Raising Your Prosthodontic Skillset to Maximize Your Net Income

General practitioners often rely on prosthodontics to maximize their net income. This presentation will showcase a variety of prosthetic cases with multiple clinical examples of treating basic and complex patients. Fundamental principles and proper sequencing of treatment will be presented to minimize complications and increase efficiency in your practice. In addition, there will be a focus on the treatment of prosthodontic complications that may present to your practice for your expert care. There will be an emphasis on presenting practical take home concepts that can be easily implemented into your practice.

The Alpha Omega memorial lecture started over 50 years ago, in memory of our departed fraters.  It is an annual lecture that the fraternity provides to the entire dental community with no registration fee for attending Dental health professionals.

This lecture is one of two fundraising events that our local chapter holds to raise funds for our foundation.  The Alpha Omega Foundation, Manitoba Chapter, is a charitable foundation that over the years has donated tens of thousands of dollars to local charities and organizations.  The Canadian Museum of Human Rights; Siloam Mission; Christmas Cheer Board; Heart and Stroke; Diabetes; the Simkin Centre; the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, (which supports hundreds of charities), and the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba, are amongst the many recipients of our foundation’s funds.

The Alpha Omega Foundation is proud of its history and heritage, understanding that every dollar donated makes a difference for someone whose life is less fortunate than ours. Read more about donating to The Alpha Omega Foundation.

Donations over $25.00 will receive a tax donation receipt.  Thank you very much.
