CHICAGO, USA: A new location, a lot of new products and a couple new events made this year’s 145th Midwinter Meeting memorable. Over three days in late February, more than 30,000 dentists and dental professionals got a look at the latest innovations in dentistry. The meeting, organised by the Chicago Dental Society (CDS), featured nearly 600 exhibiting companies from around the world. ‘Go West CDS’ was the theme of the meeting, held at McCormick Place for the 18th year in a row — but this time in the new West Building.
Visitors to the Midwinter Meeting not only had the first peek at an array of new dental products, but they also had the opportunity to attend more than 200 scientific programmes, including approximately 30 hands-on programmes covering topics such as forensic odontology, cosmetic dentistry, infection control during dental care and the effect of clinical hypnosis on nervous patients.

Dr George Zehak, general chair; Dr Cheryl Watson-Lowry, program chair; and Dr Al Kleszynski, CDS director of scientific programs, assembled the scientific program, featuring 142 speakers, 175 courses and 40 participation courses.

For the first time, attendees had the opportunity to receive a health screening featuring 10 tests. The Midwinter Meeting Wellness Center Health Screening, presented by BlueAPPLe Health.
