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.
