The Pinnacle of Care

State-of-the-Art Pinnacle Endodontics Saves Teeth

Pinnacle Endodontics has been saving teeth in Scripps Ranch since 2010. Dr. Anthony John shared, “My vision and dream was to create a state-of-the-art endodontic office where I could provide the highest quality care to my community. After working in numerous settings in both military and private offices, I gained the knowledge to achieve this.” Dr. John served as division officer on board the CVN-75 USS Harry S. Truman, then served at the National Naval Medical Center while earning his M.S. from The George Washington University. His tour at Camp Pendleton and Miramar Marine Corps Air Station led him to fall in love with San Diego.

Pinnacle Endodontics provides a wide range of services, including diagnosis of tooth pain, root canals, retreatment of defective endodontic procedures, and treatment of sports-related trauma. Dr. John and his team also provide internal bleaching of discolored teeth and regenerative endodontics for young permanent teeth.

The state-of-the-art technology sets Pinnacle Endodontics apart and allows the team to diagnose conditions that might be untreated through less sophisticated tools. Dr. John explained, “We save teeth that would normally have to be removed without the benefit of 3D/CBCT imaging and microscope enhanced dental specialty care.” Dr. John places a high value on continuing education, and is involved with numerous professional dental and endodontic associations.


Patients at Pinnacle Endodontics range in age and background. “I work closely with many local dentists who refer their patients to me,” said Dr. John. “I appreciate the confidence they place in our office. We also have many patients come to us by word of mouth through a friend or family member.” Patients appreciate the convenient location, the calm, relaxing environment, and the friendly staff. Dr. John strives to ensure a positive experience through the end of the visit. “The highlight of a patient’s visit is usually how delighted they are when they realize the procedure was completely pain-free,” said Dr. John. “Many people think of pain when they think of having a root canal, and this is not the case at all.”

“My regular dentist referred me to this expert,” said Arthur P., a Pinnacle Endodontics patient. “I was an ordinary patient of ordinary means but Dr. John’s team took care of me as if I was the most important person on earth.”
