Shop, network, learn: The Laser Pavilion is one of 10 areas in the Exhibit Hall offering CE opportunities during ADA 2014.
San Antonio — The ADA offers those attending ADA 2014 — America's Dental Meeting a productive and innovative take on the power lunch – or a free hour any time the Exhibit Hall is open with 10 different options to earn continuing education credit on the exhibit floor.

"Everyone who attends the ADA annual meeting will want to experience firsthand the award-winning and innovative CE opportunities that are available on the floor," said Dr. James Galati, chair of the Council on ADA Sessions.

"There are several different focus areas where you can find ADA CE Live courses," added Dr. Galati. "Options range from professional topics like dental specialties, technology, office design, student research and hands-on clinical testing to personal health, fitness, work/life balance and even networking and CE in Spanish and Portuguese from international clinicians."
