AAE goes ‘live & on-demand’ April 21 to 24
AAE21, the annual meeting of the American Association of Endodontists, will take place April 21 to 24 (Wednesday through Saturday). The event is being conducted completely online using a virtual platform allowing attendees to view general sessions, enjoy live and on-demand educational content, participate in small-group video chats and interact with exhibitors.
Known as the premier source of continuing education in endodontics, AAE’s annual meeting is the largest and most diverse opportunity for learning the latest endodontic techniques, exploring new research and exchanging ideas. As the specialty continues to adapt to these changing times, the annual meeting remains a fixture in advancing the specialty.
“We have spent the past several months reimagining the annual meeting you know and love into a virtual format, and we pledge to bring you an experience that’s as close to an authentic live meeting as possible — all from the safety of home,” meeting organizers said in an online announcement.
To access the meeting and to register, visit www.aae.org/AAE21. All session recordings will be available through the AAE21 website until May 31, 2021. Virtual attendees may log in and watch sessions as many times as desired.
Meeting attendees will have access to the AAE’s virtual exhibit hall, featuring giveaways, resources and special offers. The exhibit hall will include a listing of companies, a showcase of products, show specials and opportunities for industry education.

Among the many educational highlights, Dr. Yoshi Terauchi will present his session, “Do You Know Instrument Retrieval Is Much Easier and More Predictable Than You Think It Is?” on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. (CDT).
