AGD2024 Take the Floor Presentations

Take the Floor Presentations

Thank you for your interest in becoming a speaker. Abstract Submissions have now closed for AGD2024. Authors of selected and approved submission topics will be notified via email.

Submissions are open to all AGD members and non-members with preference given to members and FAGD and MAGD Awardees.

Formerly recognized as Dental Pearls, Emerging Speakers, Recommencing Speakers, and Wellness Series presentations, our reimagined Take the Floor series will cover timely and relevant topics within the field of dentistry. These symposium-style presentations, each with 35 minutes of lecture and 10 minutes of Q&A, will allow subject matter experts to highlight themes across clinical disciplines, mental health, and physical well-being. Participants will gain critical insights into today's most pressing challenges and walk away with an invaluable educational experience.

Take the Floor presentation submissions must include a course description, a minimum of three learning objectives, and be free of any product or promotional content. Selected speakers will receive complimentary registration to AGD2024. Take the Floor speakers do not receive speaker honorarium nor reimbursement for any travel/hotel expenses. 

Submission of an abstract proposal does not guarantee acceptance to the AGD2024 program. All abstract proposals are reviewed by the Scientific Meeting Council (SMC) based on clarity of the description, learning objectives, creativity of proposed topic/case, and its significance to general dentistry. Proposals that are incomplete or submitted after the deadline will not be accepted. Abstracts must be submitted by 11:59 PM CDT on Thursday, February 1, 2024.

Selected speakers will be required to submit any updates to their final presentation (PowerPoint or compatible format) including any clinical photos or video clips to AGD no later than June 10, 2024.
