One registration fee gives ac- cess to all 144 open sessions, which means no pre-selection of courses is necessary. The variety of topics covered by more than 135 speakers means the entire dental team can access the latest information on dental technology, techniques and mate- rials. Speakers in the 2014 lineup include John Kois, John Cranham, Sergio Kuttler, Greg Psaltis, Ross Nash, Derek Mahony, Rob Roda, Louis Malcmacher, Bart John- son, Jesse Miller, Rhonda Savage and Nan- cy Andrews.

Now you can earn C.E. credit while your family has a vacation that you can enjoy with them. All the programs are in the morning — leaving you the balance of your day to spend time with your family. In the past several years, many of the event’s attendees have brought their children and enjoyed the reduced resort rates and the family-friendly accommodations and fa- cilities of the Longboat Key Club and Resort. Come early or stay late — either way, the event organizers should be able to accom- modate your requests. The education, in addition to matching the caliber of the major dental meetings, according to event organizers, also delivers an opportunity for attendees to interact directly with the presenters in informal set- tings. Whether at the social events, by the pool or on the beach, all of the presenters visit with the attendees “after class” — in more of a relaxed environment. Smiles in the Sun also invites select vendors that rep- resent some of the leading-edge materials and equipment being put to use in the pro- fession. Attendees are able to learn about the values of these materials from both the experienced clinician and the manufactur- er’s representative — all in the same room. When you’re planning your spring vaca- tion with the family, the Smiles in the Sun organizers encourage you to combine that timewithaminimaleducationalobligation on Thursday, Friday and Saturday morn- ings. All credits are PACE/CERP approved. For more information you can visit www. or contact Dr. Richard Weledniger at (631) 423-5200. Plan now to join the next event in April 2014 for what the organizers describe as a “sunsational” educational experience.
