As the Ontario Dental Association‘s Annual Spring Meeting approaches, we at CDA Oasis are pleased to bring you highlights of some of the speakers and the sessions that will be offered this year. It is my hope that you learn from the various conversations; and if you happen to be in Toronto, you find it interesting enough to attend the event. 

Dr. Jim Grisdale received his undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate degrees in prosthodontics from McGill University. He received another postgraduate degree in periodontics at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Grisdale was a full-time faculty member at Loma Linda School of Dentistry in the Department of Periodontics and is currently a sessional lecturer.

ASM2018 is the single largest venue where the dental team members can earn continuing education credits all under one roof. The meeting offers a broad and diverse range of renowned speakers and topics for dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and office staff. There will be lectures, workshops and various exhibitors, showcasing the latest products and services from more than 300 companies.

I hope you benefit from the information presented in this conversation. Be sure to share your thoughts, suggestions, and questions with us at oasisdiscussions@cda-adc.ca

Until next Time!
