CHICAGO, Oct. 3, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 46th Annual Session of the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP) will be held in San Diego from Oct. 5-8, 2016. More than 1,000 dental health professionals will be attending, along with speakers from around the world. The overarching topic of the 2016 Annual Session is "Prosthodontics: The Intersection of Art & Technology."
"Technology is revealing new ways to do things we have been doing for years, and it is significantly advancing what is possible in health, function, and beauty," said John R. Agar, DDS, MA, FACP, the Annual Session Program Chair. "Specialty training and continuing education in new technologies make new levels of patient care seem almost magical, yet this is what we embrace and strive to do as prosthodontists."
The ACP Annual Session provides learning that can transform the effectiveness of specialized dental practices based in prosthodontics. Practitioners will share how they have handled the most challenging topics in prosthodontics, and how they've improved their practices with new technologies for diagnosis and treatment.
"Dentistry has taken incredible leaps forward in the past decade. Prosthodontists are at the forefront of this innovation, applying their advanced training and commitment to life-long learning while using state-of-the-art digital dentistry tools to help patients save time, visits, and expenses," ACP President Carl F. Driscoll, DMD, FACP, added.
Prosthodontists are dentists who specialize in restoring, replacing, and renewing teeth as well as smiles. Patients go to prosthodontists to improve their oral health outcomes.
The ACP is the only prosthodontics specialty organization whose membership is based solely on education credentials. ACP members must be in or have completed an ADA-accredited advanced education program in prosthodontics.
