Meet Dr. Andrei Ionescu
“It was the high-tech aspect of this field that initially lured me towards endodontics. Our profession has seen exciting leaps in technology and continues to advance at the cutting edge of dentistry. Our tools have become an extension of our clinical skills and allow us to provide advanced therapeutic care in the most efficient and comfortable manner. In practice, I strive to be open, empathetic and attune to every patient’s complex and individual needs. Above all, I believe successful treatment not only requires refined clinical skills, but also forming solid relationships based on trust and respect.”
