Collaboration is the key to success for the modern cosmetic dental team. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s 27th Annual Scientific Session, themed, “The Rise of Collaboration,” will provide an opportunity for dental teams to develop and refine their skills together so they can provide their patients with the best oral health care.

The conference, May 18-21, 2011, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, will feature more than 48 hands-on workshops, 85 lectures, and 90 speakers. The event is geared toward dentists, lab technicians, hygienists, and dental team members to help them achieve success through collaboration while learning from the cosmetic dentistry profession’s greatest educators.

“Boston will be an amazing meeting,” said AACD President Hugh Flax, DDS, “because we truly focus on how the best restorative dentists-as well as specialists and ceramists-collaborate to create masterful results in very challenging and simple situations.” 

Gary Radz, DDS, Professional Education Committee co-chair, added, “Emerging technologies, new clinical techniques, team-based courses, and practice management strategies are the basis for the world’s premier cosmetic dental continuing education event.”

  • Harald Heymann, DDS, Med
