Dr. Gamboa-Ruiz says: “I am passionate about my profession, clinically and academically. Teaching endodontics has represented an important pillar in my career. It is rewarding not only to have the ability to take patients out of pain, but also to teach and train future dentists and endodontists. Endodontics is the perfect combination of biology, art, and technology. It is fascinating to provide treatment to those in pain, while creating a unique piece of art, using the latest technology”.
