Dear MAPD Members,
This is a big year for our organization. As our own Boston will be hosting the AAPD Annual meeting in May. We hope to see you all at the Yankee Dental Conference for the Pediatric Specialtly Symposium. The topics will be Practical Update on Prevention with Dr. Michael Ignelzi and Pediatric Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery with Dr. Bonnie Padwa. The lecture will take place on Saturday, February 1, 2014 in room 160 C of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
Membership and attendance has increased in recent years. Being a part of the MAPD provides our members with continuing education and helps participants remain current. Please take advantage of our lectures and encourage colleagues to do so as well. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
