Message from Dr. Oariona Lowe – Chair, CSPD Annual Meeting

A time like no other…

2020 is behind us and we are moving forward into 2021 with an innovative Spring meeting, planned on-site and virtually.

The CSPD Annual Meeting committee welcomes you to Palm Desert to join us for an outstanding continuing education program and a chance to meet and visit our sponsors who will share their new developments and innovations. It is an opportunity to interact and ask them for a demo of their products.

Our CE program commences on Friday with an all-day Sedation Course which concludes on Saturday morning. All registrants will earn 7 CEUs which is required to renew your California Oral Conscious Sedation permit. Learn “Clinical Pearls of Restorative Dentistry” on Saturday morning following the sedation lecture. Listen to the WOW presentations presented by fellow pediatric dentists and financial and practice management specialists on Saturday afternoon. Topics include “Pain management and identifying behavior sensitivities, an Office De-sensitivity and Anxiety program and learn how to incorporate a ‘therapy dog’ into your office.” Tips on how to transition from being an Associate to Partner to Practice ownership as well as learning wealth and debt management will also be presented.

The opportunity to view Poster presentations via a password protected link can be downloaded and viewed at your leisure. All attendees can earn up to 13 CE units for the 2-day meeting. BLS and PALS re-certifications will be available for renewal.

Our sponsors and exhibitors will be showcased in a uniquely designed exhibitor hall which is specially created with a virtual platform and will be available starting early Friday morning. Be sure to take advantage of “Show Specials” which will be offered along with special drawings for take away prizes.

In addition to receiving an excellent educational experience, the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa is a great place to meet up with your friends and colleagues to relax and reminisce old times. Reserve a Cabana poolside and watch the beautiful desert sunset in the presence of your families and peers. In your free time, be sure to visit Palm Desert which is a vibrant city with many tourist attractions including the Joshua Tree National Park, the aerial tram, the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, and shop at the Premium Outlets! Take a “Balloon Ride”. Share the fun and excitement!

A wonderful academic session with loaded with ways to relax and have fun is in store for you. Take home Words of Wisdom. We look forward to seeing you in the Spring!
