The format of this session is an open dialogue where denturists and their staff can seek solutions and insights directly from The DAC. Attendees are urged to bring specific examples from their professional experiences, allowing for a collaborative exploration of real-world scenarios. The session aims to address the challenges denturists encounter in their daily practices and provide practical guidance.

To enhance the interactive nature of the session, denturists are also encouraged to submit their questions in advance to Mallory Potter at dacdenturist@bellnet.ca.
