VERY STRONGLY OPPOSED
 

As an endodontist, I completed three years of post graduate training after dental school in order to refer to myself as  "specialist" in doing root canal treatment. Endodontists have significantly more training, experience, and ability to handle and prevent complications than any weekend course or unsupervised clinical experience can provide.
