Dear Colleague, my name is Stefan V Stefanescu, I am a dentist with a special interest in Endodontology.

Thank you for following me to this point.

What is the purpose of this study?

Nowadays endodontists have multiple and diverse sources of information regarding various treatment protocols, materials, and techniques used in endodontology. The present study is focusing on endodontists’ choice as to which protocols and materials they use preferentially in their day-to-day root canal treatments. The aim of the study is to assess if there is any difference in concepts, protocols or materials used by the members of the BES. 

Why have I been chosen?

You have been chosen because you are member of BES.

Will my taking part in the study be kept confidential?
