Continuing education with comfortable seating This year the Toronto Academy of Dentistry is taking you to the cinema for its annual Winter Clinic, the academy’s 79th annual meeting. This year’s meeting is being billed as an “unequaled audio/video experience in com- fortable theatre seating within spacious auditoriums (with) lots of popcorn.” The popular single-day meeting on Friday, Nov. 11, is at the Cineplex Cinemas, on the third floor at Empress Walk, 5095 Yonge St., in Toronto. The venue enables the meeting to take advantage of state-of-the art audio/visual capabilities and provide attendees with unique theatre seating. Opening this year’s programme is a Remembrance Day address from Dr. Victor Lanctis, retired brigadier-general of the Royal Canadian Dental Corps. This is followed by the key- note speaker, Dr. Stephen DeWitt, a noted sexologist, who also will be offering a full-day programme for attendees who want to delve deeper into the topic. DeWitt promises to turn the topic of sex “upside down and inside out” and explore why people think about sex the way they do. He promises to empower people to become more comfortable with themselves and why they are who they are. Among the meeting’s continuing education offerings, topics include: recognition and treatment of dental caries, clinical protocols, oral systemic health inter-relations; radio- graphic interpretation, sleep apnea; medicine for dentistry; unanswered questions in periodontol- ogy; endodontic-periodontal interrelationships; marketing and cultural differences in the dental office; and updates on pediatric dentistry from ex- perts at the Hospital for Sick Children. Additional speakers include: Drs. Michael Glick, John Maggio, Peter Judd, Frank Scannapieco, Ste- ven Olmos, Ryan Schure, Richard Speers, Geoffrey L. Sas, Adam Kaplan, and Kristina and Susanne Per- schbacher. Among the many highlights are two sessions from Glick: “A Skeptic’s Guide to Clinical Protocols” and “The Oral-Systemic Health Connection. Where Are We Today?” from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in The- atre 5. Glick’s first session challenges participants to crit- ically evaluate the historic rationale behind proto- cols and if their application in your clinical practice model meets standards required in today’s world of evidence-based medicine and dentistry.
