Clinical Endo Diploma Starting in Dubai with Fundamentals of Endodontics

Post a comment by Dental Tribune MEA / CAPPmea

CAPP-Tipton Dental Academy and the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry (BARD) are launching the Clinical Endodontics Dentistry Certificate and Diploma programme in Dubai, UAE on 20 April 2017 with faculty lead Prof. James Prichard, UK. The organisers will welcome 24 delegates from Bahrain, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Iraq, Oman, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE for the first module which will take place in the CAPP Training Institute between 20-23 April 2017.

The four days will cover “Fundamentals of contemporary endodontics” which will include “Understanding of instrument design and its effect on prevention of iatrogenic errors” and a hands-on training on “hand filing and lateral compaction techniques.”

The programme prepares the delegates to threat complex and challenging cases such as retreatment which have higher failure rates when performed by dentists who have not receive specialist training. The programme will employ several methods of delivering education.

The core of the course falls in to two areas of training: academic and hands-on training skill enhancement with traditional and contemporary endodontic techniques. In the academic part, the education will be delivered via didactic lectures, seminars and student presentations. This format would allow for delivery, assimilation and cementation of knowledge based on scientific evidence. In the hands-on training the delegates will be trained in access, shaping, irrigating and obturating techniques that are widely commercially available within the Middle East.

The structure of training will move students from learning classic hand-filing to contemporary hand-filing with NiTi instruments and subsequently move onto rotary NiTi and Reciprocating NiTi. This will work hand in hand with learning classic obturation with cold techniques to thermal techniques and single cone techniques. Prof. James Prichard as faculty lead brings with him a team of teachers with vast knowledge in Endodontics such as Prof. Paul Tipton from UK, Dr. Antonis Chaniotis from Greece, Prof. Edward Lynch from UK, Dr. Adam Toft from UK and Dr. Justin Dinley from UK.

The Certificate consists of three modules which will take place every three months. Each module is four days long. The course offers the participants a chance to obtain a Certificate in Clinical Endodontics from the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry (BARD). After a successful completion of the Certificate course, the participants will have the chance to sign up for the Diploma course which will lead to Post-Graduate Diploma in Clinical Endodontics from the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry (BARD). The Diploma consists of additional three modules which will take place every three months. Each module will be four days long.

After completion of the Diploma, there is an option for delegates to take the pathway to Masters in Clinical Dentistry (MClinDent) in Endodontology with City of London Dental School (CoLDS) and BPP University. Registration is now open for group 2 which will start later in 2017.
