CDA Convention in PEI: Diagnosis and Management of Orafacial Pain


It promises to be the event of the summer! The Dental Association of PEI is holding its joint convention with the Canadian Dental Association in Charlottetown August 22nd to 25th, 2018. A great scientific as well as social  program awaits PEI guests along with a sizeable number of exhibitors who are showing their latest and brightest products and technologies. 

Dr. Howard Tenenbaum received his DDS from the University of Toronto in 1978 and then went on to complete his specialty in Periodontics as well as a PhD. in bone cell biology by 1982. He is currently Professor and Head of Periodontology at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto and is also the Head of Periodontics at Mount Sinai Hospital. In addition, he is a Professor in the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathophysiology in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto. He is also an FDA panel member for Dental Devices and Drugs. Dr. Tenenbaum has had continuous funding from the Medical Research Council of Canada for the past 17 years and has pursued ongoing research in the fields of bone cell biology (including recent experiments on the US Space Shuttle carried out by Senator John Glenn), Periodontics, and orofacial pain. He has published over 120 articles and abstracts in major scientific and clinical journals.

I hope you get a chance to attend the convention this summer and enjoy a memorable time in Charlottetown with your family, friends, and colleagues. Don’t forget to share your thoughts and memories with us 🙂 at oasisdiscussions@cda-adc.ca or call our toll free number 1-855-716-2747.
