Dr. Paul Kaplan, or Dr. Root as he is affectionately known in this area, has been practicing as an endodontist (root canal therapy specialist) in Rhode Island and Massachusetts for almost 21 years. He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dental Medicine and Graduate School of Education. He received his specialty certificate in endodontics from the University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. Addionally, while at the University of Buffalo, he was awarded a Master of Science degree in the oral sciences for research he completed in the field of digital subtraction radiography.
Dr. Kaplan has been awarded many honors, including being chosen as “America’s Top Dentist” in the field of endodontics for the past 15 years in a row, Rhode Island’s top endodontist on multiple occasions and as one of Better Living Magazine’s “Best Doctors for Rhode Island and Massachusetts.”
In addition to treating patients in our dental office, Dr. Kaplan is also involved in the academic area of dentistry. He served as clinical instructor and professor at Boston University’s School of Dental Medicine and Tufts University’s School of Dental Medicine, where he taught post-graduate endodontic residents. Currently, he runs the endodontic department and teaches the AEGD residents at the UMass Memorial Hospital.

Dr. Ilya Livshin immigrated to the United States in 1978 from St. Petersburg, Russia. After growing up in Brookline, MA, Dr. Livshin went to Boston University, where he received his bachelor’s degree. He enrolled at Tuft University School of Dental Medicine where he received his DMD. Then, Dr. Livshin dedicated his dental expertise and his life to the United States Air Force. There, he completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry at Bolling Air Force Base, Washington DC. With this program, he received hands on experience in complex dental restorative procedures, dental implants, root canal therapy, impacted wisdom teeth extractions, cosmetic procedures, migraine/myofascial pain therapy and IV and oral sedation dentistry.
Since then, Dr. Livshin has continued to refine his education, and he is especially committed to helping people with severe anxiety who have neglected their teeth for years. “Too many people live with pain, the inability to chew and embarrassing teeth because they are terrified of the dentist,” he says, “and I want to provide these patients with access to care they need and deserve.”
