Hands-on course in advanced endodontic practice

endodontics1The School of Clinical Dentistry, University of Sheffield, invites Dental Practitioner colleagues to participate in a new clinical hands-on short course in Endodontics. The aim of this course is to develop your endodontic operative skills with a focus in orthograde root canal treatment. You will gain clinical experience by treating a range of challenging endodontic cases in the clinical facilities of the Charles Clifford Dental Hospital (CCDH), under supervision of highly experienced staff, including consultants and specialists in endodontics.

The course is aimed at qualified dentists who have an interest in developing their endodontic skills further in line with current knowledge and using the most up-to-date techniques. Participants will already have experience of providing endodontic treatment to a good standard and seek to be taking this to the next level of complexity.


The course will commence with a 2-day hands-on clinical skills component, covering all aspects of endodontics including assessment, using the endodontic microscope, isolation, access preparation, canal preparation with hand and rotary files, thermal obturation and re-treatment. These techniques will be developed further by treating patients with challenging endodontic presentations. The patients and the required specialist endodontic equipment will be provided. Participants will attend on a sessional basis for 1 session every three weeks for a total of 10 sessions from November 2016 to May 2017.

Upon satisfactory completion of the course you will be issued with a certificate in advanced endodontic practice acknowledging the knowledge and experience gained in terms of content and number of hours.
