Dr. George Bruder, DMD Endodontist
"From Files to Ferrule: A Restoratively Driven Path to Endodontic Excellence"
Dr. George Bruder

This course focuses on the extension of the tooth life cycle. Participants will learn the benefits of reviewing Remaining Dentin Thickness (RDT) and current endodontic restorative trends/techniques that preserve long-term success of the tooth. The goal of this course is to reinforce the value of combining Endo/Resto and the need to retain Pericervical Dentin and the establishment of a “TruFerrule”.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will be able to:
- Diagnose and Treatment plan Endo/Resto procedures with confidence. 
- Discuss endodontic therapy including pre-endodontic restorations, access, and dentin preservation.
- Provide clear guidelines for when a post is needed and choosing direct vs. indirect options when restoring.
- Explain why single visit Endo/Resto is preferred and when it is not an option.
