Welcome to the 2018 Southwest Dental Conference!

Howdy from Dallas, and welcome to the 91 Southwest Dental Conference.  The Dallas County Dental Society is pleased to be your host at the premier dental education meeting of the Southwest.  The focus for the meeting this year is, “Inspiring Success Through Knowledge”, and the Scientific Committee has selected the highest quality clinicians for this year’s Conference, which are guaranteed to inspire you to become the most successful dental professional that you can be.  

New to this year’s meeting is an exciting Heart Health program featuring the Heart Health booth in the Exhibit Hall with the American Heart Association and international lecturer and author Mr. David Meinz, who will be lecturing on CIMT (Carotid Intima Media Thickness) and will be providing carotid artery scans in the Exhibit Hall.  This CIMT screening will include the latest technology to evaluate your risk for coronary arterial disease.

The 2018 Southwest Dental Conference will also offer excellent education opportunities not only for the dentist, but for all team members, including the excellent 360 Team Experience educational series designed by Dentsply Sirona Academy.  Practice management superstar, Dr. Roger Levin has some new and exciting programs to share with us as well. Also, for your technology CE needs we are proud to host Dr. Paul Feuerstein discussing many new and emerging technology products for your practice.

Our headquarters hotel, The Omni Dallas, provides your dental team a comfortable, convenient and affordable venue while attending the Southwest Dental Conference.  Recent property expansions have added multiple high end and casual dining options, sure to satisfy all of your culinary desires.  Downtown Dallas also offers world class shopping, cultural and additional dining options as well, to complete a wonderful weekend of dental education and fun for your office and family.

The Southwest Dental Conference is internationally renowned for its hospitality and our dedicated Silver Star volunteers are available onsite to assist you, should you have questions while visiting with us.   We also offer a convenient “mobile app” for download to your smartphone to help you manage your schedule, record CE, and allow you to receive instant notifications on planned social events, schedule and/or room changes.
