Here at MMS Endodontics, we’re all about providing the best in patient care. To help achieve that, it’s our goal to bring together the best team— a team that reflects our values as care providers. That’s why we’re excited to announce the latest addition to the MMS team: Dr. Sean Horan. We’ll let him take it from here and let him tell you a little about himself. Welcome to the team!

–The MMS Team

By the time you read this, I will have been on the team for only a few weeks. I recently completed my endodontic training. After practicing as a dentist for two years, I discovered I had a passion for endodontics. So, I made the decision to further my education and really focus on the endodontic specialty. As much as I love working in dentistry as a general dentist, the call of endodontics was just too great. While I was working as a dentist, I routinely found the endodontic cases the most fascinating. There was something about those cases that captured my imagination. A lot of it came down to the challenge associated with it, but there was more to it. Not only do you have to have a deeper understanding of the anatomy of teeth, the jaw, and the surrounding tissue, you have to have an understanding of how they all work together. When a tooth becomes damaged, for instance, it can inflame the surrounding tissue. This can lead to infection, severe pain, and damage the overall health of a person. There is also a lot to be said about being able to provide patients with a unique service, that being the relief of pain and the preservation of teeth. While general dentistry has a big focus on prevention, in endodontics, it’s very reactionary.

than a traditional dental office, which includes the pace and the scope of the work as well.

All these things were a draw for me. I’m excited for the weeks and months ahead. The team here at MMS has been great! The docs have brought together an amazing team and developed an equally amazing set of core values — core values which I very much admire and identify with. A little more about me. I’m from the Wheeling area, about an hour north, and my wife is from Morgantown. I absolutely love the area and I’m glad I found a position with a great office that allowed me to stick around. My wife and I also love spending time outdoors, especially with our dog. In my spare time, I like to play soccer or golf. As long as I’m staying active, I’m happy! Of course, if I’m not playing, then I like to attend West Virginia Mountaineers games. Going forward, I’m thrilled to get my endodontic career underway. I’m happy to be part of such a great team and part of a great community. Here’s to that next great adventure.

We go to work after an injury or infection. We may have to investigate the source of the pain. These aspects make the work environment different
