CHICAGO - Working with Operation Support Our Troops—America, one of the largest volunteer-based military support organizations in the country, the American Association of Endodontists encourages dental professionals and patients to donate items for care packages, monetary gifts or a letter to our troops. With support from Henry Schein Dental/Henry Schein Cares, the AAE will have a booth at the Hynes Convention Center for attendees to submit their donations to the cause during the upcoming AAE Annual Session in Boston, April 18 – 21.
Military dentists work in special conditions, usually maintaining the oral health of soldiers on military bases, but they are frequently transferred and also get deployed. The AAE wishes to recognize these individuals, as well as their families and veterans with an ongoing Support the Troops initiative.
“We want our troops to know we appreciate everything they do for our country,” said AAE President Dr. William T. Johnson. “Many of our members, including myself, are serving or have served in the armed forces, and we hope that our actions will help make life a little easier for them. We invite the entire dental community to join us in supporting our hardworking troops.”
In addition to Operation Support Our Troops—America, the AAE lists several military organizations and causes to support. For those interested in donating or learning more, visit www.aae.org/supportthetroops, or contact the AAE at

There remains a growing belief among clinicians that obturation is to blame for endodontic failures. This notion has more recently fallen under scrutiny as researchers have discovered that the most thorough obturation can only reflect the quality of the cleaning and shaping of the canal. In fact, a number of researchers point to the thorough use of irrigants — making sure that the debris and irrigant itself are lifted completely out of the canal, not forced out the apex — as the most important determinant in the long-term success of an endodontic procedure.
