Features and Benefits
Membership of the Society is open to all dentists. As a member of the Society an individual also automatically receives membership of the European Society of Endodontology.
Encouragement of professional development and the promotion of high standards are central functions of the Society. The Society also aims to bring together individuals with whom the practice of endodontics forms part of their working life and to offer advice and guidance.
- International Endodontic Journal
The International Endodontic Journal is published twelve times a year and a printed copy is sent to each full member without extra charge. Members, including Postgraduates, can fully access the Journal online via the website. The Journal publishes clinical and research articles and regular review articles and enables members to keep abreast of recent developments in endodontics. A calendar of events also gives details of endodontic meetings worldwide.
- Continuing Professional Education
The General Dental Council requires dentists to undertake CPE as part of their professional development. The Society offers its members meetings with validated CPD to contribute to this requirement by attending conferences; some of which have with table top clinics, and the opportunity to present and publish research.
- Professional Practice
The Society offers its members the opportunity to contribute to and influence the direction of the profession and encourages its members to lobby Council on issues of individual concern. The Society also provides information on recommended guidelines in endodontics.
Do you worry about your endodontics? Do you dread the thought of molar endodontics? Are you anxious that it may not be an adequate foundation for your crown and bridge work? Do you avoid endodontics because you find it difficult? Are you sure you know when endodontic treatment is indicated; and when it is not? Are you concerned that you are not up-to-date with technology and unsure of the different methods of resolving your questions.
The Society can resolve some of these questions, because they are just the sort of topics addressed at our meetings, not only in lectures and demonstrations but also in informal conversation with colleagues. The Society holds two Meetings each year - a one day Meeting in the Spring and a two day Regional Meeting in the Autumn. Both meetings provide the opportunity to listen to distinguished speakers in the profession whilst the Regional Meeting offers delegates the opportunity to attend or present "table clinics" which address a full spectrum of topics encompassing both the underlying science and knowledge, and clinical aspects. The Spring Scientific Meeting honours undergraduate and post-graduate prize winners and provides opportunities for young researchers to share their findings. Members attend meetings at reduced rates.
The Society arranges two exhibitions each year in conjunction with its Meetings. Members are given the opportunity to see the latest equipment on offer and meet and discuss with those involved in producing and marketing such equipment.
The Society's website continues to be developed to provide members with information and contacts.
You can join us by applying online.
