Delve Deeper into the Art and Science of Endodontics

14 Mar 2024

Endodontics is a branch of dentistry which deals with tooth pain and the preservation of natural teeth. The Postgraduate Diploma in Endodontics training at IMU will not only endow candidates with the knowledge, abilities, and self-assurance necessary to perform evidence-based endodontic treatment on clinical cases with varying degrees of complexity, but also result in more consistent clinical outcomes that deliver superior quality care.


The objective of the Postgraduate Diploma in Endodontics programme at IMU is to train students in understanding the pulpal and periapical pathophysiology, evidence-based selection of suitable dental materials and instruments, educate students in the fundamental rationale of clinical techniques, and the management of moderately challenging failed endodontic cases. This programme is specifically tailored to accommodate the flexible needs of both full-time and part-time students.


The programme consists of six modules distributed over the course of two semesters, each lasting seventeen weeks, and requiring a total of thirty credit hours to be completed in one year. Each module has an approximate six-week duration, which includes a mandatory one-week of on-site activities at the IMU School of Dentistry.


Students are presented with the option of performing clinical cases either at the IMU Oral Health Centre or in their individual clinics. To promote optimal learning at IMU, each student is allocated a personal mentor who would provide support and guidance in their academic endeavours.

Here are what some of the students have to say about the programme

As a practicing dentist looking to enhance my skills in endodontics, I can confidently say that this course has exceeded my expectations in every aspect. The curriculum is comprehensive and well-structured, covering all aspects of modern endodontic treatment, from diagnosis to advanced treatment techniques. The faculty members are highly knowledgeable and experienced clinicians who provided invaluable insights and guidance throughout the course.


One of the highlights of the programne is the hands-on training sessions, where I have had the opportunity to refine my clinical skills under the supervision of expert mentors. These practical sessions were instrumental in boosting my confidence and competence in performing root canal procedures effectively and efficiently. Moreover, the course emphasizes the importance of evidence-based practice, incorporating the latest research findings and clinical guidelines into the curriculum. This approach not only deepened my understanding of endodontics but has also equipped me with the knowledge and tools to deliver optimal patient care.


Overall, I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to participate in this course. It has not only expanded my professional horizons but also empowered me to provide high-quality endodontic care to my patients. I would highly recommend this course to any dentist seeking to elevate their skills and expertise in endodontics.
