This year’s Annual Session – Connect. Learn. Excel. – is Oct. 3-6 in Columbus and will feature nationally known speakers, a variety of CE for the entire dental team, an expansive Exhibit Hall and special events.

One of the highlights of this year’s Annual Session is the Pankey Experience, where Pankey Institute faculty will come to Columbus and present 18 lectures and workshops.

“This is a rare opportunity for dentists in Ohio to experience Pankey Institute courses right in their own back yard,” said Dr. Mark Bronson, 2019 Annual Session general chair.

ODA Annual Session also will feature the Madow Brothers, who are known for their entertaining, spontaneous style and content-packed programs, on Friday, Oct. 4, from 9 a.m. to noon and 2-5 p.m.

For those who missed Dr. Mark Murphy’s shading workshop last year, he will be back this year presenting the course twice on Thursday, Oct. 3. Be sure to register early before spots begin to fill up.

There will also be 18 hours of free CE available to dentists, including 10 in Ohio State Dental Board Category A and a free Medicaid course.

“We are excited to offer a variety of great courses to help dentists sharpen their skills and improve their practices,” Bronson said. “We also have opportunities for front office staff, hygienists and assistants as well as team building courses for the entire offices. The ODA Annual Session Committee knows how important quality CE is to every dental practice.”

In addition to these great CE opportunities, the ODA Annual Session is also home to the largest Exhibit Hall in the area with more than 200 companies showcasing their products and services.

On Thursday evening, be sure to attend Marketplace Mixer with the Madow Brothers in the Exhibit Hall, which will feature free appetizers. On Friday evening, stop by the Exhibit Hall for Sip and Shop, which will feature free beer, wine and soft drinks, plus attendees can enter to win a $2,000 Visa gift card (plus two runners-up will receive a $500 Visa gift card). And Saturday will feature Grab a Bite, Grab a Deal! in the Exhibit Hall, where the first 250 people who stop by will get a $10 food voucher to use inside the Exhibit Hall.

“Not only is our Exhibit Hall a great opportunity for dentists to comparison shop and try out new products they need in their office, but they can also enjoy our special events with their team and others from across the state,” Bronson said.

This year, there will be NO events in the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Most activities will take place in the Greater Columbus Convention Center and the Hilton Columbus Downtown. Book a room in the ODA’s hotel block at the Hilton by visiting
