Townie Meeting, April 23 to 26 — at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas  — should be on your CE itinerary.
The 11th annual dental extravaganza, which includes followers of the online dental community,, promises “top-notch education, fabulous entertainment and engaging camaraderie”.

A brainchild of Dr. Tarun Agarwal, an East Coast clinician, and Dr. Sameer Puri, a West Coast dentist, according to, Townie Meeting provides attendees with cutting edge courses and time to socialize and meet fellow practitioners with the same interests. Legend has it that the two founders had shared case feedback, patient advice — even workout tips– on message boards, but had never met face to face. Townie was their solution.

At this year’s event, “Townie Talks”  — modeled after the TED (technology, entertainment and design) Talks or the TED Conferences — speakers will include: Dr. Howard Farran, Dr. Joe Steven, Dr. Steve Buchanan, Garrett Gundersen, Trisha O’Hehir, Dr. Mark Murphy, Dr. Mark Trolio, Dr. Sameer Puri, Dr. Tarun Agarwal, Fred Joyal, Dr. Lee Ann Brady and Dr. Michael DiTolla.
