Dr. Axx has been helping Arizonans maintain their smiles with root canal and endodontic treatment since 2007 and opened Arcadia Endodontics in the Arcadia neighborhood three years ago. A native New Yorker, Dr. Axx received his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the State University of New York at Buffalo and completed two years of General Practice Residency at North Shore University Hospital in Long Island, New York. After developing a passion for Endodontics in residency, he moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he received his Certificate in Endodontics from Temple University — one of the premier endodontic programs in the country.
He is currently Lead Endodontic Faculty at the Brighter Way Dental Clinic, where he instructs dental students from A.T. Still University School of Dental and Oral Health. Dr. Axx became a Board-Certified Endodontist in 2010 and is proud to practice according to high standards set by the American Board of Endodontics. He has been a PHOENIX magazine Top Dentist every year since 2016 and is humbled to be recognized for this honor.
Dr. Axx creates a spa-like atmosphere at Arcadia Endodontics complete with massaging treatment chairs, essential oils, soothing music and comfortable blankets to help transform a potentially uneasy event into a very “comfort-centric” experience for his patients. For patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety, he is licensed to perform treatment using modern sedation procedures. Additionally, he performs root canal treatment, retreatment of existing root canal treatment, tooth extraction and surgical placement of dental implants.
Our mission at Arcadia Endodontics is to deliver state-of-the-art, precision quality endodontic care and treat all patients with respect and compassion. For these reasons, Dr. Axx is one of the few certified providers of root canal treatment using the incredible GentleWave System in the Valley. This system is a remarkable advancement in endodontic treatment outcomes. Arcadia Endodontics is always accepting new patients and we look forward to helping you create a healthy smile!
