Glidewell Dental Symposium Scheduled for October

Dentistry Today


The Glidewell Dental Symposium has been scheduled for October 19-20, 2018, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Md. The event will include more than a dozen educators, with a first day of fast-paced presentations and a second day of in-depth clinical and business training.

“This period of rapid innovation in dental technology presents many opportunities for clinicians to expand their knowledge and practice offerings and to explore more effective and efficient solutions for elevating the standard of care within our profession,” said Dr. Neil Park, scientific chair of the symposium and vice president of clinical affairs at Glidewell Dental.

The symposium will cover aesthetics, digital dentistry, dental implants, tissue regeneration, sleep-related dentistry, practice management, and other topics. Jim Glidewell, CDT, president and CEO of the company, will launch the event with a presentation on the current and future state of dentistry. Implant pioneer Dr. Jack Hahn will offer the keynote.

The hands-on workshops will be led by members of the Misch International Implant Institute, the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. These sessions will be designed to provide practical clinical information that participants can immediately implement when they return to their practices. 

“Following the success of last year’s sold-out symposium, we received an abundance of feedback from attendees who expressed their desire for refining their clinical skills and adopting the latest technology to grow their practice,” said Park. “They inspired us to expand the event to two days to cover even more clinical and business topics, with nearly a dozen hands-on Saturday workshops to choose from.”

Open both days, the exhibition floor will feature new technologies including 3-D printing, intraoral scanning, in-office milling, the CAD/CAM workflow, dental implants, and regenerative and restorative materials. There also will be live demonstrations and a virtual reality tour of Glidewell Dental’s R&D campus, technology center, and laboratory. 

Attendees enrolled for both days will earn up to 12 hours of continuing education credits. Tuition is $195 for day one and $150 for day two, with early bird pricing of $125 and $95, respectively, before July 31, 2018. Friday includes a complimentary breakfast, lunch, and cocktail reception. Saturday includes breakfast.
