This Scientific Session will consist of 15 min summaries by 4 leading endodontists summarizing their understanding of our disease model and how that model helps explain (or doesn’t explain) our endodontic outcomes.
The remaining Session will be an in-depth evaluation of the credibility of our disease model as well as a critical review of how coherent our outcomes data is. The Scientific Session will challenge every endodontist to think through both our model and our outcomes in a way rarely seen in the endodontic literature.
