Welcome to the UAB Department of Endodontics. Our department wholeheartedly supports the mission statement of the School of Dentistry at UAB:

To optimize oral health locally and globally

Endodontics focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp and periapical tissues. Our team of professionally trained endodontists, residents and students work in a technologically advanced clinic in which contemporary diagnostic concepts and treatment modalities to save teeth are offered to our patients. Our clinic utilizes a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) which provides 3-D imaging of the tooth and the surrounding periapical tissues. Our clinical services include nonsurgical root canal therapy, nonsurgical retreatment, surgical root canal therapy, vital pulp therapy and regenerative endodontic procedures.

Our goal is aimed at saving and preserving one of our patient’s most prized assets – the natural teeth. This goal is accomplished through the dedicated pre-doctoral training of our dental students and the advanced postgraduate education of our residents.
