"This donation is an investment in the field of endodontics, the future of technology and the doctors who are constantly pushing for innovation in the field."
The Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the American of Association of Endodontists, is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2016. In honor of this milestone, it has allocated $1.6 million for grants, with approximately 45 percent of funding going towards research and 55 percent going to education.
Grants for research in regenerative endodontics, external and internal resorption and the endodontic/implant relationship are just a few of the ways the Foundation supports the field of endodontics.
