Presentations can be on any topic relating to dentistry. Each presentation must be 50 minutes in length (including time for Q&A) and should focus on current issues with immediate relevance and importance to the field of dentistry, including current best practices, emerging technologies and techniques or successful cases and addressing/avoiding failures.
