Modern Endodontics and the CBCT

 by Dr. Bradley Ginzler

Timpano Steak House

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Introducing  our Guest Speaker
Dr. Ginzler attended the University of Michigan in 1996, and the University of Detroit-Mercy School of Dentistry 2000. He furthered his education with a GPR at UCLA Hospital in Westwood, California in 2001. After practicing general dentistry in suburban Los Angeles for nearly 4 years he returned to the University of Detroit-Mercy School of Dentistry to obtain both his Endodontic certificate and Masters degree in 2006.

In his specialty training Dr. Ginzler was introduced to Dr. Gary Carr and TDO ("The Digital Office”). Since the introduction it has been Dr. Ginzler's professional goal to run a paperless, state-of-the-art endodontic office following the principles and teaching of the amazing clinicians world-wide who subscribe to the "TDO way".

In 2010 Dr. Ginzler began integrating 3D images from the then Kodak, now Carestream 9000 into his endodontic practice. Reading 3D images for 7 years, Dr. Ginzler believes CBCT imaging in conjunction with the surgical operating microscope are critical to today’s endodontic practice.
