On Friday, November 15th, 2019, in conjunction with the Illinois State Dental Society at Ditka’s restaurant in Oak Brook Terrace, the Chicago component of the Academy of General Dentistry hosted a seminar that was given by Dr. Sam Halabo. Attendees received start to finish information on most of the materials and techniques that can be used in all areas and clinical situations in operative dentistry. Step-by- step methods were shown so that the most efficient, aesthetic and comfortable results can be accomplished for our patients. Over 300 slides were made available prior to the lecture, so we left with a comprehensive reference for appropriate material selection using the best and most current information. Dr. Halabo was also very open to questions from the audience which made for an enjoyable and informative day.
The Chicago AGD is thankful for our sponsors who generously supported our lecture. PNC Bank (attending rep: Amit Gupta, B.E.), weave (attending rep: Mike Buckner), BISCO, Care Credit, Maine Dental Laboratory, Inc.

The interaction between the attending dentists and our sponsors was very active throughout the day! With so little time available in our schedules, it was great to be able to see what products and services we can bring back to our practices on Monday morning.
