Please fill out the meeting registration form here.  Send form and payment by mail. You will be notified when we receive your registration form. The meeting qualifies for 6 continuing education credits.
Submission of cases for Sunday:

Each contributor is expected to present a case that would be of use in teaching dental hygiene students, dental students, residents (dental or medical), or other health care students and professionals.  Clinical photos and radiographs are highly recommended, if possible. It might be fun this year to collect cases that masquerade as other things, such as "periapical" lesions that are not endodontic in origin.

We prefer that the cases be presented digitally, in PowerPoint format. We will have a projector and laptop computer with CD-ROM drive. if you must bring Kodachromes, let us know so that we can have a slide projector available. Please e-mail your cases to me (Kurt Summersgill, kfs8@pitt.edu), preferably by August 15. If everyone sends his/her case(s) in a timely manner, we might be able to hand you a CD of all the cases at the end of the meeting. Otherwise, we will send a CD of the presentations. Do not hesitate to call (412-648-8635) or e-mail me (kfs8@pitt.edu) if you have any questions about the meeting.
