Nauman Chatha, DDS is a practicing and academic Endodontist based in Boston, Massachusetts. He attended New York University for his DDS, Yale New Haven Hospital for General Practice Residency, Boston University for MSD in Endodontics, and Harvard Medical School for MMSc in Medical Education. Asides from maintaining a private practice, he is a Clinical Assistant Professor/Lecturer at Boston University, Harvard University, and the Boston VA Healthcare System.

Management of an open apex in a young patient with a necrotic tooth provides a great opportunity to perform regenerative endodontics to allow continued root formation and reestablishment of a functional pulpal-dentinal complex. This provides a great alternative to non-surgical root canal treatment which is not the ideal treatment for such 

cases, or apexification which does not address the thin dentinal root walls; hence leaving the tooth still prone to fracture. This course will describe in detail the process and concepts behind regenerative endodontics and will help prepare the general dentists and or pediatric dentists in correctly identifying and diagnosing these cases and performing regenerative endodontic procedures. 

Please note: $35 Non Member Fee NO CHARGE for MDS Members- Registration Required.

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Identify and diagnose cases ideal for regenerative endodontics
  • Understand the science and concepts behind regenerative endodontic procedures based on literature and AAE guidelines

  • Differentiate between the different capping materials used in regenerative endodontics 
  • Execute the protocol of regenerative treatment procedure
  • Describe the primary, secondary, and tertiary goals of success in regenerative endodontics as outlined by the AAE
