    1)UAB does have an endodontics program and the following link has some information:

    http://aae.org/Dental_Professionals/Becoming_an_Endodontist/Advanced_Specialty_Programs_in_Endodontics/All_Program_Pages/University_of_Alabama_at_Birmingham.aspx

    http://aae.org has good amount of information about every endodontics programs. You may want to refer to the site.

    2)I think the answer to your second question depends on what you are looking for i.e. clinical training, length of the program, research, facility, name value of the school, faculty members, low tuition, location, etc.

    For instance, UPENN endodontics has a great program with brand new facility, fame, and a director who is famous for apicos, but their tuition is one of the highest along with Columbia. If you don't care about spending $100,000 / year, this program would be the best one I would recommend.

    If you are looking for a good clinical training with low tuition or much stipends, there are several programs including VCU, Einstein medical center, VA Long Beach, UCLA, Lutheran medical center NY, etc.

    If you are do not mind spending three years instead of two, UCONN, U of Maryland, and UCSF may be great for you. I hope this helps.

    Good luck!:thumbup:
