The conference will take place two blocks from the White House at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C.

The New Dentist Committee selected each clinical, professional, and practice management course offered at the 2012 meeting such as emerging technologies, esthetic and restorative dentistry, preventing practice embezzlement, and increasing production.

Attendees will have the opportunity to earn up to 13 hours of continuing education credits in courses chosen to provide tips on how to be a better dentist, a stronger leader, and a more effective communicator. Attendees will also have the opportunity to earn up to two hours of CE by participating in a full-day of preconference programming devoted to leadership development.

Lunches and special events are included with the $375 registration fee for ADA members, and conference attendees enjoy a discount when booking rooms at the host hotel.

Those who register by April 27 are eligible to win early-bird incentives, such as free registration or lodging at the New Dentist Conference or free registration or three nights lodging at the ADA Annual Session in San Francisco in October. Hotel registration deadline for the New Dentist Conference is May 18, and pre-conference registration deadline is June 12.

The ADA 26th New Dentist Conference is presented by the ADA New Dentist Committee. The New Dentist Committee is comprised of dentist volunteers from each of the 17 ADA districts, and is a standing committee of the ADA Board of Trustees. Serving as the voice of the new dentist, the committee addresses issues and concerns of new dentists and develops resources to help members succeed.
