Dear Colleagues,
The Asian Pacific Endodontic Confederation (APEC), the Korean Academy of Endodontics (KAE) and Japan Endodontic Association (JEA) are going to co-host the 15th APEC Scientific Congress which will be held in Tokyo, Japan on Friday, 24th April to Sunday, 26th April 2009.
Welcome to Tokyo, Japan! APEC and KAE-JEA would cordially like to invite you all to the special session of APEC –“The Fusion of Science and Modern Art”-.
APEC was founded in 1985 for the promotion and development of high standards of endodontic research, teaching and clinical practice in the Asia Pacific region. Great emphasis has been placed on biological aspects of endodontic lesions, and recently clinical arts have been in the headline (eg, conventional and surgical techniques using microscopes, retreatment with MTA, laser application, etc.). The internationally renowned and distinguished speakers will update these fields, and we hope the APEC 2009 Scientific Meeting will fulfill not only academic demands but professional relationship among us.
In addition to the specially organized session, we encourage you to participate in free topic presentations in any field of endodontics. We believe that presentations and discussion are the best way to get together and share information on the frontier of endodontic science.
Once again, we welcome you all to Tokyo, and we are sure that you will enjoy the Meeting and also beautiful Japan. Thank you.


Cordially,
Nobuyuki Tani-Ishii, DDS, PhD
Chair, 15th APEC & KAE-JEA Conference
