Unique continuing education courses await at ADA 2017

July 14, 2017

By David Burger

— Dental sleep medicine. Implant dentistry. Computer-aided design of restorations.

All of the above are just some of the diverse continuing education courses being offered at ADA 2017 – America’s Dental Meeting in Atlanta Oct. 19-23.

“I feel we have a slate of programs that appeals to everyone in the dental community,” said Dr. Douglas Wyckoff, 2017 annual meeting CE chair. “All courses — especially courses that are included in the registration fee — fill up first and tend to be the most popular, so I would definitely encourage everyone to register early and get signed up for the classes that each person wants to be a part of before they fill up and sell out."

The annual meeting will feature many special interest tracks, including those featuring dental sleep medicine, dental specialties, health and wellness, dental hygiene and dental assisting.

In addition, the Technology Experience Area on the exhibit floor will once again host the 2017 Cellerant Best of Class technology winners, accompanied by opportunities to learn the latest solutions from how to optimize brands to the integration of digital workflow technology into practices.

Also returning are Campfire Sessions, where dental professionals can join their colleagues for one-hour, small and informal group discussions throughout the Georgia World Congress Center. The Campfire Sessions each offer one hour of CE credit and will have three different formats:

  • Continue the conversation: Extend the conversation with expert speakers and thought leaders by asking questions following their courses.
  • Peer-to-peer knowledge exchanges: Meet and discuss defined topics and exchange ideas in this learning environment.
  • Ask the experts: Experts lead the discussion on dentistry’s hottest topics. Participants are asked to bring questions, case examples and subject matter theories to share with the group.
Campfire Session topics include health care policy, dental technology, social media, cosmetic/esthetic dentistry, implant dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, restorative dentistry, women in dentistry and dental specialties.

Advanced clinical education programming will once again include hands-on cadaver workshops, other hands-on courses, the ADA Science Institute Stage and live-patient computer-assisted design/computer-assisted manufacturing courses.
