Join us in Columbus for 2016 ODA Annual Session, and help celebrate our anniversary!

On June 26 and 27, 1866, forty-one dentists met in Columbus and developed a Constitution and Bylaws around the goals of creating a statewide association for Ohio dentists.

The purpose of this new organization was to advance the dental profession, protect the public, foster fellowship and encourage more formal professional education for dentists.  During those warm summer days 150 years ago, Ohio’s statewide dental association – then known as the "Ohio State Dental Society" – was born.  And dentistry in Ohio would never be the same!

We hope you will join us at the 2016 Annual Session, which serves as the culmination of our year-long celebration and will present one-of-a-kind educational and social events that you will not want to miss!  Follow the links below and on the right side menu for more information.
