Winter Clinic – Toronto Academy of Dentistry
The Winter Clinic is the largest one-day dental convention in North America, where dental professionals come to learn from world class speakers and explore and save on products and services.
This year’s clinical program covers a broad spectrum of topics and includes: an examination of the way digital technology is transforming the workflow in the dental office; demonstrations of cutting edge tools and equipment; specialized techniques for prosthetic tooth repositioning; the use of lasers in periodontal therapy; a discussion of current views on the use of X-Rays as a diagnostic tool; advice on the latest legal requirements for health and safety in the dental office; how to meet the demands of your modern dental practice through healthy habits and humour. And so much more.
Bring the whole team and share the knowledge.

The winter months bring along with them shortened days and shortened sunlight hours. Seasonal Affective Disorder is a condition that afflicts many members of our community as a result of decreased exposure to sunlight. Smiles make people feel better. Smiles are infectious. Smiles are a means by which we can express happiness and share joy with others. We know that smiles are a flush for oral facial stress as it takes 43 muscles to frown and only 17 to smile. Many others within our communities are not able to smile as a result of poor oral health and missing or decayed teeth.
In order to help people who suffer from depressive conditions like Seasonal Affective Disorder and Tooth Disease, we have partnered with various groups and agencies throughout the city to promote Give-A-Smile Day at the beginning of Winter. It is our hope that we can help make people happy via the social exchange that takes place by giving away a smile. We are also raising funds for local charities that provides assistance to the marginalized, by rehabilitating their smiles so that they can regain their self-confidence and move forward in life.
We are hoping to enlist your support in our venture, by asking members of the profession to wear and distribute Give-A-Smile Day stickers on Friday November 6th, and also if possible, recruit members to assist us at Union Station on the morning of November 6, 2015, 7-8am; to hand out stickers to members of the public. This is also the morning of Winter Clinic, and this will be a nice gesture on the part of our profession to do something prior to the meeting. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact me directly anytime at 613.449.6310.
