Contemporary Endodontics - Simplified PART 3
Endodontic retreatment and management of complications
18th & 19th October 2019

A practical course in 3 parts over 6 days
£1000 per delegate per course or £2700 for 3 x 2 day courses

This course meets the General Dental Council's educational criteria for verifiable CPD and
13 hours of verifiable CPD points per 2 day course will be awarded.

This unique course is designed to offer pragmatic approach to root canal treatment for the busy practitioner who seeks to provide high quality endodontic treatment with long term predictable clinical success. The course content is built upon most current biological knowledge and clinical concepts. The attendee will be exposed to multiple files systems including both reciprocation and rotary concepts as well as bioceramic, “sealer rich” obturation. Class sizes are limited to 12 with hands-on personalised support from Mark and James to maximise the quality of the education. All delegates will have their own microscope for the duration of the course and access to all the equipment of the specialist environment including Piezo ultrasonics, motors and warm vertical obturation systems.

The course is structured over 6 days but we aim to tailor the teaching to the individual learning goals of the attendees with bespoke teaching on demand if delegates wish.

Participants are asked to bring 5-10 extracted/2 days teeth unaccessed for endodontic treatment.

Course dates booked are non-transferrable.
