Dental meetings: The who, what and where
With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting every scheduled dental meeting, it can be hard to keep up with what is happening when. To help with that, we have a list of some of the upcoming meetings and what you can expect.
The Chicago Dental Society’s 156th Midwinter Meeting will provide access to a wide variety of educational sessions, exhibitors and even virtual time with your staff and colleagues.
