BOSTON, Mass., USA: It’s been two years since the annual Yankee Dental Congress was able to meet in person, and although the world has changed in many ways since then, one thing hasn’t — the desire of event organizers to put on an educational and entertaining conference showcasing the best the dental industry has to offer.

This year’s meeting, themed “Explore, Educate, Engage,” promises to be even more expansive and offer more opportunities than before. The event is being held Jan. 27 to 29 (Thursday to Saturday) at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

One new offering is the “Healthy You, Healthy Practice” track. Caring for yourself is more important than ever so that you can continue to care for others in your practice, and thus the courses in this track will help you to carve a path to thrive in the current environment.

Some of the highlights include “Pandemic Aftershocks: Managing the Personal and Professional Impacts” (8 a.m. Friday), “Transforming COVID Challenges into Learning Opportunities” (8 a.m. Saturday) and “De-Stressing the Dental Profession: Happiness at Work and Home” (1 p.m. Saturday).

Other tracks being held throughout the meeting include hygiene, new dentists and leadership, while the list of speakers includes many prominent members of the industry, such as Alan Atlas, DMD; David Clark, DDS; Karen Davis, RDH; Mic Falkel, DDS; David Galler, DMD; Carol Jahn, RDH; Joel Laudenbach, DMD; Steven LoCascio, DDS; Maureen Perry, DDS; Angie Stone, RDH; Thomas Viola, RPh; and Juan Yepes, DDS.

In addition, you can also find a variety of educational courses, many for C.E. credit, on the exhibit hall floor. Benco Dental, Crest + Oral-B, Henry Schein Dental and Wells Fargo are all hosting their own pavilions, with thought leaders and product demonstrations, while the Next Generation Forum is a series of lectures and demos for dental professionals and industry leaders looking to learn more about the most innovative and promising technology solutions in the dental arena.
