New CDA app offers dentistry news, CDA Presents info


To streamline information for members, CDA has incorporated the functionality from the previously standalone CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry app into a new, all-encompassing CDA app, which launched on April 21.  

Available for download from the iTunes App Store and the Google Play store, the CDA app features a CDA Presents section that offers attendees of the May 15-17 convention in Anaheim easy access to show schedules and speaker information, exhibitor and product listings, real-time alerts such as course availability, event photos and information on local hotels, restaurants and attractions.

The easy-to-use app is compatible with any smartphone operating on the iPhone or Android platform. It is also compatible with tablets that operate on those platforms, including the iPad. The app features a comprehensive and intuitive home screen that makes navigation seamless. For the user’s convenience, all phone numbers are click-to-call and email addresses and websites are click-to-connect. Attendees can also save exhibitor information to their contacts on their personal devices.

The main screen of the CDA Presents section of the app will feature an activity feed with real-time updates and alerts from the convention.

In addition to CDA Presents information, the new CDA app will include sections for the latest industry and member news directly from CDA, practice support information and member surveys through the now-incorporated myCDAvoice.

For those who use platforms other than iOS and Android, there also is a mobile web version of the app available at cdapresents.com/mobileapp.
