Pioneering a new culture of dentistry. Pioneers don’t blaze a trail because they can, they do it because they must. They honor their long-held desires to change their lives for the better, leaving behind a blue print for the next generation to find. Once we realize what we are capable of, we must find a way to unlock and realize that potential. Our group philosophy is simple. Our want to pioneer a new culture in dentistry starts with bringing good people into our group. It is not enough to simply put our like-minds in the same room. We are committed to providing the ultimate freedom, individuality, to those who want to do the right thing for the patient, and for each other. We empower those with the right goal in mind, who would otherwise go it alone, by providing them with a strong group of individuals for focus and support. We use proven methods in administration that we have learned over a decade’s time, paired with growth initiatives that will guide us to where we are going, to pioneer a future in dentistry that we all want to be a part of.

Cornerstone Dental Specialties set out over 22 years ago to answer these questions; “How do we deliver Endodontic services through a unique platform that is simple, better, and faster? How can a Practice serve its associates, its referrals, and most important, their mutual patients more effectively?” The answer was combining state of the art technology, collaborative treatment planning methods, improved communication, and state of the art equipment, along with algorithms honed by dozens of talented Endodontists over 100’s of thousands of cases into a Mobile Platform. Cornerstone Dental Specialties brings the Surgical Dental Specialist to the General Dentists office. This allows the patient the comfort of going to a location they know and interact with staff they already trust. To continue with “Old” methods that left many referrals feeling out of the loop, and left patients falling into “Black Holes” shuffling back and forth from Referral to Endodontist back to Referral, in a seemly endless loop, is just not efficient in this modern day. Currently Cornerstone Dental Specialties services over 200 locations in 4 states; California, Texas, Colorado, and Minnesota. With 28 Endodontists and support staff, Cornerstone currently performs over 40,000 Root Canal Treatments a year. We provide everything the Endodontist needs to create great clinical outcomes; high quality instruments, files, products and Global Microscopes. We also utilize Nomad digital X-ray technology to enhance the patient experience and increase efficiency. Our unique business model allows DSO’s and private practitioners the ability to capture revenue, while keeping their patients inside their practice. Allowing for greater continuity of care and a massive increase in communication between clinicians.
