Skill YOUR endo UP!

Prepare yourself to boost your knowledge!


EndoAcademy will launch in July 2015 a new format, 5 days intensive learning! This will create a new possibility to people abroad. All classes are in English and intended to be intense and with a lot of hands-on time! You will have 6 instrumentation systems to learn and MASTER! The course will take place in the Hotel Inspira Santa Marta right (in the center of the city, near the Historical old town and the São Jorge´s Castle) creating the perfect ambient for learning and spend some time visiting around! 

The EndoAcademy team has already mastered more than 200 dentists since 2012 in more than 14 ENDO courses!

Our team is formed by 3 Endodontists with teaching experience in the Universities all around the country. We gathered our knowledge, gathered our ideas and created a single MIND that can teach you and provide you the Endodontic skills your dream about.

When people describe our courses they say its almost like learning from friends, and thats why we call EndoAcademy, a FAMILLY!
