“Micro-Endodontic Challenges of 2023”

Wednesday, April 26th – 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Joseph A. Bruckner, DDS

Dr. Joseph A. Bruckner received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology from Yeshiva University, where he graduated cum laude. He then graduated from the Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine where he received the Quintessence Award for excellence in academics and research achievements. Dr. Bruckner earned his endodontic specialty certificate working with some of the most highly-regarded practitioners in the field at Stony Brook as well. Thirteen years ago, upon completion of his endodontic specialty program, Dr. Bruckner opened a private practice limited to Endodontics in Roslyn, NY. His practice focuses on Modern Micro-Endodontics and incorporates the latest techniques in diagnostics and endodontic treatment.

Randy N. Simon, DDS

Dr. Randy N. Simon graduated from NYU College of Dentistry with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree, and was then accepted directly into NYU’s Advanced Education Program in Endodontics. He trained under internationally known faculty, concentrating on evidence-based endodontic treatment with interest in pain relief, infection control, and traumatic injuries. Over the course of his time at NYU, Dr. Simon participated in research, and was a co-author of a presentation at the American Association of Endodontists Annual Meeting. Dr. Simon continues to work as a Clinical Faculty Attending for the current NYU Endodontic Residents, helping them train to become the newest generation of clinicians. Dr. Simon is Board-Eligible for the American Board of Endodontics. He takes a special interest in the diagnostic process, discussing each phase of the treatment with his patients to ensure they are at ease, comfortable, and knowledgeable about their care.

“Micro-Endodontic Challenges of 2023”

This lecture will discuss the significant advancements of modern day endodontics. Several challenging endodontic case scenarios are extremely difficult to manage even while using the microscope and CBCT guidance and are practically untreatable without it. These scenarios include but are not limited to: difficult tooth morphology, successful treatment of calcified and previously untreated canals, separated instrument removal, silver point retrieval, implant screw removal, and surgical endodontic treatment. In addition, we will discuss the evolution of modern day endodontic theory and techniques. Cases will be presented by use of digital radiographs, still images, as well as short video clips. Citation and discussion of classical as well as current literature will be included throughout.
