Learning Labs offer interactive courses

New Orleans—Discover more about women in dentistry and geriatric patient care at the Learning Labs at Annual Session.

The Learning Labs are new interactive courses where dentists can exchange ideas and dialogue with their peers in a small group environment. Space is limited so dentists are encouraged to sign up early.

In the related Super Sessions, sketches, audio commentary and photos of the discussions held in the Learning Labs will be shared so a broader audience can reflect and continue the dialogue.

Two topics for the Learning Labs and Super Sessions are scheduled this year:

•    Special Care Issues in Geriatric Patient Care (5188), Oct. 31 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and (5189) from 3-5 p.m. Dr. Gretchen Gibson will host a participant-led discussion on treating elderly patients and explore how to improve care for the older adult population.
