Take your dentistry to the next level.
An endodontic-focused community for dentists seeking to perfect their skills, improve their practice, and enhance their patient care.
You’ve trained and studied hard to earn your degree.
You’ve gained a base of patients who love you.
You always aim to treat them with the highest levels of care.
And yet there’s even more you can do to enhance your practice.
The more teeth you save,
the stronger your practice will be.
When dentists are better equipped with deeper understanding of how to treat infected teeth, they gain happier patients, shorter chair time, more profitable practices, and greater confidence in their own skills.
I want that to be you.
When you learn how to prepare for unexpected case outcomes, you’ll gain loyal patients, and more.
There simply aren’t enough specialists in the world to handle the root canal caseload on their own.
We endodontists need your help as general dentists to perform endodontic treatments.
With a lack of exposure to endodontics in dental school, and only a handful of available continuing education options,
a new way forward is needed.
A realistic way to learn virtually, on your own time, and as a member of a community, to improve your patient outcomes.
Which Dentist Are You?
The Dentist Who Thinks Endo’s Not For You
You’re smart, driven, and more than a little busy. Why would you want to add endo to your workload?
But you’re already practicing endodontics!
Endo is more than just root canals. Every time you diagnose pain, you’re doing endo!
E-School’s online modules fit your busy schedule to help you provide the best patient care you can.
The General Dentist With Your Own Practice
You’re building your practice the right way: by caring deeply about your patients.
When it comes to endo, you have the connections to ensure your patients are taken care of. But continuing education could increase your revenue and help you offer even better care.
The focused E-School curriculum will help you generate more income with fewer retreatments.
The Associate With Upward Momentum
You dream of owning your own practice someday, and you thrive on challenging cases that test your knowledge and skills.
But your training hasn’t prepared you for all the “what ifs” of real life, and you’re eager to enhance your confidence when it comes to endodontics.
In E-School, you’ll perfect your skills, increase your confidence, and build your support network.
The Recent Dental School Graduate
You’ve earned your DDS, and you’re only a few steps away from treating patients every day.
Only, now you’re overwhelmed by looking for a job. And after you land one, the prospect of putting what you’ve learned to practice is feeling a little bit scary. You’re not sure you’re fully prepared.
E-School will serve as impressive supplemental training that will put you ahead of your competition.
The Dentist Who Wants To Perfect His or Her Skills
You have a thriving practice and plenty of experience, but sometimes tough cases throw you for a loop.
You know you could benefit from brushing up on your skills, rounding out your endo knowledge, and learning from an endodontist who’s seen everything.
E-School’s trainings and templates will fill in the gaps in your training and make your practice more profitable.
General dentists (just like you!) will learn how to…
…Understand which cases you can handle and which to refer to a specialist
…Know which teeth can be saved and which should be extracted
…Perform root canals with even more finesse
…Inform your patients of their options and guide them through every stage of the process
…Increase your profitability by decreasing chair time, refunds, and billing complications

I’m Sonia Chopra, DDS, practicing endodontist…
and I’m on a mission to help you improve your confidence with endodontics — and your patients’ experience.
Born without eight teeth and no stranger to cavities, implants, and bridges, I was always meant to become a dentist. But it wasn’t until an endodontist finally relieved me of a months-long infection through a root canal that I understood the importance of saving teeth.
The power to keep your patients healthy and happy — and out of such agony — lies within you and your commitment to deepening your understanding of endodontics.
Let’s better the world together, one tooth at a time.
Learning with a purpose, and increasing quality of care, worldwide.
Be a part of our mission to grow into something bigger.

Module 2: Pain Management & Antibiotics
Ask any patient what makes for a great dentist. They won’t think about your degrees, certifications, or even prices. Instead, they’ll judge you by your ability to keep them relatively pain-free and ensure successful outcomes. That’s why this module is so vital to your reputation, your relationship with your patients, and the success of your practice.
- The number one key to proper pain management, so you can keep your patients happy.

Module 4: Cracked Teeth and Vertical Root Fractures
Even with all your careful diagnostic work, cracked teeth can really change the game. They can be difficult to spot, and they can make it difficult for patients to pinpoint the source of their pain. However, they can almost always be saved — whereas vertical root fractures cannot.
- Why cracks create problems and what causes them, so you properly diagnose your patients.
- Clues that a tooth is actually cracked, helping you give your patients the right diagnosis the first time before you unnecessarily condemn their tooth to be extracted.
- The exact protocol to use for patients where a crack with reversible pulpitis is suspected, removing the guesswork.

- How to get reimbursed when you’ve spent considerable time on a tooth only to discover it has to be extracted.
Module 5: Trauma and Resorption

- The endodontic applications of CBCT, including diagnostics, treatment, and follow-up.
- How understanding CBCT can improve outcomes and make you a more confident practitioner.
- Quick and easy steps to increase your confidence with CBCT — it doesn’t take much!
- How to leverage CBCT to discover the true cause of root canal failures so you know how to proceed.
- Ways to use CBCT to educate and communicate with your patients, so they have a deeper understanding of their own dental health.
