We are located in the OHSU School of Dentistry. Our department houses an excellent clinical faculty with a varied background and a combined wealth of experience. We emphasize a team approach to endodontics, providing state of the art treatment for patients and education for our students. The overall strengths of the program have given us great success in recruiting a talented and diverse group of residents. Through continual updating of courses and maintenance of a strong research agenda, we have worked to achieve a balanced program founded on excellent clinical training and committed service to our patients.

Endodontics at OHSU School of Dentistry involves root canal treatment for patients by Undergraduate Dental Students and by the Graduate Residency Program.  Cases handled by undergraduate dental student involve root canal treatment only under the guidance of a Specialist in Endodontics in the Undergraduate Clinic.  The graduate residency program provides treatment for patients with more difficult cases.  Root canal therapy, retreatment of existing cases and surgical procedures, if necessary, are completed in the Graduate Program Clinic.
