Conference Connections Program


It is our vision to provide a positive and welcoming experience to all ADEA Allied Dental Program Directors’ Conference (ADEA ADPDC) attendees.

The Conference Connections program is an opportunity to bring experienced ADEA ADPDC attendees together with new attendees. Many new ADEA ADPDC attendees are unsure of how to maximize their conference experience and the goal of this informal networking program is to help new attendees navigate the conference and form personal connections with their peers.

New Attendee

Are you a new ADEA ADPDC attendee (3 years or less of attending)? Join us for a brief orientation on Saturday, June 6, 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m., before the conference begins. During orientation, new attendees will be provided an overview of what to expect during the conference and meet fellow new attendees.

Sign up during registration to secure your spot!

Preregistration and attendance at the orientation is required for new attendees so you can fully experience the Conference Connections Program.

Experienced Attendee

Are you a seasoned ADEA ADPDC attendee (5 or more years of attending) that’s willing to show a new attendee the ropes?

Sign up to be a Connector and share your insights on the conference, add value to your experience, and help new attendees feel welcome while forming new friendships!
