Say aloha to 2009 annual session

Honolulu—Celebrate the ADA's 150th anniversary in paradise by attending the 2009 annual session Sept. 30-Oct. 4, 2009, at the Hawaii Convention Center.

The meeting kicks off on Wednesday evening, Sept. 30, with a spectacular opening general session featuring the 2009 distinguished speaker.

The ADA will also mark its sesquicentennial celebration with a series of special events including a fireworks show over the Pacific Ocean and more.

Those attending can choose from more than 180 continuing education programs Oct. 1-4, most free with registration. CE highlights include hands-on presentations at the Live Operatory Center; the Education Exchange Competition, a redesigned professional table clinic competition; a new Preventive Office of the Year Competition; and the 2009 Dental Office Design Competition. Post-session CE will also give attendees a chance to explore the islands of Kauai, Maui and Hawaii.

The ADA World Marketplace Exhibition, open Oct. 1-3, will offer the chance to see the latest products on the market, test drive and compare products and meet in person with suppliers.

Dentists can plan an incentive program for the dental team. A trip to Hawaii makes a great reward for achieving business goals.
