The Art of Retreatment 2-Day Hands-On Laboratory Course


Focusing on all anatomy, including molars

ADVANCE YOUR ENDODONTIC SKILLS TO THE NEXT LEVEL in this new and exclusive two-day limited attendance laboratory course. Self-paced hands-on exercises and one-on-one coaching enable participants to increase their endodontic talents and treatment abilities. Drs. Buchanan and Gholian perform retreatment therapy on TrueTooth™ replica teeth under a microscope enlarged to 16x linked to a 6-foot television monitor, enabling clinicians to view every demonstrated aspect of the procedure from the beginning to end in 3D imaging. Performing the techniques on your own unlimited supply of TrueTooth™ replica teeth allows for truly iterative learning as you work on the same teeth used for instruction, rather than a random experience working with extracted human teeth.
