2008 Consensus Conference

This AAE Consensus Conference held on October 3, 2008, in Chicago, Ill., addressed issues regarding the lack of standardized endodontic diagnostic terms, especially among the predoctoral curriculum, endodontic textbooks, American Board of Endodontics, AAE Glossary of Endodontic Terms and national board exams. Generously funded by the AAE Foundation, this conference was by invitation only. Invitees were carefully selected and represented all interested parties including educators, the AAE Board of Directors, ABE and AAE Foundation leadership, international participants, textbook authors, JOE associate editors and representatives from test committees. The conference gave leading endodontic educators, researchers, leaders and other stakeholders a forum to discuss the wide variation in terms, with the intent of reaching consensus on the terminology, definitions, evaluation criteria and treatment modalities for pulpal and periapical disease.
