Event Details

Module Based Program

This program consists of structured learning modules, which include lectures, practical components, live patient demonstrations, take home assignments, case presentations, assessments and web based learning via tutorials.

The modules of this program aim to cover all theoretical and clinical aspects of nonsurgical and surgical endodontics from basic to advanced concepts. Registrants will also learn recent advances in the management and identification of non-odontogenic and neuralgic pain, and be taught methods of pain, behavior and anxiety control for difficult patients. Extracted teeth and nonsurgical and surgical models will be used by participants to practice endodontic nonsurgical and surgical techniques, and lecture materials and videos will be presented to guide participants through the procedures.

A number of live patient demonstrations in endodontic management of the open apex, location of the MB2 canal, post removal, endodontic retreatment, and crown preparation of the compromised tooth will also be covered. Intravenous sedation will also be carried out for some of these live patient demonstrations. Operating microscopes will be available for all hands-on exercises.

Participation is designed to broaden clinician’s scope of practice and achieve a more advanced knowledge and abilities in endodontics.

Delegates will complete assessments and web based tutorials. Upon completion of the program, delegates will receive a special certificate of completion of Mini Residency in Endodontics.

  • Diagnosis, pre-op assessment and multidisciplinary treatment planning
  • Modern concepts in endodontic access design and location of calcified and MB2 canals
