No confidence in endodontics or molar endodontics? Unable to locate the canal and unsure if there is an extra canal? Do you find it hard to understand the art and science of negotiating simple and complex root canal anatomy? Then this course is for you.


This intensive and interactive course is designed for clinicians who wish to perform endodontic treatments, with predictable clinical success and without undue complications. There will be hands-on sessions and with real teeth in this course. Also, we will be discussing and demonstrating a variety of instruments and techniques via videography through the dental microscope. Find the MB2’s, cracks in teeth and most of all, take greater satisfaction in your work.
