PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THIS YEAR'S BIENNIAL
Dr. Jean Comard and I are organizing what will be an interesting Scientific Program. We will begin on Thursday at 3:15pm with membership presentations. On Friday and Saturday, we will hear from many of our International speakers. Dr. Larry Tadlock, ABO Director and Program Director of Orthodontics at Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry, will inspire us with an outstanding "Merrifield Lecture". We will have a light breakfast and lunch each day. The program will conclude at 3:15pm on Friday and Saturday in order to allow you some free time.
The model room will be open Thursday morning so please set your cases out early. We encourage members to "pick up some plaster" this morning while the Board meets. After lunch, the examining committee will look at case reports for those who desire to become Fellows. You may print the Case Report Presentation information. The model display room will be located near the lecture room and will be open each day from early in the morning until late in the afternoon. All of us are to bring cases!!
On the lighter side, there will be a reception with heavy hors d'oeuvres Thursday evening. On Friday evening, we'll load the buses for an 1800's Texas Hoedown at Storybook Ranch with BBQ and Boot Scootin'! On Saturday morning, spouses/guests will enjoy a Paint Party Brunch. Saturday night will feature the President's Dinner where we'll honor some special people and then dance the night away.
