New and Emerging Speaker Series


Be a speaker at ADA 2017

The ADA's New and Emerging Speaker Series offers up-and-coming professional educators the chance to present a one-hour lecture at the annual meeting. A select few will have the opportunity to present at a future annual meeting and become part of a highly recognized group of presenters. New and Emerging Speakers will also be seen by scouts from other dental meetings, promoted on the annual meeting website and listed in the Onsite Guide.

Submit Proposal

All proposals must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. EST on June 23, 2017.
Please follow all instructions; incomplete proposals will not be considered.

The Advisory Committee on Annual Meetings will review all proposals and notify individuals of their acceptance by Friday, July 21, 2017. New and Emerging Speaker Series presenters are responsible for their own registration, housing and travel expenses, and arrangements. Presenters are not eligible for compensation by the ADA.
