Department of Endodontics

http://dentistry.tamhsc.edu/endodontics

The Department of Endodontics at the College of Dentistry provides education to develop competent diagnosticians and clinicians in the field of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases involving dental pulp and the tissues at the root apex.  

The endodontic faculty teach a full scope of clinical and didactic endodontic courses to second-, third-, and fourth-year dental students.

An optional MS in Oral Biology is available through the Department of Biomedical Sciences. Application is made through ApplyTexas. The MS requires the successful completion of an additional 32 semester credit hours, the completion of a research project, and the successful defense of a written thesis. Additional time in residence would be required if pursuing the Certificate and the MS in Oral Biology simultaneously.

The students in the graduate certificate program treat complex cases beyond the scope of DDS expertise, with cases being referred from within the College of Dentistry and from regional dentists. The students also provide treatment to medically-compromised patients onsite and in hospital settings.

The department has generated numerous research publications during the past decade in the field of endodontic surgery and materials.
