Yankee Dental Congress 2017 will be Jan. 25 to 29 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Organizers describe the congress as New England’s largest dental meeting. It is sponsored by the Massachusetts Dental Society, in cooperation with the dental societies of Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Nearly 28,000 dental professionals and guests from across the U.S. are expected.

The theme is “Focus. Fast. Forward.” It is meant to “emulates how dental professionals can focus on innovative continuing education opportunities for intellectual development in the dental field, to fast-forward the industry for the future.”

Among the 300 courses are programs tying into Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker’s effort to combat addiction in the commonwealth. This includes the Third Annual Interprofessional Symposium: “CTL-ALT-DELETE: Rebooting the Approach to Pain Management,” and a “Fast Track” program on pain management and prescription monitoring.

The Sleep Apnea Pavilion will showcase new technologies from laboratory providers and educate attendees on oral appliance therapy and laser procedures — as well as pediatric dental sleep medicine.

The 3-D Printing Pavilion will demonstrate high-resolution desktop 3-D printing and how it provides affordable access to advanced digital workflows for labs and dental practices.

The exhibit hall will host more than 450 exhibitors along with several education pavilions.

Special presentations this year include “A Conversation with Dr. Lisa Genova,” author of the best-selling novel “Still Alice,” basis for the identically titled Academy Award-winning film. Another special presentation features Nancy Frates, mother of Pete Frates, who was the inspiration for the ALS ice-bucket challenge.
