A 26-year-old dental school graduate applying for an endodontic residency in 2024, born in 1998, belongs to Generation Z. As this demographic increasingly represents the majority in Advanced Dental Education Residencies, determining effective strategies to engage and teach them is of critical importance for educators.
This short-form essay will explore endodontic education's present landscape and its potential trajectory. It will discuss the experiences of residents transitioning from dental school or early restorative dental practice into endodontic residency, the influence of emerging technologies, and the continued effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on endodontic education.
