KURT SCHROEDER, DDS After a satisfying 10 year career in general dentistry, I elected to return for clinical and didactic training in endodontics to be able to concentrate in a specialty of dentistry that offered unique challenges. I have found that most gratifying among the many skills I have subsequently developed is the ability to relieve patient suffering with more predictability. This has also strongly motivated me to more effectively teach diagnosis and management of dental and pulpal pain to undergraduate and postgraduate endodontic residents. I also find that my perspective as both general dentist and endodontic specialist gives much more substance and depth to my student and faculty teaching interactions in both treatment planning and management of cases.
