ADA President Attends Midwest Dental Conference

UMKC School of Dentistry Organizes Annual Event

The head of the 157,000-member American Dental Association is attending the Midwest Dental Conference, an annual gathering organized by the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry and its dental and dental hygienists’ alumni associations.

ADA President Robert Faiella isn’t delivering a speech during the gathering of thousands of dentists and dental hygienists. But he’ll be talking informally with dentists and UMKC students about topics that include health-care reform and its effects on oral health care.

The four-day conference at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center continues through April 14. About 3,500 attendees are expected at the conference, which includes continuing dental education, dental equipment exhibits, scientific sessions and lectures, meetings and alumni reunions.

UMKC School of Dentistry students are encouraged to attend the conference to learn about the latest innovations. Year 3 students are required to present research posters. Some students help organizers at the conference.
