Stop Being Slow at Root Canals! Efficient RCTs with Dr Omar Ikram
3 months ago
Conservative Dentistry & Endodontics
The problem I found with endodontics was that the more you learn, the less you can cut corners, and the longer it ends up taking!
I was keen to learn how to be more efficient with endodontics so I brought on Dr Omar Ikram to talk us through his sequencing and protocols for RCTS.
Turn those challenging appointments into seamless, lunchtime-friendly successes.
