A word from the President

Dear colleagues,

In June 2023, you elected the new board of directors for the FSE (French Society of Endodontics). This new board of directors has chosen me for a 2-year mandate, and the members of the executive committee are as follows: Mathieu Durand (VP), Nicolas Gardon (DRE), Frédéric Bukiet (DS), Dorothée Louis Olszewski (DRP), Anne Colin (SG), Laurent Arbona (SGA), and Olivier Claudon (Treasurer).

I am both delighted and honored to lead the FSE during the upcoming term from 2023 to 2025. We are currently experiencing pivotal years with significant developments in our profession, especially concerning practitioners who have a limited focus on endodontics, forming a growing and distinct community. Patient communication has also evolved, and efforts must be made to help them better understand the importance of our discipline in terms of public health.

To meet the various challenges that lie ahead for the SFE, I believe it is essential to:

  • Assert our ROLE and POSITION on the INTERNATIONAL stage.
  • Promote EXCELLENCE in Endodontics.
  • Play a LOBBYING role in advocating for the establishment of a specialized field and/or recognition of specific competencies in Endodontics.
  • Foster a “SFE” COMMUNITY in both French and English.
  • Maintain SFE’s role and position in MANDATORY CONTINUING EDUCATION.
  • Support and strengthen the work carried out by our DELEGATIONS.
  • Promote RESEARCH in Endodontics.
  • Defend and advocate for the INTERESTS OF ENDODONTICS to maintain teeth on the arch and overall oral health.
  • Collaborate with and develop PARTNERSHIPS WITH INDUSTRY players related to Endodontics.
  • Ensure its sustainability through sound and effective ADMINISTRATION AND FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT.
  • Enhance the SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY of the SFE.

This ambitious strategic plan can only be realized through a cohesive team effort with the entire board of directors and with your support and active participation during our key events (scientific conferences, international congresses, special days) and various activities (national training modules, regional delegation activities, research awards, patient communication, etc.).

The SFE stands for Uniting Knowledge in Endodontics, Mastering Skills in Endodontics, and Educating in Endodontics.

Sincerely yours,

Alexis Gaudin

President of the French Society of Endodontics (FSE)
