Dental Pearls from Fellows and Masters (open only to AGD Fellows and Masters): These are 10–15-minute case study presentations, followed by three to five minutes of Q&A after each presentation. Ideally, presentations will be case studies or case reports that have been well-documented and have relevant educational benefit to listeners. Topics from all disciplines of dentistry will be accepted. There will be a maximum of nine presentations included in each three-hour session, and a moderator will introduce all speakers, facilitate the Q&A portion and keep all segments to their assigned time.


Emerging Speakers (open to all): Emerging Speakers do not have to be AGD Fellows or Masters. These 50-minute lectures are presented in a symposium-style format. Presentations can be on clinical topics in any discipline or other unique and interesting topics relevant to the practice of dentistry. Each presentation must be 50 minutes in length (including time for Q&A) and should focus on current issues with immediate relevance and importance to the field of dentistry, including current best practices, emerging technologies and techniques, successful cases, or addressing/avoiding failures. If you have previously presented during any Annual Scientific Meeting as an Emerging Speaker you will not be eligible for AGD2020.
