Dr. Charles Herbert
Dr. Charles Herbert of Endodontics, P.A. in Annapolis gets to the “root of the problem” quickly without the “ouch!” This top dentist specializes in non-surgical and surgical root canal treatments.
Dr. Herbert’s endodontic (treatment inside the tooth) procedures treat cracked teeth, traumatic injuries involving dislodged, or avulsed teeth, and provide much-needed relief with non-surgical root canals or surgery. Generally, a root canal is all that is needed to save teeth with injured pulp from extraction. Occasionally, endodontic surgery is performed to locate fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays, but still manifest a great deal of pain.
“When someone comes in with the worst pain of their life and leaves pain-free, it really makes my day. Seeing actual radiographic healing secondary to a successful root canal procedure never gets old. It’s amazing how well the body can heal and regenerate once a tooth is cleaned!”
–Dr. Charles Herbert

2. FAVORITE SPORTS TEAMHaving grown up on Long Island, I’m a long suffering Mets fan. Hopefully, their amazing pitching staff can re-create a little of that ‘86 World Series magic – fingers crossed!
