American Equilibration Society Meeting 2011 Programme Announced

Always a “must do” for anyone involved in our field, the AES Meeting is about the only thing that would get most people to Chicago in chilly February.

Scheduled to coincide with the 2 days immediately before the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Conference and Exhibition, the AES Meeting will be on the 23rd and 24th of February, 2011.

The full programme looks impressive, but I think the standout item for us this year will be the session on how various schools (Kois, Dawson, LVI and T-Scan) teach OCCLUSAL EQUILIBRATION to their postgraduate students. The first session on the morning of the 2nd day is as follows:

Occlusal Equilibration- How it’s taught

@ Kois:                      Dr. John Kois
@ Dawson:              Dr. Glenn DuPont
Neuromuscular:  Dr. Clayton Chan
T-Scan:                      Dr. Robert Kerstein

Now, if you know anything at all about this subject you’ll recognise the names of some of the biggest hitters in the field and we can expect fireworks!
This one session alone will be worth the cost of attending the programme and could be as big in dentistry as Ali v Frazier was in boxing; not the thriller in Manila, or even the rumble in the jungle, but possibly the Riot in the Marriott!!

here’s the full programme:
