We were thrilled to see the high level of engagement and participation from the delegates. This is a testament to the importance of continuing dental education. We also had a great opportunity to network amongst fellow professionals, after a lapse of 4 years. This event augurs well for our profession and we look forward to the next edition of the AOSC in 2025.”
