I would like to thank the organizers of the Conference for inviting me to present an Introduction to Hypnosis and on Hypnosis, Dental Fear, Anxiety and Phobia. It was a privilege to be amongst the profession’s best and brightest clinicians.
The final attendance numbers are not yet available, but the estimate is up to 27,500 folks attended the New England States’ dental societies annual conference. Participants had the opportunity to take part in more than 300 continuing education courses and peruse more than 450 exhibitors’ booths in the exhibit hall.
This year’s theme was “Focus, Fast, Forward” which describes the profession as it moves ever forward in delivering state of the art lifelong health care to our patients through technological advances and continuing education.
Attendees came from all over the continent to enrich their skills and knowledge. The Bostonian venue is quite impressive and remarkable. Doubtless, like myself they were entranced. Boston is well worth a visit if you have never been before. To pique your interest, the tall ship is part of the Boston Tea Party museum.
