All endodontic Residents treat patients in the department’s clinic. All second-year endodontic residents rotate in the adjacent Veterans Administration Hospital for further experience with an expanded patient population. Residents are permitted to maintain military reserve status and related activities. Residents are provided the opportunity to participate in charity clinics and off-site patient-care research activities.
The Endodontics Department faculty participate in various committees at the School of Dentistry as well as the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The endodontic faculty are frequently invited to present guest lectures for coursemasters in other disciplines within the dental school as well as present off-site lectures, both nationally and internationally. Our faculty function as group leaders in several case-based courses for dental students. Two members of our faculty participate in the Intramural Faculty Practice.
