DC: Recognizing implant dentistry‘s global reach,the Academy of
Osseointegration will introduce an International Symposium to highlight
clinical research,technology and treatment advances that may be
unfamiliar to U.S.-based practitioners during the its 2011 Annual
Meeting, taking place March 3 to 5 in Washington, D.C.
This focus on international innovations is
part of the meeting’s overall theme, “Back to the Future: Combining
Fundamental Principles with New Technologies for the Next 25 Years.” The
theme will serve as a guide for applying the knowledge gleaned during
the last quarter century to the technology of tomorrow, Annual Meeting
Program Committee Chair Dr. Tara Aghaloo of Los Angeles said.
“The 2011 annual meeting will illustrate that the most effective
technological advances will reinforce fundamental principles and improve
outcomes,” she said. “To maintain the credibility of our rapidly
growing field, we must avoid embracing technologies that do neither.”
