ESE Video 2 - Vital pulp treatment

Fri, Oct 23, 2020

Please see below an email received from Paul Dummer, President of the European Society of Endodontology regarding an education patient video on the role of Vital Pulp Treatment.

Best wishes,

Mike


 A new ESE video on Vital Pulp Treatment has just been launched on the ESE channel within YouTube. The video has English subtitles (text) and an English voice-over.

The video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W4F7AcsNZ0&t=29s

Please make use of the video – which is designed for patients to understand better the scope of vital pulp treatment. National endodontic societies have the opportunity of asking the ESE to customise the video into any language to include the subtitles as well as the voice-over. Please contact your society directly if you would like to have a customised version rather than the one in English.

Best wishes

Paul
PS The ESE is developing a range of other videos, each addressing a specific topic within Endodontics, and each will be able to be customised for national endodontic societies.

simplyendo feedback

Please see below for some feedback from a simplyendo member who attended our Formby teaching college on 14/15 October.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the simplyendo programme. This endodontic course has improved my knowledge, technical skill level and day-to-day clinical problem solving. It is a great community to be a part of to discuss clinical cases and clinical challenges. The course is focused on improving each individual student and the hands-on sessions allow for great practice with excellent feedback. The course is extremely accommodating and has implemented excellent safety provisions during the challenging period of time of Covid-19. Remote online learning and reduced group sizes with clear safety protocols at Formby ensured a safe space to continue learning. I highly recommend the simplyendo
programme" D.C.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown that it has forced us into has really made us all begin to think a little differently. Many of us are learning to slow down, evaluate what’s really important and assess what we might change going forward. Working from home has shown people what they miss out on at home during that commuting time and those who aren’t working have settled into a slower pace of life, reading more, learning more, and appreciating more.

Gerald O’Connor shares how his experience at simplyendo has allowed him to reach his professional goals

In 2013, I was working as a GDP in the UK when I decided to return to Ireland with my family. I took a hiatus for two years before setting up my new practice and, once I did, I realised I wanted to make my clinical practice more niche.

Here at simplyendo we are dedicated to providing a high level of teaching to ensure you get the most out of your Masters degree in Endodontology, which is why we don’t just stop at the endo side of things.

simplyendo - a perspective from the Isle of Man

James Garritt

I live and work on the Isle of Man at the Tracey Bell Dental and Aesthetic Clinic, and we have an excellent visiting endodontist who has been treating our patients. However, he recently decided to cut down his hours and, although we have five dentists working at our practice, we all cover quite specific areas of dentistry. The thing is, I hated endo but I realised that I needed to become better at it in order to fill the gap and provide our patients with the service they need.

Simplyendo is simply the best!

 

As a dental professional there are many areas that you will face on a day-to-day basis. From general dentistry such as check ups and fillings, to cosmetic treatments like whitening and bonding, through to perio and endo surgeries that are rather more involved. It is natural for each individual to enjoy carrying out some treatments more than others, and to feel less confident in some areas.

A true passion for endo

Mike Turner, tutor at simplyendo, shares what endodontics has brought to his life...

I started studying dentistry at the University of Liverpool in 1995 and graduated with my BDS in 2000. From there, I worked as an associate in general dental practice for a few years across Birkenhead before moving to Newcastle, then Northumberland, and then Hartlepool. It was around this time that I decided to concentrate my career in a narrower field.
