Becoming an endodontist is a long and arduous process that requires a significant amount of dedication and hard work. It typically takes 10 to 11 years to become an endodontist, including four years of undergraduate study, four years of dental school, and two to three years of additional education and residency. Endodontists are dentists with specialized training in endodontic procedures. They are experts in their field and only provide endodontic services in their offices.
To become specialists, they must complete dental school and two or more additional years of advanced endodontic training. Endodontists are capable of performing routine, difficult, and very complex endodontic procedures, such as endodontic surgery. They also have experience in diagnosing oral and facial pain that has been difficult to identify.
