Tethered Oral Tissues Symposium: Breastfeeding and Beyond
Nov. 13-14, 2020
Assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of tethered tissues is an area of interest across dental and medical disciplines. Yet, there is no consensus on terminology or management. This conference will host national and international renowned providers in the areas of dentistry, orthodontics, otolaryngology, sleep medicine, lactation, and speech pathology to present current research and clinical per- spectives. These experts represent diverse background and ample time will be provided for a robust discussion of how best to provide care for families.
Our members health and safety is top of mind, which is why the AAPD has made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person Fall Tethered Tissues Symposium. We are excited to bring you the same course, the same amount of CE hours and the same world-class speakers just in a virtual format! The course will still take place the same weekend, Nov. 13-14. We are offering exclusive registration rates for this online format! Head to to register and find out more!

For the first time, AAPD is offering members a Virtual Mini Series for both the Comprehensive Review and Safe & Effective Sedation Courses! We have been working hard with our course speakers to pivot what was our in-person CE content to an all virtual format. The Mini Series provide a more intimate environment and each session focuses on one specific topic. Space is limited for each session to allow our speakers and members to connect and ask questions. The Mini Series officially kicks off on Sept. 16, with Comprehensive Review and will go every Wednesday through Nov. 18, Sedation will alternate with Comp Review every week.
We are so excited to provide our members with CE that is easily accessible and can fit in with any schedule! To find out more and register visit
