• Inspire and support research and the genesis of new knowledge
• Enhance educational programs and opportunities in endodontics
• Improve the endodontic health of the public
Why do we need a foundation to support research and education?
The Foundation Puts the Agenda for Research and Education in Your Hands
The endowment fund was created to:
• Validate clinical practice with science
• Support new discoveries
• Recruit and retain endodontic educators
• Strengthen educational programs
• Define endodontics as the preferred treatment to retain healthy dentition
Ensure the specialty’s leadership in the dental health arena
In 1995, the goal was to raise $5 million in five years. Today about $20 million is invested and another $4.5 million is promised.
Since the Campaign began, over $1 million has been pledged by students! Campaign Participation by Endodontic Programs
