  • What's new for 2023?

    (1) The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans- a stones throw away from Caesar's Superdome. 
    (2) Exhibit Hall GUMBO was a hit with attendees and exhibitors, so we're bringing it back -- DENTISTS can exchange visits with our conference exhibitors for raffle tickets to win great prizes.  So you get rewarded for just saying hi.  No purchase necessary and winners do not need to be present at the time of the drawings.
    (3) GOLDEN TICKETS -- Do you remember Willy Wonka's golden tickets?  Hidden inside three of our free conference tote bags will be a GOLDEN TICKET.  If your tote bag has a GOLDEN TICKET, you just won $100 cash.  One tote bag per registrant.  Tote bags are first come, first served. Limited quantities will be available.

The Conference reserves the right to review each registration for the appropriateness of the registration category.  Dentists who register in another category (such as Spouses/Guests) will be changed to the correct ADA Member or Non-member registration type and charged the corresponding fee.
Exhibit Hall only passes do NOT grant access to the continuing education sessions. 
Except for select categories, registrations postmarked after March 3, 2017, or online registrations made after March 3, 2017, will be assessed a $50 fee per dentist and $25 fee per person for all other registrants.  Pre-registration enables the Conference to mail your registration materials, including badges and tickets, in advance, thus decreasing (or possibly eliminating) the time you must spend in the on-site registration area.  Out-of-country registrations will not be mailed and must be picked up on-site.
The Conference reserves the right to review each registration for the appropriateness of the selected registration category. Dentists who register in another category (such as Spouses/Guests) will be changed to the correct ADA Member or Non-member registration type and charged the associated fee.  Please note that Exhibit Hall passes may be purchased only on-site and do not give the attendee access to the continuing education sessions.
Your registration data, as well as 2017 annual meeting photos and videos that include you may be used for a variety of purposes by the Conference and its assignees and licensees.  Such purposes include, but are not limited to, membership recruitment, future meeting announcements, program promotions, and marketing and commercial uses approved by the Conference.
By registering for this event, you agree to all posted registration, housing, and course cancellation and refund policies and procedures referenced on this website and your 2017 confirmation paper.

Pre-Registration Materials

For those who complete their registration prior to the mail or online deadline, registration materials, including badges and tickets, will be sent by U.S. mail prior to the Conference. All others, including materials for those outside the U.S., will be held for pick-up at the on-site registration area.

Registration Fee Includes:
    • Admission to the Exhibit Hall for both days (Thursday and Friday)
  • Admission to those continuing education sessions designated as General Session, C.E. courses in the Exhibit Hall and the Chef Cooking Demonstration.  However, each attendee MUST register for the courses he/she wants to attend so that tickets may be issued.  The 2017 New Orleans Dental Conference/LDA Annual Session features General Sessions, Paid Sessions, Hands-On Workshops, and C.E. express courses in the Exhibit Hall.  General Sessions and C.E. express courses have no additional fee to attend.  However, you must have a ticket to enter these sessions prior to the start of the lecture.  Once a General Session, C.E. express course, or the cooking demonstration begins, you may enter without a ticket as long as seating is still available.  If a session is filled to capacity once a course begins, no additional persons will be allowed to enter even if they have a ticket.  Paid Sessions and Hands-On Workshops require a ticket to enter, irrespective of your arrival time for the course.

All guests must wear an identification badge at all times.

Registrants should review all materials for accuracy and bring all materials to the meeting.  Badge holders, Program Books and Guides to Technical Exhibits will be available on site.

VISA, MasterCard, Discover & American Express may be used for online registration and registration on site. Only one registration form is necessary for each office (includes dentists, auxiliaries and spouses).  Make all checks payable to New Orleans Dental Conference.
