Endodontics for the General Practitioner:
What to do and how to do it; What not to do and let someone else do it
(Lecture & Demonstration)
Presented by Tota Shimizu, DDS
CEU’s: 7 credit hours
The current standard of care in Endodontics has become higher than ever in the history of dentistry. We are now able to save the teeth that used to be doomed for extraction, with the help of such technology as Ni-Ti files, microscopes, and ultrasonic instruments among others.
It is unarguable that specialists, endodontists, are most qualified to diagnose and perform the best endodontic treatment, but we strongly believe that general dentists’ roles are equally important to help patients keep their own teeth.
In this lecture course, we, as endodontists, will reveal all the important “trade secrets” about our clinical activities, so that course participants will be able to keep up with the most current endodontic treatment.
