High registration fees, lack of time, travel expenses and other costs make attending overseas conferences prohibitive to the average dentist or OHT. Fresh from the American Academy of PediatricDentistry conference in Seattle this May, Dr Tan Wee Kiat shares with you her pickings from the conference. What's hot in caries management and paediatrics? What are the advances in filling materials for children? We take a look at it all from the perspectives of American Paediatric Dentists. What are the hot research topics we are all fired up about?  Dr Tan offers her own analysis on these new developments and how it may impact the way we practise.
