Dr. Bradford R. Johnson DDS, MHPE on how UIC is on
the forefront of advances in Endodontics
The clinical specialty program in endodontics is a full-time program that requires twenty-four consecutive months to complete. The program has been designed to satisfy the needs of those who wish to acquire greater skill, knowledge, and experience in endodontics, as well as a background in biological sciences.
The Department of Endodontics at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry has a unique history. Started by the innovative and nationally renowned Dr. Charles G. Maurice in 1965, the department also was chaired for many years by Dr. Nijole A. Remeikis, the first woman Diplomat of the American Board of Endodontics and an internationally honored endodontic educator. The department in the 1990s offered the first Endodontic Microscopy Center in the Midwest, providing a unique level of training to students and continuing education opportunities to alumni and others.
