Registration is now open for AAE16, the annual meeting of the American Association of Endodontists, taking place April 6-9 at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco. The world's largest education, exhibit and networking event for endodontists, AAE16 features a broad range of speakers and great variety in program formats.
"Not everyone learns in the same way, so we're excited to introduce new programming this year to meet the needs of all attendees," said AAE President Terryl A. Propper. "In addition to traditional lectures, other educational sessions will feature point/counterpoint debates, talk show-style interviews, panel discussions and some shorter, more focused programs we're calling 'CE Express'."
New educational tracks at AAE16 include Interdisciplinary Care and Derailment. The interdisciplinary care track will bring together endodontic experts and leaders in orofacial pain, otolaryngology, pharmacology and others to examine cases from different perspectives. A new track for San Francisco is the derailment track-the things that can go wrong each day-addressing challenges such as managing material extrusion, removing broken or separated instruments, repairing failed referring dentist relationships and dealing with staffing issues. In addition, AAE16 includes more than 100 vendors offering the latest in endodontic equipment, materials and supplies.
Special events at AAE16 include the President's Breakfast, Louis I. Grossman Ceremony, recognizing the newest Diplomates of the American Board of Endodontics, and the Edgar D. Coolidge Luncheon, honoring the AAE's award winners. Making the most of the Bay Area, this year's Welcome Reception will feature wines and cheeses from the famed Napa Valley and Sonoma County regions, while Celebrate San Francisco! will be held at the Exploratorium museum on San Francisco's Embarcadero.
"I'm so excited about this year's meeting and all of the innovative approaches we're taking to make AAE16 memorable," said Dr. Propper. "I want all of our attendees to return to their practices, schools or residencies with new enthusiasm and ideas to provide the best patient care and support the specialty."
