The purpose of this two-year postdoctoral program is to develop competent endodontists with a proper background in the clinical and biological sciences, research methodology, and teaching. The clinical experience, with an emphasis on surgery, utilizes the latest in technology and techniques. This broadly based education in endodontics and related phases of graduate education provides the student with a thorough preparation for specialty clinical practice and/or teaching. The program is also designed to satisfy the guidelines for certification by the American Board of Endodontics.

During the junior and senior years, students diagnose and treat clinical endodontic cases as well as attend a series of advanced endodontic seminars.
