Message from the Annual Session Chair

As Chair of the CSPD Annual Meeting Committee, I want to personally invite you to the 2018 CSPD/WSPD Annual Session in La Jolla, California at the Hilton Torrey Pines Hotel, October 11-14. Dynamic and exhilarating academic sessions and great social events await you at Torrey Pines by the Sea.

A preview to our academic session opens on Thursday afternoon with Dr. Anna Chen’s inspiring presentation on “New Trends in Dental Caries Management and Restoration Including Non-invasive Treatment” followed by, Silver Diamine Fluoride, the Science and Clinical Evidence, with a Hands-on Workshop.”

Have an early discussion, talk and mingle with our sponsors and exhibitors to hear about their special pricing for our meeting attendees.

After breakfast, head over to the lecture hall to learn about these excellent programs:
