Celebrating 40 Years

You’re invited! Please join us for the 40th Annual Conference of the Academy of LDS Dentists on August 18th and 19th. Attendees in the past have commented that this conference is unique and second to none. In addition to the excellent clinical lectures, your family will enjoy informative spouse presentations and awesome youth activities. The Friday dinner/fireside will be an evening of great food and inspiring entertainment. During the business meeting and service luncheon, an overview of current Academy projects and activities will also be presented. I hope you will register and help us celebrate 40 years of fellowship, education, and service!
