Complimentary Evening Lectures

In 2005, Mission Valley Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Inc., inaugurated a series of complimentary instructional programs for dental professionals, their staff, and laboratory technicians. Initially held during the summer months, the programs proved so popular that they were expanded. Lectures currently are offered from late April through mid-October.

Topics range from practice-management issues to new treatment challenges and technologies. All programs run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and are typically held in the West Auditorium of Scripps Mercy Hospital. Three CE units are offered per lecture.

A light dinner is provided, and tuition is complimentary. However, participants must reserve a place by calling Mission Valley Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Phone Number (619) 298-2200, Ext. 121, or by e-mailing
