Meet Ramya Ramamurthy, D.D.S., M.S.

Diplomate, American Board of Endodontics

Dr. Ramya Ramamurthy, Endodontist is a specialist member of the American Association of Endodontists (AAE).

Endodontics is more a passion than a profession for her. Dr. Ramamurthy is known for her gentle & compassionate care for her patients. She also teaches endodontics to the dental students at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), School of Dentistry where she volunteers as a part-time endodontic faculty.


Endodontics is a branch of dentistry recognized by the American Dental Association involving treatment of the pulp (root canal) and surrounding tissues of the tooth. When you look at your tooth in the mirror, what you see is the crown. The rest of the tooth, the portion hidden beneath the gum line, is called the root. Though the outer portion of the root is a hard tissue called dentin, the inside channel or “root canal” contains a pulp of soft tissue, blood vessels and nerves.

Bacteria that are introduced into the pulp as a result of tooth decay, periodontal disease, tooth fracture or other problems, can severely damage the pulp. When that happens, an endodontic specialist removes the diseased pulp to save the tooth and prevent further infection and inflammation. After successful endodontic treatment, the tooth continues to perform normally.
