Dr. John Gibson - Non-endodontic pain

Two of Europe's leading endodontic experts will present a world-class programme on the latest techniques in root canal treatment at the FGDP(UK) Scotland study day in Glasgow on Friday 7 December.


Kishor Gulabivala and Stephane Simon will integrate strands of biological, clinical and technical evidence to describe a coherent view of the nature and problems of apical periodontitis and its solution, root canal treatment. The programme will run in the Science Centre's IMAX theatre and use interactive handset voting technology.


One of the biggest days in the dental calendar, the study day includes an excellent three-course lunch and post-event drinks reception, an extensive tradeshow and the chance to network with hundreds of colleagues. It qualifies for six hours of CPDA.
