Outcome studies show endodontic (root canal) treatment is more successful when PERFORMED BY AN ENDODONTIST!*

Welcome to Temecula Valley Endodontics, a leading dental practice dedicated to the specialty of endodontics (root canals) for over 15 years! Dr. Gary Altenburg is a licensed and certified Endodontist (root canal expert). Endodontics is one of the nine dental specialty programs recognized by the American Dental Association, and similar to medical specialties, requires extra years of education. Dr. Altenburg is not only a licensed dentist, but has three additional years of ADA accredited residency and specialty endodontic training.


Not all root canals are created equal. All our root canal treatments are performed aseptically under a dental dam, recognized as the medical and legal standard of care. We use the most advanced root canal techniques available today, including low dose, high resolution 3-D digital imaging of your tooth and powerful endodontic microscopes with high-intensity illumination, so we can perform root canal treatment with ultimate precision and comfort. We utilize only in-house, state-of-the-art technology to ensure you are receiving the specialized care you deserve.


Located in Murrieta, California, our team realizes the importance of your dental health and strives to provide all your endodontic needs in a clean, comfortable and stress-free environment. Think of us as an extension of your primary care dentist's office. All of our treatment is supported by evidence-based dentistry.


Simply ask your primary care dentist for a referral to our office, or just call us directly to set up a consultation. We collaborate seemlessly with your dentist and, if needed, any of the other dental specialists in our area to optimize your treatment outcome and dental experience. We want you to know that we are an independent practice, immune to the conflicts of interest and interruptions of care that may arise in practices and clinics that employ "contract" or "traveling" endodontists. 


Thank you for placing your trust in Temecula Valley Endodontics to address your endodontic needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!
