British Endodontic Society

BES Regional Meeting will be hosted in Edinburgh this autumn

The British Endodontic Society is holding its 2017 regional meeting in Edinburgh on 17th and 18th November at the Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa. Hosted by BES President Professor BS Chong, the two-day programme is set to engage, educate and inspire delegates who are booking from all over the world.

The theme of the meeting ‘Endodontic infections and systemic health’ aims to explore the possible links between oral inflammatory processes and general well-being.

The event includes a range of masterclasses, presentations from key speakers, a trade exhibition, networking opportunities and conference dinner.

Friday 17 November:

Friday’s programme starts with the choice of four masterclasses:

“Can you see it? Can you measure it? Can you fix it?” by Professor Nick Chandler (NZ)

“Root canal instrumentation – current challenges and future directions” by Professor Michael Hülsmann (Germany)

“Professional regulation, fitness to practise and consent – great expectations?” by Dr Stephen Henderson (UK)

“CBCT in endodontics – the current status” by Dr Jimmy Makdissi (UK)

Following lunch, Professor Martin Thornhill (UK) will be giving two lectures: “Focal infection theory – endodontics in the dock?” and “Antibiotic prophylaxis and endocarditis – what a NICE mess!”.

Friday’s conference dinner, subsidised by the BES, will be held at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. There will be a private viewing of the Dental Collection, one of the finest in the UK, at the Surgeons Hall Museum, a drinks reception and traditional Ceilidh entertainment.
