San Antonio—Combine learning, networking, shopping, exploring and relaxing with a trip to ADA 2014—America's Dental Meeting, set for Oct. 9-14 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

Registration opens May 1 at

Those who attended the 2013 annual meeting may register two weeks before registration opens to the general public. Those individuals will receive an email with a special access code to register on April 15.

Those attending can choose from more than 300 continuing education courses, including the ADA's innovative and award-winning Education in the Round courses and CE opportunities on the exhibit floor. More than 550 exhibitors will showcase their state-of-the-art products and services Oct. 9-11 in the exhibit hall. The ADA House of Delegates will meet Oct. 10-14 and more than 150 related dental groups will also convene during the meeting.

Special events include the Opening General Session and Distinguished Speaker Series featuring President George W. Bush Oct. 9 at the Alamodome, the ADA Foundation Give Kids A Smile Gala Oct. 10 at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter and the New Dentist Reception Oct. 10 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

More than 26 million visitors each year enjoy San Antonio's historic and diverse atmosphere, including the two most visited attractions in Texas—the Alamo and the Riverwalk. The Alamo City is the seventh-largest city in the U.S. and the third-fastest-growing city in America, yet it retains its friendly, low-key reputation as a safe, friendly, walkable city rich in the arts, dining, night life, historic architecture and shopping.

The ADA 2014 Preliminary Program offers an overview of daily events, a complete listing of continuing education courses, an exhibition hall preview, trip planning information, San Antonio visitor information and registration and housing information.

Print copies are free. Order from the ADA Catalog or at (click on the Continuing Education tab) for May delivery. The Preliminary Program will also be available as a PDF online in April.
