A Brief history and overview

The International Federation of Endodontic Associations (IFEA) was formed in 1986. The main aims then were to promote fellowship amongst endodontists and dentists with an interest in endodontics, and their national endodontic associations, and to promote continuing education in endodontics throughout the world. IFEA is an international organization and membership is open to all national endodontic societies and associations in the world. Currently, there are 37 countries enrolled as members as outlined in the Membership Roster. The Officers and Board of Directors of IFEA hope to eventually enroll the national endodontic society from every country in the world and thereby be truly representative of the interests of the profession on a global scale.

Purposes of the federation

In essence, the major aims of IFEA are to promote endodontics and endodontic education throughout the world. It is hoped that this can be achieved through regular meetings such as the World Endodontic Congresses (now to be held every two years), through the web site, by sponsoring lecture tours and through the fostering of personal contact amongst members.

World Endodontic Congress

- this is now to be held every two years in different locations. Previous World Congresses have been held in Mexico (1990), France (1992), Italy (1995),Israel (1998), Spain (2001), Australia (2004), Canada (2007), Greece (2010), Japan (2013) and South Africa (2016). These Congresses attract a large attendance of dentists and endodontists from all parts of the world to hear a wide range of lecturers speaking on many topics of interest to the modern-day practice of endodontics. A typical World Congress will have invited keynote speakers, IFEA Country Representative Lecturers, poster and oral research presentations, clinical case reports, free papers, social events and a large commercial dental trade exhibition.
