It takes approximately 10 to 11 years to become an endodontist, four years for undergraduate study, four years of dental school, and two to three years of additional education and residency. Endodontists are dentists with special training in endodontic procedures. They only provide endodontic services in their offices because they are specialists. To become specialists, they complete dental school and two or more additional years of advanced endodontic training.
They perform routine, difficult and very complex endodontic procedures, including endodontic surgery. Endodontists also have experience in finding the cause of oral and facial pain that has been difficult to diagnose.
