We are “Endodontists” which means we are certified specialists in the area of root canal therapy and associated surgery. To become a “Specialist” a person must first qualify as a general dentist licensed in Canada, then must attend a residency in Endodontology at a University Medical/Dental School. In the residency study is on the medical science and procedural techniques necessary to become a specialist. The final step is a thesis and a series of qualifying examinations.
