What is Endo Wellness?

Group activities are hard to come by as social distancing continues, so the AAE and the Foundation for Endodontics created this Challenge to unite our specialty. Getting back in action isn't something you'll do alone when you participate in the Endo Wellness Challenge. Your step count will be added to the step count of every other participant, reminding us all that we aren't alone in seeking wellness, taking time for ourselves, and celebrating our endo community.

In addition to supporting physical and mental well-being amongst endodontists, dental office staff, students, and friends and family, we wanted to take this opportunity to focus on the wellness of the endodontic specialty.

Chance and cancellation seem to be everywhere, but the Foundation's programs and funding opportunities remain intact for residents, educators and practitioners. Ensure the strength and wellness of the philanthropic endodontic organization with a contribution to compliment your Endo Wellness Challenge experience.

Thank you to everyone who chose to generously support the Foundation as part of the Endo Wellness Challenge!
