CWE Awarded 2018 Top Workplace by Richmond Times-Dispatch


CWE is excited to announce that we’ve been named a Top Workplace by the Richmond Times-Dispatch! We’re extremely proud to be included on the list, and thankful to the CWE Team, who made this possible.

The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

“Commonwealth Endodontics is extremely proud to be named a Richmond Top Workplace for 2018,” said Guylyn Diamond, CWE’s Practice Administrator. “With the amount of growth we’ve experienced over the last two years, this award really speaks to the culture and values that are instilled in our Practice and consistently driven by the actions of each of our team members. It’s an honor knowing we’ve created a work environment for our team that motivates them and fosters close working relationships, which is what we constantly strive to do.”

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”

Root Canal Awareness Week

Commonwealth Endodontics is taking part in the tenth annual Root Canal Awareness Week, May 7-13 2017. Root Canal Awareness Week is a national effort to raise awareness of the role that endodontists play in dental health and to teach the public that root canals should not be feared. Commonwealth Endodontics, along with the American Association of Endodontists, want to dispel the myths surrounding this dental treatment and encourage patients who need a root canal to see an endodontist.

Drs. Martinez, Vranas, Gambrel, Barbieri and Finkler will each have a video segment aired on WTVR’s Virginia This Morning Show beginning Monday, May 9th through Friday, May 12th. Videos will be aired at 9-10AM and then re-broadcasted that same afternoon on CBS 6 News Xtra 4-5PM.

Get up to speed on today’s root canal and discover you have nothing to fear!

CWE Welcomes Dr. Schroeder

Commonwealth Endodontics is pleased to announce Dr. Stephen N. Schroeder has joined our team of endodontic specialists and will begin accepting patients at our West End Office location in early January 2017.

Dr. Stephen “Nick” Schroeder was raised in South Boston, Virginia. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology from James Madison University. In 2012, he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the Medical College of Virginia School of Dentistry. After two years in private practice, Dr. Schroeder returned to academia for his residency in Endodontics at Virginia Commonwealth University where he received his Certificate in Endodontics in 2016. Dr. Schroeder also teaches part-time as an adjunct Endodontic professor at VCU School of Dentistry.

When asked to share his decision to join CWE, Dr. Schroeder responded, “Serving the Richmond community has always been a dream of mine and I am honored to join the team at Commonwealth Endodontics.  I have had the opportunity to get to know the doctors at Commonwealth Endodontics for the past few years and couldn’t be more proud than to practice with them. The entire team at CWE is full of dedicated and kind individuals and I look forward to working with them all while providing the best treatment to my patients.”

In his spare time, Dr. Schroeder enjoys spending time with his wife and two dogs. He and his wife are expecting their first child in early 2017. As an avid “foody”, Dr. Schroeder can be seen at many of the local restaurants in the RVA community or shopping at South of the James Market.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Nick Schroeder to the CWE Team!
