I practiced 4 years in general dentistry in Virginia and Maryland before getting selected at BU again for a 2-year residency program in Endodontics. There I got extensive training in treatment of complex root canals utilizing the operating microscope and performed endodontic microsurgeries. Upon completion of this program I was awarded a Certificate in Advanced graduate studies(CAGS) in Endodontics in 2017.
