An important part of having an organized and functional “Society” is keeping members updated on current issues and events while also providing an opportunity for fellowship. Our general membership meetings are a monthly gathering featuring a new speaker discussing popular topics in the dental community. One hour of continuing education is provided free of charge at each meeting.

Presented by Thomas Wilson Jr., DDS, MS
The number of implants suffering from peri-implant disease is increasing. There are continued questions concerning the etiology and treatment of these problems. This presentation will cover new data on these topics. The role of foreign bodies including cement and titanium found in soft tissues surrounding implants affected by these diseases will be discussed. The effect of early and late colonizing bacteria on the Implant surfaces and their role in the production of these foreign bodies will also be detailed. New therapeutic modalities will be discussed including appropriate methods for removing biofilm from infected implant surfaces and how these approaches may or may not result in new attachments to implant surfaces previously covered with biofilm.
