The annual Midwest Dental Conference, hosted by the UMKC Dental and Dental Hygienists’ Alumni Associations, kicked off its four days of scientific sessions, technical exhibits and social events on Thursday, April 10, at the Sheraton and Westin Crown Center Hotels in downtown Kansas City, Mo.

Thursday’s highlights included continuing education programs for the dental specialties of periodontics, orthodontics, prosthodontics, oral surgery, and pediatric dentistry. The day was capped off with the annual Pouring from the Heart fundraising gala Thursday evening at the Westin Hotel’s ballroom. The gourmet dinner and live auction raises money to support impoverished patients receiving care from the UMKC Oncology Dental Support Clinic.
