POSTDOCTORAL ENDODONTICS Highlights • This 24-month certificate program is designed to fulfill the specialty certification of the American Board of Endodontics. • Clinical experience is combined with didactic instruction. • Joint conferences with other disciplines—such as periodontics, prosthodontics, pediatric dentistry, otolaryngology, and neurology—provide a well-rounded basis to diagnose and treat conditions in the head and neck region. • This educational program includes a wide spectrum of historical, classical, and contemporary experiences supported by research and advanced technologies. The clinical portion of the program is technologically oriented, providing the student with modern concepts within the full scope of endodontic treatment, including rotary NiTi instrumentation, microscopes, electronic apex locators, guided tissue regeneration, ultrasonics, and use of digital radiography (including cone beam computed tomography). The didactic portion of the program includes a core curriculum designed to provide all postdoctoral students with a basic interdisciplinary education and a detailed endodontic curriculum that concentrates heavily on knowledge of the literature.
