Endodontics - Certificate
Endodontics is concerned with the morphology, physiology and pathology of the human dental pulp and periradicular tissues. Its study and practice encompass the basic and clinical sciences including biology of the normal pulp, the etiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries of the pulp and associated periradicular conditions. In addition, these specialists are involved in the use of magnification modalities and non-surgical and surgical endodontics treatment and retreatment. The certificate program in Endodontics is a 27-month graduate program, fully accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation, designed to be a comprehensive, didactic, clinical and research experience into all aspects of endodontics.
All courses within this program are taught face-to-face, on campus at the College of Dentistry in Dallas. This program may require off-campus assignments at local, Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex hospitals or dental clinics.
Application requirements include a DDS, DMD, or an equivalent foreign dental degree, letters of recommendation, a letter of motivation, a resume, a competitive class ranking, and passage of the National Board Dental Examinations or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) if a graduate of a foreign dental school. Application is made through the Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS). The deadline to apply is July 15 of each year, with a start date of the following June.
The program provides the graduate student with the tools necessary to be a clinically proficient endodontist, an astute diagnostician, a critical thinker, and a sound “endodontist-scientist.” In addition, the program prepares the student for the American Board of Endodontics certification examination.
An optional MS in Oral Biology is available through the Department of Biomedical Sciences. Additional time in residence would be required if pursuing the Certificate and the MS in Oral Biology simultaneously.
This program prepares students for the opportunity to pursue an occupational license. Please refer to the Notification for Students Pursuing an Occupational License in our catalog for additional information.
