Abstract

A postal survey of recent United Kingdom dental graduates was undertaken to establish the amount of their undergraduate endodontic experience and their opinions of their training. A 75% response was achieved from all but two schools. Recent graduates had generally undertaken fewer cases as students than older graduates. Several had undertaken very few endodontic procedures as students. Differences and trends were seen in the opinions of students and their experiences among the schools, and between the two year groups studied. Most students were not very confident to undertake molar endodontics. Many felt they needed more practical experience as students and training in newer techniques and instrumentation.
