The Year Endodontic Course


The Year Endodontic Course 2022

March 2022 - November 2022


The Campbell Academy


The Year Endodontic Course
New call-to-action

Our Aim

Exceptional Endodontic Education: A year course for those who wish to learn clinical Endodontics to the highest standards.

This course will provide a framework for clinicians who wish to practice clinical endodontics to the highest standards at least 2 days a week, and increase their referral base. It will enable them to take on 95% of initial treatment cases to a world-class standard, and give an introduction to retreatment Endodontics.

The Year Endodontic Course Mini-Residency with The Campbell Academy is a training pathway for those who wish to learn clinical Endodontics to the highest standards. 

A course that is designed for clinicians looking to practice Endodontic dentistry for at least 2 days a week and subsequently increase their referral base. Microscope-based treatment will be central to the course, and we shall encompass both nonsurgical and surgical Endodontics, and show technologies at the very leading edge of treatment.

Reading material will be provided, and all clinical teaching will be evidence-based. This is not a course on the literature, but a course on how to treat patients. It will be based on Bill Seddon's experiences of referral-based Endodontics over the last 25 years and have input from renowned international external speakers.  Live demonstrations and treatment will be included, and following completion of the course you should have the knowledge to treat all initial treatment cases and many re-treatment cases.

There will be an emphasis on free-thinking, and an introduction to cognitive science will be in the early part of the course.  We shall have regular case reviews and a platform for online sharing with peer 
discussion of cases included.
