AAP Annual Meeting in Boston offers plenty to learn

Post a comment by Fred Michmershuizen, DTA

BOSTON, Mass, USA: There is a lot to learn here at the 2017 AAP Annual Meeting in Boston. The classrooms are filled with thought leaders eager to share their knowledge, and on the exhibit hall floor many companies have brought in experts to share their expertise in an up-close manner.

Highlights from Sunday included the opening general session, titled “On the Edge: The Art of High-Impact Leadership,” in which renowned mountain climber Alison Levine told attendees about climbing Mount Everest and what the experience taught her about leadership. A welcome reception, sponsored by Straumann, was held in late afternoon on the exhibit hall floor, with entertainment, beverages and food. Straumann also treated everyone to beer tastings at its booth.

A popular area of the exhibit hall is the AAP’s poster presentations, which offer a platform for researchers to discuss their findings. Also on the show floor, Perio Park — the AAP’s first-ever exhibit hall “green space” — gives meeting attendees a place to relax, hold conversations with colleagues, charge electronic devices and view a job board.

Highlights in the lecture halls include “Treatment of the Malposed Implant,” presented by Dr. Markus B. Hürzeler, Dr. Joseph Kan and Dr. Dennis Tarnow and moderated by Dr. Nick Caplanis; and “The Team Approach for Predictable Implant Esthetics,” presented by Dr. Farhad E. Boltchi and moderated by Dr. Leonard Garfinkel.

Many of the companies exhibiting in Boston have new and innovative offerings to show to meeting attendees.
