Learn how the microscope can improve your practice

This two-part “hands on” course will discuss how the enhanced magnification and illumination provided by the dental operating microscope can be applied to almost all clinical situations. These include the diagnosis of caries, cracks and fractures, pit and fissure restorations, all stages of cavity, veneer and crown preparations and endodontic, periodontal and oral surgery procedures.

The microscope is already considered the standard of care in many dental specialties, and its use in general practice is growing. By encouraging good posture, the microscope benefits the health of the dentist and the chairside assistant. When combined with documentation facilities, the microscope is an excellent tool for patient education, record keeping and legal defence.

This course (Part 1) is for dentists who either have never used a microscope or have limited experience and wish to increase their knowledge. This course will improve your use of the microscope in everyday clinical situations with “hands-on” exercises on teeth and clinically realistic tooth models.

Bring your chairside assistant. Please be advised that both dentists and assistants wishing to attend both ‘Part 1’ and ‘Part 2’ will need to register for each course separately.
