Objective: The goal of this course is for new and experienced endodontists and general dentists to learn how to use the microscope efficiently and effectively for all endodontic procedures.

Directed to:  Endodontists and General Dentists

In this course you will learn:

  • Effective use of the Microscope in basic and complex endodontic procedures.
  • Locating MB2 Canals on Maxillary Molars.
  • Broken File Removal.
  • Post Removal.
  • Perforation management.
  • Why the microscope is the standard of care for endodontic treatment.
  • Why doctors struggle using the microscope and how you can shorten the learning curve.
  • How to convince your referral sources why you should be doing the restorative access closure and post placement on endodontic teeth.
  • Most common mistakes doctors make when using the microscope and how to avoid them.
  • How the assistant can improve your efficiency and productivity during Endodontic procedures.
  • Apply the principles of ergonomics in microscope dentistry to make you more comfortable and profitable in your workspace.
  • Maximizing your investment in the dental microscope.

Unlike other endo courses, you will be working an actual operatory with the microscope. You will learn how to use the microscope “in the real world” so that you can take the skills back to your office immediately. You and your assistant can practice


What You Will Learn!

  • Learn how to perform every endodontic procedure, from simple to complex, using simplified techniques , while proficiently using the dental microscope.

  • Apply microscope ergonomic concepts for working in each quadrant of the mouth for endodontics and restoration of the endo-treated tooth.
  • Learn how to sit properly with ergonomic stools in the operatory.

  • Learn how to handle the mirror and positioning during work.

  • Learn the ergonomic benefits of the microscope in dentistry.

  • Learn how to strategically position the patient for optimal ergonomics.

  • Learn four-handed dentistry with the microscope.

  • Learn how to prevent musculoskeletal disorders and the benefits of microbreaks and stretching during the workday.

  • Course description: Clinical workers in dentistry have a high incidence of musculoskeletal disorders, One of the great advantages of the use of the surgical microscope is that it improves ergonomics by improving our working posture. However, we have seen that the ergonomic potential of the microscope is not used due to a lack of information and basic knowledge of how to properly implement its use.

  • At the end of the training, each dentist will be able to return to their office and immediately apply the use of the microscope with proper ergonomics, positioning themselves correctly as operators, positioning the patient correctly, positioning the instruments correctly, and giving the assistant an understanding of their role in ergonomics for the dentist and how it can benefit them. Dentists will also gain an understanding of how proper microscope positioning will impact their health as well as the quality of clinical care they deliver. Participants will learn how to work pain-free and relieve the physical stress that
    plaques the dental profession.

  • The participant will be able to use the microscope efficiently and fluidly, executing the daily and complex endodontic procedures in a more predictable way using one hundred percent the benefits of magnification and appropriate postures with the ergonomic positioning system learned during the course and at the same time execute an adequate post-endodontic restoration, all this in a simulation environment with typodonts adapted to the dental chair.

  • All the participants must submit short videos for the purpose of a pre-course video assessment along with a questionnaire for an individual ergonomic analysis.
