An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in root canal treatment. Root canal or endodontic treatment is a procedure performed to remove damaged tissue from inside the root canals of a tooth. As a specialist, endodontists limit their practice to endodontic procedures.
The Department of Endodontics supports the Dental School Mission toward the enhancement of oral health through acquisition, dissemination and use of endodontic evidence based knowledge. This mission is addressed through four interrelated action components: education, patient care, research and community service.
