Corporate Giving

Join leaders in the dental industry and support the Foundation for Endodontics!

There are plenty of reasons to support the Foundation:

  • A pledge or contribution to the Foundation is not the same as sponsorship, marketing or advertising. It is a contribution that has a direct impact on the specialty’s future growth and development.
  • Corporate commitment creates a stronger practice environment for endodontists and a better business climate for the industry. No other type of support will give your company and your products the same status or distinction among AAE members.
  • Research and education define endodontics as a specialty. Strong academic and scientific agendas equal a strong and productive specialty, both for endodontists and for the industry.
  • The Foundation’s mission also supports access to care and public awareness which is increasing the visibility of endodontics and endodontists and promoting the benefits of saving natural teeth.
  • Since the Foundation’s fundraising efforts took off in 1995, about $30 million has been invested in the fund.
  • Sixty-six percent of AAE members have pledged. Residents have contributed more than $1 million. The Foundation has one of the highest levels of member participation among dental associations.
  • Check out the list of current corporate donors on the Corporate Donor Honor Roll.
