The 2006 Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting

Prepare Your Practice for the Future in Atlanta, Georgia

The 2006 Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting promises something for everyone with the goal of preparing your practice for the future. This year’s meeting will take place March 23-25 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

First held in 1911 by Dr. Thomas P. Hinman, this meeting was considered to be the first clinic strictly for serious-minded educational purposes. Dr. Hinman believed strongly in the individual’s contribution to dentistry. The meeting developed a reputation for devotion to detail and hospitality that continued to grow through the years with every meeting. These qualities are represented in the motto: Devotion to detail is the secret of success. And it is hoped that you will find this devotion in all that the 2006 meeting has to offer.


Some of the country’s leading dental experts will deliver 160 lectures and courses at Hinman. Many of your favorite speakers are returning this year and will share their knowledge and expertise on everything from fixed prosthodontics to oral pathology.

And, this year Hinman welcomes 17 speakers new to the meeting, including experts in the areas of esthetics, practice management, and motivation. Don’t miss these speakers’ fresh perspective on new procedures, products, techniques, and management strategies.

Since there are some educational topics that simply require hands-on participation, you will have more opportunities than ever before at Hinman to learn and practice dental techniques and use the latest equipment available. Participation courses are scheduled each day of the meeting, ranging from hands-on oral surgery to instrument sharpening to digital photography, and many courses are repeated to give you more opportunities to attend what you are interested in.

This year, Hinman’s exhibit hall not only offers over 900 technical exhibits but additional CE courses on the exhibit floor as well, allowing you to spend more time in the exhibit hall while still completing your CE requirements. Opportunities include workshops for hygienists, assistants, office staff, and dentists.

The popular ADAA Assistants’ Seminars return this year and will be offered all 3 days of the meeting. Learn about new products and techniques to hone your skills and expand your capabilities. For non-ADAA members, the course fee includes a 6-month ADAA membership compliments of Hinman, and current ADAA members will receive a special gift from Hinman.

Because every successful dentist has multiple auxiliary staff members who contribute significantly to his or her success, Hinman’s auxiliary program continues to expand and offer the best of the best to ensure your personal and professional success. Don’t miss workshops for provisional restorations and instrumentation as well as lectures on practice management and insurance updates.


With everything Atlanta has to offer, Hinman wants to help spouses and anyone not attending courses and exhibits to make the most of their time there. This year’s meeting offers a new outing to the unique Bennett Street shopping district; a fabulous new Hinman Luncheon at the beautiful Commerce Club with a Talbots fashion show; a lovely homes tour and luncheon; or catch an Atlanta Thrashers professional hockey game, take a tour of CNN Studios, or attend a wine tasting seminar.

Come to the meeting early or stay an extra day to experience the new Georgia Aquarium—the largest aquarium in the world. Located conveniently across from the Georgia World Congress Center, the aquarium hosts more than 100,000 animals from 500 species, including Beluga whales and whale sharks.
