Practitioners will appreciate the advice; patients will reap the benefits in improved dental comfort and function. 

Dr. Curtis discusses the most important tool in Endo and reveals the step he deems most critical to root canal success. Dentists receive guidance on the best sealers to maximize bonding, which Ultrasonic Endo unit to purchase, and how to eliminate time-consuming and costly post-op mistakes by using lights and magnification. Easy-to-follow steps help dentists gain confidence in their techniques and ensure positive outcomes. Endo Essentials contains must-have information for every dentist who wants to improve Endo success and create a thriving practice filled with happy, healthy patients.

Course Content:
Patients want a pain-free experience. They judge a dentist’s competency by his or her ability to provide gentle care and comfortable numbing. Painful injections and hygiene visits make patients lose trust in a dental practice. Diminished confidence on the part of patients spells disaster for dentists and results in lower case acceptance, broken appointments, and lost referrals.

Chapter 3 of Dr. Michael Curtis’ Anesthesia & Pain Relief offers useful tips and tricks to help dentists provide comfortable anesthesia delivery and satisfy a patient’s need for soothing care. Dr. Curtis also imparts useful information to make the most frequent procedure in a general practice – hygiene – less stressful and more comfortable. When dentists and their teams gain patient trust, everyone benefits!

    Course Content:
    A dentist can perform a perfect Endo, but if proper protocols are not followed after the procedure, all that hard work can be in vain. An effective temporary seal, proper cleaning, and accurate selection of the type of restoration are critical steps necessary to Endo success and patient satisfaction. Chapter 7 of Endodontics by Dr. Michael Curtis provides dentists with detailed information concerning the steps to restore a tooth following Endodontic treatment. General Practitioners learn to select the optimal post, create robust bonded restorations, and whiten Endo teeth. By discovering how best to proceed after Endo, dentists can prevent re-infection and provide a structurally sound, comfortable, attractively restored tooth.

    Course Content:
    Endo is the most common procedure dentists do after fillings and cleanings and a proven avenue to increased profits and volume.  According to surveys conducted by the American Dental Association, approximately 12 million root canals were performed in the US in 1999 alone, with about 9 million conducted by General Practitioners. Dentists who do not tap into this lucrative marketing  and the subsequent treatment needs it produces are missing out on improving practice success and referrals.

    In Chapter 9 of Endodontics, Dr. Michael Curtis tells dentists how to set Endo fees, navigate the maze of insurance filings with specific codes, and integrate useful patient forms into their practices. Because many new and emergency patients require Endo, this procedure is a major practice and confidence builder that dentists cannot afford to miss.

    Before Endo can be performed, it must be diagnosed. Chapter 10 lays out tips to determine whether the type of pain a patient presents with is indicative of an Endo-related problem. Dentists learn about tools to test for different sensations and how to accurately assess the results of those tests.
