American Association of Endodontists - national organization representing the specialty of endodontics or root canal treatment. American Association of Women Dentists - dedicated to enhancing and promoting participation and leadership for women in organized dentistry.
Advances in the understanding of endodontic pathosis, aseptic technique, and principles of canal preparation and obturation have led to significantly increased and predictable healing rates for endodontic treatment—95% and higher under ideal conditions (Salehrabi R, Rotstein I. J Endod. 2004 Dec;30(12):846-50).
