Residency Program Description
The didactic portion of the endodontics curriculum explores the biomedical sciences upon which modern endodontics is based. These include anatomy, immunology, microbiology, statistics, among others, and a comprehensive review of the endodontic literature. Additionally, an attempt is made to review approximately three textbooks related to endodontics during each year of the program. The clinical portion of the program is extensive with past residents completing an ample number of cases. Case review is conducted weekly with residents presenting all their cases to attending faculty and fellow residents. Each resident is involved in clinical teaching with the pre-doctoral clinic for ½ day per week. Additionally, they are asked to present lectures and lead seminars for the other residents. A significant research project is required and oral and written examinations are given twice yearly.
Upon completion of the program, graduates will receive a certificate in Endodontics and a Master of Science in Dentistry (MSD) Degree. Other course work may be required as individualized programs are developed by the faculty to meet the specific needs of each student. We do not require a GRE Exam score for admission.
Operating microscopes and all instruments are furnished.
The program begins July 1st with three residents being selected each year.
