Let’s talk about us
Our “Pac Endo”, Pacific Endodontics, was born in 1995 by Drs. Ali Etemad and Ted Pilot. From the beginning, we have been committed to the art and science of Endodontics and providing an excellent patient experience in a gentle and caring manner. Over the years our team has grown to four doctors and we are proud to introduce our team.
