New microscope: Great benefit in endodontic therapy

We’ve taken delivery of a great new piece of equipment…a high powered microscope.

The main aim in having the new microscope is to assist in endodontic treatment as it enable the dentist to have better vision when the root canal work is being undertaken.

The microscope has six levels of magnification are 2.5x, 5x, 10x, 14x, 18x, 22x. It also has a 180 degree inclinable binocular which assists the dentist in achieving greater vision of the tooth being worked on. The photo below shows Ross Henderson who has a key focus on endodontics in our clinic using the new piece of equipment.

Planning for new courses: Other dentists and dental professionals welcome

We often host courses and seminars in our Glasgow clinic which has great facilities for staging such events. As well as the latest audio visual equipment we’ve also got livecam links to one of the surgeries which can then beam images to our seminar room.

These events are primarily for other dentists and dental professionals and are regarded as a key part of ongoing professional development.

Currently working with some of the major implant and dental material companies to finalise our programme of events for the coming academic year.

Watch this space…we’ll give details of courses on our website.
