2014 Endodontic courses

Rotary Refresher – Saturday 1 March 2014

This course is designed as an introduction (or revision) to a variety of established rotary systems including Mtwo System, Profile and Bio-race. The content is structured to refresh your knowledge of popular rotary methods of preparation and will link to the principles of endodontic practice as they apply to rotary techniques.

Rotary Endodontics: New Concepts, New Horizons – Saturday 29 March 2014

This course provides the opportunity to experience reciprocating systems (Wave-One and Reciproc) as well as ProTaper Next (Swaggering File) and the Twisted File Adaptive (dual preparation method) systems within The University of Sydney Simulation Clinic within the Sydney Dental Hospital.

Comprehensive presentations will take place in the morning within a lecture format. During the afternoon, you will have plenty of time to use these various systems within the University Simulation Clinic, where you will utilise both plastic blocks and extracted teeth during the afternoon sessions.

Throughout the day, there will be discussion of access cavities, straight line access, the necessity of isolation, the importance of medicaments and irrigation, as well as an overview and introduction to the systems used on each day. The use of several different film holders for reliable and reproducible endodontic radiography will be shown and explained. Also discussed will be new technologies in irrigation, preparing calcified canals and “hot” gutta-percha filling techniques.

The knowledge gained during the day will expand your experience with these systems.

Lectures and practical sessions in the Simulation Clinic


Saturday 29 March 2014



Designed for those with some experience and knowledge of rotary preparation systems. This course will show you how rotary systems can be used in more difficult cases (such as calcified canals and larger diameter canals).

The day will introduce you to file systems (both hand and rotary) which are designed for this specific purpose. One of the sessions will be focused on filling the larger diameter canal system with “hot” gutta percha. Following on from this you will be introduced to new systems: Wave-one and Reciproc.  A significant amount of time will be allocated to using these systems on plastic blocks and extracted teeth.
