Back with us again due to popular demand, we welcome back Dr Tom Brannen.

From Access to Obturation, this course will describe a simple endodontic workflow that means improved efficiency for you and better outcomes for your patients. Recapping on the principles of root canal preparation, delegates will be guided through each step and explain the science behind the simplicity; showing you why this system is a good fit for you and your practice.

Delivered by Dr Tom Brannen, graduated from Newcastle University Dental School in 2010. He has since worked to continue his development through postgraduate education to enable himself to provide microscope assisted high quality Endodontic treatment using evidence based modern techniques.

Tom’s interests lie in maintaining a patients dental health, function and aesthetics for as long as possible. Nothing is better than your own tooth and he has focused his postgraduate education on modern techniques to maintain maximum tooth structure at every stage. He has further postgraduate qualifications in intravenous sedation to help provide nervous patients with the treatment they require but are too nervous to otherwise tolerate.

In 2016 he passed his MSc training in Endodontics with Distinction from the prestigious Kings College London. Since 2014 he has been working using high power magnification through the use of a dental microscope. The operating microscope allows him to visualise in great detail the internal anatomy of a tooth and enables him to gain improved success rates. The camera attachment allows for further patient education and personal progression through constructive critique of each case. He is a member of the British Endodontic Society and attends the annual meetings and conferences.
