Title: Hindsight 20/20 vision - When not to do Endodontics!


Diagnosis, prognosis assessment and inappropriate treatment planning are three of the most challenging aspects of endodontics: the clinician must predict success. Hence in today’s world, litigation also becomes an important issue in dentistry.
When a crack is suspected or is detected prior to endodontic therapy, extraction should also be considered and it is critical to obtain informed consent. At times when we come up with the best treatment option for the patient, we may fall into many grey areas and treatment dilemmas, which can make the scenario more difficult.  


Mehdi graduated with a Bachelor in Dental Surgery with distinction from the University of Otago (New Zealand) in 2002 and received his Doctorate of Clinical Dentistry (Endo) degree from the University of Melbourne in 2008. Mehdi has been actively involved in Endodontic teaching at various continued education levels, both nationally and internationally, and is a guest (clinical) lecturer at Sydney University, Melbourne University and Charles Sturt University (at an undergraduate and post-graduate level). Mehdi has obtained a number of publications in the field of forensic dentistry and Endodontics (resin based obturation material and fractured instruments). In 2000 Mehdi was awarded the Sir Allan Wilkinson award for the most worthwhile research in Medicine and Dentistry from the University of Otago, in 2001 he was awarded the International Association for Dental Research Young Researchers Award and in 2002 Mehdi received the Pierre Fauchard Academy Award of Merit. Mehdi is currently the  president of the Australian Asian Association of Dentists, Vice President of the Australian Society of Endodontology and a member of the Royal Australian College of Dental Surgeons in Endodontics, as well as being a peer reviewer for the Australian Endodontic Journal. He is the owner of Gentle Endodotnics with three locations in Sydney.
