What is Endo Wellness?

Group activities are hard to come by as social distancing continues, so the AAE and the Foundation for Endodontics created this Challenge to unite our specialty. Getting back in action isn't something you'll do alone when you participate in the Endo Wellness Challenge. Your step count will be added to the step count of every other participant, reminding us all that we aren't alone in seeking wellness, taking time for ourselves, and celebrating our endo community.

In addition to supporting physical and mental well-being amongst endodontists, dental office staff, students, and friends and family, we wanted to take this opportunity to focus on the wellness of the endodontic specialty.

Chance and cancellation seem to be everywhere, but the Foundation's programs and funding opportunities remain intact for residents, educators and practitioners. Ensure the strength and wellness of the philanthropic endodontic organization with a contribution to compliment your Endo Wellness Challenge experience.


Looking to add another component to your Endo Wellness Challenge experience? Up the ante with a contribution to the Foundation for Endodontics.

In addition to the Bonus Activities, we suggest trying some of these other ideas that foster healthy competition and contribute to the longevity of the specialty by supporting the Foundation.

Match a dollar contribution for each step or mile completed with a friend.

Bet on yourself by donating $5 per mile achieved.

Challenge colleagues to a "step bet." Everyone contributes a set amount, anyone who does not meet the established goal doubles their donation.

Coltene has generously agreed to donate $50 to the Foundation for each challenge participant who hits 40,000 steps! Up to $2,500 will be donated to support the Foundation's mission to support endodontics by providing resources and funding for research, education, public awareness and access to care.

How it works

When you donate during the Endo Wellness Challenge, you will be emailed a QR code to scan for 1,500 bonus steps! The more steps you bank, the higher you climb on the Leaderboard and increase your chances of winning prizes. There is no minimum amount required to donate. You can donate as many times as you like throughout the Challenge, but only one QR code will be sent per day.

How it benefits the specialty

Your contribution will support mission-driven initiatives that ensure the specialty's growth and vitality for years to come. Our work spans across four focus areas that strengthen the visibility and strength of endodontics.

$500 can provide one resident with a Resident Research Grant.


$100 can pay for a full-time educator's professional development for one year.


$50 can help the Foundation advance its domestic access to care efforts.


Even just $20 supports the development and growth of our specialty.
