What makes our conventions so exciting?

CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry has gained a reputation as the must-attend convention for dental professionals across the U.S. and beyond.

In 2020, we brought CDA Presents right to you. We transformed our live convention into a safe and fun interactive event through a new digital platform. Attendees experienced cutting-edge C.E., were inspired by leading speakers and made connections in our online exhibit hall. In just three days in September, more than 40 courses for the entire dental team were presented, plus live Q & A sessions and real-time chats with exhibitors and experts.

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, attendees registered remotely and attended their choice of 40+ educational sessions, explored the exhibit hall and networked with exhibitors and colleagues. In many ways, a virtual convention is just like an in-person convention, but you can attend from wherever it works for you.

Why did CDA host a virtual convention?

Health and safety considerations and restrictions on large gatherings due the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 motivated CDA to create a convention that would provide the interactive experience of CDA Presents — while still making it accessible to all attendees.

When will the next CDA convention take place?

CDA Presents is scheduled for Anaheim May 13–15, 2021, and San Francisco September 9–11, 2021.
