Rotary refresher & New concepts, new horizons


These two days are designed so they may be attended as either a one- or two-part program….both are designed to be stand alone components but can be a larger two part practical endodontic experience. There is no pre-supposed knowledge with either course and even if you’re a rotary “newbies” you will find both courses useful and informative

In both days there will be some discussion of access cavities, straight line access, the necessity of isolation, the importance of medicaments and irrigation as well as an overview and introduction the various systems to be introduced on the various days.. 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..

These comprehensive and interesting presentations will take place in the morning, allowing ample time to use these various systems in University Simulation clinic utilizing both plastic blocks and extracted teeth during the afternoon sessions ( please bring at least 5 accessed multi-rooted teeth to make the most of this session).

Rotary refresher - Saturday 21 September 2013


This course is designed for those who would like an introduction (or a revision) to four well established rotary systems and will introduce you to, or refresh your knowledge of, four popular rotary methods of preparation AND go through the basics of sound endodontic practice as it applies to the use of rotary techniques. The systems discussed with be the M2 System, ProTaper, and Twisted File. After a morning of presentations the whole afternoon is devoted to practical exercises and demonstration in the University simulation clinic.

New concepts, new horizons - Saturday 19 October 2013


This course is for those who wish to experience the new reciprocating system (Wave-One and Reciproc) as well as the even newer ProTaper Next (Swaggering file) and the Twisted File Adaptive (dual preparation method) systems.

At the end of the day participants will have had:
  • a refreshing of the basics of sound endodontics
