Course Description


Peter Raftery graduated from Trinity College Dublin in 2003. After a stint in general practice in Oxford, Peter began his specialist training in Endodontology at the Eastman Dental Hospital, London, in 2007. Upon completion of training Peter passed the endodontic exit exams from the Royal Colleges of London and of Edinburgh and has since worked in endodontic private practice in Portsmouth area. Peter established his own practice – Hampshire Endodontics – as well as the Hampshire Endodontic Study Club. Peter spends one day a week at the UPDA supervising Kings College London dental students.


GDPs able to offer simple surgical endodontics can instantly position themselves apart from most others. Those able to offer surgical endodontics can instantly increase their endodontic success rates – since less cases must be condemned as definitively failed. Recently published endodontic microsurgery success rates will surprise most delegates.


By attending this course the candidates will
1. learn about indications of surgical endodontics
2. discuss the armamentarium necessary for modern endodontic microsurgery
3. will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience of performing an apicectomy

Due to equipment restrictions places are limited for the hands-on element of this course, however, delegates are still able to attend for the theory element of the course.
