The Annual Spring Meeting (ASM) has been one of the premier dental
conventions for more than 150 years. Brought to you by the Ontario Dental Association, it has become the favourite meeting place for dental professionals in Ontario. Where else can you learn, connect and network in one place?
Dentistry, like all industries, is undergoing disruption – technological, informational, and social. As clinicians, you need to keep abreast of these changes and the impact they’ll have on the way you deliver health care. This year, our theme is Navigating the Future.
This is your opportunity to hear about the latest developments in clinical, practice management, and wellness topics from expert speakers; hone your skills (or learn new ones) in hands-on workshops; see the newest and most innovative advances in dental technology from top vendors; and share experiences and solutions with thousands of colleagues from across the province. We encourage the entire dental team to sign up for a collective learning and growing experience that you can bring back to your practice.
Along with the features you’ve come to expect from the ASM – see the sidebar below – we’ve added and expanded some features that will make your experience even better this year.
