AAPD meeting sets attendance record

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) annual session in Honolulu from May 21-24, 2009, broke the all-time attendance record for the organization's annual meeting, the academy announced.

The session was expected to draw an international attendance of 2,500 participants, but instead recorded final attendance numbers at 4,838. AAPD officials credit the location for the upturn.

"This year's AAPD session is one of our largest ever, most likely a result of Hawaii being the host state," said Beverly Largent, D.M.D., immediate past president of the AAPD, in a press release. "Many of the attendees brought in their families and dental staff with them, taking advantage of what Hawaii has to offer."

This year's ADA meeting is also slated to be held in Hawaii.
