The Illinois Academy of General Dentistry, in conjunction with the Wisconsin Academy of General Dentistry, are pleased to present this program leading to Mastership certification
in the Academy. To complete the Mastership Program, candidates must enroll for 600 hours of continuing education, 400 of which must be of participatory nature.
As a leading practitioner and educator, David Landwehr, DDS serves as a frequent lecturer for a variety of organizations each year, focusing on Endodontics and Oral Pathology. Dr. Landwehr received his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin, his DDS from the University of Minnesota, his Oral
Pathology degree from Ohio State University and his Endodontic training from the University of Michigan. Since returning to his native Wisconsin in 1999 he has provided exemplary care to patients and maintains a full time practice at Capital Endodontics in Madison, Wisconsin.
Endodontic success is dependent on a variety of interrelated factors. This seminar will provide a comprehensive review of endodontic diagnosis nd the limitations of pulp testing. A short refresher on endodontic anatomy will help the clinician choose the most predictable cases. After the establishment of a glide path, the clinician is faced with many options to create the final shape and cleanliness within the root canal system. An evidence-based review of special emphasis on instrument design and mechanical movements, will be covered. Additionally, enhanced irrigation protocols will be explored, prior to presenting state of the art obturation and restorative techniques.
The participant will learn:
• how to increase the accuracy of endodontic diagnosis by understanting the limitations of pulp testing
• the design features and working characteristics of the most commonly used root canal instrumentation systems to increase clinical efficiency and predictability
• the most advanced irrigation protocols and techniques for the elimination of bacteria from the root canal system
• how to create the most biologically sound, dense and repeatable 3-dimensional filling of any root canal anatomy
These hands-on programs were designed originally for AGD Fellows striving to be AGD Masters. We have discovered that these programs can be valuable to all dentists from new graduates to the most experienced clinicians.
16 hours of participation credit for those who attend the 2 days of lecture and hands-on. 34 total hours of participation credit to those who attend the 2 days of lecture and hands-on, complete the assigned protocol in their office, and return to document the protocol assignment.
