James Wiese and Bob Ryan attended the American Academy of Implant Dentistry’s annual conference in Las Vegas for some continuing education and fun. Exciting new technology was rolled out at the meeting, including real-time guided surgical instrumentation. Frequent Midwinter Meeting speaker Carl Misch was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his numerous contributions to implant dentistry. Bob and his wife Nancy followed up the meeting with a short trip to Zion National Park to wind down on some hiking trails.
