Martin D. Levin, DMD


Dr. Levin is Adjunct Professor of Endodontics and Chair of the Dean’s Council at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine.  He received the Alumni Award of Merit and is currently an ex officio member of the Board of Advisors.

He served as Co-Chair of the Joint Special Committee of the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) and the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology on the use of cone beam computed tomography in endodontics and served on the update committee.  Dr. Levin is currently appointed to the AAE’s Special Committee to Develop an Outcomes Consensus Conference.

Dr. Levin speaks on cone beam computed tomography, diagnosis and advanced technologies in endodontic practice. He is a contributor to “Pathways of the Pulp,” “Ingle’s Endodontics,” and “Cone Beam CT: Oral and Maxillofacial Diagnosis and Applications,” as well as the author of numerous other chapters and peer-reviewed articles. He also speaks about use of advanced technology related to anthropologic investigations conducted at Jamestown and Penn Museum.

Dr. Levin earned his degree in dental medicine from the University of Pennsylvania in 1972, where he was a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Society.  After completing his post-doctoral residency in endodontics at the University of Pennsylvania, he became a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics.  Dr. Levin is recognized as a Distinguished Practitioner in the National Academies of Practice in Dentistry. He is the Managing Director of EndoNet Consulting, LLC, a technology and teaching consultancy located in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

    Sample Presentation Title for Full Day Lecture
    Use of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) in Endodontics: Systematic Review of CBCT Scans and Volumetric Analysis of Apical Periodontitis©

    Presentation synopsis:
    Endodontic disease adversely affects quality of life and can produce significant morbidity in afflicted patients. Endodontic therapy depends on diagnostic radiographs and image-guided treatment. Periapical and panoramic radiography have been augmented by the recent introduction of limited field of view (FOV) high-resolution CBCT, allowing three-dimensional assessment of odontogenic and non-odontogenic lesions, root canal morphology, root and alveolar fractures, resorptive lesions and anatomy prior to surgery.

    Part I, Morning Session: Systematic Review of CBCT Scans
    This lecture will highlight the advantages of CBCT imaging considering recent research demonstrating a significant increase in lesion visualization when compared to periapical radiographs. There will be a special emphasis on systematic review of CBCT scans highlighting identification of apical periodontitis, principles of software navigation and identification of radiographic anatomy.

    Learning objectives
    At conclusion, participants should be able to:
    1. Describe the benefits of limited FOV, high-resolution CBCT in the identification of apical periodontitis.
    2. Understand how volumetric assessments can aid in the diagnosis of periapical pathosis when contradictory clinical signs and symptoms are present.
    3. Learn how to differentiate between several types of resorptive lesions and determine appropriate treatment.
    4. Explain reporting on cross-sectional images, methods and conventions.

    Part II Afternoon Session: CBCT Analysis in Endodontic Applications
    This lecture will highlight the advantages of CBCT imaging in endodontic applications by demonstrating basic principles of image interpretation and explain three-dimensional segmentation and volumetric analysis of apical periodontitis considering recent research. A detailed review of several CBCT scans will be conducted to demonstrate methods to maximize diagnostic yield.

    Learning objectives
    1. Describe lesions of endodontic origin based on principles of
    2. Understand how volumetric analysis can improve the accuracy of perioperative measurements in the assessment of osteolytic lesions.
    3. Learn how volumetric measurements can advance our understanding of endodontic treatment outcomes.
    4. Biologic effects of radiation dose relevant to endodontic CBCT assessments. Absorbed, equivalent and effective dose and their units.

    Two hour, half day, full day, or two day lecture, workshop available
