Endodontology is the branch of dentistry that is concerned with the biology, physiology, pathology, and treatment of the dental pulp and periradicular tissues. The Department of Endodontics at Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine provides students with intensive and comprehensive training in clinical endodontics including non-surgical and surgical endodontics and correlated basic and medical sciences. It also trains students in other dental subjects that are related to endodontic practice. Dr. Herbert Schilder’s warm gutta percha vertical compaction technique is taught and practiced in the clinics. The department emphasizes integration of research training into their clinical training. Research areas include clinical outcome studies using cone beam CT, regenerative endodontics, dental stem cell biology and tissue engineering, etc.
