Registration is now open for AAE17, the annual meeting of the American Association of Endodontists, taking place April 26-29 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. The world's largest education, exhibit and networking event for endodontists, AAE17 features a broad range of speakers, great variety in program formats and exciting special events.
"My goal for AAE17 is to offer a highly scientific, evidence-based program, and to include speakers new to presenting at the annual meeting," said AAE President Linda G. Levin. "I also want attendees to enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer - from the sights, sounds and cuisine there will be no mistaking we're in the Big Easy."
AAE17 offers more than 100 high-quality educational sessions in a variety of tracks including Pulp Fiction, which will address controversial and misunderstood topics in the specialty, Saving the Natural Tooth, sharing the latest evidence and recommended treatments to save patients' teeth, and Surgical and Nonsurgical Endodontics. The highlight of the Surgical Endodontics track is live, 3-D microsurgery. Dr. Syngcuk Kim will perform two live endodontic microsurgeries using 3-D technology that allows attendees to view the procedure as the surgeon sees it through the microscope.
Attendees also will be able to visit with nearly 100 vendors in the AAE17 Exhibit Hall to explore the latest in endodontic equipment, materials and supplies, as well as practice management and other business resources to support endodontic practices.
The AAE17 General Session will feature keynote speakers James Carville and Mary Matalin, New Orleans residents and one of America's best-loved political couples. Other special events include the President's Breakfast, Louis I. Grossman Ceremony, recognizing the newest Diplomates of the American Board of Endodontics, and the Edgar D. Coolidge Jazz Brunch, honoring the AAE's award winners. Making the most of the Crescent City, the Welcome Reception will feature New Orleans-style cuisine and entertainment, while attendees will join a brass band to march to Celebrate New Orleans! at Generations Hall.
Dental professionals who join the AAE receive a member discount on meeting registration of 35 percent, and when you register, be sure to make a donation to the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic and Assistance Foundation, which provides medical and dental care to musicians in the New Orleans area regardless of their ability to pay.
