Lecture recommended for dentists
The lecture will concentrate on three areas:
- How to incorporate new materials science, such as bioceramic technology, into your practice.
- How to perform root canal therapy in such a manner that you actually enhance the long-term prognosis of the tooth.
- How to perform endodontics in such a manner that you can offer your patients a predictable long-term natural dentition option as an alternative to implants.
Included in the lecture component will be a thorough discussion concerning access, non-surgical ultrasonic use, instrumentation techniques, and a new bioceramic obturation method. Particular emphasis will be placed on developing endodontic synchronicity between a machined preparation and a laser-verified master bioceramic-coated cone.
- How endodontics can be precision-based.
- The importance of preserving coronal and radicular dentin.
- The multiple benefits of developing “endodontic synchronicity” between a machined preparation and a master cone.
- The multiple advantages of performing a constant .04 taper preparation.
- The new “synchronized hydraulic condensation” technique featuring the use of bioceramic technology.
- How the use of bioceramics can improve your surgical results.
- Most importantly of all, how to perform endodontics in such a manner that you do not compromise the long-term retention of the tooth. In fact, learn how to do endodontics so that you actually enhance the long-term prognosis of the tooth.

Hands-on workshop recommended for dentists
In order to participate in the hands-on session, it is necessary to complete the lecture program.Limited to 40 attendees.
For the ultimate Real World Experience® attendees are encouraged to bring two to four accessed, extracted teeth.
The hands-on session will provide participants the opportunity to use “Real World Endo” techniques and to witness first-hand how they can change the way they practice endodontics. The hands-on session will be conducted using either accessed teeth (the preferred method) or blocks. In addition to instrumentation techniques, a demonstration will be done showing how to perform “synchronized hydraulic condensation.” Time will also be dedicated to “Preventing the Separation of Rotary Files,” and the use of piezo electric ultrasonics will be available at all times.
- How to properly use the EndoSequence file.
- The correct way to use an ultrasonic, in the pursuit of hidden canals.
- The ease of use associated with “synchronized hydraulic condensation.”
- How to create synchronicity between instrumentation and obturation.
- The multiple benefits of bioceramic technology in endodontics.
Dr. Alex Fleury received his Masters of Science Degree in Oral Biology and Cerficate in Endodontics from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. He received his DDS Degree in 1984 from the University of São Paulo. Dr. Fleury served as Director of Predoctoral Endodontics for 6 years at both Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine in Florida and Baylor College of Dentistry. He currently serves as Assistant Professor at Baylor College of Dentistry, working with Endodontic Residents.
Of particular pride is being named the recipient of the “Edward E. Osetek Award” for best new Endodontic Educator of the year by the American Association of Endodontists. In addition, Dr. Fleury is honored to have been the recipient of the “Richard F. Weiss Achievement Award presented by the Louis I. Grossman Study Club (University of Pennsylvania). He also served on the Scientific Advisory Board of the Journal of Endodontics, and as well serves as the Director of Educational Resources for Real World Endodontics.
Dr. Fleury is currently in the full-time private practice of Endodontics in Dallas, Texas.
