Endodontics is the branch and specialty of dentistry concerned with the morphology, physiology, and pathology of the dental pulp and periradicular tissues. Its study and practice encompass the basic clinical sciences, including biology of the normal pulp, and etiology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and injuries of the pulp and associated periradicular tissues.
For more information, please refer to the Canadian Academy of Endodontics.
The basis of the Fellowship Examination is the discussion of case scenarios administered in an oral format. The cases cover subjects generally understood to constitute the science and art of Endodontics, the supporting basic sciences, and related subjects:
- Sciences (as it pertains to Endodontics)
- Therapeutics & Pharmacology
- Clinical Techniques & Treatment
- Adjunctive Disciplines e.g. Periodontics, Prosthetics, and Implantology
- Management of Medically Compromised Patients
