93RD ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ACADEMY
Dr. David Eggleston, Newport Beach, California.
On behalf of the Officers and Executive Council, a warm welcome to the 93rd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Prosthodontics in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
The Scientific Program Committee, under the leadership of Tom Taylor, has brought together an outstanding group of speakers with an array of vital topics insuring an informative Scientific Session and beneficial learning experience.
Dave and Susan Felton, along with our first lady, Laraine, have selected truly memorable social outings for the spouses and couples. One of the highlights is our visit to the Rose Hill Mansion, touted as the South's most beautiful Plantation House - and, it very well could be. The sprawling grounds are framed by 500 year old oak trees covered in Spanish moss. The pond is home to hundreds of egrets and swans. The mansion has many priceless antiques including a magnificent, full size, antique grand piano. To our delight, AP Fellow Rainer Bergmann has agreed to play this incredible piano during our private tour of the mansion.
The Spouse/Guest Outing includes a private dolphin cruise on the Vagabond out of Harbour Town. The playful resident dolphins always show up and put on show in the protected waters of Calibogue Sound. The Vagabond will do a rare "cruise-by" of the fabulous mansions on the very private Daufuskie Island. Back to the dock for lunch at the scenic Waterfront Café, followed by what I call "Free-Range Shopping" at the quaint boutiques of picturesque Harbour Town.
Thank you for taking part in the fellowship and scholarship of our Hilton Head Meeting.
