Tyson Curtis. D.D.S
Dr. Curtis grew up in Southern California and practiced as a general dentist for four years before pursuing his passion for endodontics. After receiving extensive training and earning his endodontic specialist certificate at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, he returned to Southern California to practice. The aspects of endodontics he enjoys most are being able to help people out of pain and enabling them to retain their natural teeth.
