Ludhiana, June 3
The Institute of Career Designing in Dentistry, Ludhiana (ICDD), held a hands-on course in endodontics “Preparing root canals: hands or handpieces” on Sunday at Hotel Baron.

The faculty of the course was Dr Vimal Sikri, an eminent endodontist from Government Dental College and Hospital, Amritsar. The course dealt with the latest techniques and instruments used in treating the diseased pulp of the tooth. The faculty laid stress on usage of latest rotary instruments attached to various handpieces rather than traditional hand-used instruments in preparing the root canals for the treatment.

Sixtyfive delegates were given demonstration in latest techniques and instruments used in this procedure. In the second phase the delegates underwent rigorous training in performing root canal preparation on the extracted teeth using the rotary instruments under the guidance of the faculty. The instruments and infrastructure for the course was sponsored by Heraeus Kulzer Dental India Pvt Ltd. On the successful completion of the course all delegates received certificates of attendance from ICDD and Heraeus Kulzer.

Colgate Palmolive (India) Ltd was co-sponsor of the course. Dr Vimal Sikri was honoured by Dr Bhagwant Singh, Dr J.S. Judge, Dr Gajinder Singh and Dr J.S. Kharbanda, directors of the institute.
