Hear it, See it, Do it, Measure it. Dr. John West has designed a workshop that produces results. You will experience firsthand the power of three: How to 1)“Find” all canals, 2) “Follow” all canals and prepare a Glidepath for safe rotary or reciprocation, and 3) “Finish” all canals which includes 3-D Shaping, Cleaning, Conefit, and Obturation.
Participants will learn the essential skills of: “curving” the “Following” files, knowing when to begin rotary/reciprocation by preparing a reproducible Glidepath both manually and mechanically, safest and most efficient motions of rotary/ reciprocal Shaping, discovering when Shaping is finished, and competent, consistent and confident 3-D obturation. No one will leave without a plan to master these skills!
You will learn:
1. How to overcome your biggest mechanical problem.
2. How to “Find,” “Follow,” and “Finish” all canals.
3. Achieve sustainable time-tested endodontic predictability principles using breakthrough technologies.
4. How to make endodontics FUN!
