Our hybrid convention will have in person and virtual components for our attendees to participate in. The convention will have live courses apart of each channel and hands-on workshops will only be available in-person.
CDA is hosting a hybrid convention to offer an in-person and virtual experience so that dental professionals have an option to obtain their C.E. units for license renewal and shop exhibit hall specials to their comfort level. We will be following all COVID-19 state guidelines for safety to our attendees and CDA staff.
Attendees: Badge Pickup Hours
We will not be offering an On-Site guide this convention but will be offering an app with interactive floorplans and a list of all courses and speaker information.

All workshops and lectures will be ticketed for the convention. You are able to register for the courses through the registration page and pay the according fees associated with them. Please reference the registration platform for the individual fees.
Registration must be completed online in advance as no on-site registration will be available.
Presents has multiple opportunities for you to obtain C.E. credits; however, the Dental Board of California regulates 8 hours of C.E. (1 C.E. credit = 1 Hour) in one day.
CDA introduces new courses and programs at every event. See program details for the current Workshops, lectures and virtual courses.
While most of the courses are offered at no cost to CDA members, all courses must be registered for in advance. There are few courses and virtual bundles that require a fee and, therefore, must be registered and paid for prior to classroom entry.
There will be a stand-by option at the course rooms that will allow you into the room if a ticketed attendee does not enter the room by the course start time. Stand-by lines do not guarantee access into the course.
Many sessions will be pre-recorded and be presented in their allotted time. Others will be streamed live, so you will see and hear the speakers in real time. There will be a live Q&A session at the end of each course.
There will be many programs at CDA Presents, including live courses and self-study courses. View the course schedule for more information.
Please ensure you are running a system check each time you log into the virtual platform and turn any pop-up blockers off on your system and any anti-virus software. Chrome and Firefox are the best browsers to use as Safari is not supported.
You can swap courses in the registration dashboard if the course has not started. To do so, go through your confirmation email and select the option to edit your registration. Once you get to the course listing, use the boxes to the left to unselect the course first and add another. The platform will not allow you to add overlapping courses to your listing.
Please check for the virtual convention link on your confirmation email or communication that was emailed directly from CDA. The virtual platform will not be available to attendees until the day of the convention and will close 30 days after the convention (Monday, October 11).
After the courses end you have the opportunity to submit your feedback by surveys. Surveys are not mandatory for C.E. but encouraged to provide feedback to the speakers and future course selections.
C.E. transcripts for the virtual convention will be made available through your login at cda.org approximately 3 to 4 weeks after the event.
You can meet in a face-to-face environment with exhibitors showcasing their products, services and technology. Attendees may also connect in a virtual environment with exhibitors participating virtually.
