Sharing resources, news and event information is focus for David Landwehr, D.D.S., M.S.
MADISON, WI – February 11, 2016 – David Landwehr, D.D.S., M.S., today announced the launch of a new online resource to support his ongoing work as a leading practitioner, educator and speaker in the field of endodontics, also known as root canal treatment. A new website at www.obtr8.com includes industry news, articles and case examples, a calendar of Dr. Landwehr’s educational events and more. The website’s name is a play on the word “obturate,” meaning to completely fill a root canal.
“From articles and case studies to continuing education seminars and events, everything we do aims to advance education in endodontics,” says Dr. Landwehr. “I’m as excited to run a local endodontic study club for general dentists as I am to lecture at leading national events focused specifically on root canal treatment.”
Dr. Landwehr’s work has positioned him at the forefront of modern endodontic treatment. He has presented educational sessions and contributed content to leading organizations and publications including Dentistry Today, Dentistry IQ, the American Association of Endodontics, the College of Diplomates (American Board of Endodontists), the Greater New York Dental Meeting, the Chicago Dental Society, and dental schools at dozens of major universities. A list of previous and upcoming engagements can be found on the event calendar at http://obtr8.com/events/.
Dr. Landwehr studied as an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and went on to earn his D.D.S. at the University of Minnesota. From there, he earned an M.S. degree and certificate in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology at The Ohio State University followed by specialty training in Endodontics at the University of Michigan.
Since returning to his native Wisconsin in 1999, Dr. Landwehr has provided exemplary care to patients in a private practice setting, most recently at Capital Endodontics.
