(AGD code 070 - 13 lecture, 9 participation)

This stands as one of the nation's most extensive endodontic lecture and workshop training programs designed for general practitioners.

Catered to both novice and experienced general dentists, this course offers comprehensive hands-on training. It is crafted to equip dentists with valuable insights, practical tips, and effective techniques to enhance their proficiency in performing root canals, minimizing stress, and improving efficiency. The program covers a spectrum of topics, including endodontic emergencies, diagnosis, anesthesia, access preparations, advanced instrumentation for safer and faster procedures, obturation, pain and infection management, single visit endodontics, and the restoration of endodontically treated teeth.

Day 1

Covers topics including diagnosis, emergency management, treatment planning, and anesthesia; the workshop involves hands-on practice with extracted teeth, focusing on ideal access preparations, locating MB2 canals, and preventing perforations.



  • Endodontic diagnosis, including identifying symptoms of non-endo origin.

  • Management of endo emergencies.

  • Treatment planning (endo vs. retreatment vs. surgery vs. implants)

  • Anesthesia in endodontics, including hot teeth.

  • Canal/working-length determination with radiographs and apex locators



  • Extracted and mounted teeth will be provided for participants to endodontically access, with supervision. Participants will later instrument and obturate their accessed teeth and radiograph them along the way for assessment.

  • Ideal access preparations.

  • How to locate MB2 canals.

  • Prevention of perforations during access preparations.

  • Workshop review, and question and answer period for the group.

Day 2

The workshops cover effective hand instrumentation, NiTi file protocols, canal negotiation, mishap prevention, apex locator use, root canal disinfection, and obturation techniques through practical exercises.


Morning Workshop

  • Ideal hand instrumentation with stainless steel files and glide path preparation (especially of calcified and curved canals).

  • NiTi file instrumentation protocols (rotary and reciprocating).

  • How to instrument more efficiently.

  • Prevention and management of instrumentation mishaps (ledging and blocking of canals, and file separation)

  • Proper use of electronic apex locators.

  • Disinfection of root canal system with various intra-canal meds, sonics and ultrasonics.

  • Protocols for obturation (warm vertical and carrier-based)

  • Obturating more efficiently, predictably and in 3-dimensions.


Afternoon Workshop

  • Learn how to properly use hand stainless steel files, glidepath NiTi files, and rotary and reciprocating NiTi file systems.

  • Negotiate canals (including calcified and curved canals).

  • Learn about efficient four-handed endodontics by means of chairside exercises.

  • Workshop review, and question and answer period for the group.

Day 3

The workshop covers canal activation and obturation techniques, while the afternoon lecture discusses one vs. two appointment root canals, magnification in endodontics, and instrument selection for individual practices.


Morning Workshop

  • Perform passive canal irrigant activation.

  • Learn how to perform warm vertical / downpack obturations.

  • Learn how to obturate with carrier-based systems.

  • Workshop review, and question and answer period for the group.


Afternoon Lecture

  • One vs. two appointment root canals (When? How? and Why?)

  • The significance of magnification (loupes and microscopes) in endodontics, and how to incorporate them into their practice.

  • Restoring endo-treated teeth, including the use of posts.

  • How to select the instruments that suit their style of practice (ie: files, obturators, endo motors, apex locators…)

  • Return on investment of various endodontic instruments.

Day 4

The final seminar covers radiographic assessment, pain management, documentation, patient complaints, 3D/CBCT imaging, common endodontic failure reasons, and ends with a program recap and Q&A.


Morning Lecture

  • Radiographic review and assessment of participants’ instrumented and obturated teeth, to highlight reasons for endo failure/success.

  • Post-op pain and infection management (analgesics and antibiotics)

  • Documentation / record keeping-keeping and informed consent.

  • Prevention and management of patient complaints.

  • The role of 3D/CBCT imaging in endodontics.

  • Common reasons for endodontic failures.

  • Recap of entire program and question and answer period.



Participants are welcome to bring radiographs of their endodontic cases for a private one-on-one review and discussion with Dr. Haas.
