ADA New Dentist Committee Hosts 26th New Dentist Conference
June 22-24, Washington, D.C.
CHICAGO, March 23, 2012 – Get ready to enjoy top-notch continuing education and leadership development opportunities for new dentists at the American Dental Association (ADA) 26th New Dentist Conference, which takes place just two blocks away from the White House at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C., June 22-24.
Dentists are invited to join the ADA New Dentist Committee for a weekend of networking, continuing education and camaraderie at a conference that caters to the unique needs of new dentists — dentists who earned their dental degree less than 10 years ago. The New Dentist Committee selected each clinical, professional and practice management course offered at this year’s meeting such as emerging technologies, aesthetic and restorative dentistry, preventing practice embezzlement and increasing production. Attendees will have the opportunity to earn up to 13 hours of continuing education (CE) credits in courses chosen to provide tips on how to be a better dentist, a stronger leader and a more effective communicator. Attendees will also have the opportunity to earn up to two hours of CE by participating in a full-day of pre-conference programming devoted to leadership development.
Lunches and special events are included with the $375 registration fee for ADA members and conference attendees enjoy a discount when booking rooms at the host hotel. Those who register by April 27 are eligible to win early-bird incentives such as free registration or lodging at the New Dentist Conference or free registration or three nights lodging at the ADA Annual Session in San Francisco in October. Hotel registration deadline for the New Dentist Conference is May 18 and pre-conference registration deadline is June 12.
