Registration is now open for AAE18, the annual meeting of the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), scheduled for April 25-28 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. As the world’s largest education, exhibit, and networking event for endodontists, AAE18 will feature a broad range of speakers, program formats, and special events, according to the AAE.
“My goal for AAE18 is to offer a compelling, comprehensive program and a lively collection of speakers,” said AAE president Garry L. Myers, DDS. “I also want attendees to enjoy all that Denver has to offer, from the sights and cultural offerings to all the different opportunities for adventure in the Rocky Mountains.”
AAE18 will offer more than 100 educational sessions in a variety of tracks, including the new Controversies and Hot Topics Track, which will address some of endodontics’ most divisive topics including canal cleaning and disinfection, the introduction of nanoparticle-guided therapeutics, and surgical versus nonsurgical treatment.
The Surgical Track will update clinicians about current technologies, techniques, and research to demystify surgical procedures. Other tracks will include Endodontics Without Limits, Interdisciplinary, and Essentials for Endodontic Practice. The Submitted Presentations will cover a range of topics including access preparation, treatment outcomes, and “What an Endodontist Can Learn from Captain Sully.”
Attendees also will be able to visit with more than 100 vendors in the AAE18 Exhibit Hall to explore the latest in endodontic equipment, materials, and supplies, as well as practice management and other business resources to support endodontic practices. The AAE18 General Session additionally will feature Aron Ralston, author of the New York Times bestseller Between a Rock and a Hard Place, which inspired the film 127 Hours.
Other events will include the President’s Breakfast, the Louis I. Grossman Ceremony recognizing the newest Diplomates of the American Board of Endodontics, and the Edgar D. Coolidge Brunch to honor the AAE’s award winners. The AAE also will host Celebrate! Denver at Wings Over the Rockies, Colorado’s air and space museum, which is home to a B-52 bomber, an RF reconnaissance plane, and other aircraft.
The entire meeting schedule and registration are available at aae.org/aae18. To participate in any AAE18 activity, attendees must register for an AAE Member, Nonmember, or Guest package. Discounts are available on registrations through March 13.
