Course Description

Endodontics is here to stay. We should all be aware of how to properly treat our patients and know when to refer. We should also be aware of what’s next when a tooth fails or endodontics isn’t an option. Throughout this course, we will discuss endodontics from diagnosis to a final restoration.  An endodontist and restorative dentist collaborate throughout the day to enhance your clinical acumen.


Course Objectives

  • Assess the endodontic patient
  • Understand the diagnostic protocols, anesthetic protocols, and treatment protocols for endodontics
  • Visualize the necessity of an appropriate buildup
  • Understand the restorative protocols from the endodontic handoff including prep design, materials, and cementation of indirect restorations
