Association Celebrates 75 Years of Saving Teeth

This year is the 75th anniversary of the AAE, founded in 1943 as the American Root Therapy Association. View our anniversary video to learn about the important milestones in the organization’s history and visit the AAE’s history page online to share your memories of the Association.

Life member Dr. Ronald O. Segall of North Carolina writes, “I remember joining the AAE in my first year of residency in 1975. I also remember the camaraderie that existed and the ability to ask perplexing questions of the grandfathers of our profession. I remember sitting with I.B. Bender and discussing with him one of my patients with the patient’s X-rays. I. B. diagnosed the problem almost immediately and I was able to confirm the diagnosis against the opposition of the patient’s physician and help the patient and his family in the process.”
