ATLANTA, Ga., USA: The Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting has announced several new educational programs and tracks for dentists and dental professionals of all ages and levels of experience. Hinman 2022, which will be held March 17-19, is now open for registration at www.hinman.org.

Among 245 educational lectures and workshops presented by more than 60 experts in the dental profession, the 2022 meeting will offer a special “Women Dentist Program,” as well as new educational tracks for new dentists, hygienists, assistants and dental business office staff.

“Hinman 2022 is filled with new educational programs and courses designed to help us all reconnect, continue to learn the latest in dentistry and find renewed inspiration as dental professionals,” said Dr. Kate Robinson, general chair for Hinman 2022. “Our theme this year reflects the moment we find ourselves in – ‘Navigating Dental Disruptions.’ We’ve all lived and worked through a global pandemic, which has presented enormous challenges, but we also find opportunities from this adversity and the chance to gather once again to share best practices and learn from one another.”

Held on Saturday, March 19, from noon to 1:30 p.m., “Thrive! Staying Vital as Mom, Dentist, Partner and…YOU!” (Course Sa366) is a special networking and panel discussion moderated by Carol Paige and Christy Ratcliff.
