Important Update

Post Date: September 2014


Since 1983, I have had a fabulous run giving hands-on participation courses in Santa Barbara. I have greatly enjoyed conducting these programs and feel honored so many international doctors came to me for training.

With that being said, I have decided to discontinue offering the Santa Barbara HANDS-ON SEMINARS programs. I plan to continue my travel-related endodontic lectures, ongoing publications of clinical articles, website improvements, and research and development. Importantly, this will allow me to focus more energy toward advancing my Just-In-Time® educational platform on my website, along with conducting the "RUDDLE with the RESIDENTS" programs, in which I help train North American post-doctoral endodontic students.

With every ending there is a new beginning. I need to realistically balance what I can contribute to the future of endodontic education and quality time with my family. Thank you for your understanding, and a very special thank you to those who supported the program over the years... Dentsply Tulsa Dental, Zeiss, Carestream Dental/Kodak, ASI Medical, and the wonderful attendees whom I've had the pleasure meeting and forwarding endodontics together.

Please feel free to visit my Online Education and Just-In-Time® opportunities, as I am continually making exciting changes and adding new endodontic information. Alternatively, you or a small group of colleagues may be interested in my ONE-ON-ONE hands-on program sometime in the future.

I wish you great success in all you do or dream you can!

Best personal regards,
Cliff Ruddle
