Make a date in your diary for the upcoming BES Regional Meeting. We are hosting a great mix of keynote speakers, table clinics, conference dinner, trade exhibition and endless opportunities for networking. We will be at the beautiful Principal Hotel in Manchester - we hope to see you there. Registration Registration will take place on Friday 22nd November between 09.00 and 10.00 hrs in the Whitworth Suite. Table clinics There will be four Table Clinics but there is no need to pre-book a place as delegates will have the opportunity to attend each one throughout the morning. Conference dinner This will be held on Friday 22nd November in the Ballroom at the hotel. There will be a Drinks Reception from 19.30 pm and the dinner will commence at 20.00 pm. After dinner entertainment will include

Speaker: Dr Gilberto Debelian
Dr. Gilberto Debelian, DMD, PhD Endo Inn, Oslo, Norway
Dr. Debelian has completed his specialization in Endodontics from the University of Pennsylvania, USA in 1991 and received the Louis I. Grossman student award in Endodontics.
He has taught as a clinical instructor and associate professor at the endodontic program at University of Oslo (UIO), Norway from 1991 to 2010. He has concluded his PhD studies at UIO in 1997, which gave him two scientific awards from the European Society of Endodontology (ESE) and from the Norwegian Dental Association both in 1997. He is an adjunct visiting professor at the post-graduate program in endodontics at University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Debelian maintains a private practice limited to endodontics as well as an advance endodontic microscopy center – ENDO INN in Oslo, Norway.
Dr. Debelian has authored 6 chapter books in Endodontics, one book in Endodontics and written more than 80 scientific and clinical papers.
Three-dimensional cleaning and shaping in endodontics: clinical applications and research
Recently a new NiTi wire (MaxWire™) and instrument system (XP-endo®) have been introduced aiming an anatomically driven instrumentation of different root canal anatomies. Using the principles of shape memory of NiTi alloy the MaxWire was developed to be malleable at room temperature (Martensite phase) and transform to a specific shape at body temperature inside the root canal (Austenite phase). XP-endo instruments are designed for 3 uses: 1-XP-endo Shaper – one file for the 3D shaping of the canal; 2-XP-endo Finisher – used after the Shaper (or traditional round files) in order to reach tissues or debris not reached in the shaping phase and 3-XP-endo Retreatment – to efficiently remove obturation materials from the root canal walls left behind after shaping instruments have been used.
Preliminary studies on XP-endo files have shown remarkable efficiency for maintaining the original shape of the canal while producing less dentinal debris blocking the irregular areas or isthmus areas. In addition, even though minimal number of instruments is used, almost no stress is produced on the canal walls. This presentation will explore the technical, biological and clinical aspects of this new three-dimensional cleaning and shaping in endodontics.
At conclusion, participants should be able to:
1. Understand the technological challenges of traditional endodontic instruments to predictably clean the root canal.
2. Present the physical and clinical characteristics of the new XP-endo files
3. Demonstrate the clinical use of XP-endo files in primary and retreatment cases
4. Present the latest on-going and published studies
