"The council is thrilled to participate in several live events at SmileCon 2022," said Dr. Bailey, council chair. "Be sure to stop by during the live taping of 'Dental Dilemmas' and then listen to the episodes on our podcast channel, which can be found on your favorite podcast platform.
"We are also enthusiastic about our continuing education event, as we have an exciting new format that will engage attendees through an interactive panel discussion about several ethical dilemmas."
CEBJA members will be hosting panel discussions titled "Dissecting Dental Dilemmas" in Dental Central Smile Lounge A on both Oct. 13 and Oct. 14 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. Panelists on Oct. 13 are Kathy Nichols, D.D.S. and Kelly Roth, D.D.S. and on Oct. 14 the panelists will be Drs. Depp and Mellion.

Attendees will receive one CE credit for each session, and refreshments will be provided.
