General Sessions: We can Help you Reach your Potential—even Beyond Dentistry. Drs. David Garber and Maurice Salama, Opening Power Session To kick off AACD 2013, Drs. David Garber and Maurice Salama will share the stage on Wednesday afternoon for a powerful, dynamic, and memorable presentation to leave you refreshed, renewed, and ready to tackle any clinical challenge that comes your way. Their presentation will focus on a defined algorithm for the interdisciplinary team of the restorative dentist, periodontist, and orthodontist to successfully reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all restorative options. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures, and prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to, or subsequent to, implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

Brené Brown On Thursday morning, come be inspired by Dr. Brené Brown, a research professor and writer at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. A published author, she has spent the past 12 years studying vulnerability, courage, and authenticity. Brené writes, “Vulnerability is the source of our most profound feelings and experiences. It’s at the core of shame, fear, and our struggle for worthiness, but it is also the birthplace of authenticity, courage, joy, love, belonging, inspiration, and creativity.” “If we want to change the way we live, love, parent, teach, lead organizations, and build communities, we have to start with a conversation about vulnerability—this is where our story begins.” You won’t want to miss the chance for Brené to help you find your own story!

Surprise Speaker to Be Announced On Friday morning, you’ll have the opportunity to be inspired by another general session speaker yet to be announced! Stay tuned for details—we can guarantee this is a session you won’t want to miss.
