Endodontists are specialist dentists with additional training in treating diseases and injuries of the pulp and associated conditions, often involving root canal therapy, to save the natural tooth.
The Department of Endodontics’ residents, supervised by a team of specialty-trained endodontic faculty, offer the latest therapies to preserve your smile and oral health. Endodontic care usually requires follow-up with a general dentist for final restoration of the tooth (i.e., filling, crown). The Department of Endodontics will be glad to work with your family dentist to coordinate treatment.
As part of our teaching mission, we provide a 24-month advanced education program (residency) to dentists seeking to become specialists in endodontic care. These licensed, experienced clinicians operate under the supervision of fully-qualified specialists at reduced costs below faculty fees. These residents will ensure your comfort, ease your anxiety, and make every visit as pleasant as possible.
