2016 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition Program

View the Full Program


Throughout health care, and certainly in dental education, the environment in which we live and work is shifting. Whether it’s federal reform, demographic trends, new collaborative care models, or changes within our individual institutions, our faculty, administrators, students, community partners and others must break new ground.

How we leverage the opportunities of this new world, and how we work with one another to navigate it, will be the theme of the 2016 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition, “Shaping Tomorrow, Together.”
