This is the first annual conference, for assistants! We have waited a long time. Our goal is to bring Dental Assistants together, we are not alone on this journey. There are other conferences for dentists, hygienists, and other team members. Finally, there’s a conference just for us! We recommend all Dental Assistants within your practice attend--there is a discount for multiple attendees.
The Dental Assistant National Conference for Excellence is a two-day event which includes 16 CE hours. Presentations will be broken up throughout the day on Friday and Saturday. Sessions are all in one room this year, 45 minutes each to maximize learning. There will be a speaker lounge to talk and mingle with the speakers. Also, two open panel discussions with the speakers from each session, a Vendor Mix and Mingle Thursday night with swag bag, prizes and more. Friday night will be our Dental Assistants Rock party. Cash bar and Finger foods.
Come ready to learn and make new friends! Bring a notepad and pen to take notes during presentations. We recommend casual or dressy casual attire for the conference presentations. Wear layers so you can be comfortable no matter the temperature in the conference hall.
