Luca Moranzoni and Jon Cowie

Specialists in Endodontics

Jon and Luca are both GDC registered Specialists in Endodontics. They have trained over 1000 dentists with Contemporary Endodontics. Their focus is a passion for endo education relevant for day-to-day clinical dentistry. Their teaching embraces the philosophy of dentine preservation, a key concept in modern restorative endodontics.

They work in specialist private practice in Bath and have been taking endodontic referrals for over a decade. Jon trained at Kings College and Luca at The Eastman so they bring a broad background of training to the table but have a common ethos of patient care and clinical endodontics.

They look forward to welcoming you on the course.

The programme (3 days)

This programme is an intensive 3-day course where theory and hands-on are blended to ensure continuity and carry-through into your clinic. This is a clinically focused course for the modern dental practitioner.

  • Small group learning (MAXIMUM 8 DELEGATES)
