The goal of this year’s Annual Meeting is to provide attendees with the most current information based on what has been learned for obtaining predictable results in implant therapy. The overall objective is to evaluate clinical, technological and biological breakthroughs made in implant dentistry. These advances will be explored relative to their influences on clinical practice.
Our aim is to provide a comprehensive program including addressing current challenges and solutions in both restorative and surgical techniques currently in use today including surgical and prosthodontic treatment planning, maintaining implant success, team management and solving implant complications. Information will be presented on team treatment collaborations, treatment options for edentulous patients and what the future holds in implant dentistry.
The ultimate goal is to provide the attendee information on the most predictable and proven techniques to integrate into clinical practice to improve patient care.
This program is targeting toward everyone who has an interest in implant therapy. This includes: students in training programs; dentists with limited experience and specialists with extensive training in implant dentistry; auxiliary staff, including hygienists, assistants and laboratory personnel. The educational method for this program is lecture only. No credit is available for the Hands-On Workshop sessions.
