If you are interested in making a presentation at AAPD 2019 in Chicago, Ill., please visit the AAPD website at for a Learning Labs, International Oral Presentation, MiniClinic or String of Pearls submission form. For additional questions, contact Meeting Services Manager Caroline Oliva at

You must be an AAPD member in good standing and must be registered for the meeting in order to present at the Annual Session (only excep- tion–if presenting an International Oral Presentation). The AAPD will strictly adhere to these deadlines. All submissions and abstracts must be com- plete in order to be considered for a session at the Annual Session, GSRA or a Poster. Again this year, poster presenters can choose whether they want to compete in the poster competition versus only present (non-competitive).


Research Poster Competition
All presenters must be registered for the Annual Session. If you are a pediatric dentist, you must be a member of the AAPD to present in this research competition. The research competition will take place on Friday, May 24, and Saturday, May 25, 2019, at AAPD 2019 in Chicago. Applications are due Jan. 15, 2019.

Graduate Student Research Awards (GSRA)
Up to eight finalists are selected to present their research at AAPD 2019 in May. Finalists receive travel to AAPD 2019, complimentary registration for themselves and a guest, and a cash award and plaque at the Annual Session. A matching cash award is given to each finalist’s training program. The recipients are asked to present their research at the Annual Session. All applications and research abstracts must be submitted by Jan. 15, 2019.
