The cool air of Baguio coupled with the warm hospitality of its host made for a conducive day for learning as Benguet Dental Chapter hosted this years PCOMS Midyear Convention at the Newtown Hotel in Baguio City.
The day started early as the packed room listened to the first lecture on the state of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in the country, and as the day continued on with the other 5 scheduled lecture more tables are set up to accommodate the nearly 200 participants who attended the midyear convention.
The fellows of PCOMS together with attendees from dental chapters in northern luzon and some trainees gathered to listen to the lectures given by fellows Dr. Cynthia Del Castillo, Dr. Ida Balanag, Dr. Mariusse Esquillo, Dr. Jay Hansel Tabije, Dr. Eliezer Blanes and Dr. Mendelssohn Manalaysay. The program tailored for the practice in the region was carefully made by PCOMS continuing education chair Fellow Gary Brillo. It was comprised of topics from diagnosing oral lesions to interpreting imaging modalities then surgical approaches and treatment protocols to salivary gland lesions and cleft lip and palate.
The successful midyear convention is the last midyear convention under the term of PCOMS President Fellow Robert Achilles SM Quiambao which started in 2013. Shown here with the plaque of appreciation from the host chapter given to PCOMS.
Kudos to PCOMS and the Benguet Dental Chapter.
