CHICAGO – The Foundation for Endodontics, the philanthropic arm of the American Association of Endodontics, announces that Endo1 Partners has committed to a generous $500,000 pledge. This pledge will allow the Foundation to further its mission, benefiting post-graduate endodontic residents and educators. Specifically, the five-year pledge will be applied each year to a new scholarship for residents, the Foundation for Endodontics & Endo1 Partners Annual Meeting Resident Development Scholarship, and the Foundation for Endodontics & Endo1 Partners ADEA Scholar. 

The goal of the Resident Development Scholarship is to financially assist residents in their final year of training who will be presenting either oral research, poster research or table clinic presentation. The scholarship reimburses AAE annual meeting eligible expenses up to $500.

“It’s important to us to take part in the educational support that prepares future dental professionals. Our commitment allows us to contribute to continued advancements in the industry while playing a role in their pending careers,” said Dr. Matthew Haddad, Co-CEO and Co-Founder, Endo1 Partners. In partnership, the Foundation and Endo1 Partners will sponsor one endodontic educator’s participation in the ADEA Leadership Institute, annually. The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) Leadership Institute helps to further develop dental faculty and enables a growing pool of outstanding academicians to become academic leaders in dental institutions. Endodontic education drives the specialty forward and supporting endodontists in leadership positions raises the profile of endodontics within institutions.

“An opportunity to influence education and research, combined with ADEA’s dedication to providing the support and resources of future specialists in our field, serves as the foundation of our pledge,” Dr. Daryl Dudum, Co-CEO and Co-Founder, Endo1 Partners shared.

These awards will enable a growing pool of outstanding residents and academicians to achieve new heights. Our thanks to Endo1 Partners for their support!
