ATTENTION PATIENTS: Mask Requirement and Screening

Although the Alabama statewide mask mandate expired April 9, the City of Birmingham approved an extended mask mandate through May 24. If you have an upcoming appointment, please know that all patients and caregivers are required to wear a mask or face covering inside the School of Dentistry facility. These can be cloth masks or commercially made masks.

Warning! Face coverings should not be worn by:

  • Children under the age of two.
  • People who have trouble breathing.
  • Anyone unable to remove the face covering without help.

If one of the above reasons is applicable, please call 205-934-3077 prior to your appointment.

We are also conducting advance and onsite symptomatic screening, including a temperature check, for all patients and caregivers entering the School of Dentistry. Patients should enter the building through the front (atrium) entrance on 7th Avenue S. in order to be screened.

Please view this COVID-19 Patient Alert for more information on preparing for your appointment.

Root Canal

5th Floor

The Endodontics Clinic provides non-surgical and surgical root canal treatment to patients. These treatment modalities address the inflammation and infection of the pulpal tissue. During root canal treatment the inflamed or infected pulpal tissue is removed, then the canal system is cleaned, disinfected then filled and restored.

There are treatment alternatives for patients who are experiencing problems in previously treated endodontic cases. These alternatives include non-surgical root canal retreatment and surgical treatment.
