Endodontics is the discipline of dentistry concerned with the morphology, physiology, and pathology of the human dental pulp and apical tissues. Its study and practice encompass the basic clinical science, including biology of the normal pulp; the etiology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and injuries of the pulp; and associated apical conditions. The department faculty have developed preclinical lectures, laboratory exercises, and clinical training that cover the scope of endodontics. These experiences are coordinated and incorporated in a manner that provides patients with optimum oral health care in a setting that promotes the mission of the School of Dentistry.
