Introduction to Dental Microscopy:

Introduction to Dental Microscopy:

A Two-Day Hands-On Workshop

Instructors: Jean Wu, DDS, Allan Jones, DDS, Janice Chou, DDS

A stimulating two-day course combining the most current technological methods and fundamentals of clinical microscope for dentistry.

Participants will focus on clinically relevant information that is needed to provide successful advanced procedures for esthetic, restorative, endodontic or periodontic practices, and use that information as they perform their dentistry with the aid of the clinical microscope.

As the participant concentrates on the requirements for incorporating the clinical microscope into their daily dental practice with tooth preparations, access for endodontic treatments, and instrumentation for periodontal procedures, both on the bench and in the mouth of a simulated “patient”, their skills advance to a new level. When you leave this course you will be able to:

  • Par focal a clinical microscope quickly and correctly.
  • Move freely between most or all magnification levels and know which levels of magnification are best for each situation.
  • Effectively and efficiently move throughout the maxillary arch using direct and reflected vision.
  • Effectively and efficiently move throughout the mandibular arch using direct and reflected vision.  The achievement of this goal may be more challenging for some participants, but will come with time and experience.
  • Comfortably do full crown preparations in all four quadrants of the mouth at 8x to 12x magnification.
  • Learn the ideal ergonomics with microsurgical instrumentation.
  • Master the ergonomics of working under magnification.

This workshop combines lecture and hands-on formats along with the small class size to provide individual, needs-specific mentoring from instructors to participants.

Students are encouraged to bring a challenging or interesting case for review with the instructors and possible sharing with the entire class.

8 CEU per course day, total 16 CEU, available.
