   Course Sponsored By: Real World Endo

Thursday, April 7     8:00 - 11:00 AM

Course Description:  koch cardThis presentation is geared principally toward the recent dental graduate who feel somewhat intimidated by endodontics.

This presentation will include a 15-minute Q & A session.

  1. Be able to recognize and comprehend what well done endodontics can accomplish for their patient.
  2. Have a more thorough understanding of diagnosis, instrumentation, and obturation.

  4. Have a better understanding of file design and metallurgy.
  5. Fully understand the rationale behind bioceramic sealers.
  6. Acknowledge that endodontics and restorative dentistry are not distinct entities. It is truly an Endo-Restorative Continuum.
