(0 review)

(DA5) Advanced series for DAs (RCT): Mastering Set up and assisting for Root canal treatment in adults and children

Practice Owners:  Never feel stressed again about the skill levels of your DA.  Relax and enjoy your dentistry, focus on the procedure and not on your assistant.

Stop stressing and thinking for your DA, or checking if they have set up everything you need for the RCT procedure, or whether they will be able to assist you.

We want you to focus on your dentistry.  Leave all the training to us at Just Excel.

If you are a busy practitioner and do not have the time or resources to train them yourself, then this course might interest you.

Let us equip your DA with these skills in 1 day and bring her up to speed with everything they need to know about assisting you well for RCT procedures

Remember, this is not taught in their basic DA certificate 3 programme, further training is needed.

Your DA will leave with worksheets, and checklists that they can implement immediately in your practice.

The best part is that we can tailor make this to your practice specifically if you tell us what systems and files you use.


Dental Assistants: Learn everything there is to learn about pulp therapy in adults and children and feel more confident at work

Advance your basic dental assisting skills to the next level.  Learn how to assist for some more complex procedures such as Root canal treatment.

In a busy practice there is very little time for training and getting you up to speed with these procedures. There are several stages and so many things that are needed to be remembered and set up.

This is stressful when you don’t know what to do or what is expected of you and you are thrown into the deep end.

Reduce stress, enjoy your job, create value. Advance your career.  Get the job satisfaction that you are after by advancing your skills and knowledge about everything you ever wanted to know about Root canal treatment.
