Enhance endodontic skills through live CE in Chicago in March

ADA hosting two-day in-person continuing education course


The ADA is hosting a 12-hour in-person continuing education course in March that will offer dentists a comprehensive exploration of endodontic topics while providing a practical and technology-integrated learning experience.

Optimizing Endodontics: Embracing New Techniques and Technology: A Hands-On Workshop is scheduled for March 15-16 at ADA Headquarters in Chicago.

Over two days, participants will take part in seminars and discussions that offer a real-world clinician's perspective as well as an experience through hands-on sessions.

The featured speakers are Allen Ali Nasseh, D.D.S., and Anne Koch, D.M.D.

Dr. Nasseh is a senior clinical instructor and lecturer at the department of restorative dentistry and biomaterial sciences at Harvard School of Dental Medicine as well as the owner and director of Microsurgical Endodontics, a multi-specialty endodontic practice in Boston.

Dr. Koch is the founder and past director of the postdoctoral program in endodontics and microsurgery at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, and she maintains an adjunct faculty position at Harvard and the Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, where she is also on the board of advisors.

"Drs. Nasseh and I are firm believers in an endo-restorative continuum rather than the separate entities of endodontics and restorative dentistry,” said Dr. Koch. “This course will take you through the process of how to perform endodontic therapy in such a manner that you will not only achieve the biologic objectives of performing a root canal procedure but doing it in such a manner that you enhance the long-term prognosis of the restored tooth." 

The course is a collaboration with Real World Endo; both Dr. Koch and Dr. Nasseh are affiliated with the technology and development company.

Participants will learn to:

  • Skillfully perform a logical differential diagnosis.
  • Effectively anesthetize “hot” teeth.
  • Visualize and create the ideal access preparation.
  • Embrace the crown-down philosophy.
  • Implement the innovative blend technique of rotary instrumentation.
  • Execute great endodontics without compromising the integrity of the tooth.
  • Master root canal filling using a bioceramic technique and hydraulic condensation.
  • Carry out predictable pulp caps and pulpotomies using bioceramic putty.
  • Harness ultrasonic technology effectively in endodontics.
