General Information

Register by April 1st to take advantage of lower prices!

In order to guarantee your spot and avoid higher fees, you are encouraged to register by the early deadline of Friday, April 1st. After this date, fees increase and space is more limited. Each year several courses sell out so don’t risk missing out! For questions regarding your registration, contact the CSDA at 860-378-1800.


All requests for registration cancellations/refunds must be made in writing and received no later than Monday, April 17th (a $25 cancellation fee will be applied). After this date, no refunds will be granted.
All courses and events require pre-registration. Your badge will provide you access to the courses. NO TICKETS REQUIRED FOR COURSES.

Don’t forget to bring your credentials with you when you come to the meeting! Badge and/or ticket replacement will result in a $15 re-printing fee. If tickets to any of the social functions are lost, they will need to be re-purchased at the full ticket price.


We use a course code system to make registration easy. The course code noted with each description and also repeated in the “Schedule-at-a-Glance” is used to make your selections on the registration form or when you are ready to register online. Please note: all courses are lecture format unless stated otherwise in the description (i.e. workshop or hands-on).

As you look through the courses, you’ll see that each one includes a “recommended audience” notation. Here are the codes to help you make choices that are best suited for you:
D = Dentists/Dental Students
H = Hygienists
A = Assistants
O = Office Staff
L = Lab Technicians
ALL = All attendees

Handout materials that correspond with 2022 annual meeting courses will be available as downloads via the Mobile App. If you wish to have them with you on-site, be sure to print them and bring them with you.

Attendee programs will be available on-site at the information kiosks indicating meeting room locations and times and each room will have the appropriate signage just outside the entryways. This information will also be available within the mobile app!

CE credit hours are noted with each course description throughout this booklet. Your badge will be scanned upon entering and exiting the course as proof of attendance.

Please be sure you are scanned both IN and OUT of your courses as this will ensure you are counted as attending the session in full and will receive your corresponding certificate. It is very important you have both scans for us to verify completion of the session and to issue the certificate. CE certificates will be sent via email 7–10 days post event to the same email address you registered with. One certificate will be emailed and it will include any and all CE sessions you were verified as attending.
