CHICAGO, U.S.: The American Association of Endodontists has announced that endodontic educator and Journal of Endodontics Editor-in-Chief Dr. Kenneth M. Hargreaves has been awarded the American Dental Associations’ (ADA) Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Dental Research.

As a prolific researcher, Hargreaves’ focus areas—pain management and regenerative endodontics—are changing the way endodontists treat patients and introducing cutting-edge treatments that, not too long ago, were not even possible. He received a $25,000 honorarium, a gold medallion and the opportunity to serve a three-year term as a member of the ADA's Council on Scientific Affairs. Hargreaves will also be recognized with the honor on October 18, during a ceremony at ADA 2018 in Honolulu.

“Dr. Hargreaves is among the most well-known and respected endodontists in the country and a much sought-after speaker, drawing standing-room-only crowds at lectures around the world,” said AAE President Dr. Patrick E. Taylor. “A diligent steward of the AAE’s scientific journal, Dr. Hargreaves leads the Journal of Endodontics with extraordinary skill, managing a tremendous workload with great care and efficiency.”

The Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Dental Research is sponsored by the American Dental Association together with Church & Dwight. Established in 1985 and presented every three years, the award honors individuals who, through basic or clinical research, have contributed to the advancement of the profession of dentistry or to major improvement in the oral health of the public.
