Annual Session

20th Annual Meeting & Scientific Session

Welcome to the 20th Anniversary of the Academy of Microscope Enhanced Dentistry Annual Session. The Academy is proud to present this milestone meeting at the Bellagio Hotel and Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This is Dr. Randy Shoup, President of the Academy. We are all now ready to literally and figuratively breathe a breath of fresh air as we near the end of the Covid-19 pandemic. By all predictions we will have reached herd immunity in the US by mid to late July. Our meeting is September 10-12, 2021. We will, of course, be mindful of all the safety precautions that need to be in place at that time.

AMED had a highly successful meeting in 2020 in Chicago where we introduced the “hybrid” model having both virtual and live presenters. This year we will again feature the hybrid format where this meeting may be attended either live and in person or via the web.

AMED has another exciting innovation this year in that we are partnering with the Western Society of Periodontology in sharing meeting space, sharing some speakers, exhibits and every live attendee can freely attend either an AMED presentation or a WSP presentation. We also have the Western Region Dental Hygiene Symposium sharing space with both AMED and WSP which makes this a meeting for your entire team.

AMED has selected a stellar line up of amazing presenters for this year. AMED is dedicated to education and hands on experiences so we have Dr. Bruno Azevedo presenting three (3) different hands on CBCT workshops for dentists focusing on endo, implants, sinuses, and perio, as well as two (2) workshops for the dental team on how to take the best CBCT images possible. You cannot find this level of training anywhere else.

We have Drs. Khayat and Jouanny lecturing and presenting a full day hands on experience on microsurgical end- odontics. These French endodontists have a ground breaking text book entitled Microsurgical Endodontics published by Quintessence.

Dr. Rick Miron will lecture and present a hand on workshop on Platelet Rich Fibrin in the dental practice. His focus is on periodontal reconstruction as well as the esthetic applications of PRF.

Dr. Mark Lazare, the President of the Academy of Biomimetic Dentistry will lecture as well as present a half day hands on workshop on advanced adhesive/bonded dentistry and the use of fibers in restoring the debilitated tooth.

AMED will have featured speakers from Japan, India, Panama, Brazil, and Italy.

If you are a restorative dentist, endodontist, periodontist, prosthodontist, hygienist, or chairside assistant this meeting has amazing opportunities for you to learn from the best in the world.

AMED has expanded our opportunities to those that are just thinking about using a microscope or you have a microscope that is collecting dust in the corner. Our Introduction to Microscopy course is perfect to get the doctor and hygienist comfortable on the scope or to help you make that transition from low levels of loupes to the expanded world of microscopic dentistry.

There is truly something for EVERY dentist and hygienist at the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Microscope Enhanced Dentistry.

This will be the opportunity for you to finally get out and learn, network, experience, and actually enjoy dental education with your colleagues again.

Should you have any questions or want to register to exhibit please call Todd Goldman at 813-444-1014.

I look forward to seeing you there.
