National Meeting

From September 12, to the 15th I attended the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons annual meeting.  We had four days packed with educational symposia and classes.  The subject matter included dental implants, dental implant surgeries, cosmetic and reconstructive facial surgery, treatment of facial trauma, anesthesia care and facial rejuvenation.  I strive to stay at the forefront of my specialty and these courses give us the opportunity to not only expand our skill base, but also to hone existing skills.  I am grateful that we still have a country where we are free to exchange knowledge and ideas.
