Cheers to prosthodontics,  PCSP annual meeting 2019

A scientific meeting in the wonderous wine country of northern California. Our mutual desire to discover the truth and the exploration of the scientific method that we follow to get to it.   Blend this with rekindling old friendships and finding new ones.  All this under the warm California sun, with the accompaniment of an earthy pinot or a robust cabernet we aim to bring you 3 days with exciting speakers. Some are old friends of our organization, some are new and rising stars; all amazingly dedicated to our profession. Cheers.

Day 1:  Critical analysis of digital dentistry

A day where we want to explore the revolution called digital dentistry.  We do not only want to learn what is new; but is all this new really better?  Our speakers will explore and share their journeys with us.

Day 2 :  Interdisciplinary dentistry; solo or together?

Dentistry has many sub specialties, but also many ways those are practiced. In a truly interdisciplinary fashion as we know from the historical American model.  Or integrated into a solo practitioner, one clinician donning many caps as we see in Europe and emerging here in the US.
