Interested in our University accredited programmes?

The MSc in Endodontology programme is run as a collaborative partnership between simplyendo and The University of Chester (who validate the programme) and has been running very successfully for a number of years. With the option to exit with a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma or a full MSc, we believe that our postgraduate programmes offer a high degree of flexibility for the busy dentist.

Aims and objectives

Aims and objectives

simplyendo provides an endodontic coaching programme for dentists that:

  • teaches the biology of endodontic disease

  • demonstrates and discusses contemporary endodontic techniques, using an evidence-based scientific approach

  • is delivered by the simplyendo team of dentists and clinical assistants

  • this results in predictable endodontic care of the highest quality

 Participants will develop:

  • an understanding of the aetiology of endodontic disease

  • the ability to assess the likely prognosis for successful endodontic treatment

  • the ability to carry out an appropriate treatment with a high degree of predictability

They will:

  • experience the use of rotary canal preparation techniques and thermal obturation systems

  • appreciate the importance of both apical and coronal seals

  • understand the difficulties of retreatments and concepts such as resorption

  • understand the management of trauma

They will also:

  • experience the very latest and evidence-based endodontic opinions

  • be in an excellent position to make valid diagnosis and choose appropriate treatment plans

Your commitment, participants are expected to:

  • Attend each of the ten full-day sessions

  • Take part in hands-on practicals and get involved in group discussions

  • Prepare for each session by reading a selection of refereed research articles, as well as making use of the recommended reading list


Module 1-5 topics

Module 1- 5 topics

Hands-on techniques are demonstrated both live and with the use of video. The ratio of didactic to hands-on training is 50:50.

Participants are encouraged to have a go themselves, using all of the contemporary endodontic preparation and obturation systems currently available in the UK. The hands-on sessions allow participants the opportunity for an unbiased look at the different systems and materials.
