If you decide to register on site, plan to be at the ODA registration desk no less than one hour before your first CE course begins, in order to appropriately process your information.  Be sure to select alternate courses in case your first choices are sold out.

Registration and a name badge are required to participate in all on-site Annual Session activities.

Please only register once – do not mail your registration if you have already faxed it in or registered online.  Mailed registrations must be postmarked by August 31.  Faxed registrations with credit card payments will be accepted through September 1.


To be eligible for reduced registration fees, your registration form and payment must be postmarked by August 2.  Registration materials, including name badge and event confirmations, will be mailed to each attendee who registers by that date.  For any registrations received after that date, badges must be picked up at the ODA on-site registration area.  Pre-registration is advised – not only will it save you money, but you will also avoid standing in line on site and the risk of being closed out of popular CE programs!

Key to Course Fees:

M = ODA/ADA Member Dentist
NMD = Non-member Dentist
S/O = Hygienists, Dental Assistants, Office Managers, Front Office Staff and all other registrants


Proof of student status (submit copy of student ID or ASDA membership number) is required for all student-status registrations, including dental students, dental residents, dental assisting students and dental hygiene students.

Dental students pay no registration fee and may attend any CE lecture course at no cost, space permitting.  Posted fees for hands-on courses apply.  There is also a special, free reception just for students, residents and new dentists that dental students can register for; see event code E95.

Dental residents who are ADA members pay no registration fee and may attend any CE lecture course at no cost, space permitting.  Posted fees for hands-on courses apply.  Dental residents who are not ADA members will be charged posted non-member fees or can join the ADA for free in 2024.

Dental hygiene and post-secondary dental assisting classes are not charged a registration fee if attending Annual Session as a group. Every group of five students must be accompanied by an instructor or appropriate chaperone while in the Exhibit Hall. The pre-registration fee for post-secondary student dental assistants attending individually is $5, and increases to $15 on-site. Hygiene and assisting instructors, or students registering individually can call the ODA to register or for additional information at (614) 486-2700 or (800) 282-1526.


ODA Members who have been practicing for 10 years or less will receive a one-time $50 discount on any paid CE course added to their registration. The discount is applied to only one course and information provided by each attendee is matched with ODA membership records to validate the discount.


Exhibits Only Passes are available to any dentist or dental team member.

For Thursday or Friday during the meeting, any ADA member dentist can register for the pass for $35 and non-member dentists can register for $75 prior to the pre-registration deadline (August 2). The regular and onsite fees are $45 and $95, respectively. On Saturday, any member dentist or staff member can register for free.

The Exhibits Only pass is good for one day only and does not include any advantage of other registration categories.  Registrants in this category may not register for any CE courses – free or paid, live or online – cannot attend the Table Clinics or Related Programs, and do not receive any other benefit included with other Annual Session registration categories and fees. Exhibits Only passes will not be mailed and should be picked up at the on-site registration desk on the specific day of the pass.


ODA members in the Retired Life category do not pay a registration fee if registered before the pre-registration deadline.  A discounted $62 registration fee applies after the pre-registration deadline.  Dentists in this category may audit any CE lecture course at no charge, space permitting; to receive CE credit for the course, the member must pay the posted course fee.


Spouses of ADA member dentists who do not work in the dental office may register for free.


Non-member dentists may apply a portion of the registration fee toward 2025 ODA membership dues. To take advantage of this offer, contact the ODA membership department at (614) 486-2700 or


For a cancellation refund, written requests must be received by the ODA no later than September 1, 2024.  A $20 service fee will apply for each cancellation. All refunds will be processed two to four weeks after the 2024 Annual Session. Refunds will be made via the same method of payment, when possible. The Ohio Dental Association reserves the right to cancel or reschedule Annual Session due to unforeseen circumstances. Registrants will be notified.
