Jon Hope works in three practices across Plymouth in the South West of England, two of which are focused on endodontics with the third being general practice.

He also teaches undergraduate endodontics at the Peninsula Dental School and here he tells us more about how simplyendo® has helped his career.

Why did I choose simplyendo®?

Most of my colleagues don’t enjoy endodontics and I understand why; it’s time consuming, fiddly and the outcome is never guaranteed but it’s something that I have come to really enjoy and wanted to explore further.

I never rush into things so carried out extensive research into various Endodontic MSc courses across the UK and simplyendo® really stood out from the others.

Having a good balance of work and study was essential for me and simplyendo® had the best by far which is what made me enquire to begin with.

The team answered all of my questions and it quickly became obvious that they have a true passion for their course and their method of teaching.

Training that transfers into the real world.

As I mentioned, finding a course that allowed me to study without losing many working hours was imperative for me. I was able to work almost full time in practice whilst studying for my MSc, which was a huge advantage.

There is plenty of hands-on experience as well as theory on the programme and the tutors all have a wealth of knowledge and experience. They’re also extremely approachable and even now, 4 years on, I can still rely on them for guidance if I have a particularly tricky case.

It’s safe to say that without simplyendo® my job would be completely different to how it actually is. I spend most of my week either teaching or working on a variety of different endodontic cases on referral.

The skills gained from the course really do transfer to real world scenarios and gave me the confidence and ability to carry out the more complicated side of root canal treatment.
