The last time the Ontario Dental Association held its Annual Spring Meeting, back in 2019, the world was a different place. So it’s fitting that this year’s meeting, ASM21, comes equipped to help attendees deal with the changes in the world and the profession while also changing the format of the meeting itself.
Whether you are just joining in to the Pacific Dental Conference or you’ve already spent hours engaging in educational sessions and touring the virtual exhibit hall, there are plenty of presentations coming that you won’t want to miss, now or in the coming weeks.
The world has changed a great deal in the past year, causing every aspect of the dental industry to change gears along with it. In keeping with this new reality, organizers of the Pacific Dental Conference have adapted to offer attendees to this year’s meeting an all-virtual experience.
