The International Federation of Endodontic Associations (IFEA) is the world's largest association representing the national endodontic associations of 42 nations globally. Indian Endodontic Society, the national endodontic association of India and member society of IFEA, hosted the 12th IFEA World Endodontic Congress as an online congress from August 12 to 14, 2021.

This hugely successful congress had more than 70 invited guest lectures from eminent clinicians, researchers, and academicians. The congress had more than 3500 delegates and students participating worldwide. The delegate and student scientific presentations were conducted as online presentations on July 31 and August 1, 2021, with the best scientific presentations of each session being awarded and selected to present during the main congress held on August 12–14, 2021. A total number of 1170 scientific presentations were conducted during the congress.

An eminent jury headed by Dr. David Jaramillo, Chairman of the Research Committee of the IFEA, selected the best presentation awards in both student and delegate categories. The following were the deserving winners:
