The 2021 Annual Session of the American College of Prosthodontists, titled ‘Collaborations: The Key to Excellent Outcomes,’ is taking place virtually, Oct. 26-30, 2021!
Led by Program Chair Dr. Alvin G. Wee and ACP President Dr. Mark C. Hutten, this year’s event focuses on how working collaboratively with other practitioners, physicians, laboratories, and industry partners can provide the best outcomes for the prosthodontic patient.
This five-day virtual meeting will highlight five pillars of connection with Medicine, Technology, Materials, Dental Specialties, and Techniques. Attendees will learn new strategies and skills to better collaborate, that can be immediately implemented in day-to-day practice.
All educational sessions take place in the afternoon and evening throughout the week, and are moderated by past presidents of various dental organizations, with speakers from the fields of digital technology, dental materials, public health, radiology, sleep medicine, dental ethics, technique innovators, anesthesiology, and additional dental specialties.
Your registration for this meeting includes up to 23 hours of continuing education, access to all education sessions as they happen live, on-demand access to all education for a year, opportunities for speaker Q&A, exclusive corporate content, access to all social events, and more!
