Continuing Education and Annual Conventions
Your profession is not standing still. Dentistry is constantly evolving to better meet the needs of both patients and practitioners, like you. AzDA supports an increasing number of continuing education initiatives to keep you on top of the latest tools, treatment methods, scientific research and business practices throughout your dental career.
Throughout the year, AzDA provides Arizona dental professionals a wealth of top-quality, BODEX-required CE offerings at wonderfully attractive prices. Starting with the Western Regional Dental Convention, one of the largest dental meetings in the West, AzDA perennially brings in a superb slate of speakers comparable to any meeting in the country, covering almost all aspects of dentistry. Dental professionals can also take advantage of AzDA’s Fall Conference annual retreat. In addition to first-rate speakers, attendees can look forward to enjoying five-star accommodations at one of Arizona’s preeminent hotels. Additionally, AzDA members now have the ability to record and track their CEs on their computer or mobile device - just another free perk for being an AzDA member.

Playing opposite to Spring’s WRDC, AzDA’s Fall Conference offers attendees a more relaxed, social continuing education experience. Typically held at some of Arizona’s most picturesque destination resorts, AzDA’s Fall Conference is an ideal opportunity for members to recharge and reinvigorate their minds, as well as learn from first-rate presenters.
AzDA offers a host of CE opportunities in its A/V ready classroom, located in their Scottsdale headquarters. Risk management, OSHA, infection control, chemical dependency, oral radiography, CPR, and special needs training are among the courses that are offered. Click here to view AzDA's CE offerings
