AAOM 2020 Theme and Academy History

About the Theme: "Oral Medicine: The Past, The Present, and The Future"

The theme of our 2020 annual meeting, Oral Medicine: The Past, The Present, and The Future, calls upon us as oral healthcare providers to situate our annual convening at the deliberate growth of the field of oral medicine. Informed and inspired by our past, and by the strong foundation built by the founders of this field, we will come together to explore the present evolution and the future capabilities of Oral Medicine to expand the platform for evidence-based clinical practice and state-of art scientific research.

The theme invites all of us to gather together to celebrate our illustrious past, reflect upon our ongoing efforts to fulfill our mission to integrate medicine and dentistry, and to hone our message as we continue to move forward as a leader in oral healthcare.
