In Reply to: Is it the norm now for a general dentist to refer a patient posted by to an endodontist for a root canal? SM on Mon, Mar 06 2023 at 10:13 AM CST:

: Needed a root canal.

Dentist referred us to "dental specialists" Inc. (It's part of the practice's name.)

Had to wait a while for an appointment, and in the meantime part of the tooth broke off.

After yet another x-ray and $200 consultation, it turns out that the endodontist now, because the tooth broke, had to write a referral for an oral surgeon. "We don't do that here."
