As a Root Canal Specialist, Dr. Grove is aware that mercury vapor and dental infections can have a negative impact on overall health. Because of this concern, we focus on patient education and strive to treat root canal infections as safely as possible. When necessary, we utilize mercury amalgam removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD).
Holistic dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a healthy Root Canal treatment options.

Normally patients requiring Root Canal Treatment are referred to our office by their general dentist. This means that dentist is reasonably sure that a tooth will require Root Canal Treatment. But a patient could also be referred when it is uncertain as to whether or not Endodontic treatment is required.
We believe this is the most effective way to approach it. However, if you live out of the area you may still want our opinion about the status of a tooth, or teeth. We will still schedule you but we highly recommend you first consult with a dentist in your area.
We suggest this because it is nearly impossible for a patient to accurately make any diagnosis about the need for Root Canal Treatment. It could be entirely possible that a tooth may not need a Root Canal and thus the Pre-Screening will have saved you a lot of travel, time, and expense.

About Dr. Grove
My wife, Faith and I both have deep Californian roots. We met in San Francisco in 1988 and were married in 1992. After exploring the country, living in San Diego for 3 years, rural Alaska for 5 years and Westchester County, New York (just outside of Manhattan) for 6 years, we decided we wanted to plant our roots back in northern California, near family, surrounded by the beauty of wine country and in an area where we could to take advantage of a more outdoors-oriented lifestyle.
It has been my aim to create an Endontics practice which reflects the pleasant and relaxed local environment and I take pride in my Santa Rosa office. Quality of life is very important to us. In my time off I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, skiing and playing tennis. Click Here to learn more about Dr. Grove/

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Grove personally and over the years he has preformed root canal treatment on my teeth. So I speak from experience when I say that he is not only a great person but I also have the highest regard for his skill and his approach to mercury safe Endodontics. He belongs to my Mercury Safe dental Association and is committed to taking a holistic, whole-body approach to dental treatment while also promoting patient education.
His integrated approach to Endodontics includes the understanding that you cannot be healthy without good oral health and he takes this into consideration when planning his patients dental treatment.
Dr. Grove is the only holistic, mercury safe, Endodontist that I know of in California and I consider him to be a caring, highly trained, and experienced Endodontist. His commitment to healthy dentistry, his ongoing dedication to continuing education, and his concern for his patients health and well being, makes him ideally suited to treat teeth needing root canals and when necessary, to safely remove mercury amalgam fillings.
Dr. Grove is a charter member of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD) and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a mercury free, holistic Root Canal Specialist. When you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and say hello to him from me. Thanks!
