Abstract

The American Association of Endodontists (AAE) is the organization of endodontic specialists and other dental professionals worldwide with an interest in endodontics. The Association was founded in 1943 to promote the interchange of ideas, to stimulate research, and to encourage the highest standard of quality care in the practice of endodontics (performing root canals). Endodontics was recognized by the American dental Association as a dental specialty in 1963. Endodontists' advanced surgical and non-surgical skills make them uniquely qualified to treat routine as well as complex root canal cases. The care they provide is supported by intensive education on how to perform the very best endodontics. After completing dental school, endodontists complete a two- or three-year advanced dental school program that focuses only on endodontic science and procedures. The Association provides continuing education courses for practicing endodontists, so they can continue to be knowledgeable about state-of-the-art research, clinical procedures, and technology. Through this advanced knowledge, they can reward patients with the very best of endodontic care. The association sponsors the AAE Foundation, a charitable organization promoting the advancement of the science of endodontics through education and funding of quality research in the field of endodontics and pulp biology. The Association also sponsors the American Board of Endodontics, the national board responsible for certifying members as Diplomates through rigorous oral and written exams.
