What is my favorite file system? I’m asked this question a lot. Good equipment earns my trust, which allows me to conduct each procedure with confidence. WaveOne Gold Reciprocating and ProTaper Gold have earned my trust for shaping teeth. For retreatment, WaveOne Gold Primary. Have a quick listen while I explain …
I feel dental health is important to our overall physical and emotional health. I’m proud to serve my patients in this regard with quality endodontic teaching, and it is part of why I created Root Canal Academy.
Sometimes people say things that make me proud (and emotional). Here is a recent message that I received:
I went through each of the Lesson books that you sent.
First, I just wanted to let you know that you are hilarious. Thanks for making such an easy-to-follow set of books for Endo. I have been getting more and more cases under my belt, and I wouldn’t have started doing these if it were not for the confidence I have gained by going through your material – online and now the Learning Lessons books. I have noticed a definite improvement in the quality of endo that I am providing to my patients. It’s great to have a clear vision of what I will be doing before I even get into a tooth. –L.S.

In a lot of disciplines today people say “there’s always better.” I’ve found the better we are, the more we are rewarded–in many ways. I’m here to make you as good as you want to be. And provide you tools to get there!
I hope to help you provide more services, get more patients, and have more fun. Don’t forget to laugh and enjoy the journey!
I’m proud to present a major new content area on our RootCanalAcademy.com website: The ‘4 Quarters of the Simple ReTx Game.’ Let me introduce the course:
We provide and will continuously update video and other content as RTX tools and techniques evolve. Oh, and we have a ReTx book in production too, as part of our Learning Lessons series. That will be on our Publications page. I’m excited about how this new RTX course can help you serve existing patients better, and add a revenue source with simple ReTx.
ReTx Video — Preview of ‘4 Quarters of the Simple ReTx Game’
This 6:30 minute video — part of a 35:00 minute full procedure — walks us through the retreatment process using a standard periapical radiograph. I annotate the image showing which areas of the canal are targeted with each step and tool of the retreatment–watch and learn the basics of the retreatment technique.
Stay tuned to our website for more additional material for the retreatment course. We are here to make you BETTER TOMORROW with 4 Quarters of the Simple ReTx Game!
Please ask any questions about this course. I’d love to hear your perspective and additional needs.
PS By the way, our new RTX course is organized with the same 4 Quarters system that makes learning easier.

Our last post was a primer ‘Using Calcium Hydroxide,’ as part of our preview of the forthcoming publication of Learning Lessons. In this post, we present Case #5 ‘Removing Calcium Hydroxide.’ I get these questions about removing Ca(OH)2.
- Why do I need to use Calcium Hydroxide? Why not just
leave the canal dry?
- What if some Ca(OH)2 is left on the canal walls and you obturate?
- Can Ca(OH)2 block you out on the 2nd visit?
Here are answers and procedure tips in my Learning Lessons Case #5:
This is another sneak peak at a forthcoming series of Learning Lessons books to be available soon through RootCanalAcademy.com. See other lesson samples in this blog.
Happy endo my friends,
