About CDA Presents

What is a virtual convention?

A virtual convention is an event hosted in an online environment that provides more real-time interaction and opportunities to explore and connect than a typical e-learning experience or webinar series. Through a new digital platform, you will be able to register for and remotely attend your choice of 60+ C.E. courses, explore the exhibit hall and network with fellow attendees. In many ways, it is just like an in-person convention, but you can attend from wherever it works for you.

Why is CDA hosting a virtual convention?

Health and safety considerations and restrictions on large gatherings due the COVID-19 pandemic motivated CDA to create a convention that would provide the interactive experience of CDA Presents — while still making it accessible to all attendees. This flexible virtual platform provides a safe experience to more dentists with fewer time or travel barriers.

What days will the CDA’s virtual convention take place?

Thursday–Sunday, May 13–16, 2021 (Access to the exhibit hall and recorded courses will also be available for the following 30 days.)

What if my schedule does not allow me to join online for those days?

You are in luck! Your registration for the virtual convention comes with access to sessions for 30 days after the interactive event ends, So, you can explore recorded courses and shop exhibitors at your convenience until June 15, 2021.

Will I be able connect with other dentists at the virtual convention?

Yes! The convention features live chat rooms where you can network with other attendees from across the country, as well as the ability to interact real-time with exhibitors and participate in Q-and-As with speakers at the end of courses.
