Dr.Rick Schwartz

Interdisciplinary Endodontics

Conduct a case-based interactive session on decision-making and treatment planning in endodontics.  Emphasis will be on the role of endodontics in multi-specialty care and how endodontic treatment can improve the outcomes in other areas of dentistry, including “pre-implant endodontics”. 


  • Present case histories and lead the audience through the thought process of diagnosis, case selection, endodontic considerations, restorative considerations and execution of the treatment. 
  • After discussion of each case show how the patient was treated and discuss the rationale.
  • Discuss the use of “decision points” in treatment planning, risk/benefit/cost analysis, and “special situations” such as managing resorption, fractures and perforations. Many long-term recalls will be presented.
