Article

This year's meeting will feature 45 courses and more than 30 new speakers.

The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) will hold its 104th annual meeting Oct. 27-30, 2018, at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia. The event is presented in collaboration with the Canadian Academy of Periodontology, the Japanese Academy of Clinical Periodontology and the Japanese Society of Periodontology. All dental professionals-including students, early-career periodontists, hygienists, office staff and members of the dental media-are encouraged to attend.

This year’s meeting, which provides up to 25.5 continuing education credits, features 45 courses and more than 30 new speakers. Ten redesigned program tracks include oral pathology, oral medicine and oral diagnosis; emerging concepts and innovative therapies; implant surgery and prosthetic rehabilitation; and periodontal plastic and soft tissue surgery.

“With a roster of periodontics’ sharpest minds leading our many courses and events, this year’s annual meeting is set to be a gathering of our specialty’s best and brightest from around the world,” says Steven R. Daniel, DDS, president of the AAP. “Attendees will have the opportunity to curate their experiences, and with the return of our Dental Hygiene Symposium, Student and New Periodontist series, and the Insurance Coding Workshops, there’s something for everyone in the field.”
