Endodontic Program

The Endodontic Program at the University of Pittsburgh is an integral component of the School of Dental Medicine and supports missions in teaching, service, and scholarly activity.

Our mission is to:

  • Provide teaching and clinical training to predoctoral students and specialty residents in endodontics;
  • Provide endodontic care that is compassionate, comprehensive, and accessible;
  • Develop and conduct innovative and integrated research activities by members of the endodontics program; and
  • Actively participate in continuing dental education courses and professional organizations, regionally, nationally, and internationally.

The First Professional Preclinical and Graduate Endodontic Residency Programs support the Comprehensive Care Program. The Comprehensive Care Program philosophy of functioning analogous to a private practice setting; only patients presenting with complicated endodontic situations are referred to residents.  

The endodontic residency program consists of six residents; three residents the first year and three residents the second year. Endodontic residents are responsible for treatment of patients for root canal therapy, trauma, and endodontic surgery. Residents participate in clinical research projects and publish in the Journal of Endodontics.  They are involved in abstract publications and poster presentations at the American Association of Endodontists meetings held yearly.
