have a Dental Emergency? Go to Endodontist First,

Not Emergency Room or Urgent Care.

If you have an appointment coming up and you have a runny nose, sore throat, cough, fever, or respiratory problems…



In light of COVID-19 we will be implementing a few changes in our office in an effort to keep our patients and community safe. We know that these can be scary times and we are taking all necessary precautions and following all CDC guidelines.  

If you are sick, are concerned you might be sick, or showing any COVID symptoms, please cancel your appointment.  You will not be penalized in any way for the cancellation, even at the last moment.

  1. In an effort to practice social distancing, we ask that you call the office when you arrive but remain in your car. We will check you in and then come out to get you when we are ready for your appointment. Only the patient, and in necessary cases, with a legal guardian are allowed in the building.  When you enter the building, please be wearing your own face mask and we will have you wash your hands immediately and use the Listerine.
  2. All check-in iPads will have disposable covers. Counter tops, door handles, and surfaces will be disinfected with increased frequency.  We would really appreciate patients using the online patient portal to fill out paperwork prior to their appointment.
  3. In an effort to screen illness, we will be taking patients’ temperature before treatment. We please ask for all patients and guardians to wear a mask when entering the building.

If you have any questions at all about your upcoming appointment please do not hesitate to call our office. We feel confident we are providing a safe environment for patient treatment and will keep you updated with any changes necessary.  Thank you so much for your understanding and help in keeping this a safe environment.

We are here to serve all your endodontic needs with two locations, Fayetteville and Bentonville!

Visiting a dentist regularly is key in having good oral health.  If your dentist told you that you needed to see an endodontist, I’m sure the fear of the unknown would take over.  There are several reasons why you may be sent to one:

It could be tooth pain, trauma to the mouth, increased sensitivity to hot or cold or oral/facial swelling.  Endodontic therapy, most commonly known as a root canal, is work done “inside” the tooth.  Root canals don’t cause pain, they RELIEVE pain!  

There are many advantages in keeping your natural teeth including efficient chewing, normal biting force and sensation, natural appearance, and protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain.  There could be several reasons why your dentist wants you to come to an endodontist including experience, efficiency, availability and advanced technology. 

That is exactly what Behrents Endodontic Specialists has to offer, and we like to say that we are here to save lives, one tooth at a time!
