Live-dentistry workshops, lectures featured at CDA Presents


For the first time, CDA is partnering with Nobel Biocare and Glidewell Dental to offer some innovative live-dentistry programs at CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry in Anaheim this May.

CDA Presents has developed these formats in our continuing effort to bring new material, innovative presentation and exciting learning opportunities to our members,” said Mark J. Romanelli, DDS, CDA Presents Board of Managers chair.

The live workshops can be attended at the Glidewell International Technology Center and the Nobel Biocare Training Institute. Shuttles will be provided at no cost to transport attendees to and from both off-site locations. Additionally, live video-feed presentations of the workshops will be available free of charge for first-come, first-served seating at the Anaheim Convention Center or for $10 per session for reserved seating.

Glidewell Dental live demonstration
On Friday, May 18, Glidewell Dental will present a live CAD/CAM restoration demonstration (event # 046) from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The full-day workshop will be divided into two sessions — a natural tooth demonstration in the morning and an implant demonstration in the afternoon. Lunch will be provided by Glidewell Dental.

The natural tooth demonstration, led by Justin Chi, DDS, CDT, will show attendees how to restore various indications using a digital workflow, how to select from a range of material choices based on their indications and how to create quality restorations using a chairside mill.

Charles D. Schlesinger, DDS, will present the afternoon implant workshop, demonstrating how digital treatment planning and guided implant placement combine advanced technologies to help minimize discomfort while maximizing the aesthetic and functional outcomes.

The cost to attend is $50 per person with early-bird pricing through April 19 and $55 if purchased after April 19. The shuttle to the Glidewell Technology Center will leave from the convention center promptly at 8:30 a.m. Friday and will return to the convention center after the end of the program.

The morning and afternoon sessions will also be available to attend separately via live video feed at the convention center. The natural tooth demonstration (event # 057) will be from 9:30 a.m. to noon and the implant demonstration (event # 058) will be from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Seats for these free lectures are first-come, first-served or attendees can pay an additional $10 per each session to get a reserved spot.

Nobel Biocare live demonstration
On Saturday, May 19, a live surgery and prosthetic treatment workshop featuring a full-arch prosthetic rehabilitation utilizing the All-on-4 treatment concept (event # 047) will be presented at the Nobel Biocare Training Institute from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

All-on-4 is an innovative technique that allows for an immediate-function, full-arch, implant-supported prosthesis without the need for any bone grafting procedures. Hooman M. Zarrinkelk, DDS, and Sajid A. Jivraj, DDS, BDS, MSEd, will lead the morning and afternoon sessions and lunch will be provided by Nobel Biocare.

The cost to attend is $50 per person with early-bird pricing through April 19 and $55 if purchased after April 19. The shuttle to the Nobel Biocare Training Institute will leave the convention center promptly at 8:30 a.m. Saturday and will return to the convention center after the end of the program.

Nobel Biocare live video feed
As with the Glidewell Dental presentation, the Nobel Biocare workshop morning and afternoon sessions will each be available to attend separately via live video feed at the Anaheim Convention Center. Dr. Zarrinkelk will lead the morning session (event # 064) from 9:30 a.m. to noon., and the afternoon session will be led by Dr. Jivraj from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Seats for these free lectures are first-come, first-served, but reserved seats can also be purchased for $10 per session.

“We are super excited about these programs,” said Nicholas Marongiu, DDS, CDA Presents Board of Managers. “No better way to learn about new exciting procedures than to see them live, step by step.”

Attendees are encouraged to register early for these and other popular workshops and events to secure their spots and for best pricing. For more information, check out the online program at cdapresents.com.

Occurring biannually in Anaheim in the spring and San Francisco in fall, CDA Presents is the nation’s leading dental convention, offering continuing education through more than 200 lectures and workshops, free hourly lectures at The Spot Educational Theater and hundreds of innovative dental products and services on the exhibit hall floor.
