Course content

Course overview

Learn the latest endodontic techniques and skills, demonstrating both classic and contemporary ideas that you will find immediately useful in your dental clinics.

Endodontology, as a science, is the study of the prevention of apical periodontitis and, as a technique, explores the treatment of apical periodontitis. A thorough understanding of the subject of endodontology is at the heart of predictable, high-quality, restorative dentistry. This course is delivered in partnership with simplyendo.

The full course is delivered at the simplyendo site in Formby with additional study at Riverside Campus, Chester. The Postgraduate Certificate is available at Letchworth, Hertfordshire.

Why Study Endodontology with us?

We aim to provide you with in-depth training in the latest endodontic techniques and skills, which you will find immediately useful in your dental clinics.

Our lecturers are experienced endodontic teachers and clinicians who carry out endodontic treatments on a regular basis. They are incredibly enthusiastic about Endodontology, and this will come across in all our teaching sessions.

The course is balanced between didactic interactive seminars and ‘hands-on’ training using the latest simulated root canal technology, with emphasis being given to practical sessions.

Your confidence in cleaning, shaping and filling root canals will increase – and your practice will become more profitable and enjoyable.

How will I be taught?

The full course is delivered at Altrincham dental surgery and Riverside Campus, Chester; with the Postgraduate Certificate available at Letchworth, Hertfordshire.

You will be taught using both interactive seminar discussions in small groups and extensively via ‘hands-on’ sessions. Group sizes will be limited to ensure the best possible experience for you.

Contact hours are three per week. You will also be expected to undertake seven to ten hours of private study per week.

How will I be assessed?

The course balance is reflected in our diverse assessment strategy, which mixes academic requirements (including small essays) with practical requirements and case presentations.
