Registration Information                                                             Register Now


You can register your entire office on one registration form and pay for everyone with one form of payment!  Fill out the primary registrant’s information including the name of your dental practice, then list the name of everyone who is registering – including the dentist – and their course and event choices. If you need to add more courses or events than there is room for on one line, just take up two lines for one registrant. You can send in as many forms as you need; simply photocopy the form.

In selecting courses, please select the appropriate fee for each attendee:

M = ODA/ADA Member Dentist
NMD = Non-member Dentist
S/O = Hygienists, Dental Assistants, Office Managers, Front Desk staff, all other registrants

Remember, you must register for any free CE course that you want to attend, but you do not need to register for the free events. A ticket for Table Clinics, The BASH!, Exhibit Hall door prizes for dentists and staff, and any appropriate giveaways will automatically be included with your registration*. Individual pre-registration confirmations and packets will be sent to each registrant.

*Registrants using the free "ES" registration categories are not eligible for prize drawings


Student Participation
Proof of student status (submit copy of student ID or ASDA membership number) is required for all student-status registrations, including dental students, dental residents, dental assisting students and dental hygiene students.

Dental students pay no registration fee and may attend any CE lecture course at no cost, space permitting. Posted fees for hands-on courses apply.

Dental residents who are ADA members pay no registration fee and may attend any CE lecture course at no cost, space permitting. Posted fees for hands-on courses apply.

Dental residents who are not ADA members will be charged posted non-member fees or can join the ADA at the reduced dental resident fee.

Registration fees are waived for dental hygiene and post-secondary dental assisting classes attending Annual Session as a group. Every group of five students must be accompanied by an Instructor or appropriate chaperone while in the Exhibit Hall.  The pre-registration fee for post-secondary student dental assistants attending individually is $5, and increases to $15 on-site. Hygiene and assisting instructors, or students registering individually can call the ODA to register or for additional information.

Retired Life Member Registration
ODA members in the Retired Life category do not pay a registration fee if registered before the pre-registration deadline. A discounted $35 registration fee applies after the pre-registration deadline (August 4), and that fee increases to $45 on-site. Dentists in this category can audit any CE lecture course at no charge, space permitting; but to receive CE credit for the course, the member must pay the posted course fee.

Spouse Registration
Spouses of ADA member dentists who do not work in the dental office may register for free.

Membership Offer
Non-member dentists may apply a portion of the registration fee toward 2018 ODA membership dues. To take advantage of this offer, contact the ODA Membership Department at (614) 486-2700 or via email.

Cancellation Policy
For a cancellation refund, written requests must be received by the ODA no later than September 1, 2017. A $20 service fee will apply for each cancellation. Refunds, no matter when submitted, will be processed two to four weeks after the 2017 Annual Session. Refunds will be made via the same method of payment when possible. The Ohio Dental Association reserves the right to cancel or reschedule Annual Session due to unforeseen circumstances. Registrants will be notified.
