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 2) will emphasise the team approach necessary when using the microscope. You are encouraged to bring your chairside assistant on this day. This course will emphasise training in four-handed dentistry specific to creating a microscope enhanced general practice, including the efficient use of rubber dam and other clinical skills.

Dentists are encouraged to attend ‘Part 2’ with their chairside assistant.

All reference material will be supplied. Your presenters include a specialist endodontist, general practitioners and a microscope-trained chairside assistant, all with extensive microscope experience who look forward to sharing their knowledge with you.

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.
