Pennsylvania's Dental Meeting 2020-CANCELED

Pennsylvania’s Dental Meeting – Canceled for 2020

Due to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA) has made the difficult decision to cancel all sessions of Pennsylvania’s Dental Meeting scheduled April 24 and April 25, 2020, at the Mount Airy Casino Resort in Mt. Pocono, Pa.

All registered attendees will receive a full refund of the fees paid.  Please allow us time to process the refunds. Exhibitors and sponsors also will receive a full refund of monies paid to PDA to support Pennsylvania’s Dental Meeting. 

The Board of Trustees and PDA staff have been actively monitoring the situation, following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and consulting with the American Dental Association. Protecting the health and safety of our members, your staff and ultimately your patients is our priority and the reason for our decision to cancel this year’s meeting. 

We regret that the annual meeting will not be rescheduled for 2020, but PDA is exploring options to bring PDA’s business meeting and town hall open forum to interested members.

If you have any additional questions, please see the FAQs on our website at www.padental.org/PDM.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this challenging time.
 

Sincerely,


Charles J. Incalcaterra, DMD
President, Pennsylvania Dental Association
