Our goal is to provide AO meeting participants with new insights and better ideas, which they can take back to their practices on Monday morning.”

• Admission to the Corporate Forums and Exhibit Hall
• Thursday’s Welcome Reception
• Friday’s President Reception

The opening session is going to address the meeting theme very closely, relative to what clinicians do now versus 20 years ago. Dr. Jill Helms DDS, PhD, from Stanford University, will present “Beauty, Reconsidered.”
The meeting will also feature an innovative session on “The Business of Implant Dentistry.” Moderated by Bill Ryan, it will look at various practice delivery systems.
Dr. Ole Jensen will be moderating a session highlighting developments that have occurred since the AO Sinus Consensus Conference. This session will feature Alan Herford, Craig Misch, Paul Fugazzotto and Eric Dierks.
The closing session will focus on the “team approach” to the treatment of various clinical problems. Several international teams will be presenting.
The regional focus in 2017 will be Latin America. Latin American speakers are included throughout the 2017 program to give meeting attendees a unique insight into the practice of implant dentistry in this region. Simultaneous translation in Spanish and Portuguese will be offered for the sessions held in the main meeting rooms.
