Abstract: The purpose of this laboratory exercise was to describe the fabrication of an in vitro model, containing natural teeth, for teaching the principles of conventional endodontic procedures to preclinical dental students. Maxillary and mandibular models were made (from moulds using silicone duplicating material with U-shaped lingual/palatal groove) from acrylic mixed with saw dust. Apices of the selected teeth were covered with beading wax and placed in the corresponding sockets of the rubber mould before pouring the acrylic. Using this model for a period of two-years has proved to be beneficial for undergraduate pre-clinical endodontic course work since its advantages were accepted by both the students and faculty staff.
