CHICAGO--Oral Health America has reportedthat more than half of the available tickets for its 2009 Annual Gala Dinner and Silent Auction have already been sold.
The gala, which raises funds to support educational and service programs designed to improve oral health, will be held from 6:30-11 p.m. Feb. 26 at Navy Pier in Chicago.
Potential attendees were turned away last year and the organization anticipates that the upcoming event will be another sellout.
An online reservation system at www.oralhealthamerica.org has been set up to handle ticket requests. Guests may reserve individual seats or tables and can pay with a credit card or select the "bill me" option, which allows for company payments.
Anyone interested in attending the premier networking event of the dental industry is encouraged to purchase tickets now.
The Oral Health America Gala is held annually during the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting. The black tie-optional evening features dinner, dancing, and a silent auction.
