Program Summary In the last two decades, dentistry has seen a shift toward a more conservative approach and toward minimally invasive procedures. Magnification is a necessity to achieve these new treatments. Loupes and headlights have been of great help, but ultimately the dental operating microscope (DOM) is the key to micro-dentistry. The objective of this class is to learn the basics of a DOM-oriented practice, with an emphasis on endodontics. The theoretical portion of the lecture will focus on current and relevant literature demonstrating better results and higher treatment success, as well as concentrate on new techniques and handling of instrument with the DOM. Successful integration of the DOM in clinic will also be covered. The hands-on session will concentrate on the ergonomics of the microscope-centered practice, including adjusting of the DOM to your eyes, and learning adequate positioning. Finally, clinical tips will be given for endodontic therapy while practicing on a model tooth and extracted teeth. Course Objectives • Be able to assess the impact of DOM on the clinical result in dentistry • List the advantages and disadvantages of using the DOM in a modern private practice • Enumerate the new instruments needed to achieve micro-dentistry • Become familiar with the DOM settings and functionality
