"When I took up this course, I did not know Sergiu personally. I blindly believed my trustworthy friend Siju. I did take up this course 2 years back with the belief that I was going to improve my microscopic photography. Once I was into the program, I soon realised the worth of it not only in terms of photography, but also the finesse in which Sergiu conducts himself. Not only I found a friend in Sergiu but also this program enhanced my clinical skills at many levels.
I strongly recommend this course to anyone who want to jump to the next level of their greatness."
Dr. Vivek Hegde
"I can't express my gratitude in words for Dr Siju for crafting a different person I am at present, with a different skillset and different mindset altogether. I first visited Dr Siju's Scope Training Centre in 2016 and I have never missed any course there since then.
And his continuous mentorship afterwards helped me a lot in elevating the level of my work drastically. Dr Siju's vast international exposure and work experience gives him edge over others in teaching and understanding his student's need and problems generally encountered. His academy is well equipped with all possible armamentarium and instruments we could think of at international level.
With his continuous mentorship I could convert my 20 yr old general practice into specialized one and gained immense confidence treating complicated cases like Instrument Retrieval, Perforation repairs, open apex cases, handling large radiolucency etc with ease and generating a referral practice too. Few of my cases are posted on my FB page, Endohaveli and EndoAddiction group on Facebook. That I could do all because of him.
So, I would highly recommend his academy for anybody who is looking to bring his/her practice to a next level.
Thanks again to Dr Siju and his team."
Dr. Sumit Bhatnagar
"I had been using DOM from past six years but still I was facing problems with documentation. My continuous pursuit to enhance the same ended at Dr. Siju's The Microscope Training Centre. The centre is very well equipped which gives a versatile exposure to participants from hands on through DOM to the materials being used. I would like to add Dr. Sergiu is great mentor for advanced course along with Dr. Siju. Best part about the course is that both are very much accessible post course so one gets continuous mentoring. We had a great time at his centre, learning & fun both combined."
Dr. Vijita Mehta
"Dr Siju Jacob’s Microscope training centre inspired me to rethink the way I practice dentistry. It changed me from a sceptic who would have been happy with using a dental loupe to one who wouldn’t settle for anything less than a microscope. The training centre had everything perfectly organised… not a second of my two-day basic course or the 2 days of advanced course was wasted… though very intensive …” what a great two days” is what I would say.
We got to work with the best of the equipment’s…Dr Siju with his immense experience with the operating microscope, made the sessions highly interesting and interactive….and his mentoring continues even now…... Dr Siju is a great clinician with remarkable training skills.
Once I got back, I knew how I would implement the micro endo concepts because I already did it in the class! "
Dr. Lekshmy Devi
"Having completed my MDS in Endodontics in 1997 I was able to purchase a microscope only in 2015. But the training I got from Dr Sijus centre in 2017 really helped me understand what I am seeing in the scope and what to do with it. Dr Sergiu and Dr Siju made me realise the importance of healing rather than the technique in Endodontics. I strongly recommend the courses conducted by Dr Siju for everyone who is clinically inclined."
Dr. Madhu Mathews
"I did the “microscope course” in Bangalore a year ago, I did it because
a) I am an endodontist,
b) I was about to set up my own clinic and I wanted to know about the clinic set up for a microscope in clinic.
To my surprise the course was amazing, we got straight down to using the scope after a small theory about it and the course is also gives an idea if at all you need it or not in your practice.
Dr siju is articulate, crisp and clear in his teaching and view point about using scope and clinical knowledge. He was approachable and helpful even after the course in planning the layout of my clinic.
It’s a course I feel one needs to take to experience different perspective to conventional root canal treatment."
Dr. Nikhil Jambagi
" was introduced to the dental operating microscope as part of my training for MSc in Endodontics at Kings College London. However, I was not confident enough to implement it to my practice here in Muscat and was on the lookout for a comprehensive training which would help me to introduce the microscope to my practice. Dr Siju s exclusive training centre in Bangalore was the best that I could find as it was well equipped and the course was conducted in small batches thereby providing personal attention to each participant. Dr Siju is an expert in this field and was very keen on sharing his expertise with us. The 2-day course simplified the use of the microscope for me and gave me the confidence to use it in my practice. He also helped me in setting up the microscope in my clinic by providing valuable inputs.
The best part of this course was that Dr Siju is very much approachable and is always keen on updating us. I got a chance to do a course on instrument retrieval and photography conducted by Sergiu Nicola who regularly conducts advanced courses at this centre and this helped me a lot for managing referral cases as well as for documentation.
I am very thankful to Dr Siju and team for giving me the confidence to use the dental operating microscope in my practice."
Dr. Jibu Cherian
"It is an honour for me to write a testimonial for my mentor who has been not only a wonderful guide but also an amazing person born with golden heart. My journey with microscopes began at the very best Dr Siju’s the Microscope training Centre in 2017 and since then there has been no looking back, definitely tough but an amazing journey in the world of magnification. Dr Siju’s constant mentorship and guidance at every milestone be it selecting the scope, installing the scope, planning the scope room and then problems we face when finally start working with it makes every tough step easy. Because I know that Siju sir is always there to help me and guide me in case I have any trouble gives me confidence to go ahead and challenge tough cases. Dr Siju is an awesome mentor with great patience and enthusiasm to teach. In case you are looking to join the world of magnification right way then don’t miss out any chance to learn from him. HE IS THE BEST."
Dr. Disha Agarwal
"I have been following Dr.Siju Jacob's interesting lectures and his impeccable cases from my first year of PG, however it was in the year 2016, I got the opportunity to learn the basics microscopic endodontics under his guidance. His immense knowledge of the subject, clinical expertise and cordial approach towards the students makes it easier to learn.
He is a perfect balance of being a clinician and a teacher of international acclaim.
An exclusive microscope training and documentation at the center followed by problem based learning, case based explanations through the microscope forum mentors dentists/Endodontist in improving their skill and standard of working.
Being a part of both the basic as well as advanced microscope training has given me confidence to handle scope and improving my clinical skills.
A good teacher is a master of simplification and Siju sir has an in born talent to explain and demonstrate things in a very simplified way.
I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of his course.
Thank you sir for being an inspiration."
"I still remember the first time I went for Dr. Siju’s course, the first day everything felt impossible. The calm, humble environment with light music and sir coming every time and saying this abnormal feeling is absolutely normal so go ahead and do it. That made a huge difference...! From sharing his own genuine experiences to the sheer drive and motivation he instills and to go on with the follow ups to keep you on your toes. That's something nobody would do with their busy schedules. So much so that when I went back to the do the course after 2yrs... Things were still the same or even better! The motivation was like never before and it's truly helped me to imbibe so much more in my practice in relation to micro endodontics. To know sir and his faculty is always there with the promptest response gives a sense of ease in your day to day micro endo practice... So would highly recommend the course with the most humble, talented and amazingly friendly Siju sir and his faculty.
Would owe them for a start that would have been impossible otherwise!! A Genuine thank u to you sir..."
Dr. Esha Parikh
"This is one of the finest courses I have attended so far. Dr Siju is a passionate teacher and a great mentor who always encourages his students on improving their clinical skills. Overall an excellent course which is well organized with lots of useful techniques. I would highly recommend this course without any reservations who genuinely want to upgrade their skills.
Thank you, Dr Siju, for your invaluable mentoring which is the most unique advantage of attending this course."
Dr. Kavita Tarale
"I had been doing my general practice since 2011, but later in my career met Dr. Siju Jacob sir in Nov 2015 at Microscope training centre, it was an eye opening course to me, for the first time had experienced such detailed way of doing a root canal treatment and I was amazed looking at how we work under microscope, it change my way of performing or executing a treatment from minimal access to final restoration.
It was my career turning point at Microscope training centre under the guidance and mentoring of Siju sir, he is a super humble person with the world class facilities and well-equipped training centre.
I am fortunate to be trained under Siju sir and my Microscopic journey is amazingly awesome."
Dr. Deepesh Bandari
"The Microscope training centre has helped me upgrade my skills and make me a better clinician. Dr. Siju has not just created a training centre but a platform for like-minded individuals to interact, share ideas and improve themselves. I wish Dr. Siju & The microscope training centre all the best and hope it sets a benchmark for other training institutes/centres."
Dr. Trishul Gangadhar
"Sergio Nicola is one of the best Endodontic clinicians in the world that i have witnessed. His course on retreatment and documentation is a must do for any endodontist who wants to evolve himself/herself. I had the privilege of attending his course and found it to be clinically pertinent and enlightening. His clinical acumen and passion to share his immense clinical wisdom is commendable. A must do program for all specialists with a passion for endodontics!"
V. Gopi Krishna
"I had the privilege of being trained in micro-endodontics by Dr. Siju Jacob at the Microscope Training Centre, Bangalore. I took both the beginners and advanced courses, and I must say that they are the best investment I made in my career.
The Microscope Training Centre is the first one of its kind in India. Even though many such centres have started in recent times, I chose Dr. Siju to benefit from the experience and international exposure of someone who has been a microscope user since 2004.
Dr. Siju delivers what he promises. The training is complete, and one can start practicing micro-endodontics from the very next day, like I did. You don't need to go anywhere else, to learn the rest of the tricks.
The biggest benefit of all, is the continuous, committed after-course-mentoring. To conduct a two-day course is easy. But it is extremely difficult to answer questions from hundreds of trainees, at the oddest of hours. Dr. Siju does that. Every. Single. Day.
He also charms everyone with his unassuming, kind and friendly temperament. He is one of those rare people who can get along with anybody. I always looked forward to lunches at his courses, not for the food, but for the conversation."
Dr. Leeba Varghese
"The Advanced Microscopic Endodontics Course, conducted by Dr Sergiu Nicola at The Root Canal Centre in Bangalore, was very knowledgeable. Dr Sergiu s ability to make everything look so simple is commendable. His photographs were a class apart. He made retrieval of a separated instrument look so easy and taught us tips and tricks you won’t find in any text book. It was a real fun learning experience!"
Dr. Anita Nitin
"My quest to discover a mentor culminated in dr siju jacob,, needless to mention that the courses attended at the training centre were life changing in terms of both professional and personal , his fathomless wisdom, global exposure and keen desire to grow and help others grow are the quintessential traits that make him great teacher,, the most underlying and satisfying thing is the constant mentoring that I cherish as he ensures that the silliest of my doubts are well answerer, so if anybody is looking forward to embark on a microscopic journey,, I strongly recommend dr jacob for an honest and unadulterated education, regards"
Dr. Dhrupad Mathur
"Having done my masters abroad I always had a mind block that there is a huge difference in the level of endodontic care taught and practiced in our country and elsewhere. It was a last-minute enrolment for me for Dr Sergiu Nicola’s course at the microscopic training centre. I hadn’t researched much about the set-up and other things. Little did I know that a lot of my perceptions were going to change. Right from the way I was received and the way I was taught I was more than satisfied. The set-up, the teaching process, the knowledge, the discussion is as good as it can get anywhere in the world. Dr. Siju is one of the few who actually want to teach unbiased endodontics with reasoning. Every single question was explained with a healthy discussion. Even after the course you can always get in touch with him for any query. He is always happy to help.
I believe that everyone who is interested in improving his or her endodontic skills should definitely consider coming here. The thing I benefited the most from, apart from the knowledge, was developing a renewed passion for endodontics. The amount I have started reading and researching about every new/old product in endodontics is crazy. This course made me want to excel every time I do a root canal and want to get better with every root canal I do- try to learn something new from every case. It made me start looking at my workflow very differently. I am proud to say today that we have such a great endodontic training centre in our country and I am fortunate that I didn’t miss out on training here!
If you are someone who is as passionate about microscopic endo- This is the he gateways to your goals! HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended!"
Dr. Nikhil Modi
"When I decided to work with the Dental Operating Microscope (DOE) for my everyday cases, I wanted to get trained to use the DOE the right way.
I started looking out for courses and also attended a few that made no difference & kept me searching for the right training with a professional mentor.
That’s when I came to know about Dr Siju’s “The Microscope Training Centre” in Bangalore India. I booked myself for the 2 Day basic workshop. Dr Siju contacted me prior to the course to discuss our requirements. This is a very good approach by Dr Siju to know the areas of difficulty I have faced in my clinic to help me overcome them during the training.
The 2 days training was really useful, I learnt a lot from Dr Siju & I have been doing all my Root canals under the microscope without any difficulty. He also added me to a closed WhatsApp group to have discussions & for continued monitoring. This training was exactly what I needed and more.
I highly recommend all to get trained at The Microscope Training Centre & I am sure all will agree it’s an enjoyable and a valuable experience here."
