Endodontics in the United States has been taught as a dental specialty for many years, but not in Europe. I therefore chose to leave my Practice in Germany for three years to attend Boston University (renowned for this speciality), to study for a postgraduate degree in Endodontics under Dr Herbert Schilder, one of the leading endodontists in the world. I thereby became the first US-trained endodontist working in Germany.

Dr. Pontius has once again been named as a top dentist by Focus Magazine

We are pleased to be able to announce that Dr. Pontius has also been included in the 2017 FOCUS list of top medical consultants, in the specialist area of endodontics. FOCUS regularly publishes comparisons of clinics and clinicians, based on surveys carried out jointly with specialist medical associations and scientific journals, as well as recommendations from patient organisations, self-help groups, clinical medical directors, consultants and doctors.
