Pulp Fiction 09

Endodontic’s Enthusiasts Meeting Pulp Fiction 9
6th – 9th of December 2007.

Look how the time flies.. It’s the ninth time we’ve met to exchange our endo experience, to listen and discuss to the most prominent specialists in the field. The idea of first Pulp Fiction Meetings, that I’ve organized years ago is still alive, although both character and the topics are constantly changing according to progress in science and technology.
However, the remarkable atmosphere of this meeting, created by a group of real endo enthusiasts, hasn’t changed. This event is an opportunity to share everyday problems and sucesses, and of course to have fun in a good company.
