Welcome to ESE Autumn Meeting 2024
As the incoming president of the European Society of Endodontology (ESE) I wish to extend a warm invitation for you to join us in the beautiful city of Krakow for the ESE Autumn meeting “Lessons learned from the ESE S3 guideline process” | 6th-7th September 2024.
Our Autumn meeting scientific programme will contain the usual diverse range of speakers who will include; renowned specialist practitioners, clinical academics and researchers in an exciting two days that combine the themes of research and clinical practice.
In the tradition of previous Autumn meetings, the style will be different from our conventional biennial event, with the focus be on one theme, albeit examined from the perspective of research and practice. In order to build on the intimate nature of previous events, the meeting will only feature one hall hosting a series of plenary events on both Friday 6th and Saturday 7th September. Although the focus of the meeting will revolve around recommendations and evidenced-based practice in endodontics, the purpose will be to simplify the message and discuss where we are now in endodontic practice as well as the evidence we need to improve.
We hope you will be happy to visit Krakow, Poland as the ESE visits the country for the first time. This cultural and historic city will provide the ideal backdrop for a focussed congress delivering feast of practice-based lectures.
The ESE Autumn Meeting will be supported as before in our trade exhibition of Corporate Partners and Sponsors, and we offer them, as always, our respect and thanks. The ESE Executive Board are confident that with your support the ESE Autumn meeting in Krakow will be an important congress for all people with an interest in endodontics to consider what we should be practicing, teaching and researching over the next 10 years!
Hoping to see you there!
Hal Duncan (President 2024)
The aim of the ESE Krakow Autumn meeting is to share the findings and recommendations of the ESE S3-level guidelines from two distinct perspectives:
Firstly, we will discuss the impact of the guidelines on clinical practice by highlighting the relevance of the recommendations to four different endodontic procedures: instrumentation, irrigation, obturation and regenerative endodontics. Two experts relevant to each procedure will provide their own feedback and demonstrate to participants the effect of recent improvements in clinical procedures, providing clinical tips on how to improve skills and optimise outcomes.
The second more scientific approach, will critically analyse the research underpinning the guideline process and suggest improvements in evidence based dentistry and identify research areas of priority that will improve our understanding of the best clinical procedures in the future. Again two experts from each fields will provide their own insight and feedback the evidence supporting the guidelines, while highlighting future research directions in the field.
A diverse range of renowned international speakers will contribute to this innovative mix of research and clinical practice making the meeting a great opportunity for practitioners, academics and students to improve both theoretical and practical knowledge in a wide range of everyday endodontic procedures.
