    mmm I have no idea but speaking as a patient I do find it really worrying that they let students carry out root canals unsupervised. I understand you have to learn but I think it should only happen in a fully supervised setting otherwise someone could lose their tooth! In a supervised setting you would have someone there to remind you.

    You're welcome! You did post on the root canal section rather than dental students.

    Why are you posting on here instead of just asking your supervising DDS directly?
    If anything happens to the patient, that is on YOU.
    I'm a CDT and my husband is a retired dentist. If I knew where you were studying I would report this.

    Shame on you for speaking to a patient so rudely. Keep up your attitude and I can promise you that when you become a dentist and open up your own practice, it will fail miserably.

    There is no need to be rude, further behaviour like this will result in a ban.

    I may be a patient, but I do work for a health authority. Hence my concern about patient safety.. Best of luck in your career mmmm.

    No it's okay to do that don't worry
    Cavit doesn't block or do any harm to the cannals !

    Yes, the cotton is for the dentist's convenience, and can be a nice little breeding plug for the bacteria if you're a purist-type. But in the student world, maybe the convenience is a bigger priority. Geez, didn't the cotton whiz if you struck it with a high speed! :eek:
