In this fast-moving world, new technologies, techniques and knowledge are always on the horizon, and dentists are challenged to stay in a leadership position.  It is imperative to the profession that this challenge be met with the highest quality continuing education opportunities possible.  To this end, we offer our annual program of learning to the profession.  We provide excellence in quality scientifically based learning in restorative dentistry.
