Yankee Dental Congress Intros New Features

The Boston-based —held Jan. 29 to Feb. 2 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center—is creating some new programs and features to draw attendees in one of the most competitive sectors of the health care show field.

On Congress day one, Wednesday Jan. 29, dentists and dental teams will have the chance to learn about the anatomy, physiology, diagnosis and treatment for Botox and Dermal fillers. The American Academy of Facial Esthetics will present this new hands-on course with live patients.

On Thursday, the Yankee Dental Congress will present a full-day symposium entitled “Master the Skills of Marketing Your Practice,” a program designed for dental professionals who want to learn how to market their practices using both conventional and newer web-based strategies.

In addition, a “Dental Team Playbook” session will be presented for dental assistants, dental hygienists and office personnel. A spin-off of last year’s “Team Development Day,” each team member will join his or her respective “team” for a session with experts in the field of dental practice administration, followed by a luncheon.

Then, as was the case last year, hands-on cadaver programs will be featured every day of the Congress, providing demonstrations on the use of local anesthesia, crown-lengthening and mucogingival surgery and anatomy.

The ninth annual Yankee Conference on Women in Dentistry will begin Jan. 30 with a theme of “Surviving and Thriving: Treating Ourselves as Well as We Treat Our Patients.”

The Yankee Dental Congress typically draws about 23,000 attendees with a showfloor of around 90,000 net square feet and more than 460 exhibiting companies.
