The 36th Annual American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) Scientific Session in Orlando April 22 – 25, will feature two world-renowned dental professionals, Dr. John C. Kois, and Dr. Iñaki Gamborena. Each year, the Professional Education Committee (PEC) works diligently to program the highest quality education possible and 2020 is no exception. These headlining educational lectures are included in attendees’ all-inclusive tuition package meaning attendees do not have to pay per course. All conference attendees are encouraged to attend these headlining educators’ presentations.
Dr. Kois, the Founder and Director of the Kois Center, received his DMD from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine and his Certificate in Periodontal Prosthodontics with a MSD degree from the University of Washington, School of Dentistry. He currently maintains a private practice limited to Prosthodontics in Tacoma and Seattle and is an Affiliate Professor in the Graduate Restorative Program at the University of Washington.
Dr. Kois will be presenting, “Does Your Dataset Match Your Mindset: Understanding Clinical Failures”, Saturday, April 25, 9:00 am – 4:15 pm. Dr. Kois’ presentation will provide conceptual framework for clinical practice that is simple to implement and will create a paradigm shift in the way attendees interface with their patients and collect data. In addition, the program will introduce new dental software that will link the benefits of evidence-based science to clinical protocols. The results will provide dental professionals with all the necessary analysis to improve quality assurance and seamlessly integrate new, developing technologies.
Dr. Gamborena received his dental degree from Universidad Odontológica Dominicana in 1989. He then pursued his post graduate training in the U.S. with a certificate in Prosthodontics and Master of Science degree in Dentistry from the University of Washington in 1996. Dr. Gamborena is currently an Affiliate Professor at the University of Washington, an assistant professor at the department of preventive and restorative sciences at the University of Pennsylvania, and clinical assistant professor at the department of periodontics at Medical College of Georgia.
Dr. Gamborena will be presenting, “Key Surgical and Prosthetic Considerations to Achieve Optimal Esthetic Outcomes in the Esthetic Area”, Friday, April 24 | 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. This course will have two focuses: the first on the different clinical criteria, sequencing / timing and current surgical-prosthetic techniques for maximizing optimal and predictable aesthetic outcomes in the anterior zone, and the second on how to achieve gingival integration and aesthetic success involving complex aesthetic failures on implants and natural teeth.
The 36th Annual AACD Scientific Session headlining speakers will ultimately open the minds of attendees so they can challenge themselves to be their best and reach their goals.
