see - hear - learn - apply / Excellence in Endodontics

The modern technologies in endodontic treatment offer new possibilities for an efficient and effective patient care with a high outcome rate.
What aspects are relevant for the clinician in order to implement these modern technologies in the daily practice? What aspects are relevant for the operator and the dental team regarding the use of the modern treatment procedures for better results in the daily treatment.
The answer for these and other questions regarding modern endodontics in your practice was the starting point for this course series – from the practician for you.
