Essential Endodontics
A Leader in Restorative Dentistry

Root Canals | Emergency Dentistry


At Essential Endodontics, we strive to provide the best endodontic care to patients of all ages.  When you visit our office, you will find a friendly and inviting atmosphere.   Our endodontist, Dr. Heather Adu-Sarkodie has many years of experience in dental research, dental education and dental treatment.  She has the knowledge and skill to provide the most up-to-date care available. Our staff, Ms. Kathy Tuttle,  Ms. Debi Shea, and Ms. Catherine Reid will provide friendly competent assistance when making the appointment, during the visit, and follow-up care.

We have surgical microscopes in our office.  These enhance illumination and magnification in order to help treat even the most difficult cases.

Also, we have a CT scanner which allows us to take 3-D images and see teeth from different angles.  We are thus able to see anatomy that regular 2-D x-rays do not show.  For example missed canals in failed root canals, and bone fractures in trauma.


Mission Statement
Essential Endodontics is a dental specialty practice dedicated to the best root canal option possible within the full mouth treatment plan designed by the general dentist. 

While our main purpose is to use our resources and experience to  relieve the patient's pain and to restore tooth health, we also recommend appropriate treatment options, educate the patient about pulpal and gum diseases, and discuss preventive techniques, thus maximizing the long-term prognosis of the entire dentition.

We are proud members of the American Association of Endodontists, the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association and the Lee County Dental Association.

Contact our endodontics office in Fort Myers, Florida,
for root canals and emergency dentistry.

COVID-19 (Corona Virus) Update

Your health and well-being are our highest priority. At all times, we take the highest level of precautions to prevent the spread of infection, including the new coronavirus. You can learn more about these protocols, as well as how you can help keep yourself and those around you healthy, from the American Dental Association’s website.  

The Florida Governor has mandated the prohibition of any medically unnecessary, non-urgent or non-emergency procedure or surgery in the state of Florida. If you are healthy, and have a dental emergency, we will see you.  However, if you have no pain and/or no swelling, we ask that you defer making appointments until after the ban is lifted. 

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or if you or those you are in close contact with have been exposed to the new coronavirus, contact our office and we will assist you with rescheduling your appointment for a later date to make sure you are free of COVID-19 symptoms. There will be no cancellation or rescheduling fees during this time.

If you or someone you are in close contact with have recently traveled to a country with outbreaks of COVID-19 or if you have been exposed to someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19 or quarantined as a precaution, wait 14 days before making an appointment to make sure you are free of COVID-19 symptoms.

We will continue to closely monitor updates from the CDC, the ADA, the World Health Organization and our state officials. In the case of new information, we will keep you informed of any changes to our procedures or appointments.

We ask you to use your best judgement and caution surrounding upcoming appointments and to call us if you have any questions about your appointment or oral health needs. We also encourage you to follow prevention and safety guidelines established by the CDC.

Thank you  to all our patients who refer us to friends, family,  co-workers, neighbors, and people around town.  It is such a compliment to me and my staff when knowing you have a choice, you choose to come to us for kind, gentle treatment.

Heather Adu-Sarkodie, DDS, PhD
