Endodontic Residents Connect at APICES

A popular ping pong venue – Spin Chicago – was the scene for networking and relationship building between Dentsply Sirona Endodontics (DSE) and incoming, current and graduating endodontic residents during the weekend-long 2017 APICES meeting.

Enjoying the event-packed meeting in Chicago on August 11-12, nearly 300 endodontic residents took advantage of the opportunity to learn, meet new practitioners, researchers and educators, and gather information from corporate partner exhibits.

As a Diamond Sponsor for APICES, Dentsply Sirona provided Yeti’s branded with their resident-focused program, Pathways to Practice, and sponsored a fun, action-packed social evening at Spin Chicago. Additionally, six lucky registrants won products from our 2017 raffle.  The winners included:

  • Dr. Hae Jung Ko – NYU ’18 – X-Smart IQ™ Cordless Motor Handpiece and iPad® Case
  • Dr. Sowjanya Tadakapalli – Boston Univ. ’19 – EndoActivator® System
  • Dr. Allyson Won – NYU ’18 – ProMark® Apex Locator
  • Dr. Matt Walker – Univ. of Louisville ’18 – QMix® 2in1 Irrigating Solution
  • Dr. John Logsdon – Univ. of Pacific ’19 – 20 Packs of Rotary Files
  • Dr. Mona Alenezi – Boston Univ. ’18 – 20 Packs of Rotary Files

The raffle is just one of many ways that Dentsply Sirona supports APICES, endodontic residency programs and students. “Endodontics is an intricate specialty that requires skill and precision. As a company, we do everything we can to support the endodontic residents who have taken on this charge because we know how important it is to preserve the endodontic specialty,” said Brad Duffel, who oversees the Pathways to Practice program.

“As we continually strive to develop tools that help clinicians provide better, safer, faster root canal treatments, today’s endodontic residents will soon become our key partners in the fight to save teeth,” Duffel said.
