The clinical emphasis is on developing proficiency with a single basic technique, although competence with alternative techniques is demanded. Clinical experience will include the complete scope of endodontic practice. Medically compromised patients, as well as healthy patients, are treated under appropriate supervision. The range of treatment includes emergency and diagnostic treatment; conservative and surgical therapy; vital and non-vital bleaching procedures; implants, replants, and root-extrusion techniques. A minimum of 300 clinical cases must be completed. These cases must demonstrate a clinically acceptable result. There must be a variety of treatment modalities. Cases are reviewed with all students monthly during Clinical Seminar. Grades are determined by the students’ progress in developing stated competencies and proficiencies and by progress toward completion of the required minimum number of cases.
