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.
