ODA 147th Annual Spring Meeting

March 1, 2014
by OH

The Annual Spring Meeting (ASM) is Ontario Dental Association’s signature dental conference and trade show. Now in its 147th year, the ASM continues to be the prominent gathering place for all dental professionals.

The ASM offers an unparalleled educational program featuring some of the best and brightest minds in the field of dentistry. Year after year dentists and their dental teams come together in Toronto to hear from speakers who not only inform but also provide insight and inspiration, covering a variety of Clinical, Practice Management and Personal Development topics.


Not only do attendees take part in the many educational programs, but they also have the opportunity to visit Exhibitors on an expansive trade show floor that covers over 75,000 square feet of dental innovation. Exhibitors, who enhance the ASM in countless ways, are an integral part of the ASM experience for attendees. Dentists and their dental team can connect and interact with over 300 exhibitors who are there to demonstrate and teach attendees about new products and technology from around the world. Attendees can touch, use and compare the newest materials and technology in dentistry today.

We believe that the essence of the ASM is its ability to provide dentists and their dental teams with a range of opportunities to connect, learn and excel. The ASM is the best platform to connect with speakers, exhibitors and colleagues, and share best practices and great experiences, all under one roof. So, come one, come all! Connect with each other at class reunions, in lecture halls or on the exhibit floor. Learn about what’s new in the science of dentistry, the techniques of practice management, or just how to stay healthy. Excel in every aspect of dentistry and your personal life.

With 11,000 + attendees, the ASM is held every year at the Metro Toronto Convention Center–South Building, Toronto, ON, Canada.

ASM continues its commitment to “green” initiatives. To reduce paper usage, speakers are very supportive of the ASM and allow us to post their handouts for ease of access by attendees. Printed handouts are not available.

Beginning April 21 until July 31, 2014, you can download PDF handouts of the speaker of your choice. As with previous years, not all speakers have agreed to provide handouts.

Plan ahead, print ahead, and enjoy your course.
