Trident Endo Closes out the Year in Celebration of Growth and Goodwill

BOWIE, MarylandThe ever-growing team at Trident Endo championed by endodontic leaders, Drs. Ronald Taylor and Adam Orgel, are celebrating an incredible year of expansion, innovation, and community stewardship.

“The strides made by our team this year have exceeded my highest hopes and expectations, which makes looking ahead to 2024 all the more exciting and inspiring. I cannot wait to see where we go from here and feel confident that we have the talent and drive to continue pushing our limits and testing the bounds of what we can do for our company and community.”

This year, Trident Endo expanded its number of affiliated endodontic practices to 13, locations including Bay Endodontics, Endodontic Specialists, DC Endodontic Center, RCT Endodontics, Painless Root Canal Specialists, Total Endodontics, and Springfield Endodontics. We further expanded our footprint in Pennsylvania, specifically in Wayne and Phoenixville counties.

We are proud to have also added four accomplished endodontists under the Trident Endo umbrella this year, which has made it possible for us to serve over 17,000 patients as a group. If you missed our blog post announcements and website updates, we invite you to join us now in welcoming, Dr. Sunia Lessing to RCT Endodontics, Dr. Abasin Safi to Painless Root Canal Specialists, Dr. Claudia Garces to Total Endodontics South Orange, and Dr. Jaclyn Cruz at Endodontic Specialists.

Our Human Resources team is delighted to report that we have had a total of 12 internal promotions this year, with five employees elevated twice! This exceptional track record underscores Trident Endo’s commitment to fostering career growth and providing employees with opportunities for advancement.

With all this growth and forward momentum, we needed to add managerial and support staff. To that end, we hired additional team members, including dental assistants, front desk leads, office managers and management support.

Speaking of dental assistants, for the first time ever, we recognized an Employee of the Year and are thrilled to share that Evelyn Rivera, Lead Dental Assistant at Total Endodontics, is our inaugural recipient. Described by colleagues as “amazing, resourceful, and knowledgeable,” we are honored to celebrate Evelyn’s remarkable commitment and exceptional work ethic.

A celebration of our collective wins wouldn’t be complete without shouting out Dr. Alexis Herring’s Top Dentist award and feature in What’s Up Media, where she was recognized for being “adept at treating patients of all ages with care and expertise.”

On top of that, Dr. Angela Noguera of DC Endodontics Center was named Top Doctor in the Washington, D.C. area, Dr. Ronald Taylor of RCT Endodontics also won the 2023 Washingtonian Top Doc award, and Dr. Bruce Terry of Endodontic Specialists won the Main Line Today and earned the distinction of Philadelphia Magazine’s Top Dentist for 2023.

Two of our other affiliates realized significant growth: Total Endo Englewood, led by top-rated endodontist Dr. Gyu Park, and Total Endo South Orange, with Essex County’s top-rated endodontist, Dr. Janatha “Jonny” Withanachchi at its helm, expanded from offering part-time to full-time availability, a testament to both teams commitment to outreach, education, and community empowerment.

Running parallel to our affiliate growth, Trident Endo has hosted continuing education events, including, last month’s “Endodontic Case Difficulty Assessment & Referral: Do the Root Canal Treatment or Refer to an Endodontist,” hosted by Dr. Jonny to rave reviews.

Additionally, we conducted four in-person Continuing Education courses around DC, MD, and NJ, with more than 150 attendees at these events.

Dr. Adam Orgel scheduled time in October to teach “Endodontic Diagnosis and Treatment Planning,” which offered attendees invaluable information.

On April 13th, Dr. Awadi offered a 2-credit CE course on Advances in Endodontics, hosted at the Copper Canyon Grill during which attendees learned how new advances in endodontics, including CBCT, imaging, instruments, and irrigation techniques are changing the game!

Two weeks later, on April 27th, cybersecurity took center stage as part of our healthcare cybersecurity 2 credit CE Course, with industry expert, Black Talon Security.

In February, Drs. Taylor and Orgel offered an amazing opportunity to upcoming endodontic graduates — the chance to ask questions and learn from them, free of charge. Topics covered included how to evaluate DSO options, strategies to establish a blueprint for creating a career path, and how joining a DSO while owning your own practice provides mentorship and career development benefits.

As in years past, our Save-a-Smile event made an impact on our community by providing $52,472.50 in donated professional dental services, totaling 24 root canals completed on 21 patients. To date, our annual initiative has contributed more than $217,000 in specialized endodontic treatments to those in need in our communities.

Thank you all for your tireless efforts and dedicated expertise. Cheers to another year working together to empower our growth and goodwill!
