AAE16 in San Francisco broke the mold of the traditional AAE annual meeting, with unconventional educational tracks and program formats, and the exciting launch of the new AAE brand. The meeting broke records as well, as more than 4,200 members, guests and corporate partners made it the largest attendance for an AAE meeting to date!
Held April 6-9, AAE16 featured more than 130 educational sessions over seven tracks and a variety of networking opportunities and special events. At the President’s Breakfast, AAE 2015-2016 President Dr. Terryl A. Propper urged ADA President-Elect Dr. Gary L. Roberts and the ADA to enforce the standard of practice for endodontics and encourage general dentists to consult endodontists in treatment planning. As Dr. Propper stated, “We are in the business of saving teeth, not condemning them, but if we are not included in the treatment planning process, then it is the patient who suffers.” The breakfast culminated with the unveiling of the AAE’s new brand, developed to better represent the innovation and professionalism of the endodontic specialty.
