Endodontics From A to Z: Hands-on Workshop for the General Practitioner

Jun 13-15, 2014

Endodontics has gone through many exciting changes in the past several years. Recent advances in technology, materials and equipment have changed the way endodontics is practiced today. These advances have made it possible to efficiently perform successful endodontic treatment with improved precision, predictable results, and with much greater patient acceptance. This comprehensive state-of-the-art course includes a series of seminars and hands-on workshops specially designed for General Dentists who wish to advance their knowledge and clinical skills in the art and science of endodontics. A team of endodontic specialists from the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC will thoroughly discuss evidence-based clinical and biological concepts of modern endodontic therapy. These experts will walk you, from start to finish, through all the necessary steps and phases that will enable you to enhance the way you practice endodontics so that you can provide the best standards of endodontic care to your patients.

During the hands-on part of this course you will have the opportunity to apply the principles discussed by the USC team of experts and practice in our famous “Sim-Lab,” one of the most modern and realistic simulator facilities in California. You will perform endodontic treatment from start to finish in both single-rooted and multi-rooted teeth and will practice endodontic retreatment.

Without doubt, this course will be a complete learning experience!
