pain free shortly after. I had heard of friends having nightmare experiences with root canals elsewhere and was fearful of the procedure. I would highly recommend Dr Grossman and his team.” – Stephanie 

Worth the price

“I was in terrible pain and was very relieved when Dr. Partnoy was able to fit me in for a root canal. He was very thorough and did a fantastic job. The procedure was quick and painless. I’ve had two previous root canals with different dentists and this was by far the best experience. Worth the price.” – Miena

Currently, she is also a clinical instructor at the Universtiy of Toronto while maintaining her private practice in Riverstreet. 

Dr. Markovic builds good rapport with her clients by her thorough explanation of treatment plans. From what we’ve been told, her friendly and reassuring manner greatly eases patients’ anxieties during procedures. 

We found out that she is capable of saving teeth that were thought to be beyond saving by other dentists, which is impressive. 

Her clinic, Riverstreet Endodontists, is open for long hours on weekdays – they close at 8pm. This offsets the fact that they’re closed on weekends.

The clinic has digital radiography capabilities, which reduces by 80% radiation exposure for clients. It also provides Spotify-connected dark glasses that clients can use during procedures, which is a nice thoughtful touch.

The clinic is conveniently accessible by car and public transport. It’s also housed on the first floor of a historical buildingm, which makes it easily accessible to those with limited mobility.

Pros

Customer Reviews

Dentist answers calls on weekends

“My dentist referred me to Dr. Markovic for an assessment of a back molar. I knew I needed a root canal and was terrified. They managed to put me at ease very quickly and I underwent the procedure without pain. I would recommend them to anyone needing a root canal. I was also impressed that Dr. Markovic picked up her phone on the second ring on a Saturday morning to answer my questions.” – Marie Louise

Awesome support team

“Root canals get a bad rap! So, naturally I was terrified to get my first, but everything was so much smoother [and less scary] than expected. Dr Markovic was patient, gentle and thorough with all of the information I needed before, during and after the treatment. Having a specialist for my first major dental treatment made me feel confident and the results show. The supporting team was awesome and follow up calls were appreciated as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone putting off that scary root.” – Alicia

At the helm of Rosedale Endodontics is Dr. Nghia Huynh. His priority is to deliver exceptional dental care with various endodontic services and use of modern technologies.

Dr. Huynh practised general dentistry before completing an endodontic degree in 2017. Since then he has been doing endodontic procedures that eventually earned him membership in the Royal College of Dentists of Canada.  

With the use of modern dental software, dental operating microscope, and digital imaging, he helps clients experience smooth and painless procedures.

We also learned that patients do not feel uneasy and apprehensive to going to this clinic. They attribute this to Dr. Huynh’s patience and professionalism in explaining the process and his gentleness during the procedure.

We hear that his lines are always open to patients anytime they have concerns. The staff also does follow-up calls after the procedure to check on how they are feeling and answer further questions.

A convenience that clients found with this clinic is its accessibility from the Sherbourne subway station, as well as being located across Rosedale medical building. 

Do note though, that it is closed on weekends and operates half-day on Fridays. However, they reportedly do their best to accommodate last-minute appointments, especially during emergency cases.

Pros

  • Conveniently located
  • Prior experience in general dentistry
  • Highly responsive to patient quieries
  • Post-procedure follow-ups
  • Tries to accommodate last-minute appointments

Cons

  • Only one practising endodontist
  • Short operating hours on Fridays
  • Closed on weekends

Customer Reviews

Dental team is extremely professional

Had a root canal back in December 2020 after Dr Huynh was recommended by my dentist. It was a very smooth procedure and I felt very welcomed at the clinic. Both Dr Huynh and Joanna are extremely professional but yet friendly. In short, I would 100% recommend their service and that you would be in great hands. – Howard

Painless root canal procedure

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Nghia Huynh and Joanna at Rosedale Endodontics. The entire root canal process was painless and everything was beautifully managed. There is a lot of value in seeing an Endodontist like Dr. Huynh – my root canal was done in a manner that a large part of my tooth structure was saved. I would recommend that folks should try their best to get a root canal treatment done by an Endodontist. 5/5 stars for the excellent practice run by Dr. Huynh.  – Rohit

Davisville Endodontics is comprised of three dentists who all speacialise in root canal treatment.  Dr. Karam Ashoo, who started practising endodontics in 2009, seems to generate a lot of buzz.

He obtained both his dental degree and endodontics training at the Columbia University in New York, USA. 

His patients appreciate that he takes the time to explain the treatments, options, and potential outcomes. Furthermore, he reportedly walks them through the step-by-step process, which lessens the negative anticipation and manages expectations.

His vast experience in root canal therapy, retreatment and surgery has made clients feel they are in capable hands. He also uses latest technology for diagnosis and treatment. 

Dr. Ashoo and the other endodontists have fixed previous canal procedures not done well by other clinics. In fact, Davisville Endodontics is known to take on complex cases that have not yet been resolved – and successfully fix them.

However, there were instances where clients found the staff´s manner of communication unprofessional. We hope that Dr. Ashoo and the team have already addressed these by connecting with the patients who brought up the issue. 

We like that appointments on short notice are usually accommodated, despite its limited operating days. This compensates for the fact that they’re closeed on weekends.

Pros

  • Uses the latest technology for diagnosis and treatment
  • Dr. Ashoo has vast experience in endodontic procedures
  • Walk clients through step-by-step process
  • Accommodates appointments on short notice

Cons

  • Some instances of an unprofessional manner of communication
  • Closed on weekends

Customer Reviews

Great dental experience

“Dr. Ashoo is so kind, patient, understanding and tells you from the beginning (of a root canal procedure) to the end on what he’s going to be doing next.  I found that everyone was very kind, courteous and helpful and most of all understanding.  I’m terrified of any kind of dental work and I felt comfortable in the hands of Dr. Ashoo.  He did a great job doing my root canal.  Thank you everyone for my great experience at Davisville Endodontics.  If any of my friends ask me what place is best to get a root canal, I will definitely recommend your office.” – Annie

Professional and accommodating

“I went into the dentist and was referred to Davisville Endodontics for a same day root canal. My experience was great. Dr. Karam Ashoo was extremely professional and accommodating for a nervous patient like myself. My process was painless. The clinic even phoned the following morning to follow-up on my recovery which was much appreciated. I would highly recommend Davisville Endodontics and Dr. Ashoo.” – Caitlin
