ADA Standards Committee on Dental Informatics to host in-person meetings before SmileCon

August 23, 2021 The American Dental Association Standards Committee on Dental Informatics will return to in-person meetings Oct. 8-10 at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, ahead of SmileCon, the ADA's reimagined annual meeting.

The committee meetings will kick off at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 8 with an opening plenary session. Working groups will meet throughout Oct. 8 and 9. A plenary session will then take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon Oct. 10.

ADA standards committee meetings provide a forum for the working groups to meet to exchange ideas and plan new and revised standards to ensure product safety and efficacy now and to provide useful, objective information on new and emerging technologies for the future.

Although there is no charge, registration is required to attend any of the committee meetings. Discounted hotel reservations are available.

For more information about the meetings, contact Paul Bralower at 1-800-621-8099, ext. 4129, or bralowerp@ada.org. For hotel and registration information, contact Marilyn Ward at 1-800-621-8099, ext. 2506, or wardm@ada.org.

The ADA is accredited by the American National Standards Institute to develop national standards for products and information technology used by dental professionals and consumers. There are currently more than 100 national standards, and more are under development. ADA involvement in the U.S. Technical Advisory Group for the International Organization for Standardization Technical Committee 106 on Dentistry ensures that the voice of U.S. dentistry is heard in international dental standards development, which has global impact.
