San Francisco –– More than 500 companies will participate in the Exhibit Hall at the ADA FDI World Dental Congress Sept. 4-8 in San Francisco.

For the first time, the Exhibit Hall will be in the renovated, “state-of-the-art” Moscone Center, said Dr. C. Roger Macias Jr., general chair of the ADA Advisory Committee on Annual Meetings.

“We on the Committee on Annual Meetings have had the pleasure of touring this amazing center, and we are looking forward to showcasing this grand exhibit hall for both the attendees and the exhibitors,” Dr. Macias said.

What sets ADA FDI 2019 apart from other meetings is its display of exhibitors from around the world with advances in techniques and materials, he said.

The Cellerant Best of Class Technology Awards will showcase some of these advances.

The awards were created by Dr. Lou Shuman, CEO of Cellerant Consulting Group, to make dental professionals aware of the most innovative products available and to inform dental manufacturers of what experts consider to be the leading technologies.

“We are entering a new era in dentistry –– one that will change how we diagnose, treat and manage our patients and practices," Dr. Shuman said. "This was a breakthrough year in product and services technologies.”

The Exhibitor Spotlight starting at 10 a.m. Sept. 5-7 also will highlight what is new and exciting in the dental industry with presentations and demonstrations in the South Hall of the Moscone Center.

Beyond dental technology, the Exhibit Hall will feature the ADA Practice Excellence Booth, where dental professionals can hear from speakers on marketing, finances and more, attend campfire courses focused on dental benefits and other topics in small group settings, participate in self-directed activities that test their HIPAA knowledge and problem-solving skills, and learn more about dental standards through an interactive journey.

Although the main stage and campfire courses are selling out quickly, attendees can grab a spot in the standby seating line for any free course. If seats are open once a course begins, those in line will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Exhibit Hall also provides opportunities for ADA members to meet face to face with ADA Member Client Services and Member Advantage staff.

The Member Success Center will offer resources on dental benefits, finances, clinical guidelines, practice transitions, advocacy efforts and more, while the Member Advantage area will feature endorsed products and services with member-exclusive discounts.
