Program Overview:

Join facilitator Dr. Ken Hargreaves in a "late night" talk show format as he interviews experts on the past, present and future of endodontic treatment.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  •  Describe the biological basis for providing both vital pulp therapy and endodontic treatment of the tooth with a necrotic pulp.
  •  Describe efficient methods for obtaining rapid and effective anesthesia in the endodontic pain patient.
  •  Describe the rationale and approach for providing regenerative endodontic treatment

Rex Holland, B.D.S., Ph.D.

I did my undergraduate training in both dentistry & physiology at the University of Bristol. Following that I completed a PhD at the same institution then accepted a faculty position at the University of Iowa. I spent four years in the Anatomy Dept of the University of Manitoba before completing a graduate program in Endodontics at the University of Iowa. I then spent 12 years in the Department of Restorative Dentistry at the University of Alberta including spells as Chair of Endodontics, Departmental Chair and Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies. I moved to Michigan in 1995. My research interests have been sensory mechanisms in the tooth and the results and repair of injuries to the inferior alveolar and lingual nerves. I edit the Archives of Oral Biology and review papers for several other journals.
