As the premier global multi-disciplinary nexus for implant dentistry, AO’s 2019 Annual Meeting will be held Mar. 13 – 16, 2019 in Washington, D.C. Abstracts are being accepted for Clinical Innovations, Oral Research (Scientific and Clinical), and E-posters (Scientific, Clinical and Case Studies) via: https://osseo.org/2019-research-abstract-submissions/.
As part of the call for abstracts, the Osseointegration Foundation (OF) will be awarding twenty-five, $1,000 Student Travel Grants via its Student Travel Grant Program. These grants will be awarded to recipients of the top scoring oral research and e-poster abstracts submitted for the 2019 AO Annual Meeting. This award is open to both AO student members and student non-members who submit an abstract for the 2019 meeting and are currently enrolled in a dental school program.
