Vale Assoc. Prof. Ralph Reid 1945-2020
IFEA, the Australian and international endodontic community were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Associate Prof. Ralph Reid, after 15 months of ill health, on the 15th March 2020.
Ralph represented the Australian Society of Endodontology (ASE) Inc in IFEA for many years and served as IFEA Regent for Oceania from 1998 to 2007. He was also long-term Chairperson of the IFEA Education Committee during this time.

Despite these commitments, Ralph was also the motivator and Chairperson for the successful and memorable IFEA 6th World Endodontic Congress in Brisbane, September 2004, hosted by the ASE.
Most significantly to the endodontic community, was Ralph’s extended service as the Editor in Chief of the Australian Endodontic Journal (AEJ) from late 2006 to late 2016.
Ralph was also a longstanding international member of the American Association of Endodontists (AAE). Ralph’s endeavours for the advancement of dentistry were recognised when awarded fellowship to the International College of Dentists and Honorary Life Membership of ASE Inc.
We have lost a dear friend and colleague who enriched our lives – his beloved wife Christine (Chris), cherished children John, Pene, Jill, their spouses Leith, Al, Sean and adored grandchildren Brian (“BJ”) and Callum, Lily and Poppy, have lost much, much more.
We shall continue to cherish our fond memories of Ralph and the devoted service he provided to IFEA.
