This course will provide an update on three Dentsply Endodontic files systems (Protaper Gold, WaveOne Gold and Vortex Blue). In addition to an hour lecture discussing access and glide path principles, the properties and use of the instruments, there will be a three hour hands-on workshop that allows you the opportunity to utilize each system on extracted teeth.


At the completion of this workshop participants will:

  • Be able to describe the differences between the three different systems 
  • Make a more informed decision as to when you would use one system over another
  • Utilize the three different instruments to see how they work and gain appreciation for what each instrument can do.
  • Limited to the first 20 who register/pay
  • Must bring extracted or plastic teeth that have been previously accessed and a glide paths prepared to size 15 K files (9 canals total; 3 canals per file system).

Loma Linda University School of Dentistry Continuing Education programs are open to all oral health professionals.
