AO Hands-on Workshop

On Wednesday, March 13, 2019, the Academy of Osseointegration (AO) will be partnering with leading international corporations in implant dentistry to offer five hands-on workshops, as well as two Pre-conference Sessions as an opportunity for members to earn CE credit toward the AO Certificate in Implant Dentistry.

All of these sessions will be offered as part of AO’s 34th Annual Meeting, to be held March 13 – 16, 2019 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in downtown Washington, DC.

Hands-on Workshops, fitting the multi-disciplinary nature of its Annual Meeting and the background of its attendees and membership, will offer registrants the opportunity to fine-tune their skills using the newest materials and technology available today. NEW FOR 2019: these popular limited-attendance and often sold-out workshops will be full-day sessions (9:00 am – 4:00 pm).

Since 2016, AO members have been achieving the AO Certificate in Implant Dentistry as a key way to demonstrate their education and experience that verifies core knowledge and clinical skills in the field of implant dentistry and gives patients confidence in the level of qualifications of their dental practitioner. These pre-conference sessions are a great way to earn CE credits toward the Certificate.

Please note: Admission in the pre-conference sessions is by ticket only and pre-registration is required.
