This is a 3-day comprehensive program, best suited for general practitioners and fresh graduates. The course is aimed to train participants to identify complicated endodontic cases, while acquiring skills and knowledge to perform root canal treatment for uncomplicated cases.
Limited to 9 participants per module, thereby facilitating individual attention.
Program timing 8:00am to 8pm (Day 1 and 2). Day 3 will be from 9:00am to 6pm.
Participants’ will be performing hands-on rotary endodontics on patient simulator mannequins, closely mirroring the clinical scenario. Training in this set-up allows realistic learning by virtue of challenges like operator position, patient position, indirect vision, intra-oral and perioral tissues impediments, etc.
The academy has a dedicated pre-clinical space that allows each participant to set-up an individual work station on the designated pre-clinical mannequin. This augmentation of physical and mental space, would allow for enhanced learning,application, and performance.In addition, each step of endodontic treatment would be demonstrated and evaluated under the dental operating microscope.
Participants have to bring a good air-rotor handpiece and extracted teeth, preferably maxillary/mandibular molar’s and incisors. All other consumables and non-consumables including endomotor and apexlocator will be provided from the academy. There will a course completion certificate that will be give to all participants at the end of module.

The course is ideal for general dentists and Endodontists who are seeking to advance their knowledge in non-surgical Endodontics and the know-how of embracing a dental operating microscope / loupe’s in clinical Endodontics.
Course is limited to only 3 participants per module for personalized attention. Practitioners need to bring along an air-rotor handpieceand 5 extracted maxillary 1st molar teeth. In addition, participants have to bring 3 Mandibular molars with endodontic access completed and working length determined.
All procedures and training would be performed under the dental operating microscope on phantom head via in-direct vision.
Program timing 8:00am to 7pm (Day 1). Day 2 will be from 9:00am to 6pm. Conducted by Dr. Jojo Kottoor for 2 full days
All the participants will be provided with the following individual equipment and instruments
1. Ultrasonic unit for endodontics
3. Warm Vertical compactor
4. Hu-friedy hand plugger’s
5. Back fill gun
6. Laboratory simulator with mannequin, phantom head and suction.
7. LabomedDental operating microscope: 5-step with variable focus, 280 degree inclinable eyepiece, beam splitter, LED light source, Roto-plate and Duel Iris diaphragm.
8. Each microscope has a video/still camera connected to an LCD monitor for documentation (Photo and Video) and to enable monitoring of participants micro-endodontic work.

This one-day course will teach you rapid and simplified techniques of rubber dam application from single tooth isolation to quadrant dentistry in a full ‘hands on’ environment complemented by evidence based intense lecture.
Sometimes we do waste our invaluable time due to challenges with moisture – saliva, bleeding, tongue, cheeks and lips that are often on our way to reach the goal. And theseimpedimentsare always much more stressful than other important treatment aspects. Fortunately we have a great assistant for this “dirty” job that gives us stress-free conditions of working, saves our time and health and gives best ergonomics, called “Mr. Rubber-Dam”.
Hands-on will be on typhodont models with soft gingiva to simulate oral tissue.
Number of seats per module restricted to 10.
Each participant will be provided with rubber dam sheets, full set of clamps (Winged, Wingless and Brinker), punch, forceps frame and template.
Working lunch & Tea.
