Eugene A. Pantera, Jr., DDS, MS

Eugene A. Pantera, Jr., DDS, MSEugene A. Pantera, Jr., DDS, MS, is Clinical Associate Professor Emeritus of Endodontics at the University at Buffalo. Now retired, he is former Director of the Advanced Program in Endodontics and former Director of the Division of Endodontics. In addition to peer reviewed publications and presentations, he reviews submissions for Decisions in Dentistry, the Journal of Endodontics, Journal of Dental Education, and the New York State Dental Journal. Dr. Pantera presents seminars nationally and internationally and lectures to all levels of dental and graduate students on varied endodontic topics.

A Fellow of the American College of Dentists, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the International College of Dentists, Dr. Pantera practiced general dentistry for quite a few years before climbing the ivory tower and appreciates the problems faced “in the front lines.”

Dr. Pantera is not associated with, employed by, or has stock in any manufacturer, supplier, or retailer of dental instruments, materials, or software.


It is amazing the amount of new stuff that comes on the market in a year. Over the years, we have seen an evolution of rotary instruments, irrigating solutions and techniques, retreatment techniques, anesthesia, perforation repair materials, obturation materials, and so on, and, when all is said and done … the basic concepts and instruments are more than enough to treat most endodontic cases.


At the conclusion of this presentation, the participant will better able to:

  • Review instrumentation
  • Understand basic irrigation
  • Find canals
  • Nice things about CBCT
  • Understand importance of records and impact on litigation
  • Review technique for vital pulp caps.
  • Discuss benefits of Endo v Implants v Retreatment
  • Discuss anesthesia.
  • Execute emergency treatment.
