AAOMS to Honor Its 100th Anniversary at Its Annual Meeting

ROSEMONT, Ill. – The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) will celebrate its centennial anniversary during its 100th Annual Meeting, Scientific Sessions and Exhibition being held Oct. 8 to 13 in Chicago, Ill.

More than 4,000 oral and maxillofacial surgeons, faculty, residents and others are expected to gather in the city where the association was originally founded. In 1918, 29 doctors convened to hold the first meeting of the American Society of Exodontists, the organization that later became AAOMS.

The AAOMS Annual Meeting – the largest and most comprehensive educational conference in the world exclusively for oral and maxillofacial surgeons and their staff – will feature approximately 170 educational programs at the Hilton Chicago and McCormick Place West. Sessions will expound on such timely topics as the treatment of war injuries, advancements in cancer care and emerging technologies in maxillofacial nerve injuries.

A new educational program will feature nine tracks based on the OMS scope of practice: anesthesia, cosmetic and orthognathic surgery, dental implants, dentoalveolar, head and neck oncology, pediatrics and cleft, reconstruction, temporomandibular joint and trauma. For each track, speakers will address the latest evidence-based research in a plenary session and then move into focused breakouts that will allow for greater discussion. In honor of the centennial, each track also will offer a historical review of the practice area and an oral abstract session.

Registration is open to AAOMS members, OMS residents, non-members and the media. More information is available at AAOMS.org/Chicago.
