Lecture & Hands-On

Rooted in Excellence: Mastering the Art and Science of Endodontics

Instructor: Dr. Gary Glassman

November 29–30, 2024

Course Description

This course addresses breakthrough concepts and details the skills needed to perform top-quality endodontics with confidence. Participants will become familiar with the “apex last” approach to canal shaping with nickel-titanium instrumentation using the ProTaperTM Gold Rotary and WaveOneTM Gold Reciprocating NiTi Systems. Choose whether you want to shape your canals using Continuous Rotation or Reciprocation. The end result is increased resistance to cyclic fatigue with more confidence in your hands.

We’ll cover predictable irrigation protocols for removing smear layers and biofilms to achieve optimal canal debridement. Vertical condensation of thermo-softened gutta percha using The Continuous Wave of CondensationTM and GuttaCoreTM thermo-softened carriers will also be discussed.

During this exciting presentation, participants will receive hands-on experience in a workshop environment.

Additionally, we offer an adjunctive assistant program that covers endodontic set-up, rubber dam and X-ray placement, and effective collaboration between dentist and assistant to ensure the best patient experience.

  • At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

    • Assess the criteria for a successful endodontic procedure
    • Perform a Systematic Diagnostic Protocol and Treatment Plan
    • Provide emergency endodontic care
    • Access for success – looking for the MB2 canal
    • Accurately locate the apical terminus and troubleshooting tips for apex locators
