  • A global line-up of speakers representing the best and the brightest from the international periodontal community.
  • More than 300 exhibit booths in the Exhibit Hall.
  • A carefully curated slate of continuing education courses ranging from emerging trends in periodontics to more traditional clinical or basic scientific concepts.
  • The chance to network and collaborate with fellow periodontists, including seasoned thought leaders and practitioners just launching their careers.
