Advanced Education in Endodontics

Front door to Endodontics program

The Advanced Education Program in Endodontics has as three key goals: to prepare the resident for eligibility for the American Board of Endodontics; to prepare the resident to be a competent professional clinician who has an in depth understanding of the science and practice of endodontics; and to prepare the resident for teaching and for the evaluation of the endodontic literature. Service in organized dental activities, emergency care and volunteer teaching is fostered with patient-centered education and a commitment to excellence.

Our curriculum, which provides excellent clinical training, integrates the health sciences with clinical experience and utilizes modern technology. Our success is based on maintaining a strong faculty and staff, supported in their commitment to teaching, on-going development, research, and student service.
