Endodontist - Westerville, OH
Dr. Lisa M. Poweski, D.D.S., M.S.
Why did you become an endodontist?
Dr. Lisa is originally from Youngtown, OH. She grew up with a dad who was a general dentist, and worked at his practice throughout the summers. She really enjoyed seeing him interact with his patients. After completing college and undergoing a General Practice Residency, she realized that while she loved general dentistry, she really wanted to focus on one specific area of expertise. After exploring her options, she found endodontics and fell in love with it after completing an additional residency.
Today, she is still very happy with her decision! Dr. Lisa strives to make the experience as comfortable as possible. Her nurturing nature is ideal for children and adults. She looks forward to not only relieving your pain, but helping you enjoy a stronger, healthier smile in the process.
