The New Dentist Committee also offers a full day of leadership programming on leadership effectiveness, engaging students and new dentists in organized dentistry and how to amplify leadership skills using social media.

Lunches and special events are included with the $375 registration fee for ADA members. Conference attendees enjoy a discount when booking rooms at the host hotel. Those who enter by May 24 are eligible to win early-bird incentives such as free registration or lodging at the New Dentist Conference or free registration or three nights lodging at the ADA Annual Session in New Orleans in October. Full sweepstakes rules are available on ADA.org.
