This graduation profile is one of the five graduation profiles within ACTA's postgraduate Master's programme in Oral Health Sciences.

Organising Department and Faculty 

The department of Endodontology at ACTA has been offering a post-graduate endodontic programme since 1992. It is one of very few English-taught postgraduate programmes in Europe which has been accredited by the European Society of Endodontology (ESE). The aim of this graduation profile is to train dentists in Endodontology at a specialist level. The Endodontology programme contains a highly integrated selection of courses and emphasises the development of a strong basic scientific background together with advanced diagnostic and clinical skills. The profile director Dr Suzette van der Waal is supported by 10 endodontic specialists who all work part-time at ACTA. Every year 3-5 postgraduate students are carefully selected for the 3 year full-time Endodontology graduation profile.

More about Endodontology

  • Outline of the Endodontology programme

    In addition to seminars and tutorials, a considerable amount of time is devoted to treatment of patients referred by general practitioners. The clinical part involves extensive training in diagnosis and treatment of endodontic diseases, pain and trauma, surgical endodontics, and special-care patient’s groups. Research training within the field of Endodontology is also part of the programme. At the end of the final year, students present the results of their individual research projects in a written report which is suitable for publication in an international peer-reviewed journal. The goal of the entire programme is to prepare motivated dentists for a career in a multitude of areas, including clinical practice, teaching and research.

  • Diploma

    All Oral Health Sciences students are conferred a joint Master’s degree in Oral Health Sciences by both the University of Amsterdam and the Vrije Universiteit, which specifies the chosen graduation profile. Additionally, Endodontology graduates are eligible for 'endodontist specialist' member status from the European Society of Endodontology (ESE) and will be recognized as endodontists by the Dutch Association of Endodontology (NVvE).
