Meeting Overview

The Department of Dental Anesthesiology is pleased to announce the first of the Dental Anesthesiology Legacy Lecture Series on October 6 and 7, 2017 in beautiful downtown Pittsburgh.

This continuing series will be an excellent opportunity for those interested in dental anesthesiology to receive timely, pertinent and high-level continuing education with clinical application. We have an impressive lineup of speakers for the meeting.

The Keynote Speaker is one of the most well known names in dental anesthesiology, Dr. Morton B. Rosenberg, Emeritus Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Division of Anesthesia and Pain Control, and Emeritus Professor of Anesthesiology at Tufts University Schools of Medicine and Dental Medicine. Dr. Rosenberg has had a long and distinguished career and his talk will recount the history of dental anesthesiology, its progression to present day, and his vision of the future.

Plan to attend the opening reception on Friday, October 6th followed by the complete program on Saturday, the 7th. The meeting will be held at the Duquesne Club, one of the world’s premier city clubs.

Please mark your calendars for what we hope will become the “must attend” dental anesthesiology meeting of the year.
