CHICAGO, Ill., USA: The American Association of Endodontists 2013 Annual Session offers more than 100 high-quality educational sessions. The meeting, being held April 17-20 at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, offers attendees the chance to earn up to 22.5 hours of continuing education credits. The theme of the event is “Endodontics: Exceeding Expectations.”

Curriculum varies from nine different tracks. New tracks this year are “Endo 2025,” “Imaging,” “Pain and Pharmacology” and “Systemic Health,” covering topics such as tissue engineering, pain management, outcome assessments, medical myths in dentistry and more. “Mega-Session Wednesday,” also new, will allow attendees to delve deeper into a topic of their choice with longer, more in-depth presentations on the first day of the meeting.

“We have educational sessions given by cutting-edge presenters on cutting-edge topics,” said AAE President Dr. James C. Kulild. “Attendees can apply those principles in their own practices in order to increase their quality of care and their value to their referrers and their patients.”

The always-popular Master Clinician Series and hands-on workshops will feature leading experts in topics such as “Differential Diagnosis of Pain,” “Clinical Application of High Resolution CBCT in Endodontics,” “Maximizing the Value of Your Endodontic Service” and “Functional Crown-Lengthening Surgery.” Attendees can attend one of these workshops for a more hands-on experience in technique and then head to a practice management course or to the exhibit hall to explore specialized endodontic distributors.

In addition to C.E. opportunities, numerous special events fill the schedule, allowing attendees to network and catch up with old and new friends. The schedule for the meeting sessions start and end earlier this year, allowing guests to explore the beautiful Honolulu surroundings. The AAE Foundation live auction will feature a dunk tank, where well-known members have volunteered to help raise money by testing the fate of the payers’ accuracy. Additionally, during the Grossman breakfast, the American Board of Endodontics will recognize the 86 endodontists who achieved board certification in the past year, the largest class of diplomates ever.
