About Us

The Endodontic Society of South Africa (ESSA) is an official sub group of the South African Dental Association. As the name implies ESSA is concerned with the speciality of endodontics.
 
Endodontics is that part of dentistry concerned with the inner part of the tooth, commonly referred to as the nerve of the tooth.
 
It most often finds expression in root canal therapy but it also includes other treatments such as diagnosis of orofacial pain, pulp capping, tooth bleaching and apical surgery.

The Endodontic Society of South Africa is proud to announce that we have won the right to stage the 2016 congress of IFEA (International federation of Endodontic Associations) here in South Africa. The congress is held every three years and it is a great honour to be chosen as the hosting country. We have decided to host 2016's congress in Cape Town. Watch this space for updates.
