Post a comment by Dental Tribune America

The 104th Annual Convention of the National Dental Association (NDA) will convene July 19-23, at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel in Dallas. The NDA, one of the oldest professional associations in America, describes itself as the premier dental organization for ethnic minorities, representing more than 10,000 oral health professionals.

The NDA promotes oral health equity among people of color through advocacy, mentoring dental students and community outreach. The annual convention features C.E., a state-of-the-art product and resource center and a variety of networking opportunities for oral health students and veteran professionals alike.

Oral health professionals from across the country will gather at the annual meeting to learn the latest dental techniques and practice management solutions. Workshops will cover topics such as opioid addiction, concussion syndrome, practice management, interprofessional training and care, local anesthesia and surgical updates and the impact of the Affordable Care Act on dentistry. Featured keynote speakers include the Madow Brothers; Dr. Edna Kane Williams, senior vice president of AARP; Dr. Harry Johnson, president and CEO of the MLK Foundation; and Dr. Anissa Holmes, CEO of Delivering WOW.

Dr. Kim B. Perry, NDA’s 93rd president, said, “The NDA is off to an excellent start in 2017, addressing issues that impact communities and dental professionals of color. We will continue our efforts to secure ‘Our Place at the Table — Advancing and Advocating for the Future of Oral Health.’”

The NDA is an inclusive organization and all oral health-care professionals are welcome at NDA events. For more information and to register to attend, visit the NDA’s website at www.ndaonline.org.
