This September, the British Endodontic Society (BES) will be hosting the International Federation of Endodontic Associations (IFEA), and World Endodontic Congress (WEC) at the Scottish Events Campus in Glasgow.

The theme for WEC is ‘Phases & Interfaces’ and although the focus will be endodontics, it will explore the multi-disciplinary approach to patient treatment and exciting new scientific advances which will benefit the patient from childhood, through to adulthood and then as an older adult. The congress will cover a range of topics within the scope of the theme and more broadly in core concepts of endodontics.

Under the theme of ‘The Child’, the congress will feature a dental trauma mini-symposium and a dental pulp regeneration mini-symposium. When exploring ‘The Adult’ there will be mini-symposia on vital pulp therapy and management of the deep carious lesion, the Endo-Resto interface and imaging.

the WEC offers a diverse and comprehensive educational programme to educate and inspire all who attend

For the theme of ‘The Older Adult’, the congress will explore the role of endodontic disease on systemic health. It will also bring together world-renowned speakers on topics such as endodontic microbiology, disinfection in endodontics, instrumentation, root resorption and microsurgery to name but a few.
In addition, along with the customary country speakers that will speak on behalf of the member nations, parallel sessions will run in the form of an Endodontic Teachers Group meeting and an Early Careers Group meeting. Invited speakers will present on pertinent topics for each of these groups.

This is a truly global event with an amazing programme running over three days with up to five parallel sessions running. It features nearly 90 world-leading experts and nearly 250 submitted oral and poster presentations. There is also a great pre-Congress programme including surgery, trauma, endo-resto, instrumentation, intentional replantation and autogenous transplantation, orofacial pain, and instrument retrieval. Several special seminars and workshops will also be running during the main programme and include the use of CBCT in endodontics.

In addition to this, delegates can expect an exciting social programme, helping them to make the most of their time in Scotland including a welcome reception at the Glasgow Science Centre, Gala Dinner at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, and a Ceilidh at Merchants Square.

WEC sponsors share our passion for high-quality endodontics and education and hope to enable our delegates to reach their treatment goals using first-class products.

The Platinum Sponsor, Dentsply Sirona, shares the organisers’ excitement for the upcoming Congress. In their support of the WEC, they encourage the highest standards of education for the delegates.

Jean-Marie Guillemin, Marketing Director for Dentsply Sirona Endodontics, said: “The Congress will be an opportunity to put everything into practice, as we’ll be hosting some hands-on workshops as well as supporting speakers who will discuss various topics from development of early career clinicians to reciprocation advice and overcoming challenges with paediatric patients.”

Sarah Waldmann, Director of Global Clinical Education for Dentsply Sirona Endodontics, added: “IFEA is valuable for all clinicians with an interest in endodontics, regardless of their specialisation or career stage. That’s why we’re investing in what it offers and what it stands for.”

Inclusivity for improved education Will McLean, Professor of Endodontology at the University of Glasgow, the BES President and Congress Chair, said: “ I would like to extend an invitation to all those with an interest in endodontics, no matter their level of expertise; they will find IFEA WEC a valuable experience. “No matter whether delegates are just starting out or if they’ve been providing endodontic treatment for years, the WEC offers a diverse and comprehensive educational programme to educate and inspire all who attend and what’s even better it is on your doorstep!”
