The BES Regional Meeting will, this year, be a three day conference, adding to its programme, the postponed Spring Scientific Meeting. The Meeting will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon. The Meeting will consist of an exciting scientific programme, a poster display on the Thursday, an exhibition, and a Dinner on the Friday night with a live band. Dress Code: Formal or Black Tie Delegates will have the option of registering for the Thursday only; the Friday and Saturday; or all three days. Please note, the Early Registration Rate will end 23.59 hrs on Wednesday 6th October. Prices will increase by £50 after this date. Unfortunately the hotel is now full for bedroom bookings but there are alternative hotels nearby. The BES is also taking this opportunity to launch its 'Early Careers Group'

Research / Clinical Use of Bioceramic Root Canal Sealers: Mind The Gap!
This presentation aims to discuss the clinical use of hydraulic calcium silicate-based sealers for obturation of the root canal space. Given the fact that these sealers grow in popularity over time, it seems essential to clarify why, when and how to use them. Hydraulic sealers have been extensively investigated in in vitro / ex vivo studies highlighting their eccellent biological and physicochemical properties. The specificities of calcium silicate-based sealers raise new questions connecting the research on these materials and their clinical use which has been reported to be strongly variable between practitioners and more based on their clinical habits than on the available knowledge. At the end of this presentation, the participants should be aware of the advantages/limitations of calcium silicate-based sealers, their most relevant indications and how their selection impacts the endodontic clinical procedure.
