The U.S. Department of Labor projects that employment for general dentists will grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2020. Opportunities for endodontists should also be good. As long as people place a priority on retaining their teeth, endodontists' services will continue to be in demand. The longer life spans of the U.S. population and increasing rates of tooth retention mean that there will be more teeth that require treatment in the future. The emergency nature of many endodontic cases also keeps the demand steady. Most jobs will arise from the need to replace endodontists who retire or leave the occupation.
