Dentistry's biggest names headline CDA Presents


Dental professionals from around the world attend CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry to learn about the latest clinical and technological advances in the industry, earn C.E. and network.

In the process, they hear from some of dentistry’s most captivating speakers, which will be the case at CDA Presents in San Francisco on Aug. 20 to 22.

A series of cadaver dissection workshops will teach attendees about the indications and contraindications for functional and esthetic crown lengthening surgery; predictable outcomes for vertical and horizontal ridge contours and attached gingiva; key anatomical relationships in the orofacial region; recognizing the anatomical factors relating to vascular pain that may mimic odontogenic or temporomandibular-related issues; and more.

In addition, there are other lectures and workshops that give both dentists and their staff an opportunity to learn new things about the profession. One specific lecture, titled Ultimate Dental Boot Camp: No-Shows and Cancellations, New Patients, More Treatment, will show dentists and staff how to see more new patients, perform more treatment and reduce no-shows. The lecture will focus on understanding how better intraoffice communication will make for a more enjoyable work experience.
