Course: Automated Endo 2005
Summary of Course Highlights:
Most of the 22,000 previous attendees since 1976 have been general practice dentists who realize after trying to implement the techniques they learned in dental school, that they do not have the time to "do it the way they were taught." Others, after many years referring endo, realize that they are referring a Mercedes a year, and decide to pay themselves first. This course will get anyone started and provide continuing support for advancing from simple cases to the more complex. Retakes are encouraged.
Some pedodontists find that they are faced with emergency endo and once the caries is removed could complete the root canal faster than stopping the bleeding and temporizing to say nothing of the resistance to paying another fee to another specialist.
Some oral surgeons benefit by the ability to do the endo during surgery but look at the dozens of files needed for some rotary techniques and realize that they are not suitable for operating room use.
Some dentists near retirement find that they now have older patients who want endo but would rather have "their" dentist do it rather than refer to a new dentist perhaps in another city.
Dentists in outlying areas are faced with sending patients many miles when they could just as well do the endo. Many of these patients find their way to an oral surgeon instead.
Many or our attendees have tried other "simple" techniques only to find that they are "simple" for the full time endodontist but are still quite complex, requiring the purchase of thousands of dollars worth of supplies they never use.
Many recent graduates who thought they had been well trained quickly find that they do not have the speed necessary to do anything other than the simplest cases. They want to provide a good service but are embarrassed at the time it takes.
Update dentists on proven in-use endo materials and design chacteristics, correcting outdated knowledge, demystifying endo, to relate new technology correlating it with new techniques made possible by it, and provision of new knowledge in specific areas of endo.
Provide a hands-on forum for supervised introduction and/or increased proficiency in the dentist's approach to endo cases.
Identify and dispel reluctance of the general practitioner to incorporate endo into their practice through simplification.
Instructional methods and cost:
This is a two-day, live participation course with endodontic materials and supervised (non-patient) hands-on instruction. Tuition is $650.00 for both days, and includes the cost of materials used at the course.
Interspersed throughout the two days are short letures, demostrations and practice sessions with individualized supervision to help the dentist gain the proficiency needed to incorporate new techniques and technology in his or her practice immediately. The instruction is provided in such a way that transferrance from practice materials to patients is facilitated.
Courses are all on Thursdays and Fridays. Check in is 8:30 am on Thursday. Classes end at 5 PM on Thursday and 4 PM on Friday. Since we have our own classroom, individual consultations are available after class. Bring your xrays, handpieces, files, filling problems etc.
A working light lunch is included both days at noon. Coffee, soft drinks, tea and juices all day.
