SmileCon® 2023 volunteer registration opens June 7. Consider one of the below positions, which get you one free registration to SmileCon.
Hospitality volunteers will be stationed throughout the convention center to welcome SmileCon attendees and answer questions.
Responsibilities: Volunteers must be able to greet attendees and help answer questions in English (even better if you are bilingual in Spanish); be familiar with the Orange County Convention Center and surrounding area; and be comfortable standing in one location for a few hours.
Benefits: Confirmed hospitality volunteers will be eligible for a free Dental Central Pass, credit for which may be applied toward the purchase of a Smile Pass or Platinum Smile Pass. Hospitality volunteers will also receive a SmileCon t-shirt and complimentary meal vouchers and parking the day of their assignment.
Terms and Conditions: Hospitality volunteers will be charged $1.00 at the time of registration and, if their commitment is not fulfilled, registrants will be charged the full price for their selected registration pass. Exceptions will be handled on a case-by-case basis. The ADA reserves the right to charge your credit card on file for these penalty fees.
To volunteer for a hospitality position, register on June 7 and click “Yes” to the volunteering option to select the hospitality shift(s) that best suits your schedule.
Speaker Concierges are the onsite liaisons between speakers and the ADA; each speaker concierge will manage a speaker’s itinerary and ensure a timely schedule is maintained.
Responsibilities: The speaker concierge will reach out to the speaker before the meeting to welcome him/her to SmileCon, greet the speaker upon their arrival at the speaker ready room (or other pre-determined location), facilitate courses, make general announcements, introduce the speaker(s) and announce the course verification code number for continuing education credit at the end of the course.
Benefits: Confirmed speaker concierges will be eligible for a free Dental Central Pass, credit for which may be applied toward the purchase of a Smile Pass or Platinum Smile Pass. They will also receive continuing education credit for courses attended while volunteering, as well as complimentary meals and parking during their assignment.
Terms and Conditions: Only ADA member dentists are eligible to serve as speaker concierges.
Please do not register for the meeting yet. You must first fill out the interest form if you are interested in being a speaker concierge. Only ADA member dentists are eligible for speaker concierge positions at this time.
Once the volunteer schedule is ready, ADA staff will contact you with your assignment and the volunteer group code to begin your complimentary registration.
