An endodontist is a dental health professional who specializes in treating damaged root canals in teeth.
After dental school, endodontists complete specialized graduate education in endodontic care.
Endodontists are licensed by the state in which they practice. And while it's not mandatory, endodontists may acquire certification from the American Association of Endodontists' Board of Directors after passing a review and examination.
