We are so excited to be back in person and to introduce the new look and feel of our annual event.
In years past attendees had to choose whether they wanted to participate in the House of Delegates meetings, visit the exhibit hall, or attend continuing education. New for 2022 and 2023, the House of Delegates will be held as a part of the Richmond Lobby Conference in January to allow all attendees at the Dental Showcase to be able to experience more and focus on connecting with other dentists, engaging with nationally renowned speakers through continuing education and discovering vendors and tools to help take your practice to the next level in the exhibit hall.
We have added new events and put a new spin on popular events that we know you won’t want to miss. Back by popular demand is the Friday Power Hour in the exhibit hall where you can connect with peers and vendors over mimosas and snacks.
New for this year, on Saturday night get ready to be surprised as fellow VDA members compete in Dentists Have Talent, hosted by VDA President Dr. Scott Berman. We know so many of you have incredible talents and passions you pursue outside the office, and you’ll have a chance Saturday night to put yours on display (or to cheer on the brave dentists who do).
The VDA is also happy to be partnering with the Virginia Academy of Pediatric Dentistry on this event.
To close out the event we will hear a unique perspective from Mr. Hoan Do, a former American Ninja Warrior and motivational speaker who partnered with Lays for the Share Smiles Campaign. He will share a special message about overcoming adversity and embracing practical strategies to develop resilience & mental strength that will be sure to send dentists and dental team members alike back to work on Monday with a fresh perspective.
