Is a dentist as qualified to do a root canal as an endodontist?

Yes, legally all general dentists are qualified to do root

canals. But, IMO not as qualified as an endodontist who has gone

through 2-3 years of additional training in the specialty and does

ONLY root canals all day rather than once/week.

I would only let an endodontist do my root canal and similarly

(but more serious) I would only let a heart surgeon do my bypass
