The dental profession is not exactly glamorous, but it is important and complex. You can add a touch of glamor while sharpening your skills at an upcoming dental event held at one of the Philadelphia area’s premier casino resorts. The 2020 Valley Forge Dental Conference is coming soon. Bringing your team to this event will enhance your dental practice and equip you to deliver state-of-the-art care to your patients.
The Greater Philadelphia Valley Forge Dental Conference is a three-day event featuring speakers, exhibits, symposiums, receptions, and other professional development opportunities. This year’s conference will be held March 4, 5, and 6, 2020, at the Valley Forge Casino Resort and Convention Center in King of Prussia, Pa.
Members of the Second District Dental Association can attend many of the workshops and other events for free. Rates for American Dental Association (ADA) members who work outside of the Second District begin at $155 per session. The per-session cost for non-ADA members begins at $255. Dentists from outside the Second District can also purchase two-day passes for $635. Special rates are available for spouses and students. Whether or not you qualify for free admission, be sure to register in advance.
All dental specialties can benefit from the program. This includes orthodontics, oral surgery, general dentistry, and pediatric dentistry. The conference is not just for the dentists in your practice. You may also want to bring the dental assistants, hygienists, technicians, and office staff from your team.
The 2020 Valley Forge Dental Conference will feature a packed schedule of workshops and other activities. You can earn continuing education credits for your participation.
Dr. Lee Ann Brady is running a series of fabrication workshops. These are hands-on classes in which participants will have opportunities to make veneers or other dental pieces. Additional costs apply for these workshops.
You can leave the Valley Forge Dental Conference knowing more about dental insurance and coding. To learn about these topics, be sure to sign up for at least one of Tom Limoli’s informative sessions.
Other workshops will cover topics like soft tissue lesions, dental implants, marijuana use, and dental marketing. Kelli Swanson Jaecks, RDH, will deliver a message called “Oxygen, Please!” about how to care for yourself as a dental professional.
Be sure to visit the Exhibit Hall during your time at the conference. Even if you don’t attend any workshops, there is no charge for entering the hall.
Various dental schools will hold receptions on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. If you attended the American College of Dentists, Pitt Dental Medicine, Temple Dental School, or another college, check to see whether there is a reception for you to attend.
If you’re coming for out-of-town for the conference, you’ll need a place to stay. If on-site rooms are booked up, or you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the conference but still within close proximity to all of the events, consider some of these options. Hotels near King of Prussia Mall should fit the bill nicely.
The Hyatt House Philadelphia/King of Prussia is a popular destination. This hotel features Hyatt Grand Beds, so you’ll be well-rested for your first session of the morning. At the end of the day, you’ll enjoy unwinding in the hotel’s 24-hour fitness room or the indoor whirlpool. The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia – Valley Forge is a nice budget option that doesn’t skimp on the amenities. With an on-site gastropub, you can come back after a long day at the conference and unwind over drinks and a hearty meal.
