About the Author:
A.S. Mireku is an endodontist by profession. An endodontist is a specialized dentist that focuses on the treatment of factors affecting the roots of teeth and the health inside of teeth. When teeth have an injury involving the internal structures (ex. a cavity, a trauma, a natural defect, etc.), an endodontist aims to repair the injury. The endodontist’s goal, along with your general dentist, is to restore the tooth and help you maintain and keep that tooth whenever possible, for as long as possible.
A.S. Mireku received her general dental education at the University of Michigan and her endodontic specialty education at the University of Maryland. She aims to use her dental expertise to increase dental awareness and to promote the health and maintenance of teeth and the oral cavity as a whole.
In her free time, she enjoys creating, cooking, trying to improve her amateur violin skills, and spending time with family and friends.
