ATHENS, Greece: After a successful event in Prague in the Czech Republic in May 2022, which was attended by more than 400 people from 42 countries, the organisers of ROOTS SUMMIT have announced the dates and venue for next year’s edition. The endodontic meeting will be held from 9 to 12 May 2024 at the Eugenides Foundation in Athens. Attendees can look forward to the usual high-calibre clinical practice and technique tips, intended for immediate incorporation into practice.

“ROOTS SUMMIT 2024 will feature speakers from nine countries, each of whom will bring significant scientific credibility and authority to the benefit of every participant’s clinical practice. Our scientific director, Dr David E. Jaramillo, is well known for putting together unrivalled scientific programmes,” said ROOTS SUMMIT Co-Chairman Stephen Jones.

Topics will include irrigation and disinfection of root canals, restoration of endodontically treated teeth, the effect of radiotherapy on dental structures, root canal blockage management and the rationale for the management of complex, borderline cases in endodontics.

“One of our speakers will be Dr Mitsuhiro Tsukiboshi from Japan. The American Association of Endodontists describes Dr Tsukiboshi as the ‘world’s leading authority on auto-transplantation of teeth’ on its website. His lecture on auto-transplantation of teeth as part of complex treatment plans is not to be missed,” emphasised Jones.

Just like for previous events, hands-on courses will be offered. The details regarding these will be announced later in the year.

Taking place in the Greek capital, the meeting will be hosted in a city that offers a myriad of ancient monuments, temples, ruins and churches. ROOTS SUMMIT 2024 is to be held in the conference halls of the Eugenides Foundation, a landmark building complex right next to the waterside, but still close to the city centre. Two large lecture halls and two floors for exhibition assure enough space to showcase, get together and educate. A special highlight will be the foundation’s planetarium, which ROOTS SUMMIT attendees can visit during the conference days.

“The Eugenides Foundation has been hosting scientific and technical education events for over 60 years in its purpose-built lecture theatre. In the last 20 years alone, the fully renovated conference and lecture rooms have hosted over 1,400 Greek and international events and welcomed 470,000 participants,” commented Jones.


ROOTS SUMMIT meetings have been enjoyed by participants for more than 20 years. The first meeting was held in 1999 in Toronto in Canada, and many events all over the world followed, having taken place in the US, the Netherlands, Mexico, Spain, Brazil, India, the UAE, Germany and the Czech Republic.

Registration for the event will soon be possible, and an early bird discount will be available.

More information on the programme and speakers can be found on the ROOTS SUMMIT website. News will also be posted regularly on the event’s Facebook page.
