It’s been a very long time since the American Dental Association and FDI World Dental Federation hosted a joint dental meeting – the last time was in 1996 in Orlando, Florida. This year we will once again join forces to bring you the absolute best of both our organizations, this time in magnificent San Francisco, California. We hold this meeting with support from the California Dental Association and the San Francisco Dental Society and are pleased to welcome their members as well.
How will this meeting be different from an ADA Annual Meeting or an FDI World Dental Congress? The unparalleled educational program will offer the full scope of lectures, workshops and hands-on courses from both organizations. Attendees and exhibitors from around the world will mingle on the exhibit floor and in networking events, fostering extra opportunities to learn from our dental colleagues. A combined General Session will set the stage for this exceptional congress.
When you make plans for ADA FDI 2019, do set aside time to enjoy the city. Rich in natural beauty, arts, entertainment and multicultural attractions, San Francisco is an ideal site for this historic joint meeting. Explore the city’s fascinating neighborhoods or head out to nearby redwood forests, charming Sausalito, or wine country.
Join us and be a part of something extraordinary. We look forward to welcoming you to ADA FDI 2019 in San Francisco!
