Two decades of lifelong learning

The ADA Seminar Series is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

To mark the occasion, the ADA Center for Continuing Education and Lifelong Learning is offering a variety of lectures and hands-on workshops on dental topics with 24 new speakers and more than 30 new courses. The 2009 ADA Seminar Series features a total of 80 speakers and 90 courses.

All program bookings are managed by ADA CELL, which develops lifelong learning programs for members in cooperation with dental organizations. Dental organizations, study clubs, and component and constituent societies can now begin the booking process by visiting the ADA's Web site at

The 20th Anniversary Seminar Series features topics such as biomedical sciences, diagnosis and treatment planning, emergency disaster preparedness and forensics, emerging technologies in dentistry, endodontics, esthetic dentistry, ethics and law, medical emergencies in the dental office, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, preventive dentistry, practice management and risk management.

The Pankey Institute is also launching a new workshop in celebration of the Seminar Series' anniversary on "Excellence in Provisionalization."

Be the first to host the new ADA Seminar Series, "New 2009 Code." This workshop will highlight the four new codes, 29 revisions to the current code and information on misuse of the code by third-party payers. Participants will engage in activities designed to identify the changes and ways to communicate effectively with all third-party payers and patients.

As an added bonus, book and present the New 2009 Code workshop anytime from September through December of this year and receive a $100 discount on a workshop booked for 2009. To take advantage of this opportunity, you must book and present the code workshop during 2008. This offer expires Dec. 31, 2008.

ADA CELL has implemented a number of changes in the booking procedures, too, including a new voicemail system and an online seminar inquiry form designed to speed up the booking of seminars. For details, visit the Web site, or call Ext. 2908. Seminars can now be booked within one week.

The 20th Anniversary Seminar Series thanks Patterson Dental, Henry Schein Dental and Colgate for their support.
