Joining the MES means joining a network of fellow dentists who are enthusiastic about endodontics. Enjoy the fellowship and gain some insights into this intriguing field. Over the years, MES has built up many overseas links. Be on the grapevine for quick access to valuable information related to endodontics. If you want to pick up a few tips on endodontics, this is the place!
Meetings organised by the MES fall into 2 main categories.
Our Evening Lecture Series are popular as these are more social in nature. After a hard day's work, participants get to learn something more about endodontics and enjoy a pleasant dinner at the same time. Although inevitably the conversation turn to dental topics, it is a great way to meet or catch up with friends. The registration fees are nominal as these evening meetings are intended to help bring members together.
The full-day meetings tend to be of a more serious nature thought there is always ample opportunity to socialise during the breaks. The trade booths of our sponsors are also well visited as many of the participants take the opportunity to do some shopping and stock up on items for their clinics! The highlight of the MES is our Annual Scientific Meeting. Presentations in the past have included lectures, hands-on workshops, table clinics, 'live' demonstrations on stage and even special product launches! MES members enjoy substantial concessions on the registration fees.
A much anticipated event is our biennial joint meeting with our colleagues, the Society of Endodontists, Singapore. This year (2006) will be the fifth meeting and it has grown strength to strength with participation from colleagues in Indonesia and even Hong Kong!
Our newsletter brings you information, announcement of events and the latest updates. In addition, members who have access to e-mail will get newsflashes and updates via this medium. The advantage is that members will receive the information much sooner than by post. In the future, we hope to develop an internet-based forum.
As the nature of endodontics is very much hands-on, workshops and courses are the best way to quickly improve your skills. With the presence of well-versed clinicians and lecturers, you stand to benefit much more from these intensive sessions.
This annual publication is put together by the Editor for MES members. It contains a wealth of information ranging from reports of the Society's activities, proceedings from meetings, review of abstracts from other reputable international journals, articles of interest, clinical case reports and updates on dental equipment.
