FACE AHEAD 2022
Two action-packed days of knowledge exchange and networking—and having a great time—are at the core of the FACE AHEAD experience.
Tissue replacement and 3-D planning on day one, complications and personalized medicine on day two. Participants had the opportunity to meet up with peers, mingle with some of the biggest names in the craniomaxillofacial (CMF) field, and strengthen their professional network. The best part? Eighty percent of the 40 sessions were interactive. That means that the participants themselves had a key role in shaping this unique event.
