Endodontic Treatment Standards: A route to enhanced collaboration among endodontic treatment provide
Description: New technologies and materials introduced in the last 20 years have improved endodontic treatment outcomes. This course will describe the standards of modern endodontic treatment, which all practitioners are expected to meet. Upon completion, participants should be able to evaluate their competency as diagnosticians and clinicians and identify areas that require additional education. Based on this evaluation each practitioner must be able to define their own skill level to determine when patients should be referred to a specialist. Having a common language and communication provides a route for smooth collaboration among clinicians and will benefit all stakeholders.
At conclusion participants should be able to
- Describe current accepted protocols in the treatment of root canal systems.
- Apply judicious considerations in self-assessing abilities in performing root canal treatment.
- Develop a common language around treatment standards to enhance collaboration and patient communication.
