ABAOMS Annual Scientific Meeting 2021 

The annual scientific meeting of ABAOMS in 2021 (Friday 21st – Saturday 22nd May) promises to be an exciting opportunity to present your research, service evaluations, interesting cases or audits and hear about the latest advances in a number of areas relevant to the practice of oral surgery whilst receiving verifiable CPD. The conference theme is updating after the upheaval and challenges the pandemic has brought to all of our lives in all sorts of different ways. The conference will offer up to 12 hours of CPD to those attending all sessions and completing the evaluation/reflection. CPD will meet the criteria set down by the UK regulator for CPD, but no assurances can be made for other regulatory bodies elsewhere in the world. The final details of lecture titles etc are in the process of being confirmed but the invited speakers will be covering the following:

  • Educating during a pandemic: lessons learnt. Expert panel and discussion
  • Interdigitating with orthodontics: oral surgery and orthodontics
  • Implant surgery: sinus lift and bone grafting; nerve injury and implant surgery; implant prosthodontics for surgeons.
  • Core CPD: sedation in special cases; medical emergencies; radiology
  • What recent advances surgeons need to know in oral pathology, oral medicine, and orofacial pain

All this CPD could potentially be garnered from the comfort of your own armchair! This is because the whole conference will be virtual and available in real-time. The conference is free for members and it’s never too late to join ABAOMS at £50/year membership. To present at the conference you must be a member as there are prizes for the best oral presentation and the Robinson poster prize with cash awards. The winner of this year’s DCT essay competition will also have the opportunity to present their work at this meeting.

The final date for registration (for members and non-members) is 19th April 2021. Registration after this date will NOT be accepted. 

Please note that abstract submission has now closed. 

We reserve the right in the current pandemic to adjust the programme due to unforeseen circumstances.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
