Get close to the action with an Education in the Round course

Award-winning CE format features live-patient learning

New Orleans—Back for its seventh year, the ADA's award-winning Education in the Round courses bring the dental operatory into the classroom at the 2013 Annual Session, giving learners a chance to experience live-patient procedures in real time.

"The Education in the Round courses are valuable education opportunities because participants are able to experience procedures during a live, hands-on demonstration performed right in front of them," said Dr. Gregory J. Peppes, Council on ADA Sessions program chair. "This allows participants to witness the obstacles that may occur while performing this particular procedure on a live patient."

The 2012 Annual Session netted three E.X.C.I.T.E. Awards June 19 from Expo magazine, a publication serving the trade show industry, including the Editor's Choice Award for best overall event, along with wins in Best Application of Content/Education on the Showfloor and Best Use of Audiovisual to Enhance an Event. The awards recognize a variety of continuing education innovations, including the ADA's unique EIR courses.

This year's EIR presenters will demonstrate a variety of procedures, including placing veneers with the "tack and wave" technique; administering Botox and dermal fillers for esthetic and therapeutic uses; extraction site management and grafting for implant reconstruction; crown and fixed prosthesis treatment and use of scanners and in-office milling; denture fabrication including impressions and efficient occlusal rim procedures; and complete fabrication of an implant overdenture prosthesis.

"We have six topics with six different speakers who are considered to be the premier experts in their field," said Dr. Peppes. "This is a great opportunity to learn from the best."

The cost for these courses is $69 each.
