Special Care Dentistry Association meeting April 14-17

January 06, 2016

Providers of oral health care to patients with special needs are invited to the 23rd International Association for Disability & Oral Health Congress in conjunction with the Special Care Dentistry Association’s Annual Meeting.

Registration is open for the April 14-17 event in Chicago.

Continuing education and workshops related to anesthesia/sedation, how special care dentistry is evolving around the world, and coagulopathy and orofacial pain are among the topics covered.

Furthermore, a National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research grant is funding a special symposium April 16 during the meeting: Developmental Disorders of the Dentition Symposium. This will feature scientific presentations, lectures and facilitated discussion sessions, including Current Understanding of the Process of Tooth Formation by Dr. Irma Thesleff, professor and research director at the Institute of Biotechnology at the University of Helsinki (in Finland); and Agenesis of Teeth, Genetic Mutations and Syndromes, by Michael J. Kern, Ph.D., professor at the Medical University of South Carolina.

Attendees can go to the symposium without participating in the annual meeting. Early bird registration ends Jan. 23.

The views expressed in written conference materials or publications and by speakers and moderators at the symposium do not necessarily reflect the official policies of the Department of Health and Human Services; nor does mention by trade names, commercial practices, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. government, according to the Special Care Dentistry Association.
