    What knowledge, skills, and behaviors define competency in endodontics?

    This presentation will discuss the options and possibilities as well as the obstacles that drives our specialty to make the argument for a quality standard in endodontic care and the competence required by any practitioner to achieve that standard when they choose to provide endodontic care to a patient.

    In 2017, the American Association of Endodontists determined that there was so much poor and professionally shameful endodontics being done in the private sector by non-specialists that it was long past the time that our specialty needed to stand up and publicize both the quality and prudent standards in endodontics that we recognize and value in patient care. How can we as specialists address the epidemic of poor care and outcomes that every endodontist witnesses on a recurring basis? What is our responsibility as advocates for the highest standards of endodontic treatment?
