On the weekend of February 20-21, 2016, the Virginia Society of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons (http://www.vsoms.org) met for their 2016 Annual Meeting in Richmond, VA.  Our very own oral surgeon in Northern Virginia M. Tim Gocke, DDS, who is President-Elect of VSOMS, presented an award at this meeting to the outgoing president James Solomon, DDS. The award is in recognition of great leadership and service as the President of the Virginia Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

The VSOMS annual meeting provided continuing education courses to all the attendees. Multiple, enlightening lectures were presented by Dr. Gregory Waskewicz, a prosthodontist with a long, successful career in the Navy. The presentations included the following: Restoring Function, Esthetics and Masticatory Stability with Endosseous Implants, Treatment Planning of the Edentulous Patient with Dental Implants: A Prosthodontic Procedure with a Surgical Component and Surgical and Prosthetic Rehabilitation of Osseous and Soft Tissue Defects from Trauma and Disease.

The Virginia Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons next annual meeting will take place in Williamsburg, VA.  We are very proud to announce that M. Tim Gocke, DDS will be presiding over next years meeting.
