Dr. Jojo Kottoor is the first person in dental literature to report - maxillary molars with seven root canals & eight root canals understanding root anatomy is the key for success in endodontic treatment. Dr. Jojo is extremely good in identifying/understanding the canal anatomy - the number of publications he has got on this aspect in high impact journals is a testimony to this.
It gives me great pleasure to pen down few sentences on my esteemed colleague Dr. Jojo Kottoor
for his passion and devotion to endodontic research and clinical practice. For many years, I have
been following with a great interest the publications of Dr. Jojo, and I am really impressed for the
high quality level of his work, and his unique expertise for managing difficult and challenging cases.
To the best of knowledge, Dr. Jojo is the first endodontist worldwide to report seven and eight root
canals in molars, and his work was featured at the cover page of the Journal of Endodontics – the
official publication of the American Association of Endodontists. Dr. Jojo and others have exerted appreciable efforts to introduce a new
anatomically nomenclature for the roots and root canals. I am really impressed for his devotion to advancing the body of knowledge in
Dr Jojo Kottoor is a clinician and academician par excellence. It has been my privilege to have been his teacher and see him evolve meaningfully in his endodontic journey. An astute clinician evident by the numerous international clinical publications to his credit, he has been one of my favourite students for being a disciplined and hard worker wanting to imbibe skills n knowledge that would benefit his patients clinically and above all for being a genuine caring human to his friends, students and patients. I wish him and his Root Canal Point the very best and i have no doubts in my mind that his centre would be a pioneering centre of endodontic excellence in the years to come.. God bless and God speed dear Jojo !!!
