ABOUT US

The Langham Study Group is a self funded organisation that was created in 1997 following an idea by Simon Cunnington and a small group of forward looking practitioners.  That idea was to create a forum for Endodontists to meet, share their knowledge and continue learning together.

With a name inspired by an old London telephone area,  its members began to meet regularly to share their expertise and network with other practitioners across the UK.  Shortly after, guest speakers were attracted to the study group to present on important topics and advances within the field of Endodontics.   

Over two decades later, over 60 guest speakers have presented to the group which is now made up of an established community of practitioner and academic members.

 

Attracting national and international speakers and meeting three times a year at the British Dental Association in London, the Langham Study Group continues to further  the professional development of its members at the forefront of Endodontology.

The vision of the Langham Endodontic Study Group is to contribute to the development of experienced, newly qualified and training Endodontic professionals.  

 

Our purpose is to bring speakers at the forefront of research, innovation and techniques to share their knowledge and experience with our members  in a relaxed learning environment.
