- There are anatomic, physiologic, and clinical relationships that link between the Endodontium and Periodontium of the 28-32 teeth we operate on in the surgical side of Endodontics, Periodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and Implant Dentistry.
- Clinically, I have noticed that lack of detection or misdiagnosing of tooth cracks, root resorption, coronal and apical microleakage, substandard endodontic treatment, and pulp necrosis can complicate or compromise the outcome of the surgical treatment performed by other specialty surgeons.
- Therefore, I have selected a multi-disciplinary assortment of cases that exemplify the biologic and clinical multi-disciplinary relationship between the four surgical specialties.
- The course also includes reviewing the settled controversies, the bottom-line conclusions of the best and the worst practices in surgical endodontics concepts, methods, and Materials.

The speaker uses case studies from practice and teaching to describe the learned lessons, guiding principles, and bottom-line conclusions from each case study.
1- Use 4R operational diagnosis protocol to diagnose multi-disciplinary surgical cases
2- Use Endodontic Treatment Finalization Protocol For the management of multi-disciplinary cases
3- Outline the pathologies and clinical conditions that affect the outcomes of surgical treatments in endodontics, periodontics, Oral surgery, and implant dentistry.
4- Identify surgical practices improbably performed by Endodontists.
5- Discuss examples of Periodontal surgeries that missed the diagnosis of endodontic problems
6- Provide examples of Outdated Endodontic surgery practices performed by oral surgeons
