Endodontics From A To Z: Practical and Comprehensive 4-day training for GPs (Limited attendance)

This is one of the most comprehensive endodontic lecture/workshop training programs for GPs in the country.

This course is tailored for novice and experienced general dentists with comprehensive hands-on training. The program is full of honest tips, tricks and advice aimed at helping dentists perform better root canals, with less stress and more efficiency. Topics will include endo emergencies, diagnosis, anaesthesia, access preparations, safer and faster instrumentation, obturation, pain and infection management, single visit endo, and restoring endo treated teeth.


  • Under very close supervision, all workshop exercises will have participants trained on a variety of protocols, instrumentation and obturation systems.
  • Participants DO NOT need to bring extracted teeth. Four (4) extracted and mounted teeth will be provided to all participants. If however, participants would like to bring additional teeth to work on during the program, extra time will be allotted for this.

DAY ONE (Evening)


  • Endodontic diagnosis, including identifying symptoms of non-endo origin.
  • Management of endo emergencies.
  • Treatment planning (endo vs. retreatment vs. surgery vs. implants)
  • Anaesthesia in endodontics, including hot teeth.
  • Canal/working-length determination with radiographs and apex locators.

WORKSHOP – Endo Access

  • Extracted and mounted teeth will be provided for participants to endodontically access, with supervision. Participants will later instrument and obturate their accessed teeth and radiograph them along the way for assessment.
  • Ideal access preparations.
  • How to locate MB2 canals.
  • Prevention of perforations during access preparations.
  • Workshop review, and question and answer period for the group.

DAY TWO (Morning Lecture)

  • Ideal hand instrumentation with stainless steel files and glide path preparation (especially of calcified and curved canals).
  • NiTi file instrumentation protocols (rotary and reciprocating).
  • How to instrument more efficiently.
  • Prevention and management of instrumentation mishaps (ledging and blocking of canals, and file separation)
  • Proper use of electronic apex locators.
  • Disinfection of root canal system with various intra-canal meds, sonics and ultrasonics.
  • Protocols for obturation (warm vertical and carrier-based)
  • Obturating more efficiently, predictably and in 3-dimensions.

DAY TWO (Afternoon Workshop)

  • Learn how to properly use hand stainless steel files, glidepath NiTi files, and rotary and reciprocating NiTi file systems.
  • Negotiate canals (including calcified and curved canals).
  • Learn about efficient four-handed endodontics by means of chairside exercises.
  • Workshop review, and question and answer period for the group.

DAY THREE (AM Workshop – Irrigation and Obturation)

  • Perform passive canal irrigant activation.
  • Learn how to perform warm vertical / downpack obturations.
  • Learn how to obturate with carrier-based systems.
  • Workshop review, and question and answer period for the group.

DAY THREE, Afternoon (Lecture)

  • One vs. two appointment root canals (when, how and why).
  • The significance of magnification (loupes and microscopes) in endodontics, and how to incorporate them into their practice.
  • Restoring endo-treated teeth, including the use of posts.
  • How to select the instruments that suit their style of practice (ie: files, obturators, endo motors, apex locators…)
  • Return on investment of various endodontic instruments.

DAY Four (Morning Lecture)

  • Radiographic review and assessment of participants’ instrumented and obturated teeth, to highlight reasons for endo failure/success.
  • Post-op pain and infection management (anaelgesics and antibiotics)
  • Documentation / record keeping-keeping and informed consent.
  • Prevention and management of patient complaints.
  • The role of 3D/CBCT imaging in endodontics.
  • Common reasons for endodontic failures.
  • Recap of entire program and question and answer period.
