• New Orleans Dental Conference & LDA Annual Session, May 24 - 26, 2018

    The New York Times named New Orleans as the #1 place to go in 2018.  "There is no city in the world like New Orleans. Influences from Europe, the Caribbean, Latin America, Africa, and indigenous peoples have made it the ultimate melting pot.
    Our 2018 Conference is in the books.  Early attendee comments include:
    "All 4 courses (I attended) were excellent! I have attended the NODC for years and this year was hands down the best experience so far. Having it in the Hyatt makes it so much better."
    "I was very impressed with the speakers this year. Romance, Gibson, Brady, and Haas. They each knew their subjects well and gave me many pearls of wisdom."
    "They were all very good. Saw Kathy Baker, Stanley Malamed, John Molinari, Nick Hamilton , and Julie Goldberg. They all were very good, informative, and well received."
    "Bob Frazer was exceptional. All speakers met my expectations."
    "All the speakers were excellent & kept my attention the whole entire time. I learned a lot this weekend & so glad that I went."
    "Karen Baker, Lee Ann Brady, and Kathleen Brown were all excellent teachers, very good speakers, and were very knowledgeable about the subject matter they presented to us. I am very satisfied and comfortable with my CE course choices. Thank you!!"
    "Always love it. I choose this over ADA every year."
    "LOVED the new venue!"
    From museums to restaurants to world-famous festivals, there's no place in the world quite like our city.
