5 (1 vote)

CE Hours: 2.0

Course Description:

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Implement the various imaging technologies in a "Virtual Surgery©" environment to develop an effective and appropriate treatment plan.
  • Identify the various materials and methods for site enhancement and development.
  • Discuss the various root end preparation/filling materials and their appropriate applications.
