Specialist for Endodontics
The German Association for Restorative Dentistry (DGZ) and the German Association for Endodontics (DGEndo) award the title of “Specialist for Endodontics” only after thorough examination. In order to be awarded this title, a dentist submits hundreds of patient cases, from which a selection is specifically prepared and examined. After submission of these cases and after publication of a certain number of studies, an oral examination, supervised by a committee of experts, takes place. A pre-requisite is to have worked for a university for a minimum of 3 years or to have worked in a specialised practice for a minimum of 5 years. This title of “Specialist for Endodontics” is equal to that of a endodontic specialist.
