Endodontists will learn a myriad of complex technical skills needed to perform root canal treatments and other teeth-saving procedures during their residency. They must have a firm hand and stellar hand-eye coordination to perform root canals and other procedures that save teeth with the required precision. My first job after qualifying was Chamber Officer at UCH Dental Hospital. My main consultant was Dr.
Andrew Hyatt. I was responsible for teaching endodontics for the undergraduate course and I spent one or two mornings a week in their clinics. I liked this, but I didn't think much more about it. You'll need a bachelor's degree, a doctorate, and two years of specialized training to become an endodontist.
You should research the entry requirements for dental schools in your area to ensure you are taking the right subjects in your undergraduate degree.
