What is an Endodontist?
Dr. Austyn C. Grissom
Board Certified Endodontist
Located in Daphne, Alabama
While all endodontists are dentists, less than 3% of dentists are endodontists. Just like a doctor in any other field, endodontists are specialists because they’ve completed an additional two or more years of training beyond dental school. Their additional training focuses on diagnosing tooth pain and performing root canal treatment and other procedures relating to the interior of the tooth.
Dr. Austyn C. Grissom completed his dental training at the University of Alabama School of Dentistry in Birmingham, Alabama. After practicing for several years as a general dentist, he was accepted to the world-renowned University of Texas Health Sciences Center in Houston, Texas where he completed a rigorous 26 month Advanced Education program in endodontics.
In addition to the years he has spent in advanced training, Dr. Grissom is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. Less than 25% of endodontists in the nation have completed this rigorous three-step process to achieve board certification. Dr. Grissom is currently the only board certified endodontist in Baldwin County, and is one of five board certified endodontists in the state of Alabama.
