In 2008, Dr. Stephen Snow was invited to speak at the annual conference to share the concepts, perspectives, and techniques he had developed regarding "Smile Design".  (A simplified summary of those techniques can be found here.)

In 2013, Dr. Snow was invited to join the Academy, and last weekend, at the 2014 conference, he was inducted as an active member at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Chicago, IL.  He was deeply honored to share the moment with several esteemed colleagues and mentors (pictured here at the presentation ceremony with 2013-2014 Academy President, Dr. Glenn DuPont).

One highlight of the lectures at this year's meeting was the presentation of information about how snoring (as well as sleep apnea and airway obstruction) can influence nightime tooth grinding, premature tooth wear, and even tooth malalignment.
