  • 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.
