Anne Koch, DMD is the founder and past director of the postdoctoral program in endodontics at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, where she maintains an adjunct faculty position. The founder and past CEO / President of Real World Endo, Dr. Koch is a member of the Board of Advisors for the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, as well as serving as a board member for CIPD (Center for Innovation & Precision Dentistry ) at Penn.

This course is geared principally toward the recent dental graduate who feels somewhat intimidated by endodontics. Most undergraduate dentals schools have such busy curriculums that minimal time is devoted to clinical endodontics. Consequently, this course will be dedicated to such issues as practical diagnosis, the importance of straight line access, when to refer, how to achieve profound anesthesia, minimization of iatrogenic errors, various instrumentation techniques and obturation options that make sense.

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Recognize what quality endodontic therapy can accomplish for your patient
  • Develop a thorough understanding of diagnosis, instrumentation, and obturation
  • Understand how to diagnose and anesthetize “hot teeth”
  • Discuss file design and metallurgy
  • Cite the rationale behind bioceramic sealers
  • Acknowledge that endodontics and restorative dentistry are not distinct entities
