EMERGENCY ON-CALL ENDO 568 The general objective of Endo 568 (Clinical Emergencies in Endodontics) is toinstruct the endodontic resident in the timely treatment and management of theemergency patient. It is also the objective of this course to provide the resident with thenecessity for consultation with faculty, other residents, and undergraduate students inthe diagnosis and treatment of endodontic emergencies. Each resident will participate in an emergency on-call rotation. The on-callschedule is for a one week period starting at 8:00 A.M. Monday and ending at 5:00 P.M.Friday. The resident on-call must be available from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. when clinicis in session. While on-call you may schedule consults, recalls, and/or other appointments thatrequire a short visit. Your primary responsibility, however, for the week will be toprovide consultation and/or treatment for referred endodontic emergency patients.Therefore, routine cases from your patient pool must not be scheduled during therotation. The first name on the on-call schedule is the primary on-call resident. Thesecond name is the backup. The primary resident has the responsibility to make surethere is always prompt emergency coverage during the week. If you are in class, will beoff campus at an assignment, or are sick, you must arrange coverage during yourabsence. On call schedules are not to be changed without first notifying Dr. Fouad. The backup resident may schedule “routine” appointments (no surgicaltreatment) with the understanding that they may be responsible for assisting withemergency patients as needed. It is the responsibility of the backup call resident to beavailable for the primary call resident. Policy Document with Pediatric DentistryThis policy summarizes decisions from a meeting and subsequent deliberations thattook place in the spring of 2008, regarding the process of referral of emergency patientsfrom the Pediatric Dentistry Program, to the Endodontics Program. The policy is asfollows: • Emergencies are patients who have severe pain and/or swelling, and must be managed the day of the emergency or the following day • The Pediatric Dentistry resident will have taken periapical and bitewing radiographs before they refer the patient • The point person for referral is Sue Hickson (or other front desk personnel if she is not there) • She will identify the Endodontic resident on call and the second on call, (or any resident who is free because his/her patient failed to come in) and their availability throughout the day to manage the emergency 17
• She will also enter all emergencies in the schedule so that Axium is the ultimate source that describes the actual schedule. • If both endodontic residents on call are not available (either scheduled with other patients all day --including C3 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays-- or have a class that must be attended), the Pediatric Dentistry resident will see the patient to perform diagnosis and emergency care, such as a pulpotomy of a vital pulp. • If there are disagreements or confusion in any way, the Endodontic faculty on the floor should make the final decision about the plan of action. • Endodontic consults are not emergencies, and they need to be addressed to the faculty or resident who is teaching on the clinic floor. • Even if the Pediatric resident first discusses the case with the Endodontic resident, to allow better communication and optimize the care of the patient, the pediatric resident still has to go to the front desk for the staff to place the patient in the schedule. This way it is easy for all concerned to examine the schedule prospectively or retrospectively to describe operations in the clinic. • Emergencies also include acute trauma and these, as well as all trauma cases, can be managed by pediatric and endodontic residents working collaboratively or individually, as the case indicates and depending on availability, as they are within the domain of both specialties, and are excellent teaching cases for all concerned. • Additionally, we discussed that if there are patients who have special management needs such as the use of nitrous oxide, the Endodontics resident could take a cart with instruments and supplies to the Pediatric Dentistry Clinic, and manage the patients there in collaboration with Pediatric Dentistry residents.Pager Numbers: Peter Bellingham (410) 389-1974 Ian Bennett (410) 389-1731 Derek Ego Osuala (410) 389-1947 Dr. Joshua Fein (410) 389-1952 Maheeb Jaouni (410) 389-1940 Liang Li (410) 389-1325 Adam Orgel (410) 389-1994 Jared Seltzer (410) 389-1951 Felicity Shelton (410) 389-1944 Program Director (A.

Special Patient Clinic Rotation (Mondays 9:00 – 12:00)The Special Patient Clinic rotation begins on July 6, 2009, and ends on June 30, 2010. Itstarts at 9:00 a.m. and is over at 12:00 p.m. each Monday.A second year endodontic resident will be assigned the responsibility of treating the specialendodontic needs of patients in the Special Patient Clinic. The Special Patient Clinic Staffwill notify the assigned resident when a patient is in need of endodontic services andtogether they will schedule the appointments. Dr. Meeks and her staff will assume theresponsibility of orienting the assigned resident to the Special Patient Clinic. The incomecollected from the procedures will be credited to the Special Patient Clinic account. Allcases treated will be credited toward the endodontic resident’s case requirements, providedthat they are entered in MER.Dr. Liang (Kevin) Li: July 6 – October 30Dr. Peter Bellingham November 2 – February 26Dr. Ian Bennett: March 1 – June 25 Veterans Administration Rotation (Thursday 1:00 – 5:00 until September 3 and Tuesdays 12:30 - 4:30 thereafter) The Baltimore Veterans Medical Center rotation begins July 6, 2009 and ends June25, 2010. The general objective of this rotation is to provide the resident with theopportunity to 1) treat a medically compromised patient population in a hospital setting, and2) treat geriatric patients in a hospital setting. This rotation also provides for the resident theopportunity to interact with other hospital staff dentists and physicians.Dr. Ian Bennett: July 6 – October 3Dr. Liang (Kevin) Li: November 2 – February 26Dr. Peter Bellingham March 1 – June 25In both of these rotations, it is the assigned resident’s responsibility to make surethat there are no unforeseen conflicts, to resolve conflicts if they arise, and that theschedules are communicated and approved by the faculty in charge at theselocations.

Case Presentation/Treatment Planning Thursdays 8-10, Room 5105 ENDODONTICS 568 B AND D The objectives of this course are for residents to 1) develop a sound rationale forclinical treatment and 2) defend their course of treatment based on scientific literature. Theuse of the literature along with clinical experience will be stressed in providing a rationale fortreatment. A critical review of each presented case will be accomplished through the activeparticipation of both residents and faculty. One full-time faculty member will be presentduring the seminars. Other full-time and part-time faculty will attend as schedules permit.Residents will present their cases in the following manner.1. The first 60 minutes of the session will be devoted to presenting difficult cases, including all surgeries, for which treatment has not been rendered yet. The purpose of this treatment planning is to obtain consensus on the treatment plan.2. The second hour will be dedicated to case presentations by residents of cases previously treated, preferably cases with documentation of initial outcome/recall3. All cases must be thoroughly documented in the Maryland Endodontics Record, and presented from that program.4. Digital or digitized radiographs and photographs are to be correctly projected and are to be of good quality and of diagnostic value.5. Each presenter will have a title slide and relevant highlighted topics for each case.6. Title slides and a pertinent literature review and handout for each resident will be provided.7. Scanned pertinent drawings and photographs must be included in the presentation.8. All case histories are to be presented in a logical fashion.9. Each presenter will be expected to defend their course of treatment based upon the literature and clinical experience.10. All residents (Years I, II and III) are expected to participate in the discussion, etc.11. Evaluation will be accomplished by the attending faculty.
Case Presentation Guidelines/Format (All cases will be presented directly from the Maryland Endodontic Record - MER)1. Patient Description: Age, gender, vocation, etc.2. Chief Complaint: In the patient’s own words3. Medical History: Synopsis of medical history; report allergies or infections; drugs or medications prescribed or self-determined. Did this information alter your plan of treatment?4. Dental History: Synopsis of dental history pertinent to endodontic therapy5. Clinical Evaluation a. clinical examination b. diagnostic tests c. radiographic interpretation6. Pretreatment Diagnosis7. Endodontic Treatment Plan a. emergency (if applicable) b. definitive c. alternative d. restorative e. prognosis8. Clinical procedures performed9. Postoperative diagnosis and evaluation10. Prognosis11. Restorative recommendation12. Self-assessment of quality of endodontic treatment and case management13. Follow-up plan • The presentation of an endodontic case should include high quality preoperative, working and postoperative radiographs, digital images and photographic documentation (where available), and thorough documentation of all histories, clinical examination, tests, diagnoses, treatment, and post-treatment evaluation. Each resident should be prepared to answer questions about any aspect of a case being presented based on the literature or textbook material.
CLINICAL ENDODONTICS ENDO 569 The objective of this course is to provide the endodontic resident with the necessaryclinical and diagnostic skills to treat uncomplicated and complicated non-surgical andsurgical endodontic cases. Residents are expected to be conscientious, professional,efficient and productive in their treatment of patients. They are also expected to applythe most recent and best available evidence in patient care, consistent with what iscovered in other didactic courses. All patient appointments, will be made by, and scheduled at the postgraduatereceptionist’s desk. Appointments will be made at 8:00 and 10 am for 2-hour morningblocks, and at 1:00 and 4:30 pm for 2.5 hour appointments in afternoon and evening. Thirdyear residents must be scheduled for 1.5-hour appointments. The Endodontics PG clinic isanticipated to function two evenings per week: on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. One-hourclinic time slots will be set aside for recall or brief treatment visits. Endodontic surgery,which requires a 2-hour time slot, must be scheduled at 8 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. At the completion of all treatment, the resident must walk the patient to the receptiondesk and hand the receptionist a routing control form listing treatment provided. This mustbe done for all appointments irrespective of whether the procedure is billable or not. All residents must review their surgical cases and other difficult cases in theTreatment Planning seminar, and also at least 24 hours in advance with the attendingfaculty for that particular surgical procedure, if the faculty member was not present at theseminar. It is the policy of the department that a faculty member will remain in theendodontic clinic during the entire surgical or other high risk procedures. A faculty membermay prevent a resident from a performing a surgical procedure on a patient if this policy isnot followed. All residents are to be available for overflow of emergency patients for assistingclassmates if their patient fails for any given appointment. If a resident must leave theDental School during clinic times, they are to notify the attending faculty member of theirwhereabouts before leaving, and carry the pager at all times. ENDODONTIC TECHNIQUE ENDO 569B The objective of this course is to introduce the resident to various endodontictechniques. At the conclusion of the course the resident should be able to (1) performacceptable access openings on any tooth, (2) accurately determine working length, (3)shape and clean the root canal system, and (4) obturate any root canal with lateralcondensation, or vertical condensation technique. Plastic model teeth will be treated in alaboratory setting.Course Requirements and Laboratory Projects:Project 1. Access openings on the following 14 Acadental teeth (teeth mounted inAcadental Mannequin system). All access preps must be performed under the OperatingMicroscope, and must be photographed.

Use an ultrasonic tip to extend a grove from MB orificelingually to ML or MB2 orifice in maxillary molars under the microscope. Use the ultrasonicsto do the same from MB to ML canal in mandibular molars. Document additional (fifth)canals located. All images of access preparations are to be downsized into an SVGA(800 x 600) image, with the access filling the image, and copied into the MarylandEndodontic Record (MER), regardless of who you review your cases with.Project 2. Root canal preparation in 7 plastic premolars and 6 plastic molars using the following instrumentation systems: • Hand instrumentation with step back preparation 2 anterior and 2 molars • Profile instruments 2 premolars and 2 molars • EndoSequence 2 premolars and 2 molars • ProTaper system 2 molarsProject 3. Place calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)2) in 2 premolars and 2 molars, and take radiographs to assure adequate density. Then remove Ca(OH)2 in preparation for Project 4.Project 4. Fill the root canals in 4 plastic premolars and 8 molars with the followingObturation techniques: • Lateral condensation with gutta percha and AH-plus in 2 premolars and 4 molars (1 in each of the instrumentation techniques) • Warm compaction with System B/Obtura or Calamus and AH-plus in 2 premolars and 4 molars (1 in each of the instrumentation techniques)Project 5. Remove filling material using combination of GG burs and double speedProfile on 2 premolars and 2 molars (1 of each of the obturation techniques)For Projects 4 and 5, postoperative digital buccal-lingual and mesial-distal radiographs are required for all teeth. These will be copied from the Romexis system into Maryland Endodontic Record (MER) at the end of the exercises, regardless of who you reviewed your cases with. Endodontic faculty is assigned to assist you in preparing and obturating the teethduring the assigned periods. Each resident will prepare the laboratory projects forpresentation to the Course Director at the conclusion of the course. Patients will beassigned to Year I residents at the successful completion of this course. It is anticipatedthat this course and all exercises will end by August 28, 2009.
RESEARCH IN ENDODONTICS ENDO 576B The objective of this course is to provide the endodontic resident with the backgroundand the necessary skills to perform an original research project. Specific objectives of thiscourse are to:1) design an original research project protocol,2) perform a scientific experiment under controlled conditions,3) write an original manuscript suitable for publication based on the results of the student.For first year residents, first drafts of protocols are due on December 4, 2009 forreview by both the research advisor and Program Director.Grants to the AAE Foundation are due February 5, 2010.The deadline for presentations at the AADR/IADR/AAE Meetings (Oral and Poster researchas well as Table Clinics) are in October of the year prior to the meeting (February for IADR2010).All research projects must be completed and written up as a manuscript and submitted forpublicationl prior to graduation from the program. The deadline for this is April 15 of theyear of graduation. Failure to meet this date will delay graduation from the Program.

Topical Literature Seminars ENDODONTICS 588A ENDODONTICS 588 A AND C, ENDODONTICS 589 A AND C The general objective of this course is to provide endodontic residents with a solidbiological and experimental background of the endodontic literature so they can betterevaluate current and future treatment. Specific objectives for this course are listedindependently with each seminar reading list.A resident will be assigned to moderate each literature review seminar. This resident willwork with a faculty mentor on generating a list of citations that include classic as well ascontemporary papers. Each resident will be responsible for studying the general readingsfor each seminar. Each resident will be assigned to write an abstract of the paper, and readto the level of being able to report on another paper. Therefore, each paper will have anabstract writer and a reader. There will be a number of Classic papers, and a number offrequently cited papers that are read by everyone. These will be designated as Classic or Allrespectively. Abstracts are to be in the Classic Literature Database online, and printed anddistributed to all faculty and residents on Monday of every week. The abstract shouldinclude the following: • A classification of the paper on the Hierarchy of Evidence (Systematic review, randomized clinical trials etc.) • Research problem or hypothesis • Purpose • Methodology (including groups, sample size characteristics, controls, data analysis etc.) • Results (including statistically significant findings) • Author’s conclusions • Critique and synopsis of the paperResidents will be randomly called upon to report on 1 or more abstract by the faculty. It isexpected that postgraduate resident will gradually begin to identify and recall authors withtopics, titles, and results, etc.An Oral Examination (December 23, 2009) will be given in the Fall Semester. Oral andwritten examinations will be given to the first and second year residents in June, 2010. Anoral examination will be conducted for graduating third year residents by two externalexaminers in June, 2010. These residents will also be strongly encouraged to takethe written ABE examination in Spring 2010. Any resident who achieves less than apassing grade in either examination will be required to remediate or possibly repeat thecourse before advancement to Year II/III, or graduation. All written and oral examinationsmust be successfully completed before a resident can successfully graduate from theProgram.
