These technologies combined with skilled dentistry ensure our patients receive a more accurate diagnosis, are more comfortable during treatment, and get better care!

About the Waterlase Technology

Waterlase uses light, air, and water to form a powerful beam that endodontists use for various treatments. This energy can be harnessed to clean teeth better than traditional methods.

The Waterlase has the ability to remove gum tissue and bone with its combination of light, air, and water. Lasers revolutionized surgical procedures like LASIK, wrinkle removal, and more. Waterlase applies the technology to the needs of dentists and their patients.  Dr. Corr became a Waterlase specialist after recognizing its ability to create better patient experiences and outcomes.

About Dr. Corr’s Commitment to Innovation and Education

Dr. Corr values education. He was part of the Honors College at Arizona State University, where he earned a degree in Psychology. Next, he attended dental school at Loma Linda University in southern California.

After completing dental school, Dr. Corr spent a year in an advanced general dentistry program as an army officer at Fort Carson, then served three years treating soldiers at home and abroad.

Endodontists complete an additional two-year program beyond their general dentistry degree. He returned to Loma Linda University for this specialized program.

After completing his endodontics training, Dr. Corr returned home to Colorado Springs, where he worked to establish Apex Endodontics as a practice providing the highest possible level of endodontic care.

Due to his commitment to research and innovation, Dr. Corr published scientific articles in the Journal of Endodontics and has also authored textbook chapters covering endodontic techniques.

As a former faculty member of CU School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Corr often lectures locally and nationally. He is a founder of Colorado Roots, a local dental educational society providing a venue for collaborative learning and continuing education for dentists.

Dr. Corr has deep roots in the Colorado Springs community. Outside of work, Dr. Corr enjoys spending time with his wife and high-school sweetheart Susie and their children Sydney and Matthew.

Why Colorado Springs Residents Prefer Apex Endodontics

Your endodontic experts at Apex Endodontics treat each patient as a unique individual. The teeth and the root canal system have highly complex and variable anatomy. A skilled endodontist cannot assume that each patient has an “average” anatomy.

Also, dental pain can come from many different sources. Our team assesses whether a root canal or a different treatment option is more appropriate for you. We take the time to assess your options and to talk you through the process.

If your dentist suggests that you may need root canal treatment, we are here to provide you with the best care available at Apex Endodontics.
