CAED Meeting

The 2nd Annual CAED meeting was part of the largest dental program in Canada this year: the FDI; the CDA, the JDQ and CAED meetings all took place in Montreal last week. On the Saturday and Sunday, the CAED cosmetic/esthetic program was the clinical mainstay of the Congress.

The strong line-up of clinical speakers included :Michael Miller and Howard Glazer on dental products and materials ; Jordan Soll, Ed Lowe, Gary Radz, Sunil Bhoolabhai and Tony Mancuso on clinical/esthetic cases ; Wolfgang Richter on bleaching ; Trevor Laingchild on ceramics ; Brian Saby on case presentation ; Guylaine Raymond on lasers ; and Bill Turner on certification.The keynote address was presented by the Honourable Francis Fox, recently named to the Canadian senate.

There were great social and networking events as well. The Friday night cocktail reception was nec plus ultra . This was followed by Saturday’s Dinner-on-the-Town at Maevva Restaurant, in the heart of Molson Indy festivities. Needless to say, a great time was had by all.

With an attendance of more than 150 people from 8 provinces and 7 countries, plus 5 sponsors and exhibitors, this year’s meeting surpassed not just last year’s figures but the expectations of the CAED itself. Many CAED members were recognized and thanked for their contributionsBill Turner, for developing the Certification criteria, Jordan Soll for his work on the bylaws, and Ira Hoffman for his work integrating with the Universities and for getting the student attendance.

The CAED believes in study and play, and providing an opportunity for colleagues to share expertise and cameraderie.
