Over the years, both our mission and activities have evolved into four areas: research, education, outreach and development. By focusing on these four concentrations, we assist members of AAE in the pursuit of excellence in their field and further our vision to support endodontists in their efforts to save natural teeth whenever possible. Throughout our fundraising activities, initiatives and strategic planning, we uphold our core values: integrity, accountability, responsiveness, innovative, collaborative and impactful.

We thank Dr. Gluskin for his meaningful President’s Message in the December Communique!

In his message, Dr. Gluskin shares that when endodontists give back, they are really giving ⏩forward to the future of the specialty. ☀️

On giving to the Foundation, Dr. Gluskin shares, “I view this commitment as supporting a specialty that gave me significant purpose in my life, a career of distinction for the son of an immigrant family, and ultimately, the satisfaction of personal self-worth.”

Thank you, Dr. Gluskin!

One of our very own trustees and past educator fellows, Dr. Johnah Galicia, has published a study on SARS-CoV2 and the dental pulp alongside an additional past educator fellow and RSAC member, Dr. Asma Khan! This may very well be the first study exploring Covid-19 and the dental pulp! The data used in this study came from a project that the Foundation funded when Dr. Galicia was a resident. Also included in the project are Drs. Pietro Guzzi and Federico Giorgi. Well done, everyone!

We want to let you know all of the ways this grant can be used to continue your professional development in 2020!

The Foundation’s Board of Trustees and staff are sad about the cancellation of #AAE20 in Nashville next month. The Foundation has accomplished so much since last annual meeting, and we were really looking forward to sharing our achievements and goals with you in person!

We share the community’s sadness about the cancellation of #AAE20 and are eager to continue our work to enhance the specialty by supporting endodontic research, education, development and access to care. At this time, we want to take a moment to say thank you to those who have supported the Foundation and endodontics as a whole by making a pledge to the 2019-2020 fundraising campaign, and to remind you that we are still here for you as the campaign continues. We are excited for what’s ahead.
