Learning LabsLead an hour-long interactive presentation on a topic of interest to pediatric dentists (50-minute presentation with 10 minute Q&A).

MiniClinicsMiniClinics sessions consist of eight speakers, each with a 45-minute presentation to a larger audience, based on a clinical topic geared toward pediatric dentistry. Areas of interest include early malocclusion management, clinical techniques using new technologies, legal issues, practice management, and new developments in pediatric dentistry.

String of PearlsA 15-minute presentation per speaker, up to nine presentations per session. In this format, each presenter will bring a single idea or concept and will share it with the group.
