The excitement continues during this year’s annual meeting program. We’ve put together an unbeatable combination of educational programs, social and networking opportunities, and our popular exhibit hall. You’ll find:

  • Up to 8 hours of continuing dental and medical education credits.
  • The Keynote Lecture delivered by the guru of OMS anesthesia simulation, Deepak
    Krishnan, DDS, FACS, Chief of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University of
    Cincinnati, and Chair of the AAOMS Committee on Anesthesia, will examine
    simulation as innovative practice for exercising emergency protocols.
  • The Byrd-Tilson-Walker Residents Day program will again showcase some of our most
    talented residents and the research they are conducting at our residency programs.
  • The renowned and wide-ranging Exhibit Hall will offer attendees ample, uninterrupted
    time to learn about the products and services busy OMS practices use every day.

In addition, you will enjoy such fun-filled events as the Thursday evening Welcome Reception, the optional golf tournament, and Friday’s President’s Event.
