The ADA kicks off its Annual Session on Monday, Oct. 10, at 8 a.m. with former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Ph.D., as its “2011 Distinguished Speaker.”  Dr. Rice currently serves as a member of the board of trustees of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and is the author of “Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family,” which shares how her upbringing in segregated Birmingham, Ala., along with her strong, caring family, helped shape the course of her life. The Distinguished Speaker Series is free to everyone registered for the Annual Session. Official badges are required for entry into all Annual Session events including the Distinguished Speaker Series.

More than 260 Continuing Education Courses Available

The ADA Annual Session offers attendees the choice of more than 260 relevant and topical continuing education courses such as pain control, dental sleep medicine, esthetic dental procedures, forensics, geriatric dentistry and oral systemic health, with more than 50 percent of CE seats free with registration.  More than 70 hands-on workshops will also be offered.  Attendees can also choose from unique learning opportunities such as live-patient courses in the “Education in the Round” learning format, and a variety of high-tech courses in the ADA’s “LOC” (Learn, Optimize and Connect) featuring hands-on laser education, live-patient CAD/CAM demonstrations and more.

Exhibit Hall Features Products from 500 Companies

The World Marketplace Exhibition, open Monday, Oct. 10, to Wednesday, Oct. 12, 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., offers attendees the opportunity to view and compare the latest dental products and services from more than 500 exhibiting companies.
