Pacific Endodontic Research Foundation Presents: The PERF Scientific Session 2020

The COVID Pandemic: Three Perspectives from 3 world-class clinicians and researchers

Roger Lewis, Anne Rimoin, and Steven Goodman (7 CE)

For this special session we have top experts in epidemiology, evidence-based medicine, and emergency medicine presenting. This will be an analysis of what the data and the science tells us, what we know and what we don't know, and an analysis of how this data has affected decision making and how endodontists should be thinking about the pandemic as clinicians.

Morning Session: Q&A

This session will be an in-depth question and answer session with 2 leading experts in epidemiology.  You can ask them any questions you want! Covered will be:
  • How disease models of COVID affect our decision making
  • What we know about about COVID and what we don\'t know
  • How does an epidemiologist understand this disease?
  • What is the real threat from the disease?
  • How good is the evidence we have about the disease?
Roger Lewis

Afternoon Session: Epidemic Modeling of COVID-19: Challenges, Lessons, Utility, and Limitations

The lecture objectives are: (1) to understand basic epidemic compartment models and their application in epidemic prediction modeling; (2) to understand conceptually the Bayesian formulation of the Susceptible, Exposed, Infected, Recovered (SEIR) model and how it was used for epidemic prediction modeling in Los Angeles County; (3) to understand the limitations of available case data in informing estimates of the incidence, severity, and spread of COVID-19; (4) to understand how the model can be used to estimate projected needs for hospital beds, intensive care, mechanical ventilation, and morgue services; (5) to understand the predictive performance of the Bayesian SEIR model in predicting the trajectory of the epidemic since its beginning; and (6) to understand how critical gaps in understanding true community infection burden and the extent and duration of naturally-acquired immunity limit the ability to create accurate epidemic models going forward.
Expect to Learn:
Attendees should expect to acquire an understanding of the mechanics, limitations, and value of epidemic prediction models, improving their ability to interpret model results that they see presented in scientific publications or the lay press.


The 2020 Integrated User Meeting is going to be the endodontic educational event of the year!

Frequently Asked Questions

All sessions are being recorded and will be available to view on-demand, including the CE clinician track. However, due to the rules given by ADA CERP and AGD PACE, we can only offer CE credit for those who attend live. This is due to requirements in tracking attendance, capturing surveys, and being able to provide a Q&A session for all attendees. That being said, once the meeting ends all of the CE lectures will be released as on demand videos. 

All the meeting lectures will be available for two weeks after the meeting ends. If we decide to extend this, we will notify registered meeting attendees.

Yes, the exhibitors hall is fully featured and each vendor will have a Zoom room during meeting hours and will have plenty of options to get into contact to learn more. At the moment, our confirmed vendors are: Excellence In Endodontics, J. Morita, SS White, ASI, Ultimate Dental, and Global  We'll likely add a few more vendors before the event begins. We will be opening access to get a sneak peak of the vendors area starting on the Monday of the meeting. Any specials or promotions will be available to view on their exhibitors portals. TDO and Sonendo will also have virtual booths in case you want to contact Diane in sales or the support team with any questions you might have.
