Highlights of the 2014 Annual Meeting

in San Diego

Attendees fell in love with the earthy yet sophisticated Rancho Bernardo Inn, site of the 65th Annual Meeting, and the near-perfect Southern California weather, making it one of the best meetings ever. Carol and Larry Nissen used their years of meeting experience to design a program packed with outstanding CE, unique special events and exciting tours that set a standard that will be difficult to equal in the future.

Dr. Andy Herlich led off the CE with an in-depth look at capnography and anesthesia complications, using case studies and cutting-edge material to show how to stay out of trouble. Dr. Jay Malmquist followed with an expansive study of implant complications that gave attendees information they could use as soon as they returned to their practices, the most important criterion of all CE programs.

And we honored some giants of the specialty.
