About

Before opening his practice, Lexington Endodontics LLC in 2012, Dr. Sarkis practiced as an endodontist in Brookline and the North Shore for seven years. Lexington Endodontics is a state of the art endodontic practice where Dr. Sarkis combines cutting edge technology with sound and proven concepts and techniques to treat endodontic disease.

Dr. Sarkis has recently been promoted to associate professor in the Department of Post Graduate Endodontics at Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine and is a previous director of the advanced education program. He teaches current concepts in Endodontics, literature review seminars and oversees patient care by the residents. He regularly provides continuing education courses and lectures on several clinical topics related to endodontic pathology and infection, diagnosis, and treatment. His area of clinical expertise is the use of the surgical operating microscope, microendodontics, microsurgery, apicoectomy (treating dental cysts) and other surgical endodontics, repair or retreatment of failing root canals, endo-perio lesions (combination of gums and root canal diseases) root resorption, and dental trauma.

Dr. Sarkis received his DMD at Boston University School of Dental Medicine as well as his Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Endodontics and Master of Science in Dentistry in Endodontics. Before specializing in Endodontics in the United States, Dr. Sarkis pursued post graduate education in Paris (Radiology, Periodontology) and Beirut (Minor Oral Surgery) where he also received his first dental degree from Saint Joseph University in 1994.

What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

Our patients are referred by their general dentist or specialist or by word of mouth. In recent years patients are choosing our office over others' and call us directly. A new patient without a referral will require an evaluation appointment and will be booked for treatment as needed. 

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

Root canal therapy is an important step in restoring a diseased tooth back to function. It is the foundation of a natural and healthy dentition. My advice to patients needing a root canal procedure or wishing to save their tooth is to seek an endodontist they feel comfortable with. The right specialist for you might be close by or a little further away than expected, however the trip is worth it, and having this procedure done right the first time is very important. Our practice strives to be the right place for your endodontic care.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

Being detail oriented and the ability to extend the life of the natural tooth using: knowledge, technique and technology is very compelling to me. Alleviating pain and putting people at ease while treating and preventing infection that could become life threatening, combined with my 20 years of commitment to teaching at Boston University is meaningful work to me.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

All treatments I provide ultimately lead to extending the lifespan of a diseased tooth. It is very exciting and rewarding to see my patients few years later as they express their gratitude for the care they received at Lexington Endodontics.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

It was from a patient who was about to lose her front tooth due to extensive supporting bone loss. After examination and appropriate surgical treatment she was able to keep her natural tooth. I always looked forward to see her enthusiasm and gratefulness when she came in for the multiple appointments needed to monitor the complex healing process.

What makes your practice stand apart?

Lexington Endodontics is carefully designed and managed with one main goal in mind. Our goal is simply to attend to our patients needs in a caring manner. We perform simple to complex procedures using the most advanced technology and proven techniques, our practice was the first in the Middlesex district to combine microscopy and 3D imaging to our daily practice. The training Dr. Sarkis acquired over many years combined with over 20 years of teaching experience positions him at the forefront of his specialty. He is continuously involved with the advancement of dentistry by leading and contributing to study clubs, dental associations and teaching at Boston University. At Lexington Endodontics we would like our patient to leave the office feeling that they went to the right place and had a very good experience. As a result of our continuous effort to provide a consistent level of excellent quality care Dr. Sarkis has been trusted by many dentists and colleagues with treating their family members and friends, and for the third consecutive year has been voted by peers as one of the best dentists in Massachusetts based on the Boston Magazine survey.

What should patients know about your pricing?

Our procedures are fairly priced for the high quality work and outcome patients expect from the best endodontists.

How many years have you been in business?

My experience in dentistry started in 1989 as a first year dental student. I founded Lexington Endodontics in 2012.

What do clients have to say about you?

"Root Canal on Bicuspid. I have been in Dental Sales for 37 years with 11 years selling Endodontic products. This gave me the opportunity to know scores of endodontist , visit their offices, attend courses and work with the residents in the three dental schools in Boston.

Since I know the profession, I can say that Dr Sarkis is top drawer .. in communication, and most of all ability.

I live 35 miles from his office and would gladly make the trip to his office vs going to a local office

About Front Desk: 5 star .. I was promptly given a cheerful greeting upon entering the office .. and received a call the next morning asking how I felt."

 

" I was impressed with the following: cutting edge technology used; sophisticated diagnostic tools and treatment skills; friendly manner; pleasant office with beautiful slide shows and relaxing music presented; pleasant, friendly staff; follow-up calls the day after the surgery. I tried to find something missing/negative there, but I could not find anything at all! I was totally satisfied, which I have never experienced at any dental offices in my entire life!Keep up with your exceptional works! Thanks for such a wonderful life experience."

 

" I am immensely grateful to and impressed by Dr. Sarkis and his staff. I needed emergency treatment before traveling out of town; I called in the evening, he made every effort to get back to me that evening and I was treated the next morning. After a very careful and knowledgeable examination, he concluded that a root canal was not needed; minor surgery and antibiotics was enough. Dr. Sarkis explained everything in detail and was very concerned to make the treatment as painless as possible. He prescribed painkillers to take home. Within less than 24 hours I was completely comfortable and able to fly out of town--and needed only occasional low dose ibuprofen to be completely pain free. Office service was friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. I could not ask for more.

About Front Desk: Five stars. Prompt, very knowledgeable, very friendly, Flexible in scheduling, helped with paperwork and handled all insurance work."
