The 96th Annual American Dental Hygienists’ Association Conference is being held from June 21 to 23 in Louisville, Ky. According to meeting organizers: “The largest, most comprehensive and cost-effective event for dental hygienists in the U.S., (the annual conference) is the only conference entirely focused on dental hygienists, by dental hygienists.”

All events, including two days of exhibits, will be held at the Kentucky International Convention Center, which recently completed a $207 million renovation and expansion. Located in the heart of downtown Louisville, the center neighbors more than 6,000 hotel rooms, dozens of fine dining and casual restaurants and an array of museums, distilleries, gift shops and other attractions.

The three-day event offers a broad and deep program featuring industry-leading keynotes and speakers, hands-on sessions and workshops and presentations exploring the most topical subjects shaping the future of dental hygiene.

According to the meeting organizers, the annual conference reflects the core issues of dental hygiene – seamlessly blending inspiration and practical application with an expert program boasting more leading oral-health-care minds focused exclusively on dental hygiene than offered anywhere else, along with hands-on workshops, an awards function and networking opportunities.

The exhibit hall showcases the latest products and technologies. The educational component focuses on enabling new and veteran practitioners alike to update skills by learning about the latest groundbreaking research through hands-on workshops and seminars. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a wide selection of cutting-edge, interactive continuing education courses.
