Paper mills, peer review- and citation rings, authorships-for-sale, fake authors and affiliations, predatory publishers, and scamferences. How can we recognize these, and how will generative artificial intelligence play a role in detecting or supporting these fraudulent groups?

A 26-year-old dental school graduate applying for an endodontic residency in 2024, born in 1998, belongs to Generation Z. As this demographic increasingly represents the majority in Advanced Dental Education Residencies, determining effective strategies to engage and teach them is of critical importance for educators.
This short-form essay will explore endodontic education's present landscape and its potential trajectory. It will discuss the experiences of residents transitioning from dental school or early restorative dental practice into endodontic residency, the influence of emerging technologies, and the continued effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on endodontic education. These topics will be analyzed with a focus on educating this particular generation and understanding their similarities and differences compared to preceding generations.
This presentation will incorporate insights from the presenter's transition from private practice to academia, exploring the challenges and opportunities that exist in this role. An emphasis will be on balancing technical endodontic training with the development of compassionate, patient-centered clinicians. The importance of resilience, innovation, and ongoing learning in our rapidly changing specialty will be highlighted. The lecture will conclude with a discussion on fostering a culture of excellence and empathy in endodontic education, serving as a call to action for the endodontic community.
