Alaskan Summer Cruise 2020

Tracy Arm – Alaska Celebrity Eclipse – Celebrity Cruises

August 23-30, 2020

Presented by Dr. Pommy Hallen, Dr. Michael Sha, & Dr. Joel Fransen

Program Overview – Putting the “DO” in “ENDO”

Molar endodontic treatment is a challenging endeavour for all clinicians. Typical barriers to successful and predictable endodontics are access, orifice location, gaining patency, rotary instrumentation, irrigation and obturation. Recent advances in technology, materials, and equipment have made it possible to improve the predictability and success of your endodontic treatment.

This 6 hour course will allow motivated clinicians to improve their ability to perform advanced endodontic treatment. Participants will learn how to refine access for molar teeth, locate canals, efficiently gain patency, instrument canals, obturate efficiently and minimize the risk of rotary file separation. Without a doubt, this course will help you master molar endodontics.

Day 1 – Endodontic Pearls of Wisdom include:

  • Endodontic Access and Orifice Location (Finding the elusive -MB2)
  • Gaining Patency and Working Length
  • Question and Answer period – any Endo topic you wish
