Why I Chose to Become an Endodontist A CHALLENGING, REWARDING PROFESSION

for them, but I’m just the opposite. I guess you could say that endodontics and I are a perfect match. Even more invigorating than the research, though, is the chance to help people suffering from pain and a lack of confidence in their smiles. Every procedure is different, but the goal is always to provide a

Many patients in Rockingham County have to travel 30–40 miles to receive specialized dental care. The distance creates a logistical problem, often barring people from receiving treatments they can benefit from. Last year, we added Dr. Gerard R. Nazziola to our team, giving us an in-house periodontist. This year, we’re happy to announce the arrival of a new specialist: board-certified endodontist Dr. Elizabeth Applebaum. Dr. Applebaum comes to us with the highest qualifications imaginable. She holds degrees from Stanford, Harvard, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She’s also an adjunct professor of endodontics at UNC and the Wake Forest School of Medicine. We are honored and privileged to have her in our office one day per week. Below you’ll find an introduction from Dr. Applebaum. I can’t wait for you to meet her. Full disclosure — I’m a research nerd. I think that’s one of the main reasons that endodontics appeals to me. I love to work in a field that is constantly evolving and is packed with peer-reviewed literature on the most effective treatment methods. Some people may regard terms like “evidence-based” and “research- intensive” as signs that the job is not

patient with results they’ll want to show off to friends and family. It’s challenging and rewarding to develop a course of action that works for patients. As a result, I never have a dull moment while working. I’ve always loved treating the people of Rockingham County, so when the opportunity arose to join the team at Caring Modern Dentistry, I jumped at it. I met Dr. Adams in the most coincidental of circumstances. His daughter happens to be in the same Girl Scout troop as my daughters. I’m the troop leader of that group, so it was awesome to hear there was another daughter of a dental professional among us. After talking to Dr. Adams, I was incredibly grateful for the chance to set up shop in Reidsville one day per week. His practice is what all dental offices aspire to be: a place where patients come first.

Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my husband, Dr. Matt Applebaum, and my two daughters, Samantha and Elliot. Yes, in case you’re wondering, my husband is also a dentist — you can imagine how many times the girls have heard about the importance of brushing and flossing. I look forward to getting to know Dr. Adams’ patients and staff in the coming year. I’m thrilled to be a part of the team and want to thank everyone for welcoming me so warmly. If I happen to be in the office during your next appointment, I hope you’ll stop in and say hello. -Dr. Elizabeth Applebaum
