Congress Invite 2

5 March 2014

Dear Colleagues

SASP worked very hard to identify speakers to come to South Africa to lecture at the upcoming SADA Congress at the Emperors’ Palace from Friday 14-16 March 2014.

We have world-class speakers confirmed for these sessions that run every day from the Friday to the Sunday.

Professor Markus Hurzeler will share his experience with regard to Implantology and Periodontal plastic surgery. He lectures on the Friday afternoon and all day on the Saturday. Professor Torsten Jempt will share his experience with implants over a long period of time on Sunday morning. Dr Mark Hockman will give some insight on how Orthodontics and Periodontics can be combined. Professor Feller from the University of Limpopo will share his department’s knowledge on some Oral Pigmented lesions on Sunday too.

The SASP AGM is scheduled for 11:15 on Sunday 16 March 2014 and we urge our members to attend this meeting where important decisions will have to be made, relevant to SASP. We would be very grateful for the attendance of Private Periodontists our Academics in the different Universities as well as Registrars busy with training.

We would also like to invite all other Specialist groups to attend lectures given by the above mentioned Specialists. All other health care providers are obviously welcome too.

Please have a look at the new updated Congress Programme. and make an effort to attend the congress.

We hope to see you all there.

Dr Johann Lochner
President of The South African Society for Periodontology
