Centre of Excellence in Endodontics

ExcelEndo in partnership with SimplyEndo (UK) offers a complex post-graduate training program, the central theme of which is Endodontics. Our unique concept offers an interactive approach to teaching, enabling participants to learn the latest Endodontic techniques in the shortest time possible. The program not only covers general theoretical aspects of Endodontics, together with clinical protocols based on the latest scientific evidence, but also a significantly high amount of hands on technical training in order for participants to put their newly acquired knowledge into practice.

Our program started in 2003 in the United Kingdom and it is fulfilling the GDC (UK) regulations and provides 60 hours of verifiable CPDs.


Hands-on techniques are demonstrated both live and with. The Ratio of didactic program to hands-on training is 50:50.

The course groups will be limited to 4-6 people for a better one to one experience

Participants are encouraged to practice themselves, using the vast majority of Endodontic preparation systems and oburation available. Hands-on sessions provide participants with the opportunity to form a unbiased opinion on various materials and systems.

This is the starting point for all SimplyEndo programs

ALL SIMPLY ENDO PROGRAMMES


Structure

This program runs for 2 consecutive days per month for 5 months, allowing the participants to quickly obtain a greater confidence in Endodontic diagnosis, planning and treatment.

Aims and objectives

Our program has the following features:

  • done teaches the biology of Endodontic pathology
  • done demonstrates and discusses contemporary Endodontic techniques, using an evidence based approach
  • done is accomplished by the ExcelEndo - SimplyEndo team
  • done contains predictable Endodontics of the highest quality

All participants will:

  • done a thorough understanding of the etiology and pathology of Endodontics
  • done ability to evaluate the prognosis for successful Endodontic treatment
  • done the ability to achieve a correct Endodontic treatment with a high rate of predictability

All students will:

  • done experiment with preparation techniques using rotary instruments and warm vertical condensation techniques.
  • done understand the importance of apical and coronal seals
  • done understand the difficulties of retreatment and various concepts such as resorption
  • done understand the management of trauma
  • done discover the latest opinions in Endodontics
  • done be in an excellent position to achieve a correct diagnosis and choose an appropriate treatment plan.

Participants are expected to:

  • done be present at all sessions
  • done take part in hands-on sessions and participate in group discussions
  • done prepare for each session by reviewing in advance the recommended items as well as reading all materials from the list of recommended reading.
  • done know English at an average level.
To whom is it intended?

This program is intended for postgraduate training of dentists in both general practice and that shows/presents a special interest for Endodontics and want both to deepen the theoretical knowledge and to develop their clinical skills in the field of endodontics

The Aim of the programme

Through this programme we intend to prepare experienced-well rounded-clinicians that will develop the competences and the necessary skills to be able to diagnose and treat successfully the small and medium complexity Endodontic pathology.

Participants will receive:
  • done a thorough understanding of the etiology of Endodontology pathology
  • done the ability to evaluate the prognosis for successful endodontic treatment
  • done the ability to achieve a correct endodontic treatment with a high rate of predictability
