British Endodontic Society and innovative endodonticsNews
Posted by: The Probe 2nd December 2019
Since its formation in 1963, the British Endodontic Society and its ever-growing membership base has borne witness to enormous changes within the field of Endodontology. As dental practitioners, not only have our technical skills evolved to embrace the many advancements but the very fabric of our understanding of the diseases we treat has changed. Innovation is truly the driving force behind this evolution and with the recent growth of regenerative endodontics and influx of digital dentistry, to name but a few, it is apt that this year’s Regional BES Meeting has been labelled “Innovative Endodontics”.
For all those looking to peer into the possible future of endodontics; Mark Hunter, our President will welcome you to the annual regional meeting which is to be held at the Principal Hotel, Manchester on the 22nd and 23rd November. There will be a line-up of internationally renowned keynote speakers including Dr Gilberto Debelian (New NiTi wire [MaxWire™] and instrument system [XP-endo®]), Dr Joerd van der Meer (3D matters and workflow in endodontics), Dr Meetu Kholi (Bio ceramics in Endodontics; including its use as a sealer) and Prof Roeland De Moor (Laser application in endodontics including disinfection) and Prof Paul Lambrechts (An innovative approach to unravel external cervical root resorption) . The meeting will also include table clinics, the conference dinner with entertainment (Oasis tribute band!) and trade exhibitions appealing to both the youthful, experienced and all those in the middle. The BES welcomes all practitioners, in fact, the Society itself has a long history in promoting endodontology starting at the undergraduate level by sponsoring prizes, at the postgraduate level by providing annual research grants of up to £30,000 and continues to offer prizes for poster abstracts on new research undertaken in the United Kingdom. This activity is an important stepping-stone to drive innovation and to continue to promote and advance endodontology into the future.
