IngleJohnIn recognition of his outstanding contributions to the art and science of endodontics and in recognition of his long association with Canadian endodontics, the Canadian Academy of Endodontics is presenting John I. Ingle, D.D.S., M.S.D., with Honorary Membership.

Dr. Ingle is a pioneer, educator and international leader in the field of endodontics. In 1959, Dr. Ingle initiated the Graduate Endodontics Program at the University of Washington School of Dentistry, one of only five such programs in the world at that time. After leaving UW, he joined the University of Southern California, where he served as dean and professor of the School of Dentistry for eight years.

Dr. Ingle had the foresight to recognize the future role of endodontics in health care. He is widely known for his authoritative textbook, ENDODONTICS, first published in 1965. The textbook, now called Ingle’s ENDODONTICS, recently was published in its 7th edition, 50 years after its first publication. Dr. Ingle is a Diplomate and founding member of the American Board of Endodontics, and a past president of the American Association of Endodontists. Dr. Ingle received the AAE’s Ralph F. Sommer Award in 1987 and the Edgar D. Coolidge Award, the AAE’s highest honor, in 1999. In 2001, he was inducted into the USC School of Dentistry’s Hall of Fame, the highest honor the school bestows on an individual. Dr. Ingle was recognized at AAE15 in Seattle with a Congressional proclamation for his dedication and immeasurable contributions to the specialty.

Dr. Ingle’s dedication has extended beyond care for his patients and has enabled new generations of clinicians, teachers and researchers to serve more effectively in our specialty of endodontics.

Dr. Ingle will receive his award at the 52nd Annual General Meeting of The Canadian Academy of Endodontics, to be held in Winnipeg, Canada, on September 14-17, 2016.
