Post a comment by Dental Tribune America

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., USA: The 47th annual session of the American College of Prosthodontists is taking place in San Francisco from Nov. 1 to 4. Today, prosthodontists are taking on cases that were never before treatable. However, evolving technologies and changing practice models are about to upend decades of thinking about who we are and what we do as specialists.

“Transforming Prosthodontics” is designed to bridge the gap between current practice and future trends. Led by Program Chair Dr. Lars Bouma and President Dr. Susan E. Brackett, this meeting will delve into surgical foundations, challenging restorations, digital solutions and much more.

The meeting is packed with focused, intensive education sessions throughout the course of four days — including “Virtual Treatment from Diagnosis to Prosthetic Care,” an immersive experience presented live and in 3-D.

Dr. Ann Wei, Dr. Arun Sharma, Dr. Sara Hahn and Dr. Fiorella Potesta-Knoll live and practice in the Bay Area. Their recommendations for dining, entertainment and activities are helping make a visit to San Francisco an unforgettable experience. Their tips are online, at www.prosthodontics.org/assets/1/7/San_Francisco_Guides.pdf.

In the beautiful city of San Francisco, attendees can enjoy great restaurants and a week full of workshops, receptions and social events with old friends and colleagues — the people who understand your passion for excellence in patient care.

The ACP Annual Session is the premier meeting of the American College of Prosthodontists, which actively promotes the meeting to more than 3,800 members and affiliates internationally including prosthodontists, dental technicians, dental students and other dental professionals who have significantly contributed to the specialty.
