admin Featured News

The CDA is proud to present its 131st Annual Session June 8-10 in Crested Butte. Attendees can partake in CE courses, network with colleagues and, of course, enjoy one of Colorado’s most beautiful and quaint towns.

Speakers and Courses

The CDA offers a range of educational and CE courses for attendees of the Annual Session. We make every effort to present high-caliber speakers. Speakers’ presentations in no way imply endorsement of any product, technique or service. The CDA disclaims responsibility for any material presented. Here’s what’s offered this year.

  • Changing Family Dynamics: The Influence of Society and Parenting Styles on Behavior Guidance
  • Clinical Pearls for Treating Older Patients: Techniques for the Entire Dental Team
  • Burnout and Stress in Dentistry: Are They Inevitable?
  • Lunch and Learn! More Than an X-ray: Screening Beyond Teeth

  • Managing Space Issues in the Developing Dentition
  • House of Delegates Keynote Speaker: Columbine Shooting Survivor Austin Eubanks

House of Delegates and Resolutions

Represent your component as a delegate to the CDA House of Delegates on Friday, June 8. If you’d like to be a delegate, contact your component president or the CDA (303-996-2844 or molly@cdaonline.org). Prior experience is not necessary, and we encourage anyone interested to participate. The role of a delegate allows you to learn about and take action on issues affecting your profession. It’s also a great opportunity for new dentists to get involved and network with other dentists statewide. The deadline to submit your name is April 2.

The House of Delegates also will vote on resolutions brought forth by CDA members. If you or your component would like to submit a resolution, do so in writing to molly@cdaonline.org by April 2. Download the New Resolution Form.
