09.06.2022 — 12.06.2022
Every 3 years since 1983, the beautiful city of Boston hosts the return of the International Symposium on Periodontics & Restorative Dentistry, and 2022 will be no exception. Our program will focus on the core elements that set this symposium apart—most notably a distinguished program featuring an internationally renowned group of clinicians, researchers, and academics to share their cutting-edge information.
As in years past, this meeting is expected to be characterized as a "can’t miss event" in continuing dental education. It is an opportunity to mingle with thought leaders and fellow professionals and to discover an authentic sense of camaraderie.
The topics presented and debated at the 14th Symposium will address clinical therapeutics including periodontics, oral surgery, implantology, orthodontics, and restorative dentistry as they interrelate in multidisciplinary dentistry. We are confident that you will return from the symposium to your office, laboratory, or university with a renewed enthusiasm for our profession.
Presented by the Quintessence International Publishing Group, publisher of The International Journal of Periodontics & Restorative Dentistry, and co-sponsored by the American Academy of Periodontology, this symposium addresses current trends in these dental fields as well as implant and esthetic dentistry. The symposium offers three cutting-edge sessions daily, presented by internationally recognized speakers, including the following formats: live lecture sessions involving case studies, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops. Participants can attend any sessions they wish. Pre-symposium workshops are also available for an additional fee.
