Permanent link  Seek out Live TV at the Midwinter Meeting


What’s that old adage about talking the talk and walking the walk? At the Midwinter Meeting, our experts do BOTH in the Live CE theater. 

Located in the southeast corner of the Exhibit Hall, Midwinter Meeting attendees will have a bird’s eye view when three leading clinicians perform the techniques they’re teaching – as they’re teaching them. The Live CE theater uses cameras and plasma screens to broadcast the instructor’s technique to the audience as it is being practiced on site, in real time. 

“There’s always a benefit to seeing how it’s done by an expert,” said Al Kleszynski, CDS’s Director of Scientific Programs. The use of current technology for this live-patient demonstration means that every seat in the house is a good one.

With Frank Milnar discussing restoratives, Ahmad Eslami and James Stein on implants, and Chicago’s own Fred Margolis on lasers, there is something for everyone in the Live TV Theater. Swing by on your way through the Exhibit Hall at the Midwinter Meeting, and see what strikes you. 

Tickets are not required for admission, but attendees will have their badges scanned upon arrival and exit so that their presence is recorded and partial or full CE credit can be awarded. 

And while you’re in the Exhibit Hall, spend some time browsing the booths. CDS is proud to offer 1 CE credit hour per day when you visit the Exhibit Hall. Look for signs with CE Codes near the Overlook Café no less than three hours after the Exhibit Hall opens.
