Product not yet rated

CE Credits: 1.5

Course Description:   Endodontists, like all humans, have highly evolved sensory-perception abilities. Endodontists use these senses for their patient interactions and the diagnosis and treatment of endodontic diseases. This presentation suggests that unrecognized intuitive senses may contribute significantly and unrecognizably to these processes. Although human intuition is a mysterious and powerful phenomenon, this presentation reviews the scientific basis of intuition and details possible methods of enhancing one’s intuitive powers. The presenter encourages endodontists to become more aware of the potential for these intuitive powers to exist in their own behaviors, and to embrace them as possibly enhancing their patients’ endodontic treatment outcomes.  

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the scientific basis of intuition and decision-making.
  • Discuss methods to increase intuitive capacity and improve decisions.
  • Describe the influences of other senses on intuition.
