David Selouk

A specialist in endodontics, David Selouk embodies the perfect blend of clinical expertise and academic brilliance. 

His passion for saving natural teeth is complemented by his keen affinity for the latest endodontic tools and techniques. 

His hands-on approach, combined with a deep understanding of endodontic intricacies, positions him as a leading figure in the community. David’s role at the Eastman Dental Hospital further underscores his commitment to advancing the field through both practice and education. 

Under David’s guidance, students are assured of a learning experience that is rooted in real-world applications, ensuring they are well-equipped to handle the complexities of modern endodontics.

The course for me has been everything that I wanted and more.  

Richard’s unique ability to communicate difficult concepts into everyday English, as well as his wonderful sense of humour, all helped to make the course enjoyable, relaxed and easy to digest.

There are a few people I recommend as excellent teachers who go out of their way for their students, and Richard is one of them. His patience and humility were two traits that I admired and something that we as students, could benefit from. 

I would strongly recommend this course for anyone looking to improve their endodontic skills at whatever level of clinical practice they may be. I’m sure there will be something that you can take back into your day jobs and tips that can save you time and money with improvements in clinical outcomes.

Our Technology

Endodontic technology has evolved in leaps and bounds of the last few decades, yet many traditional academic bodies haven’t stayed ahead of this curve.

The Academy of Advanced Endodontics is firmly committed to technological advancement ensuring that the industry’s leading instruments are always at arms length.

Here’s an overview of the tools you’d be working with:

Laser-Assisted Root Canal Therapy

We’re the first in the UK to employ the SkyPulse™ endodontic laser with SWEEPS and R-SWEEPS capabilities. This technology, combined with our expertise, ensures narrower, cleaner and less damaged root canals, preserving the natural anatomy of the tooth.

Cone Beam CT Technology

Our on-site Veraview X800 cone beam CT scanner by Morita offers a 3D view of the tooth and surrounding bone, providing unparalleled clarity in diagnosis and treatment planning. As one of the first endodontic practices in the UK to adopt this technology, we’ve become a referral centre for complex cases, trusted by both endodontists and general practitioners.

Intraoral Scanner and 3D Printer

Using our intraoral scanner, we are able to take a digital impression of your teeth. With specialised design software, we construct a 3D-printed guide using our in-house printer. These guides can then be used during treatment to preserve tooth structure and make traditionally highly complex treatments simpler and more predictable.

Our collaboration with Morita, a renowned Japanese engineering company, has equipped us with the Tri Auto ZX2 handpiece. This revolutionary device combines the precision of the Morita apex locator with advanced motor capabilities, ensuring rapid, safe and efficient root canal preparations.

Rubber Dam

A testament to our commitment to precision and patient comfort, the rubber dam technique we employ has been a gold standard since 1836. It ensures a clean working environment within the tooth, preventing debris or water entering the patient’s mouth during the procedure.

The dental operative microscope has been widely employed in the field of dentistry, particularly in endodontics. This results in significant advancements in the effectiveness of root canal treatment and endodontic surgery. The high-quality magnification and illumination greatly enhance visualisation of the operative field, crucial for carrying out intricate endodontic procedures while preserving natural tooth structure.

Course Structure

This course structure moves participants from foundational knowledge to observation and finally to practical application, ensuring a holistic and thorough grasp of endodontics. The blend of theory, observation, and practice makes it a standout in the realm of endodontic training.

Phase 1


Starting with the “Boot Camp” ensures that every participant begins with a solid foundation. By immersing attendees in hands-on experiences, they become adept with the equipment and techniques essential for high-quality digital endodontics. This phase ensures that all participants are on the same page, regardless of their prior experience, creating a uniform baseline of knowledge and skills.


  1. CBCT, diagnosis and treatment planning
  2. Local anaesthesia
  3. Fast and effective Isolation
  4. Access cavities and canal location
  5. Minimal and safe canal preparation
  6. Laser-assisted irrigation
  7. Bioceramic obturation
  8. Permanent restorative seals. 
  9. Printed 3D guides
  10. Endodontic microsurgery

Phase 2


The second phase offers a unique opportunity to observe real-world scenarios. By watching expert endodontists in action, participants can witness the application of theoretical knowledge in real-life situations. This observational learning is invaluable, as it provides insights into patient interactions, problem-solving, and the nuances of advanced endodontic procedures. It’s a rare chance to learn not just the “how” but also the “why” behind each decision.

Phase 3


The final phase is where the magic truly happens. Participants transition from observers to practitioners, applying everything they’ve learned in a controlled environment. With expert supervision, they get immediate feedback, allowing for real-time adjustments and learning. This hands-on experience, combined with the safety net of expert guidance, instils confidence and competence in the participants.
