Residents from the UW, USC, OHSU and UBC gathered to share their research and clinical cases in Seattle.
In conjunction with the annual scientific session, the Western Society of Periodontology hosted a Resident Symposium in Seattle on Friday, March 31st, 2017. Residents from a number of west coast dental schools, including UW, USC, OHSU and UBC gathered for an afternoon of presentations highlighting their research projects and clinical cases.
Drs. Mikhail Garibov and Alex Ko gave overviews of their respective research projects, and Drs. Ruby Lwo and Alaa Yassin each presented a compelling clinical case. Following the symposium, WSP held a reception for the presenters and attendees and all the residents enjoyed the chance to mingle with their colleagues from neighboring programs.
Last Friday, several of our UW Periodontics faculty participated in the Western Society of Periodontology Seattle Team Session. Dr. Bob London was a key organizer for the event, and Dr. Doug Dixon and Ms. Diane Daubert were two of the three speakers – lecturing to a congenial group of Seattle-area Periodontists, general dentists and their staff.
Dr. Dixon kicked off the afternoon with his talk on “Clinical and Scientific Perspectives for Craniofacial Bone Regeneration”, and Diane Daubert (one of our dental hygienists and a Clinical Instructor in the department) followed, addressing the group on “Guidelines for Maintenance of Patients with Implant-Supported Restorations: An Evidence-based Approach to Disease Prevention”.
The afternoon of continuing education was followed by a cocktail reception, where many of our faculty and alumni had a chance to catch up with each other.
