CDA Convention in PEI: Introduction to Laser Assisted Endodontics and Periodontics

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. Marina Polonsky graduated from the University of Toronto, Canada in 1999, with the Dean’s Gold Medal of Achievement, and is a member of Omega Kappa Upsilon Honour Dental Society and Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity. Since 1999, Dr. Polonsky maintains a private general practice in Ottawa, Canada, with focus on multi-disciplinary treatment utilizing lasers of different wavelengths. She is the owner of the Alta Vista Laser Dental Centre in Ottawa, Canada since 2006.

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
