TOP 6 REASONS TO ATTEND THE 2021 ODA ANNUAL SESSION
The 2021 ODA Annual Session will be held on Sept. 30-Oct. 2 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
We polled our ODA Annual Session Committee members to find out the top reasons why they like to attend the event each year.
OUTSTANDING CE CLOSE TO HOME
The ODA Annual Session features educational opportunities where dentists and their staff can see multiple high-quality speakers right here in Ohio. This year’s Annual Session features 63 CE courses with 132 hours of in-person CE and 33 hours of virtual CE available from 45 different speakers. Earn your CE before the end of the biennium to renew your license on Dec. 31, 2021.
NETWORKING WITH DENTISTS FROM ACROSS THE STATE
ODA Annual Session features unique opportunities where dentists can network with hundreds of other dentists from across the state who have similar goals and interests. Whether it’s bouncing ideas off of each other during a CE course or exchanging thoughts about a product in the Exhibit Hall or chatting over a drink at a special event, Annual Session gives you the opportunity to network with your peers and colleagues.
PURCHASING EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES AT A DISCOUNT
The ODA Annual Session Exhibit Hall is one of the largest in the area, and many of our vendors offer special discounts to Annual Session attendees. Meet with a sales rep to ask personalized questions, experience products and equipment hands-on, and comparison shop in the Exhibit Hall to find what you need for your office.
SEEING FRIENDS AND CLASSMATES
Annual Session is a great time to catch up with old classmates and friends, especially after we’ve missed out on many in-person events due to COVID-19. Meet up at one of the great restaurants near the Greater Columbus Convention Center or attend one of our special events with a friend!
GREAT ENTERTAINMENT AND SPECIAL EVENTS
The ODA Annual Session will feature many special events, including comedian Greg Hahn; Dinner with the Speakers at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse; the New Dentist Social; MATCH @ ODA Annual Session; keynote speaker Bertice Berry; Celebrating Women in Dentistry: Honoring 2020 ODA President, Dr. Sharon Parsons and Other Female Dental Leaders; the Callahan Celebration of Excellence; and The BASH! Celebrating 2021 ODA President Dr. David Kimberly, Featuring Kyle Primous and the K-Street Band.
RELAX AND SPENDING TIME AWAY FROM THE OFFICE WITH STAFF
ODA Annual Session is a great time to relax and have fun with your staff outside of the office. Many offices like to schedule team dinners together at nearby restaurants and attend courses together as a group so they can learn new skills to implement in the office.
