  • Fundamentals of rotary instrumentation - The Reciproc system

    Elimination of micro-organisms from the root canal system is the key goal of endodontic therapy. This task is achieved via the effects of mechanical instrumentation and chemical disinfection. The introduction of nickel-titani um (NiTi) rotary files has changed the way root canal preparations are perfo rmed, enabling more complicated root canal systems to be shaped faster and w ith fewer procedural errors.   This course is designed for gene ral dentists who wish to provide excellent endodontic care for their patient s through advanced NiTi rotary instrumentation.

  • How to reach Excellence for your daily Endodontics: XP Endoshaper

    The outcome of endodontic treatment depends on the health of the periodon tium and also the long term survivability of the tooth. Maximal success for both these objectives can be achieved by thorough disinfection of the root c anal without any unnecessary removal of dentin and followed by sealing of th e root canal and the coronal space.   The internal anatomy of human teeth is highly complicated  and consists of a network of curved, anas tomotic canals, as seen in studies of the root canal anatomy. Navigating eff iciently, safely and predictably through this network has been a subject of research over the years.  For the past few years, great emphasis ha s been placed on the minimum instrumentation requirements in order to achiev e effective disinfection, especially when it comes to highly curved or anast omotic canal systems.

  • Revenue, risk and wealth management for dentists

    Introduction The science and art of Dentistry is capital intensive, r isk rich and financially rewarding.  Kenyan dentists have several uniqu e needs for startup and expansion finance and like their counterparts elsewh ere, they have a need to constantly improve business systems and structures. In order to provide sustainable, high quality services, Dentists in private practice, of necessity, must therefore exercise diligent planning and execu tion of financial, risk and wealth management. Often times private practices reach a plateau in their ability to keep up with changing technologies and business environments. Access to finance and creditworthiness is key. Notewo rthy is the recent decrease in bank interest rates which has resulted in mor e stringent prequalification criteria for loans. Methods This series of power point presentations will motivate Dentists and provide them with i nformation on best practices in financial management including sourcing capi tal for startup and expansion, alternative income streams, revenue managemen t, risk management; wealth management and exit strategies. A pre conference preparedness survey will be administered to all participants and results sha red during the series of talks  Results Participants are expect ed to leave the session motivated to plan for investment finance in the lucr ative dental industry, to manage their risk exposure and prudently manage th eir wealth as part of a long term exit strategy from operative dentistry. Conclusions This topic is highly relevant because basic business skill s are not taught in many dental schools. Good clinicians do not often make g ood managers of small to medium sized clinics and attending this lecture ser ies is likely to empower participants to maximize their income potential.
