In contrast to German universities, a range of courses divided into specialist disciplines has prevailed in the USA. This is certainly one reason why it was possible to devote so much time to the subject of endodontics at Boston University.
Dr. Pontius interrupted his practice for 3 years to complete his training with Dr. Schilder at the Endodontic Department of Boston University in the USA. This university is considered one of the leading schools in the world in the field of endodontics. Dr. Pontius was thus the first German to graduate from the US with a residency in the field of endodontics. Thus, this method came to Germany in a direct way.
But that is not all. What the star in the Michelin Guide is to a master chef, the Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics is to an endodontic specialist. In 2003, Dr. Oliver Pontius became the second European to receive this highest qualification that can be achieved in the field of endodontics.
Oliver Pontius uses his extensive experience in endodontics to develop this field of dentistry, which is still young in Germany. Special mention should be made of the "Pontius Study-Group", which meets several times a year, in addition to numerous lectures.
Diplomate of the
American Board of Endodontics
The highest quality level of a specialist in endodontics can be obtained through the American Board of Endodontics. Dr. Oliver Pontius received in 2003, as the second European, this highest qualification that can be achieved in the field of endodontics.

The modern knowledge of endodontics summarized for the general practitioner.
The Pontius Academy aims to convey the latest knowledge in the field of endodontics in a compact and understandable way on one Saturday. We focus on the most relevant topics and issues for general practitioners. The dentist in private practice should learn how to apply this knowledge efficiently in his practice. At the same time, he should know what he can do - and what he cannot do.
Monday – Thursday: 8.00 am – 5.00 pm
