2020 IADR/AADR/CADR GENERAL SESSIONThe 98th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR was to be held in conjunction with the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 44th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from March 18-21, 2020 in Washington, D.C., USA. Due to COVID 19 and the world pandemic, the meeting had to be canceled, but we were able to collect some of the science that was planned for presentation to be available to our members as part of an on demand meeting.
The recordings in this library are a selection of the science that was to be presented onsite at the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, IADR Centennial Plenaries and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.
This session can be purchased as part of the full meeting recordings within the product bundles
SESSION DESCRIPTIONModern-day dentistry and orthodontics in the U.S. were constructed upon a strong foundation of growth and development research. This foundation began in the inaugural edition of the Journal of Dental Research in 1919 with a two-page report on the importance of nutrition on the growth of teeth and jaws by the founding editor, William J. Gies. As new areas of research have been developed, the importance of growth and development research has remained constant throughout the century-long history of the IADR and JDR.
Coincident with the founding of the association, a number of growth studies emerged with the goal of characterizing normal craniofacial and dental development. Among the earliest of these was the Bolton study (Cleveland, Ohio) and the Fels Longitudinal Study (Yellow Springs, Ohio). Key to these studies was the development of cephalometric techniques resulting from the growing field of radiography. Longitudinal cephalograms of children were collected across critical growth periods resulting in standards applicable in clinical practice. The number of growth studies increased in the 1940s and 50s leading to a long history of research into craniofacial growth that continues to this day. Modern-day techniques including three-dimensional radiographic or photogrammetric approaches are being combined with sophisticated analytic approaches expanding the toolkit available to the clinician.
The symposium participants will discuss the historical context of modern-day approaches and techniques currently used in craniofacial growth and development research.

- The audience will learn about well-established and emerging imaging modalities and analytical methods in human craniofacial growth research.
- The audience will learn how historic longitudinal growth data can be used to answer novel research questions when combined with cutting-edge analytical methods.
- The audience will gain understanding of the historical context of future directions in craniofacial growth research.
