First-time attendees get special treatment at annual session

Honolulu—If this year's ADA annual session is your first, be sure to visit an area specially designed to enhance your experience.

Located on the third floor of the Hawaii Convention Center, the First-Time Attendee Orientation Center is a place for session-goers to obtain information about annual session, plan their activities for the day or just rest their weary feet. Volunteer dentists and ADA staff will be on hand to assist first-time attendees and answer questions about organized dentistry.

The First-time Attendee Orientation Center will be open from Thursday, Oct. 1, to Sunday, Oct. 4 (7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.).

For the past five years, the ADA has offered a special registration deal for dentists who have yet to join the ADA. Nonmember dentists are invited to register for annual session at a reduced rate—$75 instead of the regular nonmember rate of $750. When taking advantage of this offer, dentists can experience a sampling of the camaraderie that 157,000 of their colleagues already enjoy and see up close the benefits of belonging to the premier organization representing the dental profession. The offer can be redeemed only once, so those who attended the 2005-08 annual sessions at the reduced rate are no longer eligible.
