Bookline Endodontics History


Established in 1959, purchased 2009.

North Shore Endodontics acquired Brookline Endodontics in 2009 and is now known as North Shore & Brookline Endodontics (NSBENDO). We are very proud to have Brookline Endodontics as part of our endodontic specialty group, as it was here that Dr. Herbert Schilder first brought his ideas for modern endodontic treatment to his patients. Dr. Schilder joined the teaching staff at Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine in 1958, where he introduced the “Schilder Technique” to dentistry. Shortly after, in 1959, he started his own specialty practice and continued into the 21st century, with Dr. Joe Williams and Dr. Sydell Shaw.

Many of our endodontists studied under Dr. Schilder at B.U., where several also later served as faculty members. Endodontists and patients all over the world have benefitted from Dr. Schilder’s teachings and modern concepts, which resulted in a simpler, more effective and painless method of saving natural teeth from extraction. At North Shore & Brookline Endodontics, we reflect the same commitment to exacting standards of care that were taught and practiced by Dr. Schilder in his practice years ago.

For over 50 years, our reputation for clinical skill and professionalism has led trusted local dentists to refer their patients to our practice. We work in an environment that exceeds the highest standards of sterilization and cleanliness, and continuously incorporate significant improvements in endodontic technology. These improvements, coupled with our enduring commitment to clinical excellence and personalized patient care, have enabled our endodontists to provide better and more efficient treatment.
