Predictable and Profitable Endodontics: What You Need to Know and How to Perform It with Dr. Anne Koch (Hands-On)
October 6 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Get ready to improve your instrumentation predictability and gutta percha cone-fit while dramatically reducing instrument separation. A variety of techniques and products will be discussed and practiced in the hands on portion of this course. Effective obturation methods will be combined with the latest in material science to fully understand the need to combine the latest technology with the long established evidence based endodontic principles.
Presenter: Anne Koch, DMD
Date: Friday, October 6, 2023
Time: 8:30am – 4:30pm
Location: 1060 Main Street, Suite 201, River Edge, NJ 07661
CE Credits: 7
AGD Code: 070
Subject: Endodontics Participation
Sponsored by: Real World Endo & Brasseler
*Boxed Lunch Included
The lecture session will address endodontics from both an advanced perspective and from a restorative point of view. The key in making endodontics profitable is being able to do cases consistently well and in manner that leads directly to the final restoration.
Doing a root canal with destruction of tooth structure makes restoration challenging if not impossible. In this presentation, Dr. Koch will emphasize the concept of linking endodontics with restorative dentistry and will demonstrate how important it is to be “living in the world of a constant taper” when performing rotary instrumentation.
A completely intuitive way of instrumenting a root canal (the Blend Technique) will also be discussed, as well as an update on bioceramic technology. Direct and indirect pulp caps as well as perforation repair will all be fully discussed.
Upon completion, you will:
- comprehend the endo-restorative relationship and describe the latest techniques used to achieve predictable success.
- have a thorough understanding of the multiple advantages gained by doing a constant taper preparation technique.
- be able to evaluate the changing paradigm in endodontics and realize that adult pulp caps potentially have a place in select endodontic cases.
- be able to predictably perform the Blend Technique in both simple and advanced cases.
- have a more thorough understanding of the many virtues of a true bioceramic cement and hydraulic condensation.
- be able to successfully use a piezo-electric ultrasonic unit for finding hidden canals.
The afternoon hands-on session confirms concepts introduced during the morning lecture. The Blend Technique will be introduced clinically, and a demonstration will be given concerning how to properly use heat treated and non-heat treated files rotary files.
Hydraulic condensation will be performed by all attendees and Dr. Koch will work with each individual doctor. As final validation, all participants are encouraged to instrument a tooth or block while looking directly at Dr. Koch, not the canal!!
Please bring any accessed extracted teeth you may want to work on.

"Very good. Energetic and friendly lecturer. Dr. Koch makes sure all information is easy to understand and implement into practice."
Dr. Timothy Thewes, Morris Plains, NJ
"Dr. Koch is very engaging. I really appreciate that this was a technique/science/logic - based course. Some other CE courses feel like product advertisements, but this was not. I learned a lot"
Dr. Jacquelyn Marano, Chatham, NJ
"Dr. Koch is extremely knowledgeable and outstanding - a great presenter and an asset to NJHPDI"
Dr. Gabrielle Sapienza, Merchentville, NJ
"Excellent course, starting as soon as I walked in the door - Dr. Koch's energy is amazing and delivered a very predictable system for simplifying endo with great technology and technique."
Dr. Joseph Gaudio, Chester, NJ
"Very pragmatic, useful and relevant information using today's materials and clinical findings"
Dr. Stephen Kwitnicki, Summit, NJ
"Great! I learned a lot and feel more confident in approaching endo cases. It changed the way I thought about rotary endo and I feel this course has set me up for success."
Dr. Aaron Jordan, Pikesville, MD
