To become a patient for endodontic care at the School of Dental Medicine (SDM) you must be referred in writing from within the SDM, or from an outside dental office. The referral form from an outside dentist must be faxed to the Endodontic Department (412) 383-9478 prior to your appointment, and a copy of your referral should accompany you for your initial visit.
The first visit is a consultation appointment lasting approximately 30 minutes. This appointment is conducted by a graduate endodontic resident/supervising endodontic faculty. If it is determined that endodontic treatment (root canal) is needed, you will be scheduled in the endodontic clinic. We ask that you bring a copy of your referral form at the time of your appointment.
Appointments can be scheduled by calling 412-648-8616, or in person at one of our scheduling desks.
Please bring with you the name(s) and dosage(s) of any medications you are currently taking. Photo identification and all insurance information must also be brought with you.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to allow for registration.
