Teachers of Endodontology Group
The teaching of endodontology and endodontics is an essential component of the undergraduate curriculum. The Teachers of Endodontology Group is affiliated to the British Endodontic Society and provides an opportunity for individuals whose involvement in endodontics may range from occasional teaching to those who co-ordinate courses and delivery of treatment to share concerns, compare curricula and contribute to future strategies. This forum enables discussion about common issues, interaction with colleagues and provides an update on a number of selected topics.
To date the group has met every eighteen months with two delegates from each undergraduate dental school being nominated by their school to attend a one day meeting.
Those of you who have attended on previous occasions will know that the meetings are informal, productive, strategic and above all, uniquely collegial.
