Glidewell, a leader in dental education and a technological innovator in restorative dentistry for 50 years, has announced the fourth annual Glidewell Symposium. Scheduled for Nov. 6–7, 2020, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, the event will provide practical clinical education and business strategies designed to make an immediate difference in dental practices. Topics will cover all phases of general dentistry, from restorative techniques and materials to dental implants and tissue regeneration, in-office scanning and milling, dental sleep medicine, and practice management. Attendees will earn 12 hours of continuing education units.
“We are excited to bring the Glidewell Symposium to Southern California this year,” said Dr. Neil Park, scientific chair of the Glidewell Symposium and vice president of clinical affairs at Glidewell. “Building on the success of our previous events, we’re gathering more than 20 speakers — these are educators, thought leaders and practicing clinicians — to share their best practices and clinical insights. We’ll once again provide our unique two-day educational format that has proven to be very popular, while also presenting even more opportunities for attendees to explore the rewarding field of dentistry.”
On the first day of the symposium, the general session will feature a concise, powerful format, with inspiring presentations designed to offer solutions to the challenges of everyday dentistry. Keynotes will be presented by Dr. Gordon J. Christensen, renowned prosthodontist and cofounder of Gordon J. Christensen Clinicians Report®, and Dr. Jack Hahn, an implant-dentistry pioneer who has been placing and restoring implants for five decades. These recognized experts will share stories about their clinical research and wisdom gained as practicing dentists.
On the second day of the event, attendees can choose from several tracks for focused, in-depth lectures, and hone in on clinical information, tools and techniques to better serve their patients. In addition, following Saturday’s focused tracks, all attendees will be invited to the Glidewell Expo, a hosted barbecue and VIP party at the Glidewell campus in nearby Newport Beach. Free transportation will be provided, and the afternoon event will include hands-on educational programs, a tour of Glidewell’s Intelligent Manufacturing center, and a variety of other fun activities. On both days of the symposium, attendees will also be able to browse interactive exhibits featuring 3D printing, intraoral scanning, in-office milling, the CAD/CAM workflow, dental implants, and regenerative and restorative materials.
“We’re working around the clock to make the Glidewell Symposium bigger and better than ever before — with world-class clinical education, affordable tuition, a great location, and a memorable experience designed to fuel each attendee’s success for years to come,” said Dr. Park.
The 2020 Glidewell Symposium is for dentists, hygienists, and chairside and front-office staff. Tuition for both days is $325. Early bird pricing is available for $275 when registering by May 1, 2020. Tuition includes a complimentary breakfast, lunch and cocktail reception with hosted bar on Friday, as well as a complimentary breakfast and exciting afternoon programs, food and entertainment on Saturday. Because last year’s symposium was a sold-out event, attendees are encouraged to register early to secure their seats.
