A4 Dental Tribune Canada Edition | March 2016 EVENTS Ad Dental professionals from across the globe will be able to see the latest in den- tal products and services at the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s annual scientific session, AACD 2016, which will be held in Toronto from April 28–30. AACD 2016 is considered by many to be cosmetic dentistry’s premier educa- tion event, with its hands-on workshops, lectures and social events catering specif- ically to professionals involved with cos- metic dentistry. The AACD exhibit hall will be open all three days, featuring breakfasts, lunches and several cocktail receptions. More than 1,500 dental professionals are expected to attend the event, which will take place at the Metro Toronto Con- vention Center in downtown Toronto. While the exhibit hall is open to attendees of AACD 2016, those who aren’t attending the meeting can still purchase products and services with daily passes. Jeff Roach, director of strategic partner- ships at AACD, said, “Our attendees look forward to the amazing products and services our exhibitors offer, and with several cocktail receptions and other ac- tivities planned, we anticipate plenty of foot traffic.” A new meeting structure is in place to deliver this year’s educational offerings. The conference will feature separate themes on each of the three days: design, implementation and realization.
