Chair Welcome

summer2017_croppedIt is my privilege to welcome you to the Texas Dental Association Annual Session. One word that comes to mind this year is NEW…a new look, new logo and our new name, the TDA Meeting. 

We are honored to have an amazing lineup of educational speakers, bringing many new courses and topics to you and your dental team. In the pages ahead and you’ll see many of your most respected speakers and many names that are brand new to the TDA Meeting. You can earn your TSBDE requirements for treating sleep apnea as well as the courses needed for both dentists and hygienists to use laser therapy.

The newly designed Exhibit Hall is the place you’ll find hundreds of exhibitors with exceptional deals for your office and team.  Let them show you all the new products and equipment dentistry has to offer.  Visit us at the new TDA H.U.B…(Helping Understand Benefits) located at the HUB of the exhibit hall where you will find the TDA Smiles Foundation, DENPAC, TDA Perks Partners and TDA Membership.  New this year, we will have a complimentary headshot booth, along with a professional hair and make-up touch up. Don’t forget our ever popular happy hour on Thursday and Friday from 4:30 to 5:30.

Join us on Thursday evening for the all new TDA Soiree, a festive party for everyone!  Meet us at the Grotto on the river to enjoy delicious food, drink, and music!  New Dentists, start your Thursday morning with our new, TDA New Dentist Breakfast!  And on Friday, new dentists always love to meet up after an exciting day of CE at the New Dentist Reception.

WOW, that’s a lot of NEW!

Registration for your favorite downtown San Antonio hotel is already open and meeting registration opens  January 3, 2017. We look forward to seeing you at the all new, TDA Meeting!
