America's Dental Meeting commences today with events that spotlight dentists' personal stories and allow colleagues to interact and network on the Exhibit Hall floor.

The Opening General Session, presented by ACT Oral Care, will convene today from 8-9 a.m. in the Georgia World Congress Center, Building B, Exhibit Hall B5.

Three member dentists will lead the program: Dr. John Gammichia, of Apopka, Florida; Dr. Jim Kreutzer, of Kenosha, Wisconsin; and Dr. Josephine Chang Pallotto, of Lansing, Illinois.

The members will share their personal stories — how being a dentist has made a difference in their lives and allowed them to make an impact on their practices, families and communities.

At 9 a.m., the Exhibit Hall opens and continuing education courses will begin. The hall closes at 5:30 p.m.

The ADA 2017 Block Party is scheduled for 6-9 p.m. tonight at Legacy Ventures Restaurant Row, 300 Marietta St., NW.
