CHICAGO, Illinois—Oral Health America’s has announced that its 22nd Annual Gala and Benefit will return to the Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier in Chicago.

The 2012 benefit will be held Feb. 22, and features a new theme: Impacting America’s Smiles.

Registration for the event is open online at www.oralhealthamerica.org.

“The OHA Gala is frequently referred to as the dental industry’s premier networking event of the year,” said Michael Orecchia, vice president, Septodont, and the 2012 Gala co-chair. “We believe that our new theme and venue return will shine a light on how the industry supports OHA’s programs that are bringing healthy mouths to life.”

Held annually during the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting, the Oral Health America Gala is a networking event that regularly sells out. The black tie optional evening features a cocktail reception, four-course dinner, and dancing with live music. All this is included in the ticket price of $300 per seat or $3,000 for a table of 10.

OHA seeks event sponsors at the Gold ($3,000), Platinum ($5,000), Diamond ($10,000) and, an Annual Showcase Sponsor ($22,000). New for 2012, Oral Health America will offer two technology sponsorships ($15,000) that will include logoed presence on electronic bidding tablets and smartphones that are used for the silent and live auction. All sponsorships offer an opportunity for companies to showcase their support.
