Endodontist with Onalaska practice awarded board certification

Jan 6, 2011

Derek Nordeen, D.D.S. of La Crosse, recently earned his certification from the American Board of Endodontics. Nordeen is an endodontist in private practice with Endodontic Specialists of La Crosse in Onalaska. Becoming a board-certified diplomate is the highest status an endodontist can achieve.

In order to obtain diplomate status, Nordeen successfully completed a rigorous three-part examination that included a review of his education, knowledge, skills and ability to apply new research and advances to the practice of endodontics, as well as his commitment to providing the highest quality of patient care. The American Board of Endodontics is the only certifying board for the specialty of endodontics and is one of the nine specialty boards recognized by the American Dental Association.
Nordeen is a 1990 graduate of Logan High School in La Crosse. He received his D.D.S. from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry in 1998 and earned his certificate in endodontics from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in 2001. Immediately after graduation, Nordeen joined Dr. Eva Dahl at Endodontic Specialists.

An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in saving teeth. They have an additional two to three years of educational training and advanced expertise in comfortably treating even the most complex endodontic procedures, including root canal treatment and endodontic surgery.

Nordeen has several publications and is president of the La Crosse District Dental Society as well as a member of the Wisconsin Dental Association and the American Dental Association. He lives in La Crosse with his wife, Julie, and son, Will.

He enjoys snowboarding, surfing and mountain biking.
