We would like to extend an invitation to become an exhibitor at the 66th Annual Scientific Session of the Western Society of Periodontology (WSP) which will be held in San Diego, CA, April 6-8, 2018. For four years now the WSP has sold out its exhibit hall and has grown dramatically with professionals. We can expect more than 250 attendees consisting of periodontists, general dentists, and dental hygienists who attended the 2016 and 17 meetings. Additionally, our members have told us their #1 choice for a site of a future WSP meeting should be San Diego.

Our speakers are truly world-class speakers on leading edge topics that are interesting to all attendees. Each speaker brings his own message with the goal of the "Synergy For Success: Innovations in Periodontology" Our program speakers include Stanley Malamed, Frank Schwartz , Roger Levin, Dhaval Patel, Ben Miraglia, Rodrigo Neiva, Bobby Birdi and Dennis Tarnow.

We will continue to offer a dental hygiene day highlighted by three different nationally known and recognized dental hygiene clinicians. This promises to be a dynamic and informative educational program worthy of your time and effort. Additionally, we are continuing hands-on focus sessions.

Much thought was put into benefits for our corporate sponsors. Collaboration involves health care professionals and corporations that go out of their way to help organized dentistry. We encourage our members throughout the year to support those who support us.

This year we are continuing our expanded exhibit hall to offer each exhibiting company a larger display area than the WSP has ever offered and even more space for our sponsors. Each exhibitor will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and their company in front of the entire audience and interact throughout the weekend with attendees. Exhibits are arranged in the area where attendees have their meals and refreshments. “Basic sponsor” fee is $1,600.

We also offer "Titanium Level" sponsorship, for $2,850. This includes a longer table and other benefits with your ability to select your location. Titanium sponsors will be prominently recognized during the program. There are also additional sponsorship opportunities which can bring recognition to your company. These include breakfast, breaks, lunch, cocktail reception, a spousal event and a silent auction.

The WSP is a purely educational organization and its main objective is to promote and facilitate the exchange of scientific information among all professionals involved in periodontal and implant care; the periodontist, restorative dentist, and dental hygienist. The organization recognizes the importance of and seeks partnerships with the corporate sector in order to enhance the delivery of continuing education programs.

About The Western Society of Periodontology:

The Western Society of Periodontology is unique in that its members encompass the spectrum of dental professionals: periodontists, general or other specialty dentists, and hygienists. Its mission is to provide unity of understanding among these groups, so that the issues facing 21st century dentistry can be approached with all the expertise we can muster. Another important distinguishing characteristic is that the WSP is thoroughly non-political. Along with other organizations, WSP is dedicated to education of both members and patients; it differs, however in that its focus includes neither national nor state issues, but rather those encompassing a massive western region.
