Worth Saving

Your Teeth are Worth Saving

AAE’s public awareness campaign

Worth Saving Logo

“Worth Saving” is meant to bring to life that, like your natural teeth, there are things, people and places that are worth revering.

At the AAE Board’s directive, implement a multi-year public awareness campaign with the goal that:

“The public will value saving their natural teeth and seek endodontists as the first choice for their care. They will understand what an endodontist does and how they are different from general dentistry providers.”

“Worth Saving” is meant to bring to life that, like your natural teeth, there are things, people and places that are worth revering.

Compelling Videos

The AAE produced professional videos to truly get into the spirit of what's "Worth Saving" and to get to know some other "savers" out there who work to save, preserve and revere something.

We all know endodontists specialize in saving teeth. But to truly get into the spirit of treasuring what's "Worth Saving", we wanted to get to know some other "savers" out there who work to save other things that are worth preserving and revering.
