The result is not just the biggest dental con- gress and exhibition in the United States but one of the biggest gatherings across all sectors of health care: the Greater New York Dental Meeting (GNYDM). New this year is a ColLABoration high- tech lab area on the exhibit floor that puts technicians and dentists side-by-side for a hands-on experience. Also new are three tech pavilions focusing on CAD/CAM, cone-beam and lasers. This 89th edition of the GNYDM, Nov. 29–Dec. 4, is expected to attract about 1,500 exhibitor booths, and organiz- ers are ready to surpass last year’s at- tendance of 53,481. International atten- dance, too, is expected to tick up beyond last year’s 6,600 from 127 countries. To better serve these international at- tendees, there are programs in Italian, French, Portuguese, Russian and Span- ish. But the real appeal for all GNYDM attendees, of course, is the meeting’s broad range of seminars and workshops. Educational offerings feature renowned clinicians from across the world deliver- ing presentations on the latest advances in dentistry and health care. The scope of the meeting is immediate- ly apparent simply by glancing through a partial listing of the major subject areas: anesthesia, coding, cosmetic dentistry, medical emergencies, craniofacial pain, dental hygiene, endodontics, esthetics, implant dentistry, lasers, local anesthe- sia, occlusion, oral medicine, oral pa- thology, oral surgery, orthodontics, pain management, pediatric dentistry, peri- odontics, practice management, prosth- odontics, radiology, restorative dentistry, sleep apnea, social media, special needs dentistry and more.
