Welcome to Washington D.C.!
Drs. Shari Kohn and Mitali Patel
AAPD 2017 Local Arrangements Co-Chairs
Welcome to AAPD 2017 near Washington, D.C.! Washington is a dynamic city known for not only its rich history and monuments but also its growing restaurant scene and beautiful location right on the Potomac River.
This year, we will all fit under one roof at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center located right on the banks of the Potomac River, footsteps away from the Capital Waterfront. The National Harbor is home to the Capital Wheel, which takes you 180 feet high with breathtaking views of the Capitol, White House and the National Mall. Take a boat ride down the Potomac River, getting a close-up view of the monuments including the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Jefferson Memorial. Shuttles will be available to visit the National Mall and experience the history of our wonderful city.
On behalf of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the Local Arrangements Committee, we are honored to be your hosts for an exciting and educational 70th Annual Session. The Scientific Program Committee has worked diligently to develop a program that incorporates local talent from some of the leading medical and dental practitioners and researchers in the country. As always, there will be a strong educational balance encompassing pulp therapy, caries management, orthodontics to practice management, staff enrichment and outliers we see but don’t often discuss, such as; abuse, neglect, street drugs and overdose. We guarantee that there is something for everyone.
We wanted to thank Dr. John Rutkauskas, and the AAPD staff of Tonya Almond, Kristi Casale, Jessica Parra and Colleen Bingle for help- ing design great events throughout the city. If you have not been to Washington, D.C., or if you are returning, you and your family are guar- anteed an excellent experience! Mark your calendars now and join us at the AAPD Annual Session in Washington, D.C., May 25 – 28, 2017.
