Dr Ove Peters 

Professor Ove A. Peters joined The University of Queensland School of Dentistry in mid-2020 as the professor of endodontics and convenor of postgraduate programs. Previously, he had held faculty positions in Heidelberg, Germany and Zurich, Switzerland, as well as at UCSF. Prior to his move to Australia, Professor Peters was a tenured professor and chair of the Department of Endodontics at University of the Pacific in San Francisco, CA, USA. He received his postgraduate education in endodontics at the University of Zurich and at UCSF; he is certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics.

Professor Peters has wide-ranging research expertise and has published more than 200 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, mainly related to endodontic technology and biology. He has authored two books and contributed to several leading textbooks in his areas of expertise.

Professor Peters has received, among other awards, the Hans Genet Award by the European Society of Endodontology, the Louis I. Grossman Award from the American Association of Endodontists and the Alan Docking Award by the IADR ANZ. He is also a Fellow of both the International and American Colleges of Dentistry.


This course will look at the spectrum of endodontic therapy in general dental practice from the viewpoint of outcomes. This approach asks for the desired endpoint of a planned treatment to provide not only estimates of achieving specific goals; in turn the approach then drives the need for information regarding some crucial steps in clinical practice.

In today’s focus on patient-centred outcomes, the ultimate goal is lifelong retention of teeth. For endodontics other goals are for example the management of acute dental pain and of course healing of apical periodontitis.

The European Society of Endodontology (ESE) recently published in-depth evidence and consensus-based guidelines that addressed which clinical approach is most effective, based on clinical presentation and diagnosis. This course will look at some of the specific recommendations provided by the S3 guidelines, relevant to the Trans-Tasman practice context.

The second part of the course will provide an update on what current technology can do for clinicians to optimize the desired outcomes. Specifically, we will discuss diagnosis, indications for and approach to vital pulp therapy as well as procedural challenges and their management in root canal treatment.

Contemporary materials and technology, such as calcium silicate-based sealers, flexible and dentine-preserving instruments and new motors will be highlighted. Collectively the course will provide interested clinicians with an updated view of what is achievable in endodontics.
