UPENN (Martin Trope, Samuel Kratchman). Live-demo Workshop.

UPENN (Martin Trope, Samuel Kratchman). Live-demo Workshop.

April 26. 17:30 - 19:30
Martin Trope: Anatomically Directed Endodontics-Hands-On. This hands-on workshop will acquaint the attendee with protocols for successful endodontic treatment outcome; optimal debridement and disinfection of the root canal space. The integration of dentin conservation, sealing of the root/coronal spaces in conjunction with a restoration that preserves the volume and integrity of the residual clinical crown will be detailed. Minimally invasive 3D cleaning resulting from a new generation of virtual core NiTi instrumentation and bioceramic root filling technologies will be explained and demonstrated. These evolutionary technologies promise enhanced prevention and treatment of apical periodontitis resulting in long-term survivability of the endodontically treated tooth. Sam Kratchman: This LIVE-DEMO workshop will demonstrate the importance of proper positioning of the microscope/patient/doctor for microsurgery, enabling the practitioner to do surgery comfortably and efficiently. A complete surgery will be performed on an extracted tooth mounted in a stone model in a mannequin head, reproducing real-life situations. The procedure will be performed under the microscope utilizing all the microsurgical instruments as well as the new generation of bioceramic putty for root end fillings. The armamentarium will be discussed in detail, allowing the audience to see each instrument’s relevance for the procedure.

Minimally invasive preparation for instrument removal followed by the predictable instrument removal. It is shown and discussed how to make accurate diagnosis and treatment planning for instrument removal. Then, in the workshop both the minimally invasive and predictable preparation techniques are shown and exercised, followed by the predictable instrument removal with the Terauchi File Retrieval Kit (TFRK). Those techniques are performed to both maximize the success and minimize dentin sacrifice without causing iatrogenic events. The plastic tooth models and extracted teeth with broken files will be used in the workshop for practice.
Jean-Yves Cochet. ENDODONTIC SURGERY and SINUS. Live-demo Workshop.

Jean-Yves Cochet. ENDODONTIC SURGERY and SINUS. Live-demo Workshop.

April 27. 17:30 - 19:30
Endodontic lesions may lead to significant bone destruction depending on etiological factors. However, when an endodontic surgery is necessary, regenerating the initial bone volume is a real challenge. I will show you how to effectively use CBCT to get much more information for endodontic complicated cases involving diagnosis of sinus pathology and the decision process of surgical endodontic treatment. We will use the newest 3D Buchanan’s Models for this SINUS ENDO SURGERY LIVE-DEMO. So you will learn: - how to read and interpret CBCT or CT scans and understand its applications for diagnosis, and surgical treatment of large lesion and sinus pathology treatment - sinus pathology and the full endodontic surgery procedure - Particular incision strategy - Particular approach and technics on Sinus surgery - Resection techniques depending of the root morphology and the anatomic situation - Retro preparation with the new Acteon inserts - Retro filing technics using the latest bioceramic materials - new techniques of using membranes for GTR

3d endodontic obturation and restoration. With the increasing clinical use of 3d radiography, quality and outcome root canal treatment can be more accurately visualize. The three.dimensional filling can be more precily defined and assessed, and same can be done with follow up of healing process. As a consequence the quality of both obturation and restoration procedure must be improved to increase long-term success of our treatment. The workshop will show the latest advancement in the two above mentioned procedures.


Besides the main scientific part of the meeting we are organizing a big exhibition featuring the leading manufacturers in endodontics. Thanks a lot to our amazing partners for your trust and support. Looking very forward to it!

Performance at

Performance at "Bolshoy" Theatre

April 25-27 (19:00 - 21:00)
“Bolshoy” is one of the greatest theatres in the world, with its own proud traditions and unforgettable atmosphere. An evening at the Bolshoi is really an essential part of a visit to Moscow. The building itself is one of Moscow's most symbolic sites, a truly impressive example of Russian Classical architecture that faces the Kremlin walls, and some fairly tacky open air bars and restaurants, with proud indifference. The Bolshoy is the second biggest opera house in Europe (after La Scala), and grandeur and artistic strength are combined in everything from the impressive statue of Apollo that crowns the facade to the ballet's famously muscular style of choreography.

The playbill for the dates of ENDOPOINT congress:
Il Viaggio a Reims (Opera)

For tickets please visit the official website of Bolshoy Theatre.

How many CE (ADA CERP) Credits will I get?

After the congress, every participant will receive an official CE certificate verifying his or her attendance. The main scientific programme provides 18 CE credits, while the optional hands-on and workshop courses yield up to ten additional credits.

Do I need a Visa to enter Russia?

A Russian visa is required for citizens of most countries. However, Russia recently entered into a visa-free agreement with several European, Asian and South American countries. Please contact the Russian consulate in your country to check whether the visa-free regime is applicable in your case. Contact info is available here.

How do I obtain a Visa?

Getting a visa is quite easy with a minimum set of documents. You can obtain one by yourself or contact a visa service agent in your country that provides such a service. It is necessary to prepare a set of documents and submit this to the Russian consulate in your country. One of the required documents is a visa support letter, which can easily be provided by the hotel at which you will be staying. If the hotel you have booked does not provide such a service, you can request such a letter from any visa service agent. Note that a hotel booking confirmation and a visa support letter are not the same thing. If you book a hotel without a service of Visa Support, you should also submit a letter of invitation (visa support letter) from an authorised tour company (visa service agent) in order to obtain a visa. The official hotel for the ENDOPOINT event, Golden Ring Hotel, is authorised to provide such a service. After booking your room at the Golden Ring Hotel, you can apply for a visa support letter online. For the full list of documents please visit the Russian Consulate web-site in your country (List of consulate web-sites is available here)
