Back To Basics Part 2: From Start To Endo

Event Details

Build your skills and confidence in endodontic treatment

This practical two-day hands-on workshop is limited to 16 participants. Delegates must have attended the “Back to Basics – From Start to Endo: Part 1” lecture day on Saturday, July 24, 2021, to be eligible for ‘Part 2’ of the course.

This course’s philosophy is to allow participants to slowly build their skills and confidence in carrying out endodontic treatment on all teeth. The course will be lecture-based with interactive demonstrations and discussions of all phases of endodontic treatment. Participants will carry out the clinical exercises on specifically designed endodontic teaching models and natural teeth.

The clinical sessions will be preceded by practical lectures and hands-on exercises in endodontic treatment phases. These include building up teeth with orthodontic bands to prevent fractures and to provide an aseptic working environment, the rapid application of rubber dam and accurate and easy endodontic radiology. Clinically, participants will have the opportunity to use the latest technology, including apex locators, rotary NiTi files and gutta-percha root filling devices. The final seminar will involve a constructive analysis of the participants’ clinical results. This lecture will include a comprehensive set of notes.

This hands-on course is proudly supported by Dentsply Sirona.
