In addition to dental school, endodontists receive two to three years of advanced education in this kind of treatment. They study root canal techniques and procedures in greater depth, for diagnosis and treatment of more difficult cases. For this reason, many dentists choose to refer their patients to endodontists.

"When I used to do endodontic treatments, I did a really good job, but I was slow as molasses," says Jeff Chamberlain, D.D.S., of Santa Rosa, Calif. "I'm always impressed with my endodontist because he can do the procedures two to three times faster. He's helpful because my patients don't think of root canals as a big deal. They're in his chair for an hour or so and they leave happy. Referring my endodontic cases frees up my time to do things I'm more effective at."
